Emit Re-Releasing "Spectre Music Of An Antiquary" Album

This October, Crucial Blast Records will officially re-release "Spectre Music Of An Antiquary," the out-of-print 2012 album from U.K. ambient/black/noise metal entity Emit. The label comments:

"A full-length collection of murky ambiance, deranged '80s-style synthesizer-driven, ritualistic black drift, and stranger sound forays into black noise, 'Spectre Music Of An Antiquary' was first released as an extremely limited cassette on Glorious North, marking the first new material from Emit in over five years.

"This British outfit has been creating their unique brand of experimental blackened delirium since the late 1990s, branching out of a low-fi UK black metal band called Ante Cryst. With Emit, the members began to explore a creepy, synth-heavy sound that was unmistakably descended from black metal but supremely more deformed, combining harsh electronic noise, horror-movie soundtrack atmospherics, droning keyboards, wrecked and fractured black metal guitars, and bizarre vocals that would often push the collective's music into a strange realm of hallucinatory, ghastly psychedelia.

"Though on 'Spectre Music Of An Antiquary,' Emit's sound has morphed into something that more resembles some mutated, primitive '80s darkwave being completely taken over by malevolent spirits, with eerie electronic drones and distant moaning vocals often taking over; very different from past recordings, though no less weird or phantasmagoric. And as with other offerings, Spectre is concerned more with the occult lore and hidden history of the British Isles than Satanism or goat worship or any of the other over-used black metal tropes, which all serves to enhance the wraithlike vibe of these songs.

"A must-hear for anyone into the murky surrealistic blackness of artists like Reverorum Ib Malacht (a band that has shared members with Emit in the past), Yoga, Occultation, Uno Actu, Utarm, and Dapnom, Spectre Music Of An Antiquary will see official re-release via Crucial Blast on both digital download and digipak featuring evocative, all-new artwork on October 28th, 2014."
