HELLBASTARD   
"SONS OF BITCHES"
SELFMADEGOD RECORDS / PATAC RECORDS

The legendary United Kingdom Punk / Thrash Metal / Crust band HELLBASTARD are
back. This time around the band comes at us with a 5 song EP, which will be released as a
CD by
SELFMADEGOD RECORDS & on vinyl from PATAC RECORDS. These guys
are the originators of the Crust genre and the first to coin their music as such. They formed
back in 1986 and have been unleashing their brand of chaos ever since. I love bands that
break the mold and form new styles and I grew up on the Punk / Thrash / Crossover style of
music as it was being born. I love bands that play this style and
HELLBASTARD plays it
better than just about everyone. The music is fast paced, chaotic and dirty sounding, just the
way it should be. In 1992 the band unfortunately broke up but reformed in 2008. These
guys have been a fierce force of much great music ever since. I just think of all the great
music we could of had in those years of their break up. These guys blend
SLAYER styled
Thrash Metal with
AMEBIX styled Crust and early SUICIDAL TENDENCIES &
BLACK FLAG styled Punk to come up with one amazing sound. The music here on
"SONS OF BITCHES" nods back to their early days, but with a fresh aggressive style and
sound. This is one band that deserves to be in every extreme music fans collection. The
music scene needs a strong kick in the ass and these guys are glad to do it! One amazing
little EP that packs a strong punch, that you will gladly want to receive over and over
again!!!
