Ghoul are a band from Oakland, California that plays a mixture of punk, thrash, death metal and grindcore and this is a review of their 2013 ep "Intermediate Level Hard-Core" which was released by Tankcrimes and all of the songs are cover tunes.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in t he way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine punk, thrash, death and grindcore together to create a sound of their own, while t he lead guitars are very old school sounding punk/metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from hardcore style shouts, deep death metal growls and high pitched grindcore screams, while the lyrics cover political themes, as for t he production it has a v ery strong, powerful, heavy and old school sound to it.
In my opinion Ghoul are a very great sounding hybrid of punk, thrash, death metal and grindcore and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Americanized" which is a Gwar cover and "Propaganda Control" which is a N.O.T.A cover. RECOMMENDED BUY.
