ASTRAL SPECTRE "Phantom Nightmare / The Oath Is Broken" [2-CD, Digipak]
2022 - Black/Heavy Metal from Germany
Collector's Edition in 6-panel Digipack, limited to 500 copies. The first edition of the Astral Spectre debut CD includes a bonus CD with the project's 2021 demo "The Oath is Broken" incl. the fantastic new song "Running for the dawn" as bonus track. Astral Spectre was founded in 2020 by Tenebros as a solo project. It is a blend of harsh 1st wave Black Metal vocals and guitar riffs that evoke the unique feeling of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Inspired by classic rock of the 70s, a hammond organ is also included into the soundscape. The first three songs were written and recorded during 2020, while the mixing and mastering was done in 2021, leading to the release of the demo „The Oath is Broken" on two limited runs of self produced cassette tapes. About one year later, in the first half of 2022, the debut album „Phantom Nightmare" was finished. Including a guest performance and co-songwriter credits of Befana with clarinet and flute.
