Ustalost is the solo project of Yellow Eyes co-founder Will Skarstad, conceived a half-decade ago with The Spoor of Vipers as a pressure valve for ideas too decadent for any other outlet. He returns with a second release, Before The Glinting Spell Unvests, a vision of grandiosity and endless beguiling depth, dragged dripping out of the bog with handfuls of fruit so overripe as to be nearly alcoholic. Ustalost has always been an experiment in indulgence, and Glinting Spell asks for even more, careening through landscapes of hysteria and melancholy with impulsiveness and the godlike acetic whiff of incoherence.
Recorded straight to tape in the woods of Connecticut, with lyrics, production, and album design by Sam Skarstad, Before The Glinting Spell Unvests is another entry in an increasingly exceptional legacy.
LP packaged in gatefold LP jacket on heavy stock with a matte finish and foil stamp Ustalost logo on cover.
