Dark adventure awaits!


Formed in a trans-continental pact between genetic clones, the symphonic death metal of London based SPECTRAL DARKWAVE captures epic fragments of horror from across time, space and the multiverse.


Fusing the limitless possibilities outlined in early computer music, European and doom metal, the band’s grinding rhythms and twisted melodies deliver a crushing reminder of the depravities carried out in the name of human progress.


Using their mechanical creation ‘The Slavedriver’ to bring the full vision to bear in both light and sound, SPECTRAL DARKWAVE fully transport their audience across the ages.  Twice reaching the final stages of Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses regional competition, and finalists in London Mammothfest unsigned competition, their live show is unique on the unsigned circuit.


With their 2015 debut album Last First Contact they have unleashed a journey into the many hells of mankind, with each song wrought in the cries of bereft mothers, nuclear strikes and epic orchestral flourishes.


With the singles 'The Price Of Victory' and 'A Toll Is Due' released in early 2019, Spectral Darkwave raised their production standards to the next level. The band are currently finalising the recording of their next full-length record for release in late 2019.
