CAVE BASTARD — which unites current/former members of Cattle Decapitation, Gutrot, Ritual Torture, and more – released their The Bleak Shall Devour The Earth debut in 2018. A sonic manifestation of atrocities, inhumanities, and corruption, the album combines the band’s bleak imagery and outlook with devastatingly brutal riffs and earthmoving rhythms setting the tone for a voyage into the apocalypse. Declared Decibel Magazine, “The Bleak Shall Devour The Earth is an absolutely furious album that draws from destructive deathgrind to doomed-out sludge, an intense debut LP to say the least.” Visit CAVE BASTARD’s Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.
