With the melodic black/death metal, The Spirit having already made waves in the European underground scene and with the self-released debut album "Sounds From The Vortex," being strictly limited and nearly sold out on the band's homepage, the band is now reissuing the icy black/death metal chimera through Nuclear Blast on August 10th. Pre-order the album at this location, where it is available as a CD, LP (black and clear) and digital download.
The seven virtuosic tracks of the quartet hailing from Saarbrücken, Germany, freshly revive the past of the genre and immediately induce nostalgia with their clashing melodies and authenticly rough sound. Today, the band is presenting a lyric video to their first single "The Clouds Of Damnation," a 7-minute burst of unfiltered emotions. Watch the clip in the player above.
The track listing and artwork for the album can be found here:
1. Sounds from the Vortex
2. Cosmic Fear
3. The Clouds of Damnation
4. Cross the Bridge to Eternity
5. Illuminate the Night Sky
6. The Great Mortality
7. Fields of the Unknown
At this year's Party.San Open Air, the band will play a release show for "Sounds From The Vortex," and you can also witness the band's sinister live atmosphere and live skills at Summer Breeze and Metal Invaders.
