Formerly known as ELITIST, BASTARD FEAST emerged on top of a new scene growing rapidly in the United States of America. Hailing from Portland, Oregon the quartet has its roots in the Hardcore scene. Yet under the influence of early Death Metal in the vein of MORBID ANGEL and a strong dose of Black Metal their sound shifts to something as fresh as radical. The crusty spirit of Sludgecore transparent in chaotic structures and moments of uncontrol is vomited upon the world with screams of anger and disgust by vocalist Joshua "Josh" Greene. This is met by the burning hatred of blazing guitars carrying the force of Death and darkness of Black Metal. Loud and passionate, BASTARD FEAST forced the world to listen first with "Elitist" EP in 2009, which was followed by a split 7" with TRANSIENT in 2011. Having shared stages with GAZA, TRAP THEM, TRANSIENT and others, the Americans unleashed the fury of debut album "Fear in a Handful of Dust" (2011) on Season of Mist, under the ELITIST moniker. In the band's own words: "This is for those of us who observe and recognize the evidence of evil in faith, hypocrisy of government and the poisons of herd mentality. We'll scream our message of discontent from bloody throats and open wounds”.
