about

Τext from Throne Records:

We have a special treat for listeners of “II“, since Ayloss has recorded bass guitar for this album, which was absent from the original recording, and done some extra post-production work.

The addition of bass lines in “II” changes the whole album’s atmosphere and depth. It’s not just listening to an enhanced recording, but a complete different experience on itself.
As if that was not good enough, both the 2xLP and the 2xCD versions of “II” will feature an unreleased track from these sessions, which was found along the process: “Penumbra“.

II is Spectral Lore’s first “real” album in terms of length and ambition, while Sentinel is Ayloss’ first strong effort in terms of production and efficiency.

II represents the first, if a little bit premature version of the Spectral Lore sound that was achieved by introducing more Metal elements into the experimental Ambient Black Metal sound of the debut.
In II the two elements of Metal and ambience are in a perfect balance, not making completely clear at any point if you’re listening to a Metal or an Ambient music album.

Also, II features the first really progressive and ambitious Spectral Lore composition, “The Thorns that Guide my Warpath“, which is one of Ayloss’ favourite up to this day.

For this vinyl issue of II we will be able to present the original Vierling‘s paintings at full size’s magnificence.
