This 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 and My 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 rock music.
       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.
