    Spectre was released in May on the German label Killekill. Eomac is in fact Ian McDonnell, half of  the duo Lakker. This album explores the darker side of techno whilst touching on many other genres, There's breaks, bass and eerie swirling synths all wrapped up in a sea of grainy relentless distortion, The thing I really like about this album is the intensity level which is maintained throughout. Spectre is definitely full on, but has the feels of a tempered behemoth. There's a lot of bangs, growls and hisses throughout Spectre, but is still highly listenable, and a very impressive album.
