Today, Creepsylvania’s beloved masked mutants, GHOUL, unleash their Noxious Concoctions upon planet earth. Boasting five delightful hymns, the EP serves as the first new studio output from the Creepsylvanian splatterthrashers since 2016’s critically adored Dungeon Bastards full-length.

All tracks on Noxious Concoctions were digested, dissected, fermented, and cremated by the members of GHOUL, except “1-900-DTH-LINE,” originally composed by Funerot. The EP was recorded by Scott Evans at Antisleep Audio and Sharkbite Studios, mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, and includes gang vocals by The Moron Cavern Shakled Choir and “swamp hag” vocals by Laurie Sue Shanaman.

Noxious Concoctions is available on CD and digital formats as well as limited 12” vinyl in the following three color variants:

Die Hard – Swamp Green concoction vinyl includes Noxious Concoctions cocktail book and GHOULunatics swizzle stick.
Wacky Splatter – A Tankcrimes mailorder exclusive; Black And Bone mix w/ Swamp Green Splatter
Orange Crush – Retail edition

“Warping the spirits of Accused, early Kreator, and Scream Bloody Gore era Death through their cadaverous vessels, GHOUL have harnessed the dark power of thrash and crossover to create a wonderful cacophony that will seize control of your soul and make you want to slam uncontrollably throughout your abode until completely satiated and spent, you pass out in a pool of your own vomit and viscera.” – Mass Movement

“Incorporating elements of thrash, death, punk, hardcore, and grindcore, Noxious Concoctions might only last a little longer than a quarter of an hour but it still manages to cram in so much decomposing goodness without ever feeling overloaded. A short, sharp shock of brutal, horrific fun.” – Ghost Cult

GHOUL shines here again ripping off the cobwebs. If you have never heard of GHOUL, welcome. Plan to get a sweet, sacrilegious sample of death/thrash. And lease do not misinterpret my presentation of GHOUL as a joke band. No problem with having fun with the job at which you excel.” – New Noise

“…short and fun… there’s not a ton to deconstruct, but every track is a banger.” — MetalSucks

“…a brief but enjoyable serving of high-octane metal which show that the Californian quartet can still hang with their genre counterparts.” – Distorted Sound

“If fun thrashing madness gets your blood pumping, then here’s one that’s definitely for you. Saddle up and mosey on down to Shotgun Gulch.” – Last Rites

GHOUL deserves the attention they’ve gathered over the years, because their own definition of ‘splatterthrash’ has been consistently outlined in nearly all of their work. It’s, at times, ironic, self-deprecating, disgusting, wrapping the listener in reels from moldy VHS tapes that sat in a creeper uncle’s basement closet upon shag carpet stained with liquids better left undetermined… There are few bands that are this aware of their own gimmick and constantly play it off like they’re unaware. Neither cocky, nor entirely serious, GHOUL shows they’ve likely got years of vomiting upon us until their death rattle sets in.” – Deaf Sparrow
