Ghost Bath - "Burial" Depressive Black Metal

Next Article : By Sacco Jul 27, Nightlife Music Monday is a weekly SmartShanghai column, serving up songs from bands living and making music in China or coming to China, or thinking about coming to China, or whatever.

It was a bit more difficult sorting through the men (Editor's Note: compared to the women) to come up with a 10 “best,” “current,” and “American born,” Hollywood. Read more...


Welcome to this scorched earth of a fire pit we call Shanghai. Flash back to my mom showing up to my first high school keg party.

Ghost Bath is an American black metal band from Minot, North Dakota, formed in They have released three studio albums and one EP to date, combining influences ranging through black metal, post-metal, and shoegazing. They gained notoriety for claiming to be from China and marketing.

Oh man, that encounter took me down about 10 notches in the rigid '90s social hierarchy of the day. If my guess is correct, this new policy is really due to a fearless Tiger Mother who stormed the Mansion gates dragging her 15 year old out by the scantily clad outfit she changed into at the McDonalds bathroom before hitting the party. Also, as the poster reads, there is no more "Bagging for Free Drinks"? Finally, think twice before you decide to cool down with a canonball in the pool because that will run you a stiff rmb fine.

4 Mar Ghost Bath, a North Dakota band that presented themselves as Chinese, made some waves this week for exactly that reason, and they're far.

Oh Mansion you know I kid and I wish you the best of luck with your growing pains. After that we will discuss the ethics of a little metal band called Ghost Bath who gained notoriety and even a record deal claiming to be from Chongqing while in fact they live in North Dakota and just made that shit up. Dima helped set up their China tour and this show is a real double—sided metal blade treat. The Tomsk based band delves into various metal formats leaning more towards the black. While laying down heavy guitars and solid drums they also include acoustic guitars and interludes that give the band diversity.

Formed out of the ashes of Siberian punk bands StompOut and Louder Than Words, these four boys from the heart of the motherland decided to evolve their style into a more developed palette.

Can you imagine going to see a band called StompOut in Siberia? That has be a rough show. Neverending Winter also has no fear about using electronic samples to accompany their music. That's something I was hesitant about before, but over the past couple years have come on board with. I think our Siberian friends said it best with this quote from Lands of None: We march this endless roam, across the lands of none". To me, they represent a more core sound that echoes some of the great '90s hardcore bands like Unwound and The Locust.

While their Bandcamp lists styles that include post-hardcore and screamo, G. Their kind of hardcore was a separate scene that was developed by bands like Man is the Bastard or Unwound. K instantly gives you that feeling of a legit DIY band that you want to start a zine with and maybe host a Food Not Bombs in the park. K — "Drops" Dualism by g.

Before telling him "get the hell out of my store you long haired charlatan", a quick discogs. Pest Productions is based in a town called Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province. I had heard about the label when I wrote about this band Ghost Bath a couple times over the past year. The band claimed to be based in Chongqing and released an album on Pest Productions last summer.

The ambiguous dark metal outfit started to get attention after a Pitchfork writeup in April of Well, after looking back into Ghost Bath it turns out last April it was revealed the band is actually from North Dakota, USA and for all accounts has never even been to China. Now one of the bands biggest self-promotion tactics is that they will not reveal their identities and that people should like their music basic purely on the sound.

However, claiming to be from Chongqing and putting Chinese characters on the album is clearly misleading. The whole "you should only care about the music itself" argument only works with pop music. Plus, there are groups like the electronic artist Burial, who has remained unknown for the past decade, with only rumors about the producer's identity and origin.

Well Ghost Bath have been receiving a shit storm the past few months sparking a debate on the importance of transparency in metal. We need to be fucked with every once and a while and the music is solid. However, I won't be so tolerant with the next group that tries this.

Being that the label is based in the middle of nowhere, it took a couple days to track down someone who has actually met the reclusive label head. After getting his WeChat and some back and forth, I was able to confirm his location.

My biggest concern was over the band Zuriaake itself, who started this mystery for me. Even though they have been releasing material for over eight years, the band had never played live. They were scheduled to play the Metal Fast last March in Beijing but that was shut down on the day of the event. Just how far does this scandal go?

Was the show shutdown to keep the sham alive?

{REPLACEMENT-(Зайцев.нет)-(web-climat.ru)}The local-ish band's origins have been a source of contention, strife, and comedy since they burst onto the global metal stage a few years ago. After making creative compromises in a previous post-hardcore band, Dennis Mikula was realizing his dark vision of marrying post-rock riffing and polished production with depressive suicidal black metal DSBM — an atmospheric, lo-fi strain of black metal as drenched with despair as it sounds. The little headbanger on the prairie created a Bandcamp page for his one-man project, Ghost Bath, as lonesome musicians are wont to do. Inspired by mythic black metal act Silencer, which was shrouded in bizarre insane asylum lore, Mikula wanted to keep his identity and whereabouts a mystery.

    It is a pity, that now I can not express - I hurry up on job. But I will return - I will necessarily write that I think on this question.
