On Halloween night, we will be releasing the album! We will be doing a free show at Sound Exchange here in Houston, performing the album as well as having our friends from Kingsville, Funeral Ash as special guests.
The Dungeon program, which airs on KNON 89.3 FM in Dallas, TX on Saturday nights at midnight, played "Spiritual Gallows" last night and they now have it for requests! So make sure and call in and request it loud and proud!
We have some live shows coming up if you are in the Texas area.

Spectral Manifest has launched an app for our fans' mobile devices. Spread the word and thank you all for your continued support. The wraith horde grows!
We have decided a video will be made for the song "Forbidden Arts," before the release of the album in October. We will be working with two top notch filmmakers on this project, Josh Vargas and Mel House, who have agreed to collaborate on this beast.
Well, it's been one hell of a gap of time since the last update on here, for many reasons, but now the time has come and one hell of an update it is. The album has been recorded, we did it at Negative Image Design Studio in Mission, TX at the end of April 2014. JD De La Rosa handled all of the production duties and in two days time we captured what is now the debut album for Spectral Manifest on Ossuary Industries. Eight tracks, clocking in at just over 34 minutes, self titled, coming in October.
A whole lot going on as of late, we just released "Ritual Offerings of Eternal Chaos," a live split with Immolith from New Jersey, it's available through the Dread Lair as the last release we had set up before signing our contract with Ossuary Industries. For a live recording it is pretty sick, our part was recorded, mixed and mastered by Nick Forkel (guitarist of Turbid North). Immolith's six songs are killer as well. Quite pleased with the end result, with only 200 being made, so get em while you can!
In other news, our bassist Ulfr has relocated to New Mexico, so while he gets settled in, the band has taken a short break, with plans to get in the studio soon and then return to the stage in the fall and winter.
Well, well, it appears we have neglected this page and site a little bit, so it is way past time for an update! Well, the contract was officially signed with Ossuary Industries in April, we have some sick shows coming up, including the Pull the Plug Fest in Houston, TX, where we will be sharing the stage with the mighty MASSACRE! As far as the album goes, we had initially laid down the rough tracks at Feral Noise Studios where our friends Mhinotahn and Brimwylf recorded... unfortunately, there was a hard drive crash at the studio and those tracks were lost. So, we are starting from scratch. Stay tuned, more to come, promise the next update won't take a year! ~ C.G.G.
First, thank you all for your support, both online and in buying cds, shirts, coming out to the shows, etc. We have had a lot going on in the last 6-7 months, a few killer festivals all over Texas, culminating in our joining the Ossuary Industries family. This weekend we perform as part of their SXSW showcase in Austin, TX and hope that you can make it out to witness what could be one of the sickest shows in Austin this year.
For those who missed the news, yes Spectral Manifest is now a trio. We are very pleased with the results thus far and look forward to entering the studio during the summer and returning to the stage in the fall.
And then there were three. C.G.G.
