Subterfuge-Blind To Reason

gothpost review

Artist: Subterfuge Release: Blind To Reason Label: Heartland Records Well, being on a label that goes under the name of Heartland, is a pretty strong indication regarding the genre connected to this release. A surely easy guess would be that we are dealing with yet another gothic rock album. Which is a correct assumption, when it comes to the musical style of preference that Subterfuge willingly deliver.

Gothic subculture

gothic subculture

Fascination with gothic subculture dates since 1979’s, when Bauhaus released the song “Bela Lugosi’s Dead“. Since than gothic subculture has evolved into something that intrigues (normal) society. People usually associate goths with negative things like depression,suicide,satanisim but it is needles to say that this opinion is wrong. They are people who enjoy the world, beauty, art, poetry and they are deeply in love with the romantic thought of their dark world filled with books and good music. They wear black but their mind is full of colors. The gothic subculture…
