German "graverockers" THE SPOOK will release their second album, "Let There Be Dark", on August 31 through Fiendforce Records/Cargo. The CD, which features guest appearances by Dave Pybus (CRADLE OF FILTH) and Goolsby and TB of BLITZKID fame, was produced by KREATOR mainman Mille Petrozza and THE SPOOK guitarist Ross Feratu. Mixing and mastering duties were handled in the U.K. by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, CRADLE OF FILTH, CALIBAN, AS I LAY DYING, TRIVIUM).
When bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (OZZY OSBOURNE, ex-ROB ZOMBIE) heard the first rough mixes of the new album, he commented, "This shit rocks! It's amazing stuff! I simply love this band: THE SPOOK are one of my faves and the new songs sound like a natural progression while still maintaining the 'horror rock' aesthetic. I anxiously await the new record!"
Mille stated about THE SPOOK's new CD, "THE SPOOK's 'Let There Be Dark' is a pearl of dark rock music which will make your heart beat faster, cleanse your soul and cause your muscles to convulse. The pressing, transparent, indecent production can only be described by the term coined by the band themselves: 'graverock deluxe,' creating a powerful gloomy synthesis between — and crossing the borders separating — horrorpunk, deathrock, metal, stoner rock, and wave-gothik. 'Let There Be Dark' will blow fans away!"
Later this year THE SPOOK will headline the European Hell Nights Tour, with support from DEEP EYNDE, NIM VIND and CRIMSON GHOSTS.
