|The Spirit Sounds From The Vortex Limited Gatefold Vinyl LP
Formed in Saarbrücken, Germany in 2015, melodic black/death metal newcomers The Spirit are already making waves on the underground Metal scene.
In the 1990s, the harshness of melodic death metal and the attitude of black metal were combined by a couple of Scandinavian bands, inventing a whole new breed of darkness and kick starting a new chapter in heavy music. The Spirit have taken this groundwork, adding their own impressive touches and unique identity, whilst always keeping their musical roots close to mind. Their songs are full of creative rhythms, clashing melodies and sharp sentiment; delivered fast-paced - vividly presenting the band's spirit.
The quartet's debut Sounds From The Vortex displays irrepressible power and passion. Every note is presented with a lot of heart and manic undertones. At this year's Party.San Open Air and Summer Breeze, The Spirit will spread their unholy atmosphere and prove their impeccable live skills.
This triumphant debut cuts to the core of what makes extreme metal so enjoyable. The riffs, the chilling harmonic melodies, the clear production, and a certain Pagan atmosphere come together to make a joyous listening experience. Their melodic black metal sounds straight out of Sweden (think Dissection and Sacramentum), as it wonderfully melds together atmospheric and riffy black metal with haunting and visceral melodeath.
The band elaborate:" Sinister music created with high passion is what you can expect. Sounds From The Vortex is just the beginning! We are looking forward to the future and we are glad that they will spread our sounds all over the globe from now on."
