AGHAST! are a UK based band from London. They have a reputation for putting on an incendiary and charismatic live show. They are currently working their way up through the UK's underground, carving out a niche for themselves since 2008.
Their name is spelt in capitals and with an exclamation mark. This came from a promoter in Leeds who initially booked them for one show, which became three nights, one after the other. By the end he billed them as "and AGHAST! again" and it stuck.
They play extreme metal and are often wrongly billed as death metal or thrash when in fact they are closer to metalcore than either of these genres. They have been reviewed in Kerrang! Metal Hammer, Terroizer (Covermount CD) and Zero Tolerance (also on the CD).
Their intense live show has hospitalised two and three members of the band have been injured seriously on stage… MAKE SURE YOU CATCH THEM BEFORE THEY BREAK!
They have e.p. named Afterlife Crisis, and three new tracks are to be released in April 2011.
