Negative Format - Gradients

Negative Format - Gradients
(2008) Metropolis

Consider this a follow up, of sorts, to last weeks excellent Parallel Project release. Parallel Project was a project by trance/techno/EBM artist Alex Matheu, with different singers on each song. Negative Format is his main project, and it's usually much more trance sounding. This album has some guest vocals by DJ Devi as well as really good songs. If you liked the Parallel Project CD this should be your next buy!

Parallel Project is, of course, a project. Negative Format main man
Alex Matheu has gathered a couple of singers and together they've recorded a really good future pop album. The best songs are "Explicit" featuring Tom Shear and "Motive" featuring DJ Devi. Both of these songs are also featured on the "Explicit" single, but there's a lot of other great songs on this album that is not to be missed. Check it out!

Gary Marx - Nineteen Ninety Five And Nowhere

Gary Marx - Nineteen Ninety Five And Nowhere (2007)

I've listened to post-goth this week as well. If you don't know who Gary Marx is then here's a question for you: Have you noticed the change in sound between Sisters Of Mercy's debute album "First And Last And Always" and the follow up "Floodland"? Yes, that's right - where are the guitars? Ok, I know the whole band exept for Andrew Eldrich left, but the only one that mattered to me was Gary Marx. This album consists of songs for a possible 1995 reuninion of Sisters Of Mercy that never happened. Great stuff!

Miserylab - Lab Samples

Miserylab - Lab Samples
(2009) Shadowplay

I'm eagerly awaiting the next Miserylab compilation album, but this russian 2009 sampler will have to do for now. Miserylab is Porl King's (ex. Rosetta Stone singer/guitarist) main gothic rock project.
Miserylab is constantly getting better and better, so I really think this is a band worth checking out.
