CD offers songs that are a blend of industrial and goth rock music.
Guitars, bass and drums are the primary instruments with electronic
programming and sampling mixed in with slightly distorted vocals.
While the music has an overall dark
feel to it, it doesn’t come off as angry. There’s a sort of campiness
in some of the songs that is found in other bands such as The
Electric Hellfire Club, Genitorturers,
Lords of Acid
Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. The song titles such as “Devil’s
Little Helper”, “Kitten With A Whip” and “Justine Queen
of Pain” fit perfectly with the music contained within them.
If it wasn’t for the electronics
in the music, these songs would sound strictly like 80's goth rock.
The structures are hard, heavy and straight forward with standard verse/chorus/verse
arrangements. The electronics are a nice touch, but I don’t feel that
they are used enough to allow this CD to appeal to industrial music
fans. This is definitely music for people who enjoy guitar heavy goth
Each song delivered here is good,
but they all do sound somewhat similar to each other. Once you hear
track one you’ll have a pretty good idea of how the rest of the CD is
going to sound.
There’s an overall muffled sound
to this recording that gives it a garage rock sound. What it comes down
to is that this is old school sounding goth rock music. If you like
heavier guitar driven goth music with male singing, you will probably
enjoy what this CD has to offer. However, there’s really nothing here
that will appeal to fans of electro-industrial, EBM, or darkwave music.
