Ghast is a metal/hardcore band hailing from Qqeberha in South Africa. Originating as a DIY project by members Justin and Matt during the COVID-19 lockdown, the band recruited additional members and eventually self-recorded and released their debut album Dawn in 2021. After a follow up ‘split-ep’ release with South African hardcore outfit Boiling Point, Ghast see the release of their latest single Lawless on Mongrel Records.
Grinding riffs and furious high-octane drums hit that sweet spot of classic metal workouts and hardcore intensity, boasting an incendiary compound of speed, savagery, proficiency, and chemistry that belies the band’s relatively brief amount of time together.
