Spectral Wound play black metal, unadulterated and unadorned. Against the grain of both atmospheric and militaristic strands of the genre, Spectral Wound carves a space beyond the fetish of nature or the puerile romance of power. Without God, without Satan, without Odin, without nation, without transcendence, without essence. Spectral Wound channels the horrors of the flesh and the violence of the spirit, deformed under the weight of history, poised on the brink of a whirling void.
Labelled “Scotland’s King of the arcane mosh” by Metal Hammer magazine, Hellripper aims to invoke the quintessential “black ‘n’ roll” sound, mixing influences from classic 80’s black metal records with a more modern edge. Heavily inspired by witchcraft and the supernatural, Hellripper is also deeply rooted in its Scottish origins, using the landscape and historical events as a backdrop for its lyrics and imagery. Hellripper is fast, loud and uncompromising. All hail the goat!
