12" The Trembling Voices of Conquered Men LP #105142
Release Date: March 10, 2022
These are high quality LPs that are imported from the best plants in Europe. There are three unique colour variants, with each one of them being strictly limited to 75 nos. each. The thick, 350 gsm gatefold sleeves have a metallic effect all over and there's even spot UV lamination done on parts of the layout.
Please bear in mind that these colours are for representational purpose only and the actual products may differ. Also the shipping date is tentative because of the huge mess at the vinyl plants around the world and it's possible that the LPs will be shipped out a bit later, depending on the backlog at the pressing plants.
Australian black/death metal band Vahrzaw have been perfecting their sound since the early '90s and creating a blend of the two styles that doesn't sound like anything else out there. At this stage their music has evolved enough to make it sound almost progressive in nature, where they take the best elements of both the styles, throw in some thrash metal elements, a tinge of melody, and create their own palette and go about their inimitable way of expressing themselves using unique and vivid brush strokes with colours both familiar and bold. It's likely to get lost in their deceptive, constantly changing, labyrinthine structures which fool the listener into thinking he's been there before and the next minute he's contending with a completely different soundscape. None of it comes across as jarring just because it's so coherently and expertly done and he's compelled to experience it all over again to make sense of this phenomenon, this illusion. It's easy to see that the fourth full-length by these criminally underrated veterans is brilliantly written and despite being rooted in the old sound, it not only stands the test of time but urges one to revisit it and attempt to decipher and fully understand its full scope and genius.
