Like it's predecessor, Black Fast's Spectre of Ruin was summoned into sharp focus at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida, with Erik Rutan, the Hate Eternal frontman and ex-Morbid Angel guitarist who has produced albums by genre titans like Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, and Six Feet Under. It's all killer, no filler, demonstrating the destructive force of focused neo-thrash and progressive death-infused heavy metal at it's finest. Black Fast follow the roadmap laid down by the great bands with "Angel" and "Death" in their names, swearing off the trappings of the mainstream with a steadfast dedication to their chosen craft. As vocalist/guitarist, Aaron Akin once summarized, "We've pushed our chips all-in since the beginning. We threw caution to the wind. We're playing metal. We don't really give a shit about 'making it.'" This music is a vibrant soundtrack to society's collapse and a celebration of defiant resolution. The Black Fast mission is ruthlessly simple: champion musical aggression, bark at the moon, raise a fist and headbang like there's no tomorrow.
