Artist: Ghost
Title: Spectral Mechanics
Format: 3" MiniCD
Label: Inner Demons Records
Rated: *****
Like many of these artists, I was unfamiliar with Ghost (not to be confused with the many other bands named Ghost). I could not find much about this artist, so we may as well get right into the music. This opens with synth buried under crackling static and rumbling noise. The synth keeps shifting and is quite pretty. Kind of reminds me of some of the more droney aspects of Lycia, with unsettling heaviness mixed with absolute beauty. The wall of noise keeps rumbling on, remaining largely static, over the top of this composition. I really like the juxtaposition. This is well worth checking out. This disc weighs in at 19:38, and is limited to 42 copies, so get it while you still have a chance.
