band has also studio collaborated with members from bands like Scar
Symmetry, To/Die/For, Mandragora Scream etc. The new album “Grave
Party” will feature Skinny Disco from the Swedish band
new era of Gothic & Modern Metal is here!
is what I expected from SadDolls! This album came after 2 years from the
good "Happy Deathday"…
couple of songs from that album made me think that this was not the
classic Gothic Lovemetal band Finnish style, they were searching for
something more, and now I have the proof that I was right!
& C. elaborated a certain kind of sound that seems to blend the
sound of Deathstars, Gothminister, and early Him, (may be the old fans
remember songs like “Dark Secret Love” or “Borrellus”)…In this
album I can hear the essence and the approach of that style, but
SadDolls modernized it in a very great way!
I cannot say that this a masterpiece but in my personal opinion, they
have improved a lot comparing to the first album…
So let’s start talking about the songs…
The single “Lady Cry” (the band recorded also a great video of this
- Lady Cry)
can be considered a good example to describe the sound of the band, but
in my personal opinion it isn’t absolutely the best song….the next
one “Terminate Me” is too much catchy for me; An amazing intro
introduces the charming electro gothic atmosphere based on a very
involving refrain ;
“Bleed Sister Bleed” is another “shot in the deep darkness” some
Finnish gothic shadows that could remind of the best 69 eyes seems to
join Scream Silence (German Gothic band) , and it’s in!
“Dancing Shadow” is pure electro-gothic industrial; another great
refrain goes along with a great arrangement and George can alternate
some rough and clean vocals! A very good job!
“Suicide Girl” seems the classic decaying gothic song written for
passionate gothic girls…a very great song;
The structure and the chorus are just a perfect recipe of gothic and
“The Last Valentine” represents the best connection with their
recent past…even if the song gets many electro gothic elements; it is
fundamentally a modern gothic metal song!
“Creeping Skies” is exactly the best example of what could be Early
Him in this era! This song takes inspiration from that style but it
shows an amazing modern approach under all points of view…
“Angels Making Love” is pure gothic style that seems to mix Type O
Negative shadows with 69 Eyes…a great interpretation made by George
emphasizes the good arrangement.
“Sexy and Undead” is modern gothic mixed to a sort of “essential
claustrophobic refrain is very involving and the band seems to have
found the recipe to make great arrangements….
“You Make Me Feel Like Nothing” seems to be a mixture among goth
n’roll…industrial, and electro dark into a very heavy dark timing
“On The Road 66” is a dark electro ballad…even this may be a
“forced” definition for a song like this…Majestic and charming but
also deeply gothic...
“Thirteen” closes this album; It’s another gothic song with some
electro elements ; it doesn’t get (for me) the same captivating mood
that I explained for the other songs.
What can I say more? This album is great…and I can’t but compliment
with George & C, the new era of Gothic & Modern Metal is here!
