Fotocrime – South of Heaven (Profound Lore)

I had been looking forward to Fotocrime’s new album ever since it was announced. The band’s previous releases with their mixture of post punk, dark wave and goth rock were right up my alley, my favourite being the EP Always… Continue Reading →

Then Comes Silence – Machine (SPV)

Nothing melts my frozen heart as much as the current resurgence of Post Punk sounds. (You say post punk I still like to say Goth). With bands like Beastmilk and Publicist UK coming out of the dry ice in the… Continue Reading →

King Dude – Full Virgo Moon (Ván Records)

Across seven albums, spanning eight years, King Dude has explored every facet of folk, Americana and post punk. His eighth LP, ‘Full Virgo Moon’ feels like a return to the melancholy roots of his earliest releases ‘Tonight’s Special Death’ and… Continue Reading →

Ainsoph – Ω – V (Wolves Of Hades)

Not to be confused with the cult Italian industrial ambient outfit, this group are described as “shadowy wanderers’ from the Dutch underground. With a strong visual aesthetic looking at their promo pictures there is not much else to go on… Continue Reading →

The Wraith – Gloom Ballet (Southern Lord)

The holiday season is approaching, and The Wraith from Los Angeles with one Brit among them are evoking some ghosts of the past in good old British Christmas tradition fashion. Settled somewhere between goth rock, punk and post-punk Gloom Ballet… Continue Reading →

Asphodèle – Jours Pâles (Ladlo Productions)

The flowers of Asphodèle may have only just bloomed but one look at the cast list of this brand-new French band was all I needed to grab the album and put it on my review pile. For a start we… Continue Reading →

Cold In Berlin – Rituals Of Surrender (New Heavy Sounds)

Some bands have a special quality. Maybe it’s a unique sound or look while for others it might simply be an aura. For some years I’ve been intrigued by Cold In Berlin after seeing them at Candlefest in London’s Underworld… Continue Reading →

Wires & Lights – A Chasm Here And Now (SPV)

Wires & Lights are a relatively new band from Berlin, Germany, and the album at hand, A Chasm Here And Now, is their first long player. What’s it like? Well, the press info is all in superlatives. And no, that’s… Continue Reading →

Silence In The Snow – Levitation Chamber (Prophecy)

After being the equivalent of a persona non grata for quite some time, goth rock seems to be having a revival at the moment. That’s fine with me, because I like goth rock. New bands from the US seem to… Continue Reading →

Deflore & Jaz Coleman – Party In The Chaos (Subsound)

If you have never heard of Italian instrumental duo Deflore, well you can no doubt be forgiven. They have never hit my radar despite having four albums out. If however you don’t know who Jaz Coleman is, well shame on… Continue Reading →

Membranes – What Nature Gives… Nature Takes Away (Cherry Red Records)

The Membranes had always been on my peripheral vision and having been around since 1977 well they should have been. However after seeing them a couple of years back supporting Killing Joke founding member and Louder Than War head honcho… Continue Reading →

Camilla Sparksss – Brutal (On The Camper Records)

Sometimes we get some really leftfield curveball discs sent in to review and whereas if they are digital downloads and we can press delete and think, not for us, we do try our best. This is one such example and… Continue Reading →
