" What should one expect from SPLATTERTHRASH? Well, actually, the title defines it perfectly. It's a combination of blood splattering, gut stomping atmospheres intertwined with saw to the bone thrash. Don't let that fool you though, as Ghoul can change it up as quickly as blood spilling out of a gutted pig. While songs like "As Your Casket Closes" and "Gutbucket Blues" have more of a traditional thrash sound, songs like "Bury the Hatchet" and "Cult of the Hunter" often cross into death metal territory and while there is a good deal of treading the thrash and death metal line on this album, the band trade off between the two flawlessly. If you dig on thrash and death metal but want something a little extra, Ghoul provide it courtesy of the ghastly surfabilly/rockabilly instrumental "Psychoplasm".

" Ghoul will appeal to not only the fans of horror themed music (horror punk, horror rock, horror THRASH!) but to fans of straightforward thrash and death metal as well. The band is a great combination of imagery (check out some videos of these guys) and top-notch musicianship.

I highly suggest checking these guys out if you haven't already.
