VASTUM - Patricidal Lust LP (SPLATTER)
Vastum's ‘Patricidal Lust' has been ripped from the muse's womb through turmoil and strife, reflected not only in the morbid hyper-realism of the album's content but in the making of the record itself which presented scenarios of devastating real life tragedy, numerous delays, departed members and a sense of frustration by all involved. It's an album born in pain. Nonetheless, Vastum's second full length album is noticeably heavier, darker, more abusive and altogether more mentally calamitous than its predecessor ‘Carnal Law'.
The repress LP version of Patricidal Lust features original cover artwork by Daniel Butler of Vastum on the front/back, printed on a metallic silver background instead of the original white. Paolo Girardi's painting is included as a gatefold insert with lyrics/photo on the reverse side.
