Bestial Warlust Releasing Live Album From '96

Hells Headbangers is proud to release a special live album from the legendary Bestial Warlust, "Storming Bestial Legions Live '96," on both CD and vinyl LP formats.

Just like the title states, "Storming Bestial Legions" captures these Australian extreme metal pioneers at the height of their powers, not long after classic second album "Blood & Valour" was released.

As such, the setlist storms through that album as well as Bestial Warlust's pivotal debut album, "Vengeance War 'till Death," which went on to become one of the most mimicked black metal records in the new millennium, where the bestial metal subgenre soon flourished.

In conjunction with this live album, Hells Headbangers will also be reissuing Bestial Warlust's two lone albums from the '90s on deluxe digipack and, for the first time, cassette. More...

Bestial Warlust Demo To Be Reissued

Hell's Headbangers has announced the vinyl release date for Bestial Warlust's "Satan's Fist - Demo '96" (also to be released on limited-edition CD) as October 31st. The following press release was also issued:

"Unearthed from the vault, one of the rarest entries in the Bestial Warlust canon: Satan's Fist - Demo '96, the legendary band's final longer-form recording. With K.K. Warslut having gone on to Destroyer666 and Damon Bloodstorm to Abmoniator, the pared-down Bestial Warlust were at a crucial juncture in 1996, with Skullfucker on vocals/guitars and Hellcunt on drums. Between the two of them, however, the three songs they'd record for Satan's Fist - essentially, their 1996 demo - sound just as potent as anything on their two classic, influential full-lengths.

"Here, the bestial black metal they helped pioneer is tempered with a sort of gritty epicness, displaying both where Bestial Warlust were coming from and, more so, where they could have gone. But with a track on a four-way split to follow a year later, the lid would then be sealed on Bestial Warlust's coffin...until now! To be released on a limited-edition CD and 12" vinyl mastered at 45 RPM and with laser-etched B-side: feel Satan's Fist!"

Samples from the release can be streamed below, and the track listing is:

1. Left for Vultures
2. Hell's Militia
3. Satan's Fist More...
