King Dude – Music to Make War To (Ván Records)

King Dude – Music to Make War To (Ván Records)

Having dealt with the topic of love and all its casualties on 2016’s ‘Sex’, TJ Cowgill tackles the polar opposite on latest album ‘Music to Make War To’. Over the course of seven records King Dude’s sound has shifted and developed into something wholly unrecognisable.. Read More
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Double Negative (Leather Apron)

The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Double Negative (Leather Apron)

A decade on the road, but with a lyrical sensibility slammed firmly in the 19th century, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing (TMTWNBBFN in all future references to save my keyboard getting battered out of existence) are in the year of our.. Read More
Fotocrime – Always Night (Golden Antenna)

Fotocrime – Always Night (Golden Antenna)

I have to echo a colleague’s recent review and ponder the question of whether “Goth” is looked on as a musical swear word these days? Take Fotocrime for example. They have no problem admitting it is “Always Night” but there is no mention of the.. Read More
Cursed Moon – Rites Of Darkness (Hells Headbangers)

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
Porn – The Ogre Inside (Les Disques Rubicon)

Porn – The Ogre Inside (Les Disques Rubicon)

Apparently, French industrial/goth metalers Porn, are named after the album ‘Pornography’ by The Cure. While I find that a little hard to believe, you’ll be pleased to know that their sound is every bit as filthy as the sort of stuff that you used to.. Read More
Veikchild - Dark Hellectro Monument (iM Electronica)

Veikchild – Dark Hellectro Monument (iM Electronica)

Veikchild are a project formed by an unknown mastermind (I’m guessing French) and I suppose they are the goth/darkwave entry into the synthwave movement. This is more inspired by films/video games music with occasional bouts of singing added in. Their list of influences include amongst.. Read More
Suns of Thyme - Cascades (Napalm)

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
Dperd – V (My Kingdom)

Dperd – V (My Kingdom)

Dperd are an enigma. In a time of internet saturation they almost don’t exist. I used a popular search engine that rhymes with floogle to research them and came up with nothing, nada . Just a suggestion that I meant Speed. I eventually found them.. Read More
Mortiis- The Great Deceiver (Omnipresence)

Mortiis- The Great Deceiver (Omnipresence)

Old pointy nose is back! Mortiis and friends return after a 5 year hiatus and he has even released a statement that the goblin mask is coming out of mothballs.  Good because this glorious electro industrial pop metal record deserves a heavy dose of prosthetics.. Read More
Publicist UK – Forgive Yourself (Relapse)

Publicist UK – Forgive Yourself (Relapse)

When an album comes through for review that states “Recommended if you like… Joy Division”, it’s certain to draw my interest. In the case of Publicist UK (the UK part being a particular curse bestowed upon acts of a more…ahem…”gothic” nature), the comparison is mainly.. Read More
Ides of Gemini – Old World New Wave  (Neurot)

Ides of Gemini – Old World New Wave (Neurot)

From the off, this album simply screams ‘now’ – a wistful, female-fronted power trio delivering arcane-tinged, esoteric hymns through the medium of ethereal vocals, quasi-tribal percussion and metal-tinged riffing from the (obligatory) big-bearded guitarist. Cloaked in an autumnal ambience and merging influences as diverse as.. Read More
Albez Duz – The Coming of Mictlan (Iron Bonehead)

Albez Duz – The Coming of Mictlan (Iron Bonehead)

Whilst I may now be in my 45th year on this planet, and sometimes look back with fondness on the days of vinyl, tape exchanges, and badly printed fanzines on a few pages of photocopied A4 paper, the modern age of the First World is.. Read More
