Rumbling death metal with a touch of goth and some of the most wicked vocals ever! Angela Gossow eat your heart out, Vanessa Nocera has usurped your throne with style! Even her clean vocals have a ring of Stevie Nicks to them (to my ears anyway). But of course the vocals wouldn't impress much without the music to back 'em up and again it is top notch! Immerse yourself in this right away!
The Shrieks From Below
Took me longer to get into this one than their previous album. Not as straightforward as the first one, and the guitars don't have the same chainsaw sound, but the riffs have more depth.
SKELETAL SPECTRE has unleashed their army of fleshless ones, and delivers their 2nd crushing album, “Occult Spawned Premonitions”! 8 tracks of female fronted, ghastly Swedish Doom/Death Metal influenced by spirits of the undead, graveyard sacrifices at midnight, and other unearthly supernatural horror themes…while haunting the listener with destructive, earth-shattering riffs and demonic/ghostly death-banshee-from-hell vocals that will leave Doom and Death Metal fans cursed for all eternity!
European version of “Occult Spawned Premonitions” includes additional bonus track not to be found on US version.
Get ready for the rebirth of SKELETAL SPECTRE...the hour of your DOOM has arrived!
