Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and depth is not going to.. Read More

The Vice – XIII Years (S/R)

This E.P from Stockholm’s The Vice is 4 tracks of Nightbreed style Goth rock with hints of metal.  This trio layer on the atmosphere like the beer and sweat on the steps in the Slimelight (treacherous masonry that it is) . Rickard has a vocal style.. Read More

Cursed Moon – Rites Of Darkness (Hells Headbangers)

I’ll start off by saying – I like this album. I am not sure if I like it for the same reasons that Sal Hellraiser wants me to. This is good fun Goth. He is marketing it as Deathwave but for me this is pure.. Read More

I had been waiting this one very impatiently along with tour dates. When the latter came along there were cries of indignation from lots of people as the UK was not included but the band were quick to say sorry and a second leg, including.. Read More

Suns of Thyme – Cascades (Napalm)

Genres are ever expanding. No one wants to be constrained to a pigeon hole so they create new ones for others to then be forced into.  Berlin’s “Suns of Thyme” are described as Krautgaze which I-with Holmes like deduction take it to be one part.. Read More

Secrets Of The Moon – Sun (Prophecy)

Bah you get that all important albums of the year list sorted and drawn up and then something comes along in December sending you back to the drawing board and causing the poor band precariously tottering at number 20 to fall over the ledge. To.. Read More

Strange Here – II (Minotauro)

Disappears – Irreal (Kranky)

Disappears – Irreal (Kranky)

So we are more in Pitchfork than Iron Fist or Terrorizer territory here but we like to mix things up a bit and Disappears sound is certainly one that I am au fait with. I have fleeting memories of their last album ‘Era’ getting a.. Read More

Fatalism – Mystery Of Death (Eternal Death)

Fatalism – Mystery Of Death (Eternal Death)

Interesting all round here. Firstly this EP was presented in a small clamshell case (as was one by Tare delivered with it) containing a mini 3” CD and a cassette both with the recorded material on. This is a really nice way of doing things.. Read More
