Reue um Reue is very proud to present the first vinyl mini-LP by the mysterious Italian one-man project SPETTRO FAMILY, following the much acclaimed tape album “Candelora” published last year on Brave Mysteries. It might be because he has been living in a presumably haunted house all his life that SPETTRO FAMILY succeeds in creating seemingly without effort the most truly haunting music, both bringing back to life the magic of GOBLIN’s giallo/zombie flick soundtracks, and channelling the spirits of the big synth-worshipping Italian post-industrialists (think RUNES ORDER or GERSTEIN). But the wraiths inhabiting this particular album come from further east: “La Famiglia Spettro” was inspired by a journey through Transylvania and carries in its subtle analogue synthscapes, achingly beautiful piano melodies, soft crackling gramophone sounds and spectral voices all the flavour of a decadent old world, and such an intense sense of sadness and nostalgia that it might very well bring you face to face with your own ghosts.

"Les échantillons aux tonalités religieuses et maléfiques ("Psichiatria primo Piano") donnent d'emblée le ton. On plonge en plein cinéma d'horreur, pianos mélancoliques et mellotrons n'étant pas sans évoquer Goblin période Suspiria ("Oltretomba"). Ritournelles entêtantes et synthés analogiques inspirent une angoisse latente, une terreur sourde et un spleen funèbre. Dans ses plus belles pièces, le disque nous fait même penser à une rencontre entre le Riz Ortolani de Cannibal Holocaust et la froideur synthétique post-indsutrielle de Runes Order. Musiques à écouter de préférence à la lumière des cierges et dans de grandes demures isolées." (Mäx lachaud pour Obsküre)

"Die insgesamt 6 Tracks ergeben in ihrer Einheit einen faszinierenden Soundtrack in bester italienischer Horror-Tradition und ich bin mir sicher, in der Zukunft von der SPETTRO FAMILY noch mehr zu hören" (Marco Fiebag, Black Magazin)

"Spooky and haunting synth music that does not always sound like synth music but more neo-classical in a way... a beautiful soundtrack for your dark haunting dreams..." (Enfant Terrible)
