The speed of thrash, the growls of death metal, the lyrics of a demented comedian, THIS IS GHOUL. Like a good horror movie, Ghoul strikes you with shock and awe but not in the horror aspect but in the talent aspect. Speedy riffs well timed beats and kick ass solos. - taken from Metal Archives
Ghoul is without a doubt, one of the best bands that the west coast has ever spewed up. With all this retro thrash metal stuff going on right now, I figured this just seemed appropriate. I'll be posting up their other releases too, so check back!
I originally started this blog with the intent to create an archive of New Orleans/Louisiana based bands demo's, EP's, full lengths and live recordings. My primary focus was to feature a little bit of everything going on in this great city. There are many bands past and present that have never gotten the recognition that they (in my opinion) truly deserved.
So I figured why not start converting all these demo tapes and etc. and share them with the world? But as I kicked the idea around on a few message boards and with friends, I decided to not just limit the page to Louisiana.
So here you will find artists from all across the globe, some may be well known, others may not. Here at Nola 504 and More, the Krewe and myself all have very unique musical tastes, which I think helps our page really stand out.
Yes, we may feature a lot of metal, but we also have punk, country, jazz, rockabilly, etc. Musical "gumbo" so to speak; meaning a little bit of everything. So, if you are/were in a band from Louisiana, or anywhere else in the world, and care to share it with the rest of the world, drop one of us an email. We'd love to check it out!
