SPECTRE is the new Laibach album to be released on 3 March 2014!
The deluxe edition of the album comes with four extra tracks plus the SPECTRE Partybook: a laminated linen bound party membership book with SPECTRE’s manifesto and an invite to register your allegiance to its thesis.
With SPECTRE Laibach has created a big, important, and almost dangerous step forward; it seems that this time it has fatally crossed the Rubicon. On this album the group – which has never defined itself politically, but has, nevertheless, constantly analysed politics through its work – comes across as politically engaged as never before.
SPECTRE literally sounds like a political manifesto manifest in poetic form. Titles and lyrics couldn’t be more direct. With these lyrics and songs, Laibach, who has always given a controversial impression – or an impression of controversy – especially in terms of its political orientation, is now very clearly taking a position on the political spectrum and probably irreversibly abolishing its own (to some extent quite comfortable) political ‘freedom’ and neutrality

"and SPECTRE always delivers what it promises" (From Russia With Love, 1963)
In a clear manifesto for the future - the overwhelming expression is for a direct revolution not just of the economical order but also to overturn the stuckness within the human soul - based upon acquisition and gain - to overcome a deep sense of personal inferiority and to connect to others in a form of human solidarity. So Laibach have turned back to the work of Test Department, or alternatively they have stepped out of the shadows of their Central European Depression after the first seeds were stamped upon in the 1930's to now actually believe in a future. So there is an embracing of Snowden, Occupy, Assange and the other green shoots of modernity which are sprouting in the wake of the cufflink scrape across the laminate of the New World Order just appearing to be a loud screech - look into the face of Kerry/Chaney.
Music- much slower, ponderous, elements of The Normal, some electro power ballads, less strident, more female counterpoint to the gravel that flows across the speakers, electro sounds - it may alienate those who want to hear Die Liebe and Panorama- but whereas punk disappeared into parody and industrial segued into HM or black clad youth clutching Spengler's decline of the West - anything that posits a future is welcome.

An amazing album! One of their best. Dark heavy electronics, deep vocals, all with that Laibach touch.Published 1 month ago by David Chapman
Probably Laibach's best album dealing with the current crisis in Europe.Published 22 months ago by Diogo Ferreira
Excellent album. Really worth getting this version as the added tracks are as good if not better than some of the 'main' tracks. had it months & still listening regularly.Published on 21 Oct. 2014 by T Day
