‘Under Ebon Lash’ is the first single out from the debut album of British band SPECTRAL DARKWAVE. The record, entitled “Last First Contact”, will come out in late March and the band shared a few comments on this first full length:
“Last First Contact will unleash a journey into the many hells of mankind, with each song forming an exhibit in the grotesque gallery of human endeavour. The album weaves a tapestry of horror wrought on the cries of bereft mothers, nuclear strikes and epic orchestral flourishes.”

Formed as a trans-continental pact by twin brothers Dan and Steve Kennedy in 2012 to fuse the limitless possibilities outlined in early computer music, European and doom metal, the band’s grinding rhythms and twisted melodies deliver a crushing reminder of the depravities carried out in the name of human progress. With the departure of long-term collaborator and bassist Ben Bueno, Jon Stokes took up the mantle and SPECTRAL DARKWAVE was complete.
“Last First Contact” was recorded over the course of two years using the best home equipment the band could get, and vocals were recorded in La La Land Studio in London under the watchful eye of engineer Fred Lagergren.
