Hellbastard will be touring is support of Feral released last Summer via Patac Records. Captured at the prestigious Hellfire Recording Studios (Slayer, Motörhead, Orange Goblin, Napalm Death etc.) in Derbyshire with Ajeet Gill (Warlock UK, Slab, I Am Colossus, etc), Feral includes guest appearances from Andy "A. Droid" Wiggins (ex Amebix), Rob "The Baron" Miller (ex-Amebix) and Andy Sneap (ex-Sabbat/Hell) and is unlike any other modern crossover album. An adrenaline shot of pure punk energy, filtered through some of thrash metal's intricacies sans any of its overblown ego, this is primal, back-to-nature shit; no half measures. As the album title suggests, this is a force of nature that refuses to be tamed, and will sweep everything before it asunder, rending it apart with its violent rhythmic contortions. A social hand grenade jammed in your teeth, literally blowing your skull apart with endless possibilities.

Forged in 1985 in the North East of England in the midst of Thatcherism, Hellbastard set out to play what they wanted to listen to themselves.... too "metal" for the punks and too "punk" for the metallers the band went on hiatus in 1992 before officially reuniting in 2008 and continue to bring a relevant lyric and sound to counteract against, mediocre sub-standard radio friendly, safety-rock.

Feral is out now worldwide on CD and digitally via PATAC Records.
