PRE-ORDER ITEM — EXPECTED TO ARRIVE BY NOVEMBER 29, 2019. Any regular in-stock items ordered at the same time (in the same shopping cart) will be held aside and sent with your pre-ordered goods as one shipment. Orders with multiple pre-orders will be sent as one order, when all of the items in the order are available. If you want the order to ship immediately, or want your pre-ordered items to be sent out as soon as they arrive here, rather than in a group, you must order them separately. PAYMENT WILL BE TAKEN WHEN YOU COMPLETE CHECKOUT.
Lustmord is a Welsh electronic musician, composer, and sound designer based in Los Angeles. Active since 1980 he has released a prolific body of work across various labels such as Touch, Hydra Head, and Blackest Ever Black (and Soleilmoon). Often credited for starting the dark ambient genre with his Heresy album in 1990 (on Soleilmoon), Lustmord’s music has been described as sweeping and profound, a vast dreamlike soundscape that utilizes organic and real-world scenes as source material. Lustmord albums have been made from caves, crypts, car crashes, cosmological activity, the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the site of the first ever nuclear detonation.
Lustmord has announced the launch of Vaultworks. Originally an imprint intended to release short editions of live CDs at his live shows, it is now launched as a wider platform for his work in general. Kickstarting a planned series of new releases and reissues is the first time vinyl and CD release of his soundtrack to Paul Schrader’s 2017 film First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, and Cedric Kyles. The release features extended versions of the score formatted as a standalone album. The CD version has tracks formatted to crossfade into each other for a continuous listening experience. The double LP version includes an extra track “Venice” which was featured at the Venice Film Festival red carpet event.
