French industrial-leaning, ambient-prone black metal band Spektr has a new album coming down the pipe.
It’s called Cypher, and drops February 5 in Europe and February 19 in North America on Agonia Records.
The follow-up to 2006′s Near Death Experience will be made available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download.
A press release claims Cypher is “an experimental black metal album, recorded entirely without vocals except sampling. The album introduces industrial and ambient elements and as a whole should be considered as a strongly psychedelic release; it produces a feeling, as if the mind of the listener, dragged into the music, were unable of concentrate itself or were experiencing a powerful hallucinogen effect.”
Says the band: “Six Years of burning visions for the Spektr to return wrenched from the hermetic silence of Initiated Temples. The Ectoplasm Cypher thus stands as the Stone-Principle emerging out of Philosophal fumes — the transcended transcription of the most sealed occultism on audio format. SPEKTR commits, Agonia endorses — I’LL BE RIGHT THERE IN THE AFTERLIFE — and we ain’t going nowhere.”
