SPIRALE “Labirintas”

I’ve had this one for a while now but since it was store in my phone I forgot about it. But now that it has made its way onto my computer I’ll give it a listen. At least the band that sent me this album will be happy to know that I haven’t forgotten about them. I don’t get sent too many albums from Lithuanian bands. If there is anything we’ve learned about modern technology is that nowadays it doesn’t matter where you live. You can sound the same if you are from Outer Mongolia as you can if you come from NYC. SPIRALE could be described as an avant-garde metal. This isn’t your straight from A to B kind of band. I have no idea if there is a Baltic mentality that tells people to do things the hard way but I’ve come upon a couple of Baltic bands that are anything but easy listening. SPIRALE requires your full attention. They don’t deal in conventional song structures. This is more like the deconstruction of metal. Only to be assembled into something new. This album wasn’t as tough to get as I feared. An interesting musical journey that hasn’t ended yet. Anders Ekdahl
