Descendants Of Cain-Conversation With Mirrors

gothpost review

Artist: Descendants Of Cain Release: Conversation With Mirrors Label: Echozone Descendants of Cain is such an awesome choice for a band name! Way to start, right? As most of you know, this is not a newcomer-in fact, this band was formed back in 1998.As it is really evident by their name, they have the tendency to explore mystical subjects that deal with arcane visions and texts. The medium that is used in order to convey these themes is gothic rock. But I feel that this tag is somehow not valid…

Seren Rosso’s- Errant Shadow


Artist: Seren Rosso’s Errant Shadow Release: Errant Shadow Label: Aenima Not much I knew regarding this band so far, that is!

To achieve this, one needs to pay attention to each and every aspect of creating an opera-like sound. Without…

Lyncelia-Forsaken Innocense


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…

Artist: Loewenhertz Release: Echtzeit Label:Echozone It is not difficult to guess the country that this band comes from! Loewenhertz are a german duo, delivering an eclectic brunch of synth-pop. This is actually their second full- length release. “Echtzeit” is a strong album, I could admit! The material presented here is a delicate, emotionally driven electronic pop music. While that does not sound original at all, it is the quality of the compositions that matters the most. Using this mode, we can start decoding (or dissecting, if you may!) their sound,…
