Solitude & Sin Stunning album - superb lyrics and song writing! Love the folky hint on some tracks, and the gorgeously bleak atmosphere. The mix of bleak and upbeat works perfectly, the album flows well; I want more of this style, only thing I would add is more guitar solos. Favourite tracks: all of them. Favorite track: Sorrow.

FDJ Easy on the ear doom/occult grooves seasoned with generous pinches of folk, goth and good old hard rock,. Favorite track: Empty.

last vinyl before doomsday This is the best release that Vestal Claret has produced thus far. Pastoral, mature and doomy, it is evocative and rich. Hope it gets a physical release in the near future!

Wear my hat! This has really blown me away. I've been following Vestal Claret since the early days and this is quite possibly their best thing yet. Hopefully a worthwhile label will do the decent thing and give us a physical release before long. Favorite track: Sorrow.

Jesse Back and sounding more epic than ever with a touch of folk, but still with that wicked groove. Favorite track: Edges of Sanity.

Empty 03:41
Empty Hid in a dark lonely place, never see the light again Leaving such an empty space, a void that has no end. No love in its place No hint remains nor trace In nothingness there is no view No forward to look through. Thrown away the cast aside Emotion here is left to die Without it shouldered no burdens beared Kept inside the nothing there. Barren hollow vacant field of forgotten antiquities Buried and lost now astray these distant memories. No love in its place No hint remains nor trace In nothingness there is no view No forward to look through. Thrown away the cast aside Emotion here is left to die Without it shouldered no burdens beared Kept inside the nothing there.

Graey 06:03
Graey As much as here as much as gone Into the dusk out of the dawn As wicked as which way may come Blocks all that may be set by the sun. There's only glances of shape and form The grey enhances the oncoming storm No one can see you in the light You disappear into the night Your shadow's black as it is white. As much as here as much as gone Into the dusk out of the dawn As wicked as which way may come Blocks all that may be set by the sun. There's only glances of shape and form The grey enhances the oncoming storm No one can see you in the light You disappear into the night Your shadow's black as it is white. There's only glances of shape and form The grey enhances the oncoming storm No one can see you in the light You disappear into the night Your shadow's black as it is white. No one can see you in the light You disappear into the night Your shadow's black as it is white. Your shadow's black as it is white.

Shadows 02:41
Shadows Longer days now burnt out the sun Forever's the night with only darkness to come Even still shadows cast over me Raining tears my heart it still bleeds. Barren inside bitter is cold Despair entwined and wrapped in throe Whether this now a curse or a spell Suffering come to grips in this Hell. I walk a lonely broken man With open arms but empty hands I'm not seeking sympathy Just getting lost in my own misery. I walk a lonely broken man With open arms but empty hands I'm not seeking sympathy Just getting lost in my own misery I'm lost in my own.. Smothering darkness blind agony Drowning breathless without empathy Dolor despondent sadness sorrow Regret for yesterday remorse tomorrow.

Sorrow 05:19
Sorrow Sorrow is my sake by name There's no one else that I can blame Solecism at every bend Its only sadness that can never end. I will always be alone It's the only thing I've ever known There's too much pain inside of me To overcome or to set me free. I feed from this a familiar place Find comfort here lost in my own space So alone that I disappear No one can ever find me here. I will always be alone It's the only thing I've ever known There's too much pain inside of me To overcome or to set me free. Loneliness is the love that I realize Unconditional and it never dies Loneliness is the love that I realize Unconditional and it never dies.

Burn 03:19
Burn Gonna start a fire Just to watch it burn My life is a disaster Some things ill never learn. Stoking an inferno Burn it to the ground. Surrounded by the chaos Another boring day Harvester of discord I know no other way. Stoking an inferno Burn it to the ground. My life has turned to ashes Crumbling to embers til there's nothing left Windswept and wayward All but is forgotten by a god that's never blessed. Gonna start a fire Just to watch it burn Harvester of discord I know no other way. Stoking an inferno Burn it to the ground Burn it to the ground.

Abandoned 03:43
Abandoned Thirsty, cold, hungry wear Struggle to move frozen with fear Whelmed in lament shrouded in pain Losing my mind and nearing insane. Abandoned lost alone where I lie Turn your back leave me here to die Abandoned lost alone where I lie Turn your back leave me here to die. Madness reigns futile fight Desolates this empty life Desuetude conclusion drawn Disillusion promise is gone. Abandoned lost alone where I lie Turn your back leave me here to die Abandoned lost alone where I lie Turn your back leave me here to die. Thirsty, cold, hungry and wear Struggle to move frozen with fear.

Melancholia 04:26
Melancholia Woeful forlorn Melancholic cathart cry I hide in darkness When I can't close my eyes. Lamenting world That I can't understand Mournful nearly No strength left to stand. Only my death It can set me free Truly escape my reality. I'm bound inside By these heavy chains That wrap so tight I can't stand the pain. Woeful forlorn Melancholic cathart cry I hide in darkness When I can't close my eyes. Lamenting world That I can't understand Mourful nearly No strength left to stand. Only my death It can set me free Truly escape my reality. I'm bound inside By these heavy chains That wrap so tight I can't stand the pain. Woeful forlorn Melancholic cathart cry I hide in darkness When I can't close my eyes Lamenting world.

Edges of Sanity Sharp edges of sanity Cut deep inside of me Torn piece by piece apart This is where madness starts. Splintered capacity Spiraled ascendancy Collapsing in overflow Unbalance letting go. How can one run away from himself I'm trapped inside, no one's there to help. Sharp edges of sanity Cut deep inside of me Torn piece by piece apart This is where madness starts. Splintered capacity Spiraled ascendancy Collapsing in overflow Unbalanced and letting go. How can one run away from himself I'm trapped inside, no one's there to help. I'm hearing voices when no one is here Seeing things that illustrate all of my fears I'm slowly losing my mind. Sharp edges of sanity Cut deep inside of me Torn piece by piece apart This is where madness starts. Splintered capacity Spiraled ascendancy Collapsing in overflow Unbalance letting go. How can one run away from himself I'm trapped inside, no one's there to help.

Devil's Dust 04:52
Devil's Dust Lifting weightless now all of us Into the air as if we devil’s dust Carried gently away with the wind Altered and transformed a new now begins. Souls adrift in seas of eternity Aimless ash spiritual residue Souls adrift in seas of eternity A door to an empty room we’re passing through. On and on we sing an endless song Abandoned forsaken eternal gone Time is forever and forever goes Into the unknown only the unknown knows. Souls adrift in seas of eternity Aimless ash spiritual residue Souls adrift in seas of eternity A door to an empty room we’re passing through. We are one When the end has come And the world we know has now undone Drifting off infinitely Mere particles of what was you and me. Lifting weightless, now all of us Into the air as if we Devil’s dust.
