Bearl Hoffayeur Un bon album de tech death solide de la part de Spheron avec un côté prog assez bienvenue. Favorite track: Pendulum.

Poesy Rider J'avais trouvé l'album précédent pas mal du tout, mais là, le bond en avant est foudroyant. Spheron réalise un tour de force avec un album d'une solidité à toute épreuve. Le death-black du groupe se pare de touches progressives bienvenues et donne à cet album un aspect compacte mais très digeste. Bien joué les gars ! Favorite track: Bound in Empty Jars.

mourner This and the debut are top tech death albums, up there with the best. All technical skills aside, Spheron are able to write very good songs, sometimes full of melody and sometimes full of power sometimes both. They can also be pretty fierce if they want to. Great stuff all around 🤘 I'm hoping for a new album soon.

BlackLotus I just had to get physical copies for my best mate and me. This album is just amazing. I keep coming back to it which is saying a lot as I haven't been this excited about a tech-death album in quite a while. Make yourself a favor and go get a copy. You won't regret it!

The universe – A complex clockwork?

Are human beings gear-wheels in the mechanism of a fine-adjusted clockwork? Is the universe just the awe-inspiring work of a tactic watchmaker? Technical death metallers Spheron put these questions to the test on their second full-length “A Clockwork Universe” and made another quantum leap compared to their debut “Ecstasy Of God”.

Besides the compositional and technical progression the band sticks to the team Christoph Brandes (producer – Necrophagist, Deadborn, Imperium Dekadenz o.a.) and Eliran Kantor (artwork – Testament, Hate Eternal, Atheist o.a.). Both parts seem really inspired by the quintet as they went all out. The sound creates an omnipresent atmosphere while it remains crystal-clear and the cover-artwork carries this vibe to the outside.

The result is an ambitious album that leaves the listeners with the question whether they stick with the “Watchmaker analogy” or not!
