San Diego’s extreme metal/grind quintet CAVE BASTARD – which unites ex/current members of Cattle Decapitation, Gutrot, Ritual Torture, Bridge Jumper, Temblad, and more – begins their West Coast US tour this Friday, July 27th, in support of their pulverizing The Bleak Shall Devour The Earth LP, out now through Accident Prone Records. As the band prepares to embark on the trek, an official video for the LP’s “Purity Through Oblivion” is now playing below.
CAVE BASTARD’s The Bleak Shall Devour The Earth was created at Audio Design Studios in San Diego, recorded and mixed by legendary engine-ear, Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Brutal Truth, Cattle Decapitation) with assistant engineer Jordan Andreen, mastered at Trakworx by Justin Weis, and completed with artwork by Varises Otak.
The ultra-bizarre video for the album’s “Purity Through Oblivion” was directed by Neil C. Barrett of Novel Concept TV (Today Is The Day, Primitive Man), accenting the end-time tones and approaches in the band’s brutalizing style of apocalyptic/dystopian metal.
