BASTARD FEAST’s forthcoming full-length was recorded, mixed and mastered by Stephan Hawkes (ATTILA, EXOTIC ANIMAL PETTING ZOO, RED FANG) at Interlace Audio (RED FANG, CHINO MORENO, CHELSEA GRIN) in Portland, Oregon. Regarding the new album, guitarist Taylor Robinson said “The new record is a change in the path for us. We have dialed in our sound even more and sold our souls to hell to channel more darkness. The album is lyrically bleak and filled with contempt. Adding a second guitar and finding our new bass player Jesse has completed our brotherhood for this band. We feel that everyone who will hear this music will be drawn in…It’s truly hateful and inspired.”

Fusing an unhealthy dose of death metal with the heavier elements of Doom, a dissonant take on hardcore, and the visceral aspects of black metal, BASTARD FEAST have continually followed their DIY ethos. The band has been seen touring the United States relentlessly both on their own, and with such notable bands as: GAZA, ROTTEN SOUND, BLACK BREATH, LANDMINE MARATHON, and THE ACCUSED, and more.
