May the Curse Bind

Rated 4/5 (80%) (9 Votes)

The United Kingdom's Ghast play a classic style of simple Black Metal on their debut album, May the Curse Bind, with one exception; the vocals of Arrrrrrrach. His evil, screechy rasp at times sounds truly tortured, like a soul burning in the pit. This ramps up the emotion quite a bit, and gives Ghast's music an added measure of individuality.

Other than the vocals, May the Curse Bind follows some well worn Black Metal paths. Fast, double kick blast beats alternate with slower, soul-crushing passages. Ghast's music is more on the Thrash side of the aisle, which gives them a certain degree of melody. There's really not much to distinguish the five songs on May the Curse Bind from one another. Suffice it to say, this is competently played, slightly above average Black Metal. Nothing special, but you could certainly do worse.
