Caged Bastard – ‘Straight Hate to God’ Cassette version Review By “The Quietus”

Caged Bastard’s debut Straight Hate To God (originally a Bandcamp-only release in 2018) was recorded as a three-piece with Australian vocalist Mariam Benjemaa and American drummer Lee Fisher. I’ve elected to review this, rather than the project’s latest and fully solo album Scour, because the former fits the basic vibe of this column more than the latter’s smoggy blackened industrial, but they’re both TIP!s and mark Oun out as a dude with a fresh vision.
