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: 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”, frontman M.T. explains. “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.”Listen to ‘Serpent as Time Reveals’ here:
“Cosmic Terror” is now ready for pre-order and the 7 new tracks will be available in the following formats:
