Archgoat is a Finnish black/death metal band formed in 1989 by brothers Ritual Butcherer on guitar and Lord Angelslayer on bass and vocals. The members of Archgoat openly identify with the philosophy of Satanism and the Occult as expressed in their lyrical content, which also consists of anti-Christian themes.
Archgoat formed in 1989 in Turku, Finland, though they did not release their first recording, titled Jesus Spawn, until 1991. Then in 1992, the band landed a record contract with Necropolis Records. In 1993, their EP, Angelcunt (Tales of Desecration), was released. Later that year, Archgoat entered into a full-time studio deal with Necropolis. However, after their recording sessions, a disagreement with terms of their contract resulted in the band refusing to release the finished material to the public.
In 1993, Archgoat began an extensive hiatus, citing their belief that they did not belong in a “commercial” black metal scene. The band did not reform until 2004, when they released their 1993 material as a 7″ EP, titled Angelslaying Black Fucking Metal, through Hammer of Hate Records. Their show, First Live Black Mass, concert was recorded in Finland in 2005. Drummer Sinister Karppinen became the band’s permanent drummer in this time. Their debut LP Whore of Bethlehem was released in September 2006, and they embarked on a European tour in spring 2007 with Black Witchery. A live split of this tour was released as Desecration & Sodomy in 2008.
Their newest EP, titled Heavenly Vulva, was released in October 2011; their latest album, titled The Apocalyptic Triumphator was released in January, 2015. In July 2015 it was announced that longtime drummer Sinister Karppinen left the band and was replaced by VnoM.

Whore Of Bethlehem is the debut album by Finnish black metal band Archgoat released in 2006 on Hammer Of Hate Records. Although Archgoat formed in 1989, they would not release their debut until 2006, due to differences with their original record label, Necropolis Records. Many EP recordings were in between, as well as a very long hiatus that began in 1993 and ended in 2004 due to the belief that they did not belong in the commercial black metal scene.
