Metamorph finally washes up on Australian soil.



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."

Cease.

Please bear with us while we too await their arrival.

Upcoming EP to be released by Obscure Abhorrence Productions and Art of Propaganda



Cover art for the upcoming mCD/mLP.


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.
