Riot Radio – Black Fast – I Conspire

“Try to cling to every moment and it washes with the tide…”

St. Louis, Missouri blackened thrashers Black Fast are riding a new wave of American thrash along with Skeletonwitch, Battlecross and Revocation, following in the footsteps of elder statesmen like Goatwhore and The Black Dahlia Murder. Their sound takes a decidedly blacker tone though, both in the foreboding lyrics and tortured wail of singer Aaron Akin and the overwhelming despair conveyed in the swirling of speed picking guitar harmonies and grimy bass chug of newly released track “I Conspire”

Black Fast are currently touring with previously mentioned co-conspirators Revocation and Goatwhore, and their first full length record, “Terms of Surrender” is out today on eOne Music.
