I first got to witness London-based death/thrash/extreme metal crew AGHAST! in a dodgy Brighton pub on my birthday in 2009 and was stunned by two things. Firstly, by lead guitarist Christiaan Verheij Van-Wijk’s mental spandex trousers, which were then replaced by an even crazier pair when the band went on stage. And secondly, by how blisteringly-fast and gripping their blinding riffs were.
