Sometimes bands can completely take themselves out of ever having any mainstream exposure with a particularly ridiculous or offensive name. Goatwhore is a perfect example. Their music really is not so offensive that they would fly completely under the radar, although it is certainly aggressive and angry. But it's their name that has completely taken them out of ever receiving much publicity other than metal magazines. Which is just fine. The band was formed by ex-Acid Bath and Crowbar guitarist Sammy Duet, who wanted to find a way to explore more extreme forms of metal. Boy did he ever succeed with Goatwhore, the sludgy black/death/thrash outfit from the swamps of Louisiana.
