The upcoming album from Greek heavy metal group Spektrvm is entitled Blood For Heaven and consists of 9 tracks and 2 wide spectrums.
The first and most obvious, is the musical one. This album is a heavy metal based one, but includes a lot of different musical influence points. Progressive, folk, nu, thrash, doom are just some of those musical styles and genres.
The other point of focus is the lyrical one. Blood For Heaven is made up of songs that speak to different social and political failings in our society, with roots that trace back to acts of greed, pride and vanity and feelings of anger, sadness and depression. So you have to watch out for the details in both the musical composition, but also the meaning behind the lyrics.

The album ends on the excellent “Rotten World” which builds up nicely from the atmospheric clean guitar into a heavier vein and another great chorus. Considering this is a debut album, it’s a definite triumph. It channels the spirit of SOEN in the vocals and melodies but this is by no means a carbon copy. It does enough to stand out from the crowd and Thanos has a great voice that suits the musicianship and carries the songs on some memorable choruses and a great clear production. I look forward to see what this band does next and they are definitely one to watch …read more
