The Spectral Sorrows is the third full-length studio album by the Swedishdeath metal band, Edge of Sanity, recorded by Börje Forsberg in July–August 1993 and released by Black Mark Productions in 1993. Unfortunately, the bassist Anders Lindberg could not record the album due to mandatory military service. This album begins Edge of Sanity's progression from pure death metal to a more progressive and melodic sound. For instance, clean vocals and melodic passages are now more prominent in the band's music with one track, "Sacrificed", being sung entirely in clean vocals, in a track which exemplifies more of a goth rock direction. The album is still mostly rooted in death metal, however.
