How often do you see cross-over potential in a death metal band? Never? Well, this particular band not only made the front-page of GAFFA, the most popular music magazine in Denmark, they have topped the Danish music vinyl-only chart and climbed to #22 on the regular album chart, and they have been called the biggest death metal hope out of Denmark.
Baest (the Danish word for beast or brute) plays old-school, no-bullshit death metal. Evil, downtuned songs full of guttural growling, double pedals and ice-cold riffage.
A lot has happened since Baest played Roskilde Festival’s Rising stage in 2017 (watch some footage here). Back then they had released the impressive debut EP Marie Magdalene. Their ferocious live energy coupled with a solid batch of songs led to a devastating set that turned the crowd into a living whirlpool. The show fuelled the band when heading into the studio to finish the recordings for what would become their debut album – released by esteemed label Century Media.
Baest’s debut album Danse Macabre brings the dance of death to life with a tour-de-force, not just in death metal, but in music with clenched fists in general. And it’s a bull’s eye! The album has reaped numerous death stars in reviews all over and it’s winning over new fans every day.
Baests musik er skabt til at blive spillet og oplevet live. Det er fra en livescene, at bandet har vundet deres konstant voksende fanbase. Hvis du nogensinde har været til en Baest-koncert, ved du, hvad vi fabler om. Sceneerobringen, det smitsomme kraftudtryk, de kloakstinkende og bloddryppende sange og den vilde energi, der er mellem band og publikum, er alle ingredienser i et show, der staver m-a-g-t-d-e-m-o-n-s-t-r-a-t-i-o-n.
Bæstet er sultent, og det er fodringstid på Roskilde 2019!
