Vesicant - Shadows of Cleansing Iron Review and Track Stream.

Vesicant - Shadows of Cleansing Iron.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

New Zealand is one of those countries that continually makes a high standard contribution of music to the underground, this contribution can’t be questioned when we consider some of the bands originating from NZ, with Vassafor, Diocletian, Prisoner of War, Sabbatic Goat and Heresiarch being just a few examples. Just last week Heresiarch released their stunning debut album, ‘Death Ordinance,’ which was reviewed here and given a well-deserved 10/10. This week it’s the turn of another New Zealand underground band, Vesicant, to release their debut album.
