I picked up this record along with Ritual's "Kangaroo Court" for a mere 50 p each in a bargain section about twenty-seven (!) years ago. Both records are of their time (early '80s) but hold up very well today in terms of creativity. The lyrics and atmospheres slot perfectly into the early "goth" mould – "regiments of tainted angels" etc. – which is probably not surprising, seeing as the members of In Excelsis had already cut their teeth in UK Decay and Ritual, if memory serves me correctly. Thank you for posting this here.
Ex members of Ritual whose other members went on to form Death Cult/ The Cult
i think this is more post punk… At least the vocals are…
You had me at the cover illustration
なんかuk decayに雰囲気似てると思ったら元uk decayだったのか。
That album cover sure is frightening.
