Spectral Dance are a solo project from Canada that plays a very mid tempo form of black metal and this is a review of his 2020 demo "Like An Avenging Spectre" which will be released on December 11th by Snow Wolf Records.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the demo while synths can also be heard at times along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams as well as the guitar leads also being done in a very melodic style.
The riffs also add in a great amount of melody while both of his tracks are also very long and epic in length . All of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction with no fast parts or blast beats ever being utilized as well as a small amount of tremolo picking also being added into some of the guitar riffing, clean singing can aslo be heard briefly.
Spectral Dance plays a style of black metal that sticks to mostly a mid tempo direction as well as keeping everything heavy. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness themes.
In my opinion Spectral Dance are a very great sounding mid tempo black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Haunting Deep Blue Nights". 8 out of 10.
