M. W. Wild-The Third Decade

gothpost review

Artist: M. W. Wild Release: The Third Decade Label: Echozone What we have here is M. W. Wild’ s solo debut. He is not a newcomer though having been a member, as well as the founder of the Cascades. A gothic rock ensemble that was founded in 1988. After all these details, it is easy to come to the conclusion that we are dealing with a veteran of the aforementioned genre. Which is an accurate statement by itself. Now, what could one expect from the first solo album of an…

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.

Something expected of course. Let’s…

Seren Rosso’s- Errant Shadow

review gothpost.com

Artist: Seren Rosso’s Errant Shadow Release: Errant Shadow Label: Aenima Not much I knew regarding this band so far, that is! Their own description, regarding their sound, is the following tag: symphonic gothic metal opera. Nightwish and Therion are cited among this band’s main influences. The first mention is clearly on spot. These details easily lead me to think that this is a quite ambitious work. And a difficult one to pull through, perhaps.
