Ugly God Bastards
At first listening it’s rather recognizable the influence of the so called “Bay Area” thrash metal of the 80’s with elements recalling the wider scene of the American Thrash-Death metal of the 90’s mixed with some shades of that hard core/punk scene which developed in New York during those years.
UGB actually play a musical genre they like to call “Ugly Metal”, to terrorize all the listeners with sharp sounds, punching rhythms, grave vocals and lyrics written with the aim of annihilating the most solid and unchangeable values on which our society has laid its foundations, but which actually hide a virus which proliferates in their innermost depths.
But there’s no sadness in all this, ‘cause UGB invite everyone to join the mosh pit, headbang, jump, scream... and laugh!

By their 1st album “Ugly Fairy Tales”, Ugly God Bastards introduce their Ugly Cynical Philosophy of what they call “Reversal” or the aim to reverse all the values of the so-called Modern Society. But… what does “ugly” mean? It’s just the opposite of beautiful, pretty, lovely and all those terms which nowadays automatically refer to a standard way of living based almost exclusively on globalized mass marketing even more shallow and empty than the purest aesthetic canons of the past. Then it’s necessary to return to a primordial Chaos, starting to reverse all the fairy tales of our childhood, not as an act of denial, but as the purest gesture of opening our most intimate door and let our personal chaos wake up and come out like a carnival mask, making fun of everyone … even of ourselves!
