0030 - Light Bearer - Lapsus (Double LP)

This double LP has to be my favourite, which is a touch thing to say as I've got so many records now, but everything about this record is incredible. I learned about Light Bearer through Halo of Flies Records, but actually picked this copy up from the UK label Protagoras Collective.

Light Bearer are an amazing atmospheric metal band from London and they released this double LP through Alerta Antifascista, Halo of Flies and Moments of Collapse.

Both the front and back covers are very dark, featuring subtle artwork and song titles on the back.

It's the same when you open out the sleeve to reveal what's on the inside! Two winged beasts glaring at each other while another stares straight at you.
Inside the main sleeve, are two inner sleeves witch house the records. Each one features similar artwork to that of the cover on the front and the songs, lyrics, credits on the back.
