Fast, low-tuned deathcore from Gqeberha, South Africa.

Ghast is a deathcore band from Gqeberha, South Africa. Their sound blends low-tuned deathcore, death metal, and hardcore, with touches of thrash, grind, and metalcore. The band's music is themed around environmental collapse and the various traumas of life under systems of austerity, institutional oppression, and social hatred birthed in misinterpreted religious values and class warfare. Formed in 2021, Ghast has been committed to creating hard-hitting music with a meaningful message. After releasing their debut album Dawn, and split EP with their hometown brothers in Boiling Point, they focused on creating powerful, engaging live performances - subsequently gaining a dedicated following of friends who appreciate their unapologetic approach to heavy music. After releasing a split-EP with Boiling Point and singles throughout 2023, Ghast aims to follow up on their debut with a full-length come 2024. In the meantime, they are proud to announce their latest single, "Dysania". Released independently via Direnoise on the 3rd of November, the band aims to release subsequent singles leading up to their sophomore release and to tour South Africa and abroad, come 2024.
