Oakland based thrash metal maniacs GHOUL have announced the release of their next opus titled, Dungeon Bastards this July. Look for the album to drop on July 29, 2016 via Tankcrimes Records.

From The Press Release
Creepsylvania’s favorite hooded, cannibal splatterthrashers, GHOUL, will return with their fifth studio album this Summer. Fittingly titled Dungeon Bastards, the eleven-track audio abduction was recorded and mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City) at Antisleep Studios in Oakland, California, mastered by Dan Randall (Impaled, Annihilation Time, Fucked Up, Necrot) at Mammoth Sound in San Francisco, California, and comes adorned in the ghoulightful graphics of Mark W. Richards of Heavy Hand Illustration (Pig Destroyer, The Black Dahlia Murder, Toke, Black Fast). With Dungeon Bastards, the metal punk maniaxe in GHOUL will rip your flesh with speed and riffs… before eating it.
GHOUL‘s Dungeon Bastards will rear its mutinous head from the subterranean bowls of Creepsylvania on July 29th, 2016 on CD, vinyl, and digital formats courtesy of the sound assassins at Tankcrimes Records.
In the meantime, sample first single, “Ghoulunatics,” at THIS LOCATION.
