review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
have the pleasure to present you this band that will be the Him-support
in the next Valo’s band tour !!! This cd is a
fair Dark-Rock work, that is not supported by an excellent
production…It’s a shame because I notice some good ideas that
even if they
‘re not very original, on the whole are supported by good
band reminds me of other German Dark-Wave bands…Sometimes I notice
Wolfsheim influences, but also De/Vision and, why not?....OOMPH!
!!They remind me of Oomph!, in particular listening to “Schreit
dein Herz” that is sung in the mother tongue.
sadness and the melancholy are the elements of these songs, but in
my opinion not all songs are up to the task, and moreover I
underline that the production such as the arrangements are not at
are valid ideas concerning the loops and the keyboard effects, but
both the production and sometimes the melodic ideas don’t give a
very good value to this cd!...Guitars gets a mediocre sound and the
mixing work doesn’t bring to the light the good work of the
good atmosphere is the mark of “Schreit
dein Herz” one of the best song, such as “Wonderland”,
both supported by a very good melody!
sound is not made with electronic drums, and the electronic parts
are only made by keyboard!
low voice of
Sven Friedrich is very similar to the other dark rock singers,
but not for this reason it is a bad voice, on the contrary: he
‘s able to sing in a good way; low tones and a very sad
interpretation! But sometimes it’s impossible not to think that
the band tries to imitate famous bands that in Germany have created
a Depeche Mode cover!!! “In your room”. It’s rearranged
in a good way, in coherence with their style! “Stop Pretending”
is not very far from Him melodies, but the song is absolutely
mediocre!A good dark song is “Light your Stars” that is
not very far from something listened from the latest Darkseed and
Crematory albums...of course only concerning the melody, not the
of the best song in my opinion is “ United and Lost” that
gets a good pop-wave melody that reminds me of 80’s!!!
good sad song is the last track “Wenn
du gehst” that is full of melancholy and darkness!!!!
the whole I think that there are good ideas…but I hope to listen a
better next album.
