Sea Bastard - Scabrous

Sea Bastard are a Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal Band from Brighton, UK

The members are:

Guitars - Oli Irongiant
Bass - Steve Patton
Drums - George Leaver
Vocals - Ian 'Monty' Montgomery

So the UK's most dangerous Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal Band - Sea Bastard are back with their new album - Scabrous. A pummelling and brutal 55 minute affair that will prove why they are one of the finest Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal bands the UK has to offer at the moment.

We have featured these hugely talented bastards twice already with their excellent debut - Great Barrier Riff and last year's amazing follow up - Sea Bastard.

So 12 months later they are back with Scabrous. Another brutal affair full of loud and heavy pounding riffs with awesome pitch perfect death metal vocals to match. Ian is at his most scariest best on the album. He is the perfect embodiment of Satan like vocals backed by an even more demonic brotherhood specialising in the dark art of the Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs.

Nothing much has changed since their last excellent album. Sea Bastard still deal in epic filth decaying sludge metal riffs with enough power to cause you nightmares until next Halloween. Though Sea Bastard include some mighty fine grooves to headbang too.

First track - Nokken - is a 17 minute epic to prove they have lost none of their brutal power. To tell you the truth the band have become slightly more demonic than last time. And I loved every brutal second of it.

Play this album at full volume to get the full effect. The Mighty Sea Bastard are here to claim your soul and there is nothing you can do about it. Though the album's standout track has to be the brilliant 20 minute plus epic - Metaphoric Possession - which starts with a slow paced creepy vibe before Sea Bastard unleash hell on earth on an unsuspecting listener.

This track is worth the album download alone. It has all the ingredients for a Sea Bastard classic. Creepy vocals and riffs played against a violent backdrop of filth based riffs. Though the band have included a breathtaking guitar riff to prove they are hugely talented musicians in their own right. Maybe these talented bastards have indeed sold their souls to Satan to possess true talent which shines through out this outstanding album.

Well I have gone on long enough. So do you want an album full of creepy riffs from one of the UK's finest Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal bands with enough power to cause Satan headaches. Well this is the album for you. Sea Bastard have excelled themselves with Scabrous. I can't wait to see what they come up with next year to scare the hell out of us here at Sludgelord.

You can download this now on Buy Now Download on BandCamp. So do it now. If you like what you hear then download their excellent other releases.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
