Riff Police! Pull Over! #84: Putrascension Vs The Ghost Inside!

There can’t be many Metal Heads on Planet Earth who don’t know the story of The Ghost Inside. It’s one of those hard work to relative success to tragedy and struggle that has us rooting for them when they return to the live arena for a handful of highly anticipated shows. Two years after their 2008 debut “Fury and the Fallen Ones” they returned to the frey with “Returners” in 2010 and were joined by a trio of guests in Brendan Foley of Betrayal, Mat Bruso of Bury Your Dead and Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant. It was arguably the album that catapulted them onto the World stage and with the love for Mat Bruso, who was out of Bury Your Dead and pursuing a career as a School Teacher at the time, got a lot of interest in the Metallic Hardcore scene. It’s a cracking album and one of it’s many stand out moments is “Between The Lines“. Fast forward 9 years to 31st October 2019 and the release of “Hate Lust“, two track single from New Jersy Black Metallers Putrascension. That’s right. Black Metal. What does Black Metal have to do with Melodic Hardcore? Well, usually nothing. But check out the introduction of “Unfolding The Essence” and tell us it doesn’t sound familiar… …and just remember kids, before you go ranting and raving home to your mother about any items in the Riff Police feature, it’s all in fun. We don’t take it seriously. Life’s too short for beef. Unless it’s “Killer Beef” by Enemy Mind. We’re all over that. This piece has been sponsored by a can of Dr. Pepper. What’s the worst that can happen?

Hate Lust” by Putrascension is out now and available over at bandcamp
