The long-awaited vinyl reissue of this cult '80s black/death/thrash metal demo is out for all the freaks to adore, Lovecraft-influenced Satanic metal from Lima, Peru. This jewel of the Peruvian underground sees the light of Luciferian darkness, now with bonus tracks and including a 20page booklet with tons of pictures of the band from 1984 to 1989, an extended biography, flyers, lyrics, interviews, an introduction to the cult, commentary from members of fellow Peruvian legends MORTEM and HADEZ, etc.
This vinyl edition contains the 1987 demo Secta Hereje in its entirety plus 4 live tracks from the band's presentation at "Holocausto Metal" in July of 1988, and 2 tracks from the Ten Tons of Noise rehearsal tape from 1984-85.
HASTUR'S lyrical approach was undoubtedly Satanic, tinted with Lovecraftian tales of horror and desperation. The music itself is a very rare (by South American standards) combination of deathrash with doom metal very much influenced by bands like HELLHAMMER / CELTIC FROST, SLAYER, MORTUARY DRAPE, MERCYFUL FATE, EXORCIST and other bands that transcended the borders of genres into a sonic wall of dark and blasphemous sound that was as evil as it was strange, especially from a part of the world where metalheads were only used to the Brazilian sounds of bands like SARCOFAGO or SEPULTURA. HASTUR wanted to break those molds of conformity and traveled into a weird and unique world of their own where Satan was the absolute king and master, and where nothing that arrived there was ever seen again by mortals. HASTUR'S music remains a staple of the Peruvian underground, unique, Satanic and glorious, and these servants of evil are once again summoned to bear witness to this glorious release and announce that to stand against evil means you stand alone.
