"Osculum Infame" or "The Shameful Kiss" was the pledge of allegiance that witches applied to the devil's anus, according to the perverted fantasies of preachers in the times of the witch hunts. This fits perfectly the kiss-my-ass-attitude BASTARD FEAST display on their sophomore full-length of the same name. Formerly known as ELITIST (under which moniker they released a highly acclaimed self-titled EP and debut album "Fear in a Handful of Dust"), the Americans added Death and Black Metal influences to the crusty spirit of Sludge from day one. Yet today they are upping their game with "Osculum Infame". Be prepared for a brutal thrashing and lesson in devastation, which yet manages to balance out with a heavy dose of melancholy and passion capturing the essence of classic Metal. Burn in fire!
