Baest: launch new single and video for 'Vortex'!
Baest:   launch new single and video for 'Vortex'!

Danish death metallers BAEST proudly present you ‘Vortex’, the second single taken from their forthcoming debut album “Danse Macabre”. Set for release on August 17th, 2018 on 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. 

BAEST comments: “Gathered from the whirlwinds of decadence, this is the most aggressive track coming out of the den of BAEST so far. The epicenter of the Danse, the embodiment of the seven sins combined, we give you “Vortex”!”

Directed, filmed and edited by Søren Kahr, the ‘Vortex’ video takes you literally into the den of BAEST, as it was actually shot at the group’s rehearsal place perfectly illustrating the song’s savage intensity – enjoy the carnage! https://youtu.be/YFXLO0R3exs
