On their upcoming album “Of Clarity and Galactic Structures“, black/death virtuosi THE SPIRIT once again delve into the vast nothingness of the universe. With this new studio release, out on April 1st through AOP Records, the duo takes a progressive turn on their third opus and now reveals the first single in form of the crushing, 7-minute-long album opener that grabs your right by the neck and drags you into the cosmic void.
Singer and guitarist Matthias Trautes comments: “The first version of this song was almost done when I realized it’s a good one, but definitely not a great one. So I deleted everything and started again from scratch although the date of the drum recordings was very near. Without a doubt, this was a very good decision as I think this one is certainly one of the strongest songs we ever wrote.”
Two years after their sophomore “Cosmic Terror”, Germany’s THE SPIRIT once again delve into the vast nothingness of the universe, while capturing the fear of the unknown and humanity’s insignificance within our cosmos in their sound. On their upcoming third offering, “Of Clarity and Galactic Structures“, out on April 1st via AOP Records, the duo, consisting of Matthias Trautes (vocals, guitars, bass) and Manuel Steitz (drums), hold on to their black/death metal roots yet take the progressive elements to a whole new level. Whilst the predecessor from 2019 already contained some prog elements, the brain twisting rhythm changes and virtuosic instrumental performance became an essential part of the band’s universe.
