America’s heavy rock doomsters VESTAL CLARET release today their first videoclip off “The Cult of Vestal Claret” their last release out on Cruz Del Sur Music early May 2014.
The song chosen is “The Stranger”, one of the most catchy yet disturbing tunes of the album; for the visual side we were inspired by the Masters of Horror’s episode “The Fair-Haired Child” which partially depict most of the upsetting lyrics of the track.
The release of “The Cult of The Vestal Claret” introduced the band to a wider audience thanks to a mature yet in-your-face song-writing. Some of the songs have been already released by Vestal Claret on limited edition split albums, but have been completely re-recorded for the occasion. Featuring the charming vocals of Phil Swanson, Vestal Claret’s sound has been enthusiastically described as “the jangling melancholy of Trouble, the epic stomp of Candlemass, the creative freedom of Sabbath”, but also raised some controversy in the media when some songs’ lyrics were described as “nauseating”.
You will not get a better chance to judge by yourself by checking the video clip above or listen to the entire album streaming on bandcamp!
On the occasion of their American official release date, Cruz Del Sur Music is offering full-album streaming for its May releases:

The title track “The Cult of Vestal Claret” is one of the strongest compositions on the album. Enjoy its monolithic yet eclectic rhythmic session, the dark, precise and cutting riffs, and the charismatic, preaching voice of Phil Swanson, the Ceremonial Master of The Cult of The Vestal Claret!
The album has been recently described by UK’s Doom Metal Heaven as “the jangling melancholy of Trouble, the epic stomp of Candlemass, the creative freedom of Sabbath, add a big handful of classic 1980′s metal and off they go, exploring places where no light shines.“
We believe the description fits quite well with what you listened on this premier of “The Cult of Vestal Claret”.
