SPEKTR “Cypher”

SPEKTR
“Cypher”
(Agonia)
This is a band that I thought about checking out but haven’t gotten round to for various reasons. I have read only good things about this band which makes me a bit cautious. Usually when I read good things about a band I end up not liking them once I hear the music. And with this being an album entirely without vocals I don’t know how likely it is that I’ll like it. Honestly I have no idea how to describe this. It is black metal even though there are no lyrics. I guess that when it all matters vocals are secondary. No, not really. I miss the vocals. I miss the dimension that they add to black metal. And while there is nothing to complain about musically it still feels like there is something missing. I have no problem with instrumental metal per se but I’m not too sure black metal is the best forum for no vocals. Anders Ekdahl
