BloodLust! is extremely pleased to release the deluxe vinyl edition of “Drenched Lands,” the new Locrian album, which is the band’s first studio-recorded full-length. “Drenched Lands” finds Locrian effortlessly synthesizing music styles, all the while shrugging off easy genre descriptions, as they create an album that combines drone, black metal, and noise elements to portray qualities of beauty, sadness, radiance, and horror. Following the already acclaimed compact disc version that was recently co-released by At War With False Noise (Scotland) and Small Doses (USA), BloodLust! and Locrian worked closely together to conceive this handsome new record. Pressed in an edition of only 200 copies in clear vinyl, this record is housed in a handsome letter-pressed two-fold sleeve, printed at Chicago’s Dexterity Press. The inner flap of the sleeve holds a bonus 3-inch compact disc that contains music that will remain exclusive to this edition. LP recording and mixing were completed by Steve Beyerink at Phantom Manor, Chicago, while mastering and cutting duties were executed by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service. The 3-inch CD was recorded by Philip von Zweck in January 2009, at WLUW 88.7 FM, on the Something Else broadcast, and it was mastered by Jason Soliday at Enemy, Chicago. For this live radio session, Locrian were joined by Andrew Sherer (Velnias) and Mark Solotroff (BLOODYMINDED, Anatomy of Habit).
