INFINITE SPECTRUM’s Sensory Records debut, Haunter Of The Dark is a full-length concept recording based on the short story by master of horror, H. P. Lovecraft, with the band bringing the famed short story to life through ambitious compositions featuring an abundance of dynamic, virtuosic playing, and powerful, melodic vocals. Teaming up with Grammy award-winning engineer Chris Theis once again, as with their 2013 debut album, Misguided, on Haunter Of The Dark INFINITE SPECTRUM has created a remarkable sonic journey for fans of prog both old and new. Combining theatrical elements with the progressive metal genre, the band has crafted their own brand of musical storytelling, which includes elements of radio-style drama for a uniquely cinematic listening experience.
Outburn Magazine’s featured 9/10 review of the album included, “While Haunter Of The Dark may only be a sophomore outing, INFINITE SPECTRUM plays with all of the technique and finesse that more experienced counterparts like Symphony X are known for, and in the pantheon of epic concept albums, this record will surely be remembered.” Bloody-Disgusting noted of the album, “If you’re a fan of bands like Symphony X or Dream Theater but always wanted them to have a little bit of a horror twist, this is right up your alley,” and Music Street Journal wrote, “While still possessing a strong metal edge, they are much more melodic than the death metal bands and not as suffocating in their approach. Their musical style can best be compared to the likes of Symphony X, Dream Theater and Circus Maximus, although with a much darker edge. They are the only Lovecraftian prog metal band I know of.”
