The Cult of Vestal Claret will be released through Cruz del Sur Music on May 6 in North America. The album will be available on CD and vinyl formats, each with different track listings.

The Cult of Vestal Claret introduces to the masses a name that thus far has been quite popular only amongst the die-hard fans of the doom metal scene. In fact, Swanson is well renowned for his work with HOUR OF 13 and SEAMOUNT. VESTAL CLARET's pronounced BLACK SABBATH-inspiration together with Swanson's signature doomy style perfectly blends with the band's Traditional Heavy Metal influences, not to mention an accomplished drumming style, cutting guitars and catchy compositions. The morbid-themed lyrics walk hand in hand with the mesmerizing music: VESTAL CLARET celebrates the dark side of the human psyche, with abundant references to Occultism, Satanism and other disturbing imagery.

The compact disc edition includes newly recorded versions of four previously-released tracks from the split with UNGOD, and the long suite "Black Priest" (a different, re-recorded version from the one present on the split with Indian band ALBATROSS). The CD also contains two unreleased songs, a cover version of BLACK SABBATH's "Who Are You?" and an exclusive CD-only track, "Great Goat God." The vinyl LP includes two songs from the UNGOD split, the two unreleased tracks, and an exclusive vinyl-only track titled "So Mote it Be."

"The jangling melancholy of Trouble, the epic stomp of Candlemass, the creative freedom of Sabbath, add a big handful of classic 1980s metal and off they go, exploring places where no light shines."  - [9/10] Doom Metal Heaven

 "Vestal Claret is hell as you imagined it when you were young. It's all arrow-tailed demons, fire pits, a melting sky of blackness and heavy metal parties that go on for eternity. It's a dark, loud and tough kind of lifestyle, but this band shows us how to deal with afterlife in the underground."  - Alternative Control

VESTAL CLARET might sound like a new name amongst American occult heavy metal music, but their origins can be traced back to 2005. When vocalist Phil Swanson met recording studio owner and multi-instrumentalist Simon Tuozzoli, he introduced Tuozzoli to his own "Occult Heavy Metal / Death Rock" project. Tuozzoli was quickly hooked, and VESTAL CLARET got started. After the release of the Two Stones demo, (that appeared on a split EP with Teutonic epic metal messiahs and label-mates ATLANTEAN KODEX), VESTAL CLARET composed and demoed out a full length recording. The recording was put aside and the group disbanded.  They reformed in 2009 and soon followed with their 7" vinyl release Virgin Blood. VESTAL CLARET then released their first full length recording Bloodbath in 2011 on vinyl with guest performances from musicians all over the globe. The band's version of Bloodbath, without guest performances, was later released in 2013 on compact disc.
