Latest release: "Fear in a Handful of Dust"
Release date: Mon, Jun 20 2011, US Tue, Jun 21 2011
Portland's ELITIST have officially changed their name to BASTARD FEAST. Taylor Robinson (guitar), Joshua Green (vocals), Nickolis Parks (drums), Justin Yaquinto (guitar), and Jesse Aspy (bass) are currently writing new material for a forthcoming release on Season of Mist.
Regarding the name change, guitarist Taylor Robinson said: "BASTARD FEAST represents us upping the ante on the evil, disgusting music we make. The name Elitist has been buried and BASTARD FEAST is the portal through which we will now dispel our hatred".
Recent footage of the band playing a brand new song can be viewed here.
In June 2011, BASTARD FEAST released the album ‘Fear in a Handful of Dust’. The full-length is available on Season of Mist’s e-shop, as well as digitally and on Bandcamp (with updated artwork). Regarding ‘Fear in a Handful of Dust’, BASTARD FEAST said: "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."
Fusing an unhealthy dose of death metal with the heavier elements of Doom, a dissonant take on hardcore, and the visceral, morose aspects of black metal, BASTARD FEAST have followed their DIY ethos, touring the United States relentlessly both on their own, and with such notable bands as: GAZA, LANDMINE MARATHON, and THE ACCUSED, and more. The upcoming dates with ROTTEN SOUND, DROP DEAD, BLACK BREATH, and more are as follows:
BASTARD FEAST Tour Dates
Portland May 11th @ branx w/ Rotten Sound and Black Breath
Portland May 31st @ Ash Street Saloon w/ Bell Witch
Oakland August 17th @ Metro Opera House w/Drop Dead, Noothgrush, Graves at Sea and Brainoil.
