I’ve been a huge fan of this new wave of death doom that’s been coming about but I must say this demo by Spectral Voice caught my ear like crazy! Reminds me of the doomy gloomy death metal you would hear from bands like rippikoulu. Can’t get over the lead tone as well... overall a greatly structured release
Favorite track: Rotting Auras.
Spectral Voice is a band that requires no introduction within the underground scene, and this is in line with what you'd expect from them. This compilation of older works shows a clear line of progression from each of these separate - but now compiled - works to their legendary LP. It's Spectral Voice. Get it.
Favorite track: Peeled Veins.
Since the crypt of SV was first opened circa the miserable Winter MMXII, a lone full length, five rehearsal promos, multiple 7” split EPs, and one infamous demo have been released. SV’s Death/Doom has been slowly rotting across the USA & Europe for years, putrefying the road alongside allies such as SEMPITERNAL DUSK, UNDERGANG, BLOOD INCANTATION, ANATOMIA, PRIMITIVE MAN, SUPERSTITION, MORTIFERUM, DEMILICH, HYPERDONTIA, GRAVE MIASMA, FLOWERING BLADE & KRYPTS.
For the first time, all official non-album material is finally available in one place, in dedication towards all cultists and gloomy fanatics who have supported THE SPECTRAL VOICE since the early years of these recordings. The self-released LP “Necrotic Demos” contains the original “Necrotic Doom” demo and all tracks from the out-of-print split EPs. Dark Descent Records present the Compact Disc edition as a digipak with bonus track
supported by 62 fans who also own “Necrotic Demos”
Necrot gives me the feeling I had when I first heard Metallica and Slayer in the 80s. These guys are special. Thanks to Tanner Ellison and the Seek & Destroy metal show on KEXP for introducing me. Ryan Johnson
