Mirrors - Lights And Offerings

Mirrors - Lights And Offerings
(2011) Skint Records

This is a both retro and modern sounding electronic album with lots of analogue synthezisers. The album cover suggests it's going to sound like Kraftwerk, but I don't really think they do. Sure, you can hear the influences but I think the songs sounds more like an electronic version of post rock.

Ikon - Lifeless EP

Ikon - Lifeless EP (1999)

I love EP's! And this is Ikon's best EP, although they've made quite a few.
All exclusive tracks from Ikon's post "This Quiet Earth"-era. Don't forget to check out the "Reality Is Lost 1999" EP as well. This is probably my favourite part of Ikon's discography!

Ikon - In The Shadow Of The Angel

Ikon - In The Shadow Of The Angel
(1994) Apollyon

Ikon's debut album "In The Shadow Of The Angel" is one of my all time favourite goth albums. The list of awesome songs never seems to end; "Condemnation", "Lord Of Darkness", "Secrets Within", "Fall Apart", "Hallowed Ground", "Black Roses" and "Love Is Colder Than Death" are all classics in my book! This album is soon going to be re-released as a remaster with a bonus disc. I can't wait!

White Lies - Ritual

White Lies - Ritual (2011)

Maybe I should listen a bit more to this CD before deciding I like it a lot?
There's always a chance I will lose interest in a record. And I think, maybe, that there's a strong chance I will stop to like this CD soon. But for now it's perfect. Nice post-rock, alternative rock or whatever you will call it. Much better than their previous album!

VA - Dependence 2011

VA - Dependence 2011 (2011)

A taste of this years artist roster of Dependent records. The only thing this record's missing is some Mind.In.A.Box updates. Otherwise it has it all; A great new song from Encephalon, a new Stromkern song, some cool remixes and the excellent Urcerous Exit remix of Edge Of Dawn's "All The Time" previously only available as download. If I'm correct this record should be sold as mid-price, so there's really no excuse not picking this up!
