M!R!M!-Iuvenis

gothpost

Artist: M!R!M! Release: Iuvenis Label: Manic Depression This album starts off with one of the most creamy, velveteen sounds that I have ever heard. Way to start, right? The blissful melody is quickly accompanied by stirring beats and vocals that are mostly resembling of whispers. And that, dear readers is “Lotus”, which serves as an opener into this sonic mirage.

Artist: Lyncelia Release: Forsaken Innocense Label: Self-released Judging by the photographs that accompany this disc, it is easy to understand this band’s destination, more or less. My guess would be something connected to gothic rock-or dark/cold wave. A description that is not far from being true. Indeed so, this French band displays an affection for the gothic and wave sounds of past days. And they do this rather well, may I add. This is lyncelias  second full-length release, so far. Technically speaking, though, it would perhaps be more appropriate to…
