about

VESTIGIAL contains several repeated characters throughout the album; the JUDAS STEER , the LOCUST CHRIST and GODS OF RUIN. These are anti heroes , the wolves among sheep figuratively. The ghastly Donald Trumps, The Kim Jun Oungs, The extremists and ignorant tyrants of our modern lives. The absurdity of Gun culture and the addiction to technology are also a major curse of the western world we live in.

------

A vile, evil, intensive yet very satisfying heavy release, one that moulds elements of the heavy music giants such as Converge, Lamb Of God, and Meshuggah to create a familiar but damned solid record overall. ‘Vestigial’ is Lo!’s strongest offering to date, from front to back. Do not sleep on this shit any longer! - Killyourstereo.com

Track Name: Bombardier
they came just after dark - shortly after the sirens wailed you could hear the planes grinding overhead - in my room, with its black curtains drawn across the windows - you could feel the shake from the guns - the motors seemed to grind rather than roar - and to have an angry pulsation - like a bee buzzing in blind fury - as we stepped out onto the balcony a vast inner excitement came over all of us - an excitement that had neither fear nor horror in it - because it was too full of awe - the whole horizon of a city lined with great fires - scores of them - perhaps hundreds - there was something inspiring just in the awful savagery of it - into the dark shadowed spaces below us - while we watched - whole batches of incendiary bombs fell - then quickly simmered down to pin points of dazzling white - burning ferociously - all around below were the shadows - the dark shadows of buildings and bridges that formed the base of this dreadful masterpiece - these things all went together to make the most hateful - most beautiful single scene i have ever known - (correspondence of the london blitz by ernie pyle)
