Brotherhood - ...Turn The Gold To Chrome...

Brotherhood - ...Turn The Gold To Chrome...
(2012) Not On Label

This is an excellent gloomy gothic rock record. A bit hard to find, nowadays, but well worth it if you happen to see it somewhere. I really like the, almost doom metal-ish, atmosphere of this album. I don't know why I think of doom metal? It's certainly not a metal album. The album's full of drum machines and cheesey electronics, just as you would expect from a goth record! A great companion while reading by the fireplace. The band used to have a song or two on their Bandcamp site, I don't know if it's still the case?

Dead When I Found Her - All The Way Down

Dead When I Found Her - All The Way Down 2CD
(2015) Artoffact

I belive the 2CD version of this excellent album has already sold out. Fortunately there's always Bandcamp! The second CD is called "The Bottom" and is yours for just $6 (+ tax, if you live in Europe).
I've been a fan of Dead When I Found Her from the early beginning, but this time Michael A Holloway has really outdone himself. The album is well put together, it feels almost like a movie score. Buy before you try!!!

Hearts Of Black Science - Signal

Hearts Of Black Science - Signal 2CD
(2015) Progress

I generally don't like Heart Of Black Science's music, but there's something about this record. The mood, the beauty of it... I really don't know. Everything's not great, though. For starters, you don't need to hunt down the limited 2CD edition. The bonus tracks are uninspired and boring, absolutely not worth it! Try before you buy!

God's Own Medicine - Nowhere

God's Own Medicine - Nowhere
(2010) Eden Records

Part electronic, part gothic rock this Polish band are always interesting to listen to. Check them out on Bandcamp. "Nowhere" is my current favourite album of theirs, but I'm sure this will change with time.
