Thrash metal punks GHOUL re-release rare record Hang Ten; announce European tour

1 min read

The notorious masked marauders of Creepsylvania, GHOUL, today soil the masses with a repressing of their critically-lauded Hang Ten ten-inch. Hang Ten was initially released on Record Store Day 2014 and quickly solid out. But you can dry those tears today. A limited pressing of 300 is now available on pink splatter wax as well as 1000 on electric blue.

Hang Ten is a six-track (mostly) instrumental EP featuring guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector, and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir. Hang Ten was recorded by Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of Splatterhash, Splatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering and sports cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine.

Additionally, today marks the official unveiling of GHOUL‘s Wall Of Deathseven-inch!  Originally released as part of Decibel Magazine’s flexi disc series, the track “Wall Of Death” adds a dimension to the story line of last year’s Dungeon Bastards full-length. Proclaimed Digestor upon its release “‘Wall Of Death’ is a song that tells a chilling tale of savage dictatorship, brutal oppression, and large-scale unreinforced masonry. Enjoy, won’t you?”

The Wall Of DeathB-side features “Humans Till Deth,” taken from the ongoing soundtrack to The Humans comic. Created by Keenan Marshall Keller and Tom Neely, the comic is set in the ’70s and follows a motorcycle gang’s exploits, but with a twist; in this world, the gangs are all apes and actual humans are primitive beasts kept around for sport.

GHOUL’s “Wall Of Death” seven-inch comes in a variety of color variants – 150 in black, 350 in white, 500 in half black/red and 1500 in blood red – and is currently available for RIGHT HERE.

But wait! There’s more. GHOUL will drag their dead overseas for part one of a European takeover that includes a stop at his year’s Hellfest. GHOUL will return to Europe later in the Summer for Obscene Extreme in Czech Republic, RIIP Fest in France, and In Flammen in Germany as well as additional headlining dates. Stand by for further info.
