Vastum – Patricidal Lust (Review)

VastumVastum are from the US and play Death Metal; Patricidal Lust is their second album.

How’s that for some album artwork, eh? What’s all that about then? Top work.

Vastum specialise in Old-School Death Metal with a dollop of Doom and Crust thrown in for good measure. Incantation and Autopsy should be your first reference points. Vastum are their own entity of course and they play this style of Classic Death Metal remarkably well.

The songs are harrowing tales of the dark side of humanity and the music is the perfect representation of this.

Each track is well-written and everything on this release sounds powerful and ancient. The singer bellows with fervour and the music rages and dirges in equal amounts.

The solos are well executed and add spice to the Doomy riffing. Leads add colour and overall these songs have a lot of substance to them, with the longer length of the songs allowing the band to cram a lot in.

As the Classic Death Metal style goes this is a strong album full of good songs. Put this on your list of albums to get this month, you won’t regret it.
