Ghoul profile picture

Ghoul, the planet’s most beloved villains of Creepsylvania, will take to the streets again this fall on a mega live takeover supporting GWAR. The infiltration begins October 20th in Richmond, Virginia and will decimate nearly four dozen cities through December 10th in Detroit, Michigan. Additional support will be provided by US Bastards on all dates, as well as Doyle and He Is Legend on select dates.

Issues Ghoul’s Digestor of the upcoming expedition: “We are overjoyed to once again join our space-brethren in GWAR in their quest for total domination and planet-wide mass murder. We look forward to feasting on the wrecked and ruined carcasses of their fans, drinking all the drinks, doing most of the drugs, and satisfying our alien overlords not only sexually, but also emotionally. Let the bloodletting commence!”

Ghoul continues to tour in support of their delightfully deviant Dungeon Bastards studio offering. Released via Tankcrimes in July 2016, the record consumed Billboard Charts upon its first week of release debuting at #11 on the Heatseekers Chart, #13 on the Top Vinyl Albums Chart, #13 on the Hard Rock Chart, and #27 on the Independent Albums Chart. The band also earned prime spots on year end lists globally including the #19 position of Decibel’s Top 40 Albums Of 2016, the revered rag issuing of the album, “For those who lived through Nancy and Ronald, S.O.D. and D.R.I. Ghoul’s sound is like finding a shoebox of discontinued candy, all of it fresh to eat. That said, the gonzo midnight movie vibe and cartoonish energy on Dungeon Bastards perfectly articulates the apocalyptic anxiety that we’re all sharing in 2016.”

Dungeon Bastards was captured and mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City) at Antisleep Studios in Oakland, mastered by Dan Randall (Impaled, Annihilation Time, Fucked Up, Necrot) at Mammoth Sound in San Francisco, and wields eleven hemorrhage-inducing tracks of the band’s now-patented Creepsylvanian splatterthrash.

Dungeon Bastards is out now on CD and digital formats as well as slime green and blood red vinyl with a gatefold jacket that opens into the Dungeon Bastards board game. Players take turns advancing through a Creepsylvanian map; the first one to get to end of the map and jump the Wall Of Death wins.


“…the gonzo midnight movie vibe and cartoonish energy on Dungeon Bastards perfectly articulates the apocalyptic anxiety that we’re all sharing in 2016.” – Decibel

“Dungeon Bastards isn’t just Ghoul’s finest album to date – it’s one of 2016’s strongest albums to date, a pipe bomb hybrid of thrash, death metal, and hardcore that is effortlessly aggro and fun. Dungeon Bastards is the kind of record that will have you looking cockeyed at anyone who claims not to like it.” – MetalSucks

“Infused with the savage technicality of thrash behemoths and legendary crossover beasts such as Blind Illusion and Attitude, the energy and power of early Death and Sodom and the morbid humours of Gwar, Ghoul’s lifelong mission has taken another crucial step toward world domination. Thrashing time is here.” – Mass Movement

“The production here is crisp and choppy and adds to the fun of this release… add in the sing-a-long choruses and you have a pretty beaking cool release. 7 Fucking Pecks” – Decibel’s For Those About To Squawk column

“…the best thing Ghoul has put out to date.” – Ave Noctum
