Sometimes in comparison to their fellow countrymen Blut Aus Nord, mysterious France black steel group Spektr revolves around the duo of drummer/programmer/vocalist kl.K and guitarist/bassist/programmer/vocalist Hth. Spektr consider an experimental method of black metal, displaying fondness for roomy drones, found noises, and odd period signatures (in addition to commercial and dark ambient affects) just as much as crushing guitars and punishing drums. The music group attained some notoriety in 2004 when, upon the discharge of its debut record, No Longer Individual Senses, San Francisco’s Aquarius Information considered it “the weirdest dark steel record ever.” 2 yrs later, Spektr came back with Near Loss of life Knowledge, an atmospheric group of music that emphasized their musique concrète affects; the duo pressed the boundaries of dark metal even more with 2008’s Mescalyne EP. On 2013’s Cypher, Spektr included more digital and jazz-inspired components into their audio. The duo proceeded to go into concealing for another year or two, rising on Agonia making use of their most melodic however commercial and jazz-influenced record up to now with 2016’s The Artwork to Disappear.
