Gfrast - EPs (2015-2018)

Gfrast is a crust/doom/electronic band with cello from Vienna, Austria

A blog reader emailed me about this band back in January 2016 and somehow I missed it. Luckily, I stumbled on that email today and realized what a mistake I had made.

From what I can tell, the tracks available on their website come from two 3-song EPs: one from 2015 and one from 2018. On their website, they say they hope to record a 9-song LP soon. They're also playing on April 27, 2019 at ABC Fest in Vienna.
