ZX Spectrum - Melodic Death Metal from Latvia
The band has born about five years ago in Latvia. Musical repertoire consisted mostly of light rock direction by that time. Along with the members rotation bands style was changing cardinally and rapidly. The wish for something more interesting, more heavy, more aggressive has appeared after the band discovered Carcasss Swansong. It was an exact definition of what band was searching for an interesting mixture of melody and aggression. ZX SPECTRUM found such a synthesis very unusual and exciting; the band tries to carry it until the current moment. Its different to define the bands style, although some call it as death rock, deathnroll or melodic death, however the band itself doesnt care about the stylish boundaries at all. As to the lyrics theme direction, it can be defined as a socially psychological, sometimes nihilistic, sometimes skeptic. Theres a man with its complexes, mistakes and problems at the center of the texts attention.
In 2004 ZX SPECTRUM has recorded the first demo CD called Not Really Demo. The CD consisted of four own songs and one Carcasss cover. The second demo CD Human Herd was recorded during summer of 2005 where where included nine own songs and a cover for Roxette (played in the bands style manner). The entire recordings were made by the band itself using its own equipment and abilities.
Besides the own songs guys have a lot of time to do the covers because of the quite frequent rehearsing as well. There are always a lot of new ideas, which are thoroughly worked out to get higher results. ZX SPECTRUM are full of enthusiasm and ready to accept all the offers and to work further.
