IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present From the Mist...We are but Dust, a special split LP between SUNSPELL and SAUDADE. Two otherwise unknown hordes, From the Mist...We are but Dust features exclusive songs from both bands, and jointly serves a concise 'n' cutting introduction to both.
Hailing from America, SUNSPELL is one-man entity that brews forth a bewitching sort of black metal that maintains a distant, ghostly air whilst remaining palpably physical. As such, both of SUNSPELL's contributions here are double-digit epics, ominously drifing like funeral fog but grinding the listener into dirt by side's end. Canada's SAUDADE also grind the listener into dirt on their side of the split LP, but in an entirely different-yet-complementary manner. A power-trio, SAUDADE's attack is equally built upon blackgrinding bestiality and black metal's fundamentally punk origins, pulsing filth with alarming economy. Together, From the Mist...We are but Dust is aptly fucking titled: enter, and end.

Such an intense and satisfying split release featuring two staples of the US Death Metal scene. Perhaps my favourite Vastum and Spectral Voice songs put to record.
The Vastum track is a hell of a fun ride with particularly sickening vocals and the Spectral Voice one is faster than their standard output...for the most part.
Glorious! I only wish it were longer. Neil Grace
