At long last, a timeless classic returns: BESTIAL WARLUST's pivotal debut album, Vengeance War 'Til Death, now seeing release on deluxe digipack and cassette through HELLS HEADBANGERS! Widely considered one of the first "war metal" albums - if not THE first, actually - BESTIAL WARLUST's debut was a shockingly violent and utterly barbaric slab of black metal that literally had no peer upon its release in 1994. It spawned countless imitators in the two decades since that original release and even furthered the "bestial metal" subgenre so prolific today, but there's simply no substitute for the original - and HELLS HEADBANGERS couldn't be prouder to reissue it alongside the special Storming Bestial Legions LIVE '96 album. SATANIC WAR METAL...BESTIAL fucking WARLUST!!!
"BESTIAL WARLUST were indeed stocked with an arsenal like no other. Their moniker, the cover artwork, the verbiage, the look, the sheer sawn-off, noise-annoys oblivion they sought and then wielded with an iron fist…this was WAR METAL at Year Zero, and it’s captured brilliantly. The sound itself is a weapon; barbaric crush is substituted for conventional riffs, and they wander about in a drunken haze of chaotic abandon. Even more garish and exaggerated than Blasphemy’s, the short/sharp/shocked bursts of ‘guitar solo’ are the accidentally avant-garde covering fire." - ZERO TOLERANCE magazine WAR METAL special
