STANDARD JEWEL CASE CD
After no less than five demos/rehearsals and two splits, Coloradoâ€™s SPECTRAL VOICE are finally crossing the Styx and delivering their first proper full-lengthâ€¦and it is gigantic. While things appear quite straight-forward on paper (the band has never hidden their love of roughly mixing early and down tuned Finnish death metal with extreme doom in an acid bath) thereâ€™s something quite unique about them. Instead of weakening their impact, their rawness and vast sound only emphasizes their genuine thirst for darkness.
Like a lurker oozing with evil intentions, SPECTRAL VOICE like to remain in the shadow. There, theyâ€™ve patiently learned from their elders, only to regurgitate their own brand of extreme death/doom. For instance, â€˜Visions of Psychic Dismembermentâ€™ is an eleven-minute long trip into the darkest regions of our collective mind, where UNHOLYâ€™s trippiest moments join INCANTATION for a dance around the fire. The opening blast beat sequence in â€˜Lurking Gloomâ€™ on the top of bleak arpeggios will fire up most dISEMBOWELMENT freaks. Far more than just a sum of its parts, â€˜Eroded Coridors of Unbeingâ€™ is a unique and claustrophobic voyage, cavernous yet full of clarity. Here, SPECTRAL VOICE is the sound of oneâ€™s soul going further down the abyssâ€¦and theyâ€™re taking you with them.
