BLK OPS formed from the magma of the Austin, Texas metal scene in late 2015, comprised of CHAMP MORGAN (ex-KILL THE CLIENT) on vocals, noise, and theremin, MARK KEY on guitars and backing vocals, and NEIL BARRETT on drums, samples, and live visuals. Forging a path to a terrifying new sonic landscape drawing from noise metal, doom, grind, and otherworldly audiovisual hallucinations. From beneath the slabs of the subterranean suburbs of San Diego emerges society's scum: CAVE BASTARD. Heavy, apocalyptic, and loud, the band was formed in 2014 by TROY OFTEDAL (ex-CATTLE DECAPITATION, PIGLIFE) and NICK PADRON (ex-BRIDGE JUMPER) out of a love for everything heavy and loud. They proceeded to search out the rest of the bastards needed to execute their vision of sonic devastation, soon adding rhythm guitarist CHASE FERGUSON (ex-Bridge Jumper), vocalist STEVE PEARCE (GUTROT, RITUAL TORTURE), and drummer STEVEN REED (AGE OF COLLAPSE). The band began writing and honing their tone, creating a massively destructive soundscape in preparation for the coming of The Bastard. Edition of 200 copies on black vinyl. Includes a download.
