Swedish Thrash machine WARFECT will release their first album Spectre Of Devastation on Napalm Records on November 13. Uncompromisingly driving blasts and smashing drums in the tradition of scene greats like Kreator, Legion Of The Damned and old school Amerincal Thrash, are the trademark of the three-piece.
WARFECT is one of the most convincing yet underrated acts in the Swedish metal scene. Straight from the Gothenborg underground, the three-piece carries their full potential to the next level with their fourth full length album Spectre Of Devastation! Their debut on Napalm Records lifts the curtain and unveils a true thrash metal engine.
Straight away the first notes of “Pestilence” state clear that this wrecking machine has not come to take prisoners. The Swedish artillery strikes in the tradition of Kreator, Legion Of The Damned and old school American thrash metal and paves its way with uncompromisingly driving blasts and smashing drums. “Left To Rot” mixes a blackened attitude to the Thrash outfit, while “Into The Fray” leads back to the origins of the genre by implementing fast screaming guitar tunes.
The eight songs of Spectre Of Devastation convince with on point production and the great mastering skills of Grammy winning producer Flemming Rasmussen, who burst onto the scene by working on Rainbow’s Difficult To Cure and Metallica’s all time genre classics Ride The Lightning, Masters Of Puppets and …And Justice For All, before he won the Grammy for his work on the legendary song “One”.
The exceptional cover artwork is illustrated by leading German cover artwork designer Andreas Marschall, known for his work for bands like King Diamond, Kreator, Sodom, Obituary or Blind Guardian, to just name a few.
Kris Wallstrom, the band’s bass player and vocalist was also a guest on the latest episode of the Metal Pilgrim YouTube show. Speaking about working with Napalm Records, Kris said that it is amazing to work with such an established company and expressed his hope that this album will be the band’s breakthrough record.
