Isolation

For those of you paying attention, Lascowiec is an extremely mysterious and amazingly talented Black Metal band based out of San Francisco. They released two brilliant cassettes through my former label The Funeral Agency. The few copies of Gesamkunstwerk and Gunshots Ring Out Over Vinland Streets were scooped up fast, and were both extremely well-received when they were featured here on The Hearse. This is Lascowiec's third demo, the as of yet unreleased Isolation, and it is perhaps their most compelling work yet. Fuck, I love this band.

Excellent. Any information on when this will be released?

Aesop said...

Not sure if it will. They have two unreleased demos, this being one of them. NH of the band gave me full permission to share this one. They do have a split coming soon with a Belarussian band whose name escapes me.

Damn this band is amazing, this is certainly the best that I have heard by them. They should be better known. Do they ever tour? (I live in Hell A.)

Thanks Aesop! Lascowiec (Angkor Vat as well) has been one of my favorite raw styled black metal bands ever since I first heard them two years ago.

I am very pleased to be downloading this right now as I've been wondering what has happened to them.

For those looking for their tapes, TDG might still be distributing them.

Aesop said...

The name is pronounced Los-co-veece.

They do not tour or play live

Thank you, these guys are amazing. Their tracks on the Marblebog and some other band split are mesmerizing.

chriskaroshi said...

So fucking hypnotizing! I'm really surprised they put pictures of themselves on something.

Thanks so much for this.

For Wotan's sake, somebody please release this in a proper format! Is there any way to contact this band?

Great band! However I'd not talk about them being 'genius', their genre has already some precedents in certain bands...
But I'd still mention the PASSION, it seems some sort of passion into the music, like any track could be the last one and they put the most force they can...

Can someone re-upload this ?
