The Spectre of Lonely Souls

Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)

The Spectre of Lonely Souls is the second full-length album from Chile's Hellish and it is a raucous slab of vicious blackened thrash. Let me start by complimenting Hellish for starting the album with a beautiful solo piano intro ("Rising") that sets up a huge case of whiplash when "The Night" comes roaring through the speakers. Nicely done. After that, The Spectre of Lonely Souls settles into a more typical black/thrash groove full of speed, buzzsaw riffing, evil rasps and demented lead work. There are no standout tracks as they all sound similar but each one is ready to throttle you if you turn your back. This might not be particularly original, but it is wickedly fun.
