The second Spire release - Metamorph - is finally available within Australia. This Digipack CD EP release is a distinct follow up from the first EP though the Metamorphosis of the band is explicit.
Described by Lurkers Path as: "...a sense of all-consuming bleakness by furrowing the brow
of the orthodox framework. The rhythm section utilizes an array of time
signatures and dissonant bass melodies. This rethinking of basic
building blocks is met by walls of swarming guitars, reverb-heavy
production and an outline of bleak drone, fuzz and chaotic noise."
A quick word to those wondering where the much promised new Metamorph EP is... it's in the ether. Our copies were sent from Germany some time ago and have still not arrived. We received some few copies to fulfill our pre-orders but the majority are still 'in-transit'.
Please bear with us while we too await their arrival.
It has been pressed and is being sent to Australia. Regards go to Obscurer Abhorrence and Art of Propaganda for their role in this new work.
Those attending Illoomination on the 11th will be able to purchase it first. Otherwise it will be available via internet order shortly after. This release is also accompanied by a new t-shirt, available in black or white, of the above logo.
Also available at this time will be the Cassette edition of the self-titled Spire EP. Great respect to Fall of Nature for the hard work on our behalf.
Any 'zines etc. seeking to review either EP or interview the band contact: spires of thought at gmail dot com.
Spire are proud to announce that their debut EP is now available. You can purchase it direct from the band (spiresofthought at gmail dot com) for $15 (+ $3 postage) in Australia. Please contact us for international orders.
The first 100 copies come in a very limited, special 6 panel digi-pak with alternate art. The rest are pressed on standard jewel case with booklet.
Spire are proud to announce their first release, the self titled EP.
The music and concepts of Spire are enigmatic and therefore difficult to describe. The music is a mix of atmospheric black metal mixed with the collective inspiration of all music genres. The EP sets in a cosmic feeling, from droning atmospheres and chanting to the sounds of imploding stars and minds alike.
The Spire EP mCD will be released by Obscure Abhorrence Productions and Art of Propaganda from Germany. It wil be limited to 1000 copies with the first 100 in special digipack format with alternate artwork. The mCD should be available early 2010, we will post more news of this as we have it.
Additionally the mLP release should follow on soon after.
