Gothic is a darkwave/electro experimental project from
Italy. This is a double CD recording packed with variety. Some of it
works, and some of it doesn't.
The music offered here basically goes in every direction imaginable
never really focusing on one sound. There are elements of gothic rock,
darkwave and electro experimental coming and going all the time. Some
of the songs are frantic, chaotic and energetic while others are slow,
cold and dreary. The vocals in the songs are just as varied offering
deep singing, high-pitched screaming and monotone speech.
Some songs sound like old school gothic rock, some like modern darkwave,
some like experimental and some like dark funk. The listener is definitely
given a lot of styles of music on this recording. Unfortunately, none
of it really does anything for me. I prefer more structured music myself.
Also, there's a somewhat amateur sound to the music and vocals. It's
obvious that the musicians involved in this project have talent, but
more practice and improved audio production would be good.
