Spektr: The Art To Disappear
Avant-black French duo err on the side of incoherence
Spektr won’t appeal to everyone and with their latest opus they may not even appeal to those who enjoyed their previous output.
Through The Darkness Of Future Past is a melting pot of industrial, black metal and dissonant frequencies, and while these ingredients often combine to create a terrifying barrage of sound and lock into a tight groove, it often strays into incoherence. This strategy seems to follow the French duo throughout their fourth full-length, and takes away from the dizzying discord of 2013’s Cypher.
