Spectral Incursion  


An obscure thrash band from the late eighties, these guys started life as Graven Image and switched name to Spectral Incursion sometime between 1987 and 1989. They only managed one official release, a four-track EP in 1989 (and calling that an "official release" might be a stretch, apparently it was quite a low-budget self-released product), though StormSpell compiled some of their other recordings to comprise the 2011-released Anthology compilation in 2011. Anyway, the songs on the EP are jumpy, chaotic, frenzied thrash, kind of in the mold of old Watchtower. The production is pretty rough and the songs could have used some tightening up, but there were some great ideas here and if they had been able to take that Watchtower influence and run with it they could have gotten somewhere. As it is, this is an interesting curiosity at best.
