Talk about fury! The ingredients? Unlimited rage and blackened, crusty Hardcore Metal. Throw in some melodic elements and ready is Moloch, the first full length studio album of the German band Ancst.
Their somewhat unusual credo of wanting to be – and I quote “anti-fascist, anti-sexist, anti-religion, death to NSBM” adds some additional spice to the overall delivery. Now, whatever their beliefs or drivers may be that keep their boat afloat, the quality of their rage-ridden #metal just blew me away. From within their somewhat noisy scream landscape, the blackened and steel-hardened #metal hammer Ancst throw at you just takes you along a pretty wild ride, compelling you to listen to the bitter end, glued to your seat. IT will be stronger than your will to switch off the player.
The band hails from Berlin and is in existence since 2011. Being totally underground, they released a series of cassette-only EPs, some splits and compilations, now backing everything up with this newest record. Ancst is signed to Halo of Flies, Vendetta, WOOAAARGH, and Yehonala Tapes for distribution and support of the album.
Interested? Check them out on Bandcamp. But hold on to your hat, there is a cold wind blowing down there.
