The masked menaces in GHOUL, today offer up a taste of their forthcoming Hang Ten EP. A gore-splattered surf orgy of sound, the limited edition six-song (mostly) instrumental 10″ features guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir.
Get down with your ghoulish self with “Kreeg,” now staining the airwaves of Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION.
Recorded by Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of Splatterhash, Splatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering with cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine, Hang Ten features songs written exclusively in their unique brand of surf metal the quartet has previously only dabbled in. Picking up where Transmission Zero left off, the EP relays the tale of a Creepsylvania in ruins, and the terrible power struggle that ensues between two vicious motorcycle gangs.
In an ongoing effort to vanquish souls, team GHOUL will be pillaging seven credulous metropolises throughout the West Coast later this month on the Weapons Of Mosh Destruction II Tour. The band will be joined by their hardcore thrash mutant collaborators in Iron Reagan as well as experimental punk/hardcore rippers, Occultist. Following their imminent obliteration, the band will spread their ghoulish sonic debauchery all over Oakland headlining the first night of this year’s edition of Brainsqueeze Fest, which features more than a dozen ear-bleeders including Municipal Waste, Final Conflict, Negative Approach, Fucked Up and Cannabis Corpse.

“Why, it’s quite remarkable. I’ve never heard the like. Is it surf? Not quite. Is it metal? Maybe. Is it jazz? No, that’s a stupid question, unfit for a real life noted musical anthropologist such as myself. It’s from Creepsylvania, you say? Ghastly country. Absolutely crawling with gypsies. Say, old chap, who let you in to my office?” — Cambridge University musical anthropologist, Dr. Mantle Bannister PhD
