Spectral Darkwave - Live Booking
Of unspecified origin Spectral Darkwave are a band who are carving out their own mythos, their own folklore. They are travellers through time and space, explorers of the past and future. The tales of their adventures are set to a colossal soundtrack of intimidating, imperious music, a fusion of doom and death, swathed in symphonic grandeur and adorned with the dark glamour of black metal and cold, industrial steel. When their firepower is unleashed in the live setting the results are staggering, their overwhelming force enhanced by their secret weapon, The Slavedriver, a mechanical creation of superlative power. Each and every Spectral Darkwave performance is unforgettable, a moment when the streams of time collide and explode!
In 2015 they released their debut album, Last First Contact, which garnered praise from across the metal media, including from major print magazines like ZERO TOLERANCE which awarded it a stunning yet richly deserved 5/6 review...
“The mechanistic collides with the melancholy; alien technology with ancient magic and the results are refreshing and captivating... Fine dark metal that suggests a wealth of possibilities still yet to be explored.”
Gigs followed across the UK with the likes of...
RAISED BY OWLS, KRYSTHLA, ISARNOS, DEEP THROAT TRAUMA, CONCRETE AGE, GEVAUDAN, LOWEN and many more.
The band also appeared at events such as...
BLOODSTOCK 2021 – with JUDAS PRIEST, KREATOR, DEVIN TOWNSEND etc
CHUCKFEST 2019 – with ANOXIDE, ASCARIS etc
RED ROAR 2016 – with WHISPERED, COUNTLESS SKIES etc
Now in 2021 Spectral Darkwave have announced the release of their second full length album, At Outer Dark and great things await! The album will be launched with a return to an old favourite venue for the band, Club 85 in Hitchin, where a supporting cast including GEVAUDAN and ELDERSEER will help to celebrate At Outer Dark’s release. This intimate show will be just the beginning - expect to see the galactic corsairs on a stage near you soon as they continue their quest for domination of every era of existence.
“...their assault is airlock tight.”
