Carpathian - Wanderlust 7"

Carpathian were a hardcore band from straight across the ditch. I first heard of them through a Deathwish sampler and I picked their first album on CD a couple of years ago. Don't get me wrong, it is not a bad album but it not super spectacular. Fast forward a wee while and I again hear a new Carpathian song on a Deathwish sampler. I considered buying a copy, and when I heard that this release also featured a cover of Joy Division's  "Shadowplay" it sealed the deal. 
Much like the album, "Wanderlust" is not amazing. I didn't put it on and be instantly blown away, but it isn't half bad.

I feel the artwork is a bit boring here. It seems to be a picture of windows and doors or something.
I do however like the vinyl itself. The version I have is the first pressing on clear. I do always like clear vinyl, I reckon it looks pretty snazzy.
Also included was an insert with some gritty black and white photo of the band on the front, with the lyrics on the reverse side.
