1. The Ruins of Beverast - Rain Upon The Impure
2. The Ruins of Beverast - Foulest Semen Of A Sheltered Elite
3. Ascension - Consolamentum
4. Vastum - Patricidal Lust
Here are some sample songs from each album:
The Ruins of Beverast - Soliloquy of the Stigmatised Shephard
The Ruins of Beverast - Blood Vaults (II - Our Despots Cleanse the Levant)
Ascension - Consolamentum
Vastum - Patrical Lust
I was a massive fan of Vastum's last album Carnal Law and and not embarrassed to say that Patricidal Lust has barely left my CD player since I got it. The band noticeably takes some inspiration from legendary band Nuclear Death, not only in the music's dark atmosphere and style of lyrics, but also pleasantly in having a female vocalist (Yay!) alongside a male vocalist.
Also, I can't really talk about The Ruins of Beverast without mentioning that he has a stonker of a new album out: Blood Vaults - The Blazing Gospel of Heinrich Kramer (Cryptae Sanguinum – Evangelium Flagrans Henrici Institoris). The sound is way creepier than his older stuff, but really atmospheric and beautifully put-together.
