Marsh Utterly superb album. One of the best UK bands at the moment. Brilliant live too! Favorite track: Outside The Circles Of Time.

Chris Mander Grabs you by the balls and drags you through a pit of broken glass. Heavy as a battleship and more viscous than mercury. Favorite track: Spectres.

Knut Ebeltoft Great album, dynamic and produced so good that it shows how enabled these guys are. Going to see them here in Oslo with Pallbearer tomorrow (30. June '15). Hope they shred through Psychonauts.

Update: And they did. Amazing.

Conan guitarist/vocalist Jon Davis has announced that the first album to be released through his newly launched Black Bow Records label will be the debut full-length from innovative UK black metal/doom hybrid Bast.

Bast’s sound is a very interesting one indeed, drawing an equal amount of influence from avant-sludge outfits like Neurosis and Eagle Twin as they do progressive black metal like Altar Of Plagues, Winterfylleth etc. The trio don’t fit comfortably in either the black metal or doom niches however, with their bleak yet psychedelic vibrations existing in a world of its own. Bast have already shared stages with the likes of Nachtmystium, Ufomammut and A Storm Of Light, so it was only a matter of time until Conan’s Jon Davis caught wind of their extraordinary sound.

Davis himself had this to say about the band:

“It is with great pride that I can announce the first release on Black Bow Records. The first album to be recorded at Skyhammer Studio, with Chris Fielding on production duties. Visuals were lovingly crafted by Craig Bryant (vocals / guitar). This will be released on black vinyl, limited to 300 copies.

“This album sounds like a thousand bloodied hands, smashing your face from your skull.”

The album is a joint release between Black Bow Records and Burning World Records, with Black Bow handling vinyl and tape cassette, while Burning World will handle CD and online.
