California's Ghoul have returned with a new album which continues the death metal, grindcore, thrash and crust and this is a review of their 2016 album "Dungeon Bastards" which will be released on July 29th by Tankcrimes.
Dark sounding synths start off the album along with some horror movie samples and after a minute the music goes into more of a heavier thrash metal direction along with some melodic old school metal style guitar leads and after awhile the music starts to speed up and introduces blast beats onto the recording.
The vocals bring in a good mixture of grindcore screams and death metal growls as well as some punk style back up gang shouts and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and crust influences and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the songs also mix in a great amount of 80's and 90's influences in with a more modern sound and the whole album also sticks to a very heavy sound.
Ghoul creates another recording that takes death metal, thrash, grindcore and punk and mixes them together to create something very old school and heavy, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover horror movie themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ghoul and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bringer Of War" "Ghoulunatics" "Word Is Law" and "Abominix". 8 out of 10.
