For The Things I Care
Martello - guitars and electronic grooves
EVEN VAST: "Teach me how
to bleed" even
preview-review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
Great gothic Dark penalized
by the production
Italian underground is full of very interesting bands that I can’t
understand are not well supported by media. One of these is EVEN VAST.
album is the result of many years spent to find the right musical
dimension, and I can’t but admit that the band has released a very
good cd, full of interesting tracks; on the whole a great gothic dark
opera, that is penalized by a mediocre production. It’s a shame
because these songs are great and they’d need a better production in
order to be compared to the famous gothic-dark masterpieces.
Martello plays guitars and realizes also many electronic grooves; Great
work for him, well made under all points of view; Very good mood
realized by electronic vibes that are the add value for this album.
also Antonietta's heavenly voice…Great timbre and very good
first song “ Infected” reminds me of the best The Gathering …pure
goth rock full of pathos and romanticism realized thanks to the work of
a perfect rhythmic session and the whole atmosphere that is full
of good electronic parts.
still sentimental gothic rock the next “Away” that will be the joy
of fans of The Gathering and Theatre of Tragedy of these latest
years…It’s impossible not to underline once more that these
songs should need a better production.
melancholy of “Limelight” is pure melody for your deep feelings…Luca’s
guitar seems to enter into your hidden side thanks to the good
arrangement made by a great keyboard synth …without to forget
great Antonietta's great vocals.
time for a great cover! ”Love will tears us apart” is the famous Joy
Division song, re-interpreted in according to their style….Nothing to
say…just a good song!
is another gothic hit that can’t but remind of the best latest The
Gathering also because Antonietta seems to remind of Anneke
in an incredible way!
the abyss of modern Dark there’s the atmosphere of “I do” that is
still penalized by a very mediocre production…Anyway it’s a good
song in which the band mixes psychedelic dark and modern deep gothic
modern dark is the next “ About you”…I love this song that seems
to be very original concerning the atmosphere created and seems to mix
the best of gothic-dark from the past re-visited into a modern key!
is another good song that mixes dark rock and modern psychedelic goth!
the things I care” is the less good track of the cd…the band (in my
opinion) doesn’t find a great groove and the melody of the song is
album is closed by “Sleep” that is another fair but forgettable
song…the band doesn’t find the right groove and tries to create an
atmosphere that doesn’t go up.
musical ideas are absolutely good, but the album is penalized by a not
good production. Anyway, if you like The Gathering, I’m sure
you’ll appreciate what this talented band is able to create.
