Bastard Priest
Ghouls of the Endless Night
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 25 November, 2011
Playing time: 37:41

Fortunately the band did something with the biggest point of criticism I had with their 'Under the Hammer of Destruction' album. The production was too bad to really enjoy their music. Musically the band didn't change a lot on this new album, but the better production makes it a lot better. Still the band plays Scandinavian Death Metal in the old school style: think Nihilist, early Entombed, Dismember, Grave.

Fast drumbeats, contagious riffs, D-beats and some crust elements form the elements of their music. Nothing new at all, but executed in a brutal and filthy way. Add the low and slow grunting grave voice of Matt to it and you have an authentic old school death metal album. Most of the time the songs are very fast, but in "Poison" they even step on the brakes and sound very doom-like.

Food for old-school death fans.
