German metal sensation The Spirit went to Woodshed Studios in the spring of 2019 with producer V. Santura to record their follow-up to Sounds From The Vortex (2017). Their new album, Cosmic Terror, features seven raging anthems, full of guitars and instrumental inspiration. To support the album, the band will hit the road on a co-headline tour with their label mates, KARG. Stay tuned for a list of supporting acts.
In the meantime, check out the first single from the new album below: “Serpent As Time Reveals”!
From The Spirit Press Release
After recently announcing that their sophomore album Cosmic Terror will be released on February 7th via AOP Records, Germany’s black/death sensation THE SPIRIT reveal their first single (debuted yesterday at DecibelMagazine.com): The fast-paced opening track, “Serpent as Time Reveals,” has come to infect your human minds:
“Serpent As Time Reveals” was the first song I wrote for our second album, Cosmic Terror, and by far the one that needed the most time. I would be lying if I said I hadn’t felt a certain pressure at the time, after raising the bar for our own standards with our debut. Once the song was finished, it felt like a real liberation for me and served as an essential motivation boost for the songwriting of the rest of the album. We picked the track as our first single, since it seemed like the best transition between the first release and the new one.” – M.T.
