Danish death metallers BAEST, whose moniker translates to ‘beast’ or ‘brute’ in the band’s native language, are excited to launch the first single taken from their forthcoming debut album “Danse Macabre”. Set for release on August 17th, 2018 via Century Media Records, “Danse Macabre” offers an intense Messe Macabre uniting influences from the likes of Bloodbath, Dismember, Bolt Thrower, Entombed and 90’s Morbid Angel with uttermost savagery.

As first single, ‘Crosswhore’ – the album’s opening track – has now been launched, check out the video here:

BAEST comments: “Some of you out there might already know ‘Crosswhore’ since we already put out that track ourselves a while ago. Now, to properly introduce us to Century Media’s audience, we proudly present you the album version and are excited to kick off the presale for our debut “Danse Macabre”. If you want death metal, BAEST will make sure, you’ll get it!”
