Originally a digital EP released through Bandcamp in 2019, GOD'S BASTARD's “Last Standing Village” is such a precious jewel of progressive black metal that it deserved a physical edition and, with it, much more recognition than what it's gained so far.
Expertly mastered by Colin Marston, “Last Standing Village” contains three tracks, three steps of a cathartic journey slowly developing through a constant, breathtaking crescendo of crooked guitar riffs and devastating drums, entwined together in creative ways. GOD'S BASTARD combine the barbaric approach of the hardcore genre with a black metal fury, alternating moments of light and darkness like in a psychotic, emotional rollercoaster.
Singer/guitarist Drew Hays (previously in FLOODS) and drummer Lev Weinstein (KRALLICE, ANICON, BLOODY PANDA) march inexorably through the pain of existence towards the last standing village, a shelter where all the wounds will finally be healed.
