Trio Re-release last years album
BAST is a trio specialising in an unhealthy blend of Black Metal and Doom. With a flair for experimentation and emphasis on storytelling.
Their debut full-length ‘Spectres’ – originally released on Black Bow ( Slomatics / Conan / Fister and others) and Burning World records in early 2014– weaves together a hatful of heavy and a pinch of psychedelia to take you on a journey of Godless riffs and crippling atmosphere. Following it’s initial release, Bast embarked on two tours across the UK and Ireland with Conan and Ageless Oblivion, made festival appearances at Damnation, Into The Void (NL), Doomed Gatherings (FR) and FOAD, as well as one-off performances with YOB, Pallbearer, Indian, Oathbreaker, Wodensthrone and Horse Latitudes, among many others and, having secured slots on Roadburn (a watershed moment in any heavy bands lifetime) and Incineration festivals, show no sign of slowing down in 2015.
This repress of ‘Spectres’ (both on black and also on gold vinyl) is a signal of Bast’s intent, to work hard AND sell records without selling out – proving that there is life aplenty in the UK heavy music scene.
