Official press release:

With the release of their hugely anticipated new full-length, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, now less than one month away, New Orleans devious metal merchants, Goatwhore, unleash all out Hell with "Schadenfreude," currently corrupting the airwaves of mega music portal, Loudwire.

Literally meaning the pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others, ninth cut, "Schadenfreude," is at once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Notes vocalist Ben Falgoust of the debaucherous hymn: "This song represents the downward spiral of man at his most vile. The seething element of satisfaction when others around fail and fall, then the gratitude that this sick rejoicing has accomplished in the overall end."

Adds Loudwire: "'Schadenfreude' is a classic take-no-prisoners, leave-no-survivors type of Goatwhore track. The band's black metal influence is at the forefront of 'Schadenfreude,' as guitarist Sammy Duet builds a dark atmosphere with his open chords and sinister progressions, while vocalist Ben Falgoust explores his full guttural range throughout the track."
