Whenever an Irish act crosses my way and I get overwhelmed from the very first spin, it becomes a lifetime relationship; alongside Primordial and Mourning Beloveth the triangle is complete with Wreck Of The Hesperus.

The tentacles of torment have been awakened from their slumber in the deepest sewers and are slowly marching underneath the city towards its borders, to surround it in one take all of a sudden. Wreck Of The Hesperus, five years after their devastating debut work (The Sunken Threshold), present their second attempt, Light Rotting Out. The title says it all and the obscure skeletal/humane duality complex in the cover artwork hides even more. Are you ready for swimming lessons in the murky waters of sludge-flirting funeral doom?

Great nasty cover art to go with equally filthy music. Doesn't feel like funeral doom though, more like some kind of extreme sludge.

get hold of the A5 version it has a post card included for every single track with some more greatr nasty art by one of the band members. He also did the artwork for the Wreck split with Mourning Beloveth.

I just noticed that but assumed it would have been sold out. I'll definitely have a look for it though.

no idea how limited it is. But it wouldn't surpirse me if Aesthetic Death still has copies. I know for sure Psychedoomelic still does, though.
