Vestal Claret from Seymour, Connecticut, plays music in a heavy occult style. The album The Cult Of Vestal Claret brings together a full album’s worth of the band’s classic Doom material, mainly re-recorded versions of songs from previous splits but also a couple of unreleased tracks and a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Who Are You” The sound of the band is classic 70s Doom, à la Sabbath, with a healthy dose of 80s Doom, such as Trouble, and a hefty Traditional Heavy Metal vibe. The guitars are fuzzy, but not overly so, and the tempos are not uniformly slow, giving The Cult Of Vestal Claret a great flow from faster to slower parts. Tuozzoli’s riffs are fantastically melodic and catchy, his bass lines deep and booming and Swanson’s unique, unadorned vocals have rarely sounded better. When you combine these elements together, it makes you hope Vestal Claret will be Phil’s band for the foreseeable future as, in Tuozzoli’s musical framework, he has found a home. This album is a must for all fans of Doom and dark Traditional Metal. There are no weak tracks and nothing that panders to any sort of modern trend. Some might lament such an underground band receiving wider exposure but I say “fuck that!” Get this album and throw some horns in the air.
