Bast’s sound is a very interesting one indeed, drawing an equal amount of influence from avant-sludge outfits like Neurosis and Eagle Twin as they do progressive black metal like Altar Of Plagues, Winterfylleth etc. The trio don’t fit comfortably in either the black metal or doom niches however, with their bleak yet psychedelic vibrations existing in a world of its own. Bast have already shared stages with the likes of Nachtmystium, Ufomammut and A Storm Of Light.
Sludgelord: „Spectres is a brilliant début album that shows Bast are on the verge of greatness. Catch them while you can as these guys are going to be huge in the years to come.“
Metal-Observer: Heavy in practically every manner the word can be employed. Emotionally bogged down, monolithic in stature, smothered in percussion and great, empyreal riffs, Bast’s Spectres is a wobbling pyre that tips the clouds. And when it falls, oh! the immensity of what you’ll hear, it is sure to take you and everyone you know down with it.
