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!
