BLOOD OF THE SPECTRE – STUNNING NEW RECORD & TOURING IN THE PIPELINE!
April 10, 2012 by writer
UK Extremists ‘Blood Of The Spectre’ unveil their anticipated debut self-titled EP, out on Monday 25th June.
Since their formation at the later part of 2009, Blood Of The Spectre have destroyed stages throughout England with their face-melting concoction of modern metal laced with entwining technical guitar passages and bone-crushing breakdowns.
Although they may tip their hats to a host of varied influences mapping from Viatrophy and Black Dahlia Murder to Sylosis and Tesseract, the progressive quintet endeavour to etch their individual signature on an increasingly stigmatized genre. Approaching their musical output with nothing less than serious intent, Blood of the Spectre thrive on ballsy originality.
Formed in Hampshire, Nick (Vocals), Larry (Drums), Rich (Guitar), and Tom (Bass) all met in school, where they shared an unbridled and mutual passion for metal. Dom (Guitar) joined the ranks last year and the hardworking fivesome have not looked back since. The innovative noisenuts began to find their feet playing a host of sweat-drenched hardcore shows around the Southampton and Basingstoke area. Soon after, they began marking their stamp on the nation’s highways, playing a cluster of fleapits as far afield as Northern England through to the depths of Wales, supporting the likes of Evita, Touché Amore, Monuments, Malefice, and even, You Me At Six and The Blackout, along the way.
The rowdy crew aspire for new heights with their brand new self-titled EP, which is an utter beast of a record. From the compelling weaving riffery of ‘Darkened Majesty’, through to the dynamic and eerie conclusion of ‘End Era’, it’s an impressive EP that has enough power and precision to level an apartment block. There’s now nothing stopping Blood Of The Spectre from earning a prominent place within the UK Metal hierarchy. Watch this space!
