bastard sapling - instinct is forever (2x12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // bastard sapling
LABEL // gilead media (us)
CAT // relic056lp


Bastard Sapling is a Richmond, VA-based black metal quintet featuring members of Inter Arma (Relapse). Instinct is Forever is the much awaited follow-up to Dragged from Our Restless Trance (Forcefield Records - 2012).

Simultaneously starker and more serene than their previous efforts, Instinct Is Forever is a step forward in terms of Bastard Sapling's traditional Scandinavian influences being warped by their own geography and a new experimental approach.

2xLP packaged in deluxe gatefold jacket - 400 on red and clear, 400 on black. CD packaged in a 4-panel digipak with lyric booklet. The album features guest appearances from members of Windhand, Evoken, and other members of Inter Arma.
