Pulverised Records will be releasing Skeletal Spectre's new album "Voodoo Dawn," and now the label has released an advance track from the coming album. Check out the song "Black Augury Hollow" below. Pulverised Records also comments:
"Bludgeoning and inexorable through and through, grime-sovereigns Skeletal Spectre once again incites the underworld with their deadly third conjuration 'Voodoo Dawn!'
"Spearheaded by the unholy Death / Doom Metal queen Vanessa Nocera, 'Voodoo Dawn' proudly displays a plethora of sagacious riffs that crush like a two-ton hammer and yet sickens enough to contaminate a diseased swamp. Sludge parts crawl in and out on occasions in an malefic alliance with some ugly D-Beat indulgence!

"Fronted by front-woman Vanessa Nocera (Wooden Stake, Scaremaker, etc), Skeletal Spectre went on to release two full-length albums under the Razorback Records banner, and now with a brand new album entitled 'Voodoo Dawn,' the band is all geared up to showcase yet another colossal-riff fest done in the most extremely obscene way! "
Skeletal Spectre front-woman Vanessa Nocera added, "We are proud and honored to be on Pulverised Records’ roster! Definitely a label that I find to be one of the coolest around! We put a great deal of hard work into this album so that it would stand out from anything we’ve ever done. I think it is a testament to the band’s future, and we are looking to play live, especially in Europe so watch out for us because we’re coming!"
Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin further quoted: "The moment we heard the beginning riff off the first track from 'Voodoo Dawn,' it completely blew us away and somehow we already knew something filthy was brewing inside this album. There was a perfect balance of those trademark Swede-eerie melodies blending together some of the most fucking fat riffs that any Sludge / Doom maniacs would most certainly approve! It is always very satisfying to discover a great hidden gem in this business, and we are definitely proud to say that Skeletal Spectre is indeed one of those moments. Keep your eyes and ears peeled open, the Voodoo Horror curse shall exhibit its ugly head soon!"
