Ghoul Announces “Weapons Of Mosh Destruction” Tour Dates

Ghoul – the hooded hooligans of Creepsylvania – are bursting blood vessels to finally announce the second installment of the Weapons Of Most Destruction Tour.

Set to launch this April, team Ghoul will lay waste to seven unsuspecting metropolises throughout the West Coast alongside hardcore thrash mutant accomplices, Iron Reagan, and experimental punk/hardcore rippers, Occultist.

Following their pillage, the band will spread ghoulish delectables all over Oakland headlining the first night of this year’s edition of Brainsqueeze Fest. Full details on the trek are available below.

Proclaims Ghoul from the band’s underground headquarters: “Loyal numbskulls, the Weapons Of Mosh Destruction Tour is rearing its ugly head again, and Ghoul is looking forward to burning your towns, raping your pets, and drinking your beer as we unmercifully bombard the West Coast of your United States on our way to the Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze in Oakland, California. In the unlikely event that you are lucky enough to survive the blitzkrieg assault of Iron Reagan and Occultist, you will be decapitated and disemboweled by Ghoul’s razor sharp riffs, and after that, our razor sharp razors. All survivors will be brought back to the catacombs in cages, where Ghoul will keep you alive on a cocktail of morphine and energy drinks while we carve away chunks of your flesh to devour while you watch in horror… I may have said too much. Come to the show! Nothing bad will happen to you!”

CANNABIS CORPSE & GHOUL – SPLATTERHASH (SPLIT)

Releases January 7 through Tankcrimes Records. Ah, Cannabis Corpse and Ghoul: one, a weed-themed classic death metal worship band, the other, a Giallo-obsessed thrashing group of gorehounds. Whoever thought to marry these two bands in split-record matrimony should be applauded. At least, that’s what I thought before I heard the songs. Cannabis Corpse perform the […]
