BAEST, whose moniker translates to ‘beast’ or ‘brute’ in the band’s native language and fits just perfectly to the group’s vicious sound. Highly influenced by bands such as Bloodbath, Grave, Entombed and Dismember, who are renowned for their savage Boss HM-2 pedal abusing guitar tone, BAEST have a deadly old school backbone and combine with their own creative edge and incredible, ferocious live energy.
Having formed just three years ago in 2015, the quintet played over 40 shows just in their first year of existence and meanwhile has performed at festivals such as Copenhell, Roskilde, Royal Metal Fest, Eurosonic and supported bands like Hatebreed, Dying Fetus, Entombed A.D. and Illdisposed. After the independently released “Marie Magdalene” EP in 2016 and last year’s “Crosswhore” single, the Aarhus based band is now gearing up for the release of their first full-length, which was released in Summer 2018. 'Danse Macabre' was immidately the best selling vinyl in Denmark and has already sold in vast amounts and streamed over 250.000 streams and views.
With BAEST can expect an old school death metal sound, honoring the genre’s forefathers, perfectors and legends, but with a brutal and conceptually true aura to it. This is death metal with a timeless appeal.
