Nowadays „Goth“ black outfits, but before the Internet were, meant „Goth“ something very special…
„Sunterra“ venture with its rebirth something new and when guitars sing heavy riffs, squeal to the synths and growls are accompanied with bouncing beats. The Austrian gothic Metal makes tape Music dominated by the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis and combined with Metal Scratching and mix to a regular dose of Industrial and Dubstep (!) in the compositions. yes friends, read correctly! Sounds weird, but this is what makes the six songs on „Reborn“ diversified. The band defined for the direction and mixes the ingredients newly, to showcase amazing rousing tracks.
With „Reborn“ ending a twelve year wait, then appeared „Graceful Tunes“ the last album of the already 1994 based gothic metallers. Then all was quiet, Austrian band was whole nine years on ice and was 2015 reactivated with a new line-up and musical change of course. With considerably more experimental sounds of the title of the EP could „Reborn“ not be more appropriate. Somehow reminds me of the Vienna „Crematory“, Although „Sunterra“ not on Clear- builds and Grwol chants male representatives and here Libuscha „Lilly“ Hruska and Karl „Carlos“ Heinz Krug duel. Also associations with „Lacuna Coil“ and „Theater of Tragedy“ are to be recognized, but it must be clear mention, that the Viennese band does not sound like a copy of these bands, but the independence is paramount. „Reborn“ marks the resurrection of the metal band and provides a fresh, new Opus is, to the 100% „Sunterra“ is, marked but a musical development of the band, to contact their own heritage with feet without. „Sunterra“ create their own, distinctive sound and thus show old and new fans, they are resurrected with a new freshness.
If you compare „Graceful Tunes“ With „Reborn“ you can see little in common. Only the vocals are reminiscent of former deeds. more always dominate powerful growls, go hand in hand with female clear vocals and distorted here and there to harsh screams. Here and there are on „Reborn“ given still interesting spoken word passages, and other games in the experimental sound somewhere between progressive metal and Hardstyle / Dubstep. Intricate riffs and varied song structures play with Groove bonds here and there and some Death Metal is sprinkled. the whole thing is garnished with neat Electro, that time in Hip Hop Beats, then pushes back into harsh industrial fields, only to deliver a bold hardstyle broadside next song, However, it creates an amazing way, abzuschmecken the abundance of variety with metal and let the whole thing sound good. If one is not accustomed to such experiments, you might have to take a little run-EP to listen to one or two times more. but after that it gets quite quick to celebrate the beats and sing the choruses.
With the opener „Reign Supreme“ still trying to build a bridge to the past. There are heroic pounding Gothic Metal with drum-thunder, sawing guitars, tiefkehligem male growls and enchanting female vocals around the ears. In progressive course of the panel but is removed completely from the Gothic corner and the metal gets an increasingly subordinate role. For this one turns increasingly to Electro to, that is well said in the Promo Sheet Metal term Step (!) be. The second song is completely been different, after an initial experimental follows a dark melody. This is powerfully „Shadow In The Dark“ initiated, up interesting sound constructs joined to, which merge into a sad piano game. Dark Gloomy sadness which is supported by Lilly Singing. „Lord Of Lies“ goes from right and is electronically distorted Gothic Metal with driving melody. Right brachial it is at „This Is W.A.R.“. increased speed, Derber Gothic Metal, They save-Drum, soulful sad piano passages and shot Electro. The song is much more experimental and has many bonds to crossover soundscapes and Progressive Metal. In „Ministry Of Thoughts“ meet Gothic Metal, gloomy Electro and Dubstep wavering elements successive. Sounds strange when reading, but sounds good and fits great for track. „Shut Up“ however, comes dark and bizarre from the boxes. The whole thing has aggressive death metal components, Riffing classic industrial sound and melodic lines as in Gothic Metal. With Scratches together, it is a peculiar, idiosyncratic and so far unheard variant metallic music. There are also a markedly experimental list and many sounds, we know from the Prog Metal.
Overall, the songs of musical contrasts and the music of are „Sunterra“ is full of variety, what the tracks but also places some „uneasily“ can act. I miss a little bit the „thread“ This EP, but who it loud, grumpy and varied like, will be well served with this album. Technically, there is not much to mosern and also has ideas formation. The electro vibes have to like, fit despite the estimated Sounds like chalk and cheese. The backbone of „Sunterra“ of course does not detract from the, you get varied, offer easily accessible and catchy gothic rock / metal songs with a variety of undertones. „Sunterra“ do it, break out prescribed genre corsets and create something very unique. Extremely varied, very changeable, yet absolutely authentic. In the center of the duet vocals by Lilly and Carlos is the motto: Beauty and the Beast. The coolest song on the disk is calculated of the most electronic: „Shut Up!!!“ is more or less carried forward in a duet with some radio play character. An interesting idea, which was also well implemented and the shekel significantly enhances. Overall, the EP comes good in the ear canals and makes the longer term humor. since one can hope only, that the Vienna henceforth be not only twelve years leave until the next release. „Reborn“ is from beginning to end exciting and at the same time refreshingly different. Welcome back!

Names have been over the last five years as Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston, Jack Huston, Mark Wahlberg and Luke Evans for Eric-draven-acted role in the long-planned The Crow Remake. And those were only the official candidate, while additionally rumors about Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy and Jack O'Connell circled. At the director frontage eh similarly turbulent. Steven Norrington took over the remake 2008, followed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and F. Javier Gutierrez. But the production studio Relativity Media can prevent neither the rain change before and behind the camera still from the company's own money worries, fully in the remake of „the crow“ hold. Now the film industry has a new candidate for the lead role targeted: Jason Momoa. For the handsome giant of „Game of Thrones“ and „Stargate: Atlantis“ it would not be the first remake nor his first comic role. The former he covered already with „Conan“ from, the latter for his role as Aquaman in „Batman in superman“ and soon in a separate Aquaman movie.
A few days ago Momoa published on Instagram a picture of himself and the upcoming The Crow director Corin Hardy and announced, that soon beckons him a dream job. The-Hallow-director Hardy has long been off on the project. Whether Momoa will really play the role, but I believe only, when the first door on the set falls. Currently reminds me the remake of the planned remake of „Highlander“, migrating in recent years also by director to director and actor to actor. If it does occur, I hope, that the remake is not so weak as Momoas „Conan“. reached after Brandon Lee's tragic death on the set „the crow“ to displace an almost mythical cult status among film buffs and Lee as Eric Draven from the collective memory, will not be easy. The also have a number of followers in the sequels and TV series failed. Officially, Relativity Media was not ready to submit its.
„The 69 Eyes“ ask for the song „Miss Pastis“ follow her Video before. The track comes from the most 22. April published album „Universal Monsters“. In addition, the band has more tour dates for November 2016 announced. They are three concerts with „The Mission“ play.

End of the 90 young people has yet been taken to howl together. Today this is gay, earlier it was the commitment to melodrama World Hate cocktail called puberty. In dreamlike MDR-review of DDR goths congregate Boy Leading, due to Robert Smith's birthday celebration.

the debut album „Love in Black“ Of „Child Of Caesar“ rotates with its low-tuned guitars and dark melodies time back there, As gothic Rock had its heyday. It may not quite believe it, that this band largely comes from Germany. The style is Goth Rock /Metal with elements of dark metal genre. Influences of bands like „Sister of Mercy“, „Tiamat“, „Paradise Lost“, but also German Goth Metal icons such as „Darkseed“ or „Scream Silence“ are undeniable. on „Love in Black“ accepts Daniel Mitchell the Vovals and lies rather in the alternative for the right Dark Sector, but fits. Anyone who has heard at the time the late 90s early 00s Gothic Metal / Rock, will have on this disc his joy.
the children Caesar listen to the name André Marcussen (Rhythm Guitar), Christopher F. Cashiers (bass & Lead Guitar) and Dino Cadavian (drums), for singing Daniel Mitchell shows the U.S.. Metal Band „Autumn Eyes“ responsible, not a bad grip, is here succeeded, because it fits well with the vocal genre – and yet is a bit strange. The gothic rock band comes across with a very gloomy passion and similar to their models the songwriting is designed dark and gloomy. On the one hand there are the texts, the act of dark themes - a great fascination with everything Morbid, Death or emptiness is not to deny. On the other hand, we have the implementation of these texts and moods in the Music. This means, in effect, many eerily beautiful melodies, sometimes very slow and supporting, then stressed again very strongly with bass and reef. The sad howling lead guitar sets the tone. Keyboard- Programming and also do not miss out and are eerie mood makers as needed. The harmonious backing vocals and choir inserts round out the songs often off nicely.
The sound effects, that play when you listen the opener Defector, might also be the trumpets of the Apocalypse be. Actually it concerns with the opening bars only to a beautiful, gloomy keyboard playing, that one should prepare for a wall full of punchy Gothic Rock. Consistent with organ sounds and the dark spherical Keyboards, the band plays exciting and uncompromising Gothic Metal. Even the voice of frontman Daniel Mitchell ensures shudder and with the gloomy, angry guitars, Stormy Drums, the mystical keyboards and punchy bass is the perfect Gothic Show. „Defector“ have „Child Of Caesar“ with much Love built to detail and yet a simple structure. Who believes now, if it were in the Gothic rockers to one of these endlessly copied clichÃ© Gothics, is mistaken. In a black scene, In the always again the same slurry is thousandfold nachgekocht and warmed, is finally a fresh breeze on a cloudy autumn day and shows, that there is another way!
The entry to „Red Sun“ carried melancholic harmony. First acoustically, the song turns quickly with mid-tempo drums and accelerates. That certain something to give here the simple, spherical Keyboards, the all even more magical, make depressing. Here Axe Man Christopher plays a brilliant guitar solo. The chorus is implemented fabulous and burns itself into memory. The mid-tempo track is certainly a punchy, geniales Gothic Metal Gewitter, that his energy fully deployed in a loud thunder and the bill is definitely on. Open the gates of the brilliant gothic metal „Child Of Caesar“ titled „Gates“. As before, there is here Song Kost midtempo with gloomy Keyboards, Guitars and basses, the punchier could not be. This may also be less more, is thus proved, because the refrain the electric piano definitely still put the finishing touches. Toward the end, there is also in this glorious Gruftiemetalhymne again the obligatory guitar solo, this time accompanied by piano. One thing is certain, „Child Of Caesar“ understand it, melodic, Write anthemic choruses to, often have the catchy.
„Nero“ is very melodic in his lead guitar. The rhythm guitars and bass lines, but kept relatively simple. Absolutely worth hearing, but is probably the song, because you skippt more times. Since the asset supported by piano music guitar solos does not really help. The keyboard game can be in the first few seconds of „Long Live The Night“ hairs stand on end. It sounds like the pure horror and the melody is simple eerily beautiful. This tune also constitutes the leading element in the chorus. Bass and guitar(n) are again starkbrüstig anxious direction directed. „Lost Sacrifice“ leaves the listener people think of a war movie, Marching drums, Sounds like an old radio ... you know what I mean, before the sound fully stereo and with full force since. The drum sounds initially remain the same, until it goes again with concentrated energetic Gothic Rock. Lyrically, this involves the hypocrisy of Christianity, or the church itself. A strong song, the again proves especially its strength in the chorus here. On Speed, is the music of „Child Of Caesar“ definitely not designed, though here and there, here are the double bass is used: The songs are almost entirely in the mid-tempo. But speed is something, was „Child Of Caesar“ also does not need. The band plays imaginative Goth and their singer moved with his voice the listener in its spell.
on „You“ there again melodic lead guitars, as they could not be more melancholy. The entire band mixes again the best at a quite Rockbaren song together. String sounds on return „At Heart“ back, the soft cling at the piano playing. This applies symphonic, magical loveliness of savagery and of course again as it should be this: beautiful bleak! Again, the whole thing is right again. The rocking 3-chord guitar riffs, but could be a bit more varied here. However, this is countered immediately, changes as the clock and once again resound best guitar solo must. as always, the rear part of the song, fast but after this short trip, back to the temperate, dark paths returns, before he silenced. The title track „Love in Black“ comes next in the series, and here comes the concentrated power of „Child Of Caesar“ out of the boxes and in the ears of the listener. The focus is on this song more on the anthemic vocals, and the musicians playing their instruments determined in its purity and so also scores „Love in Black“ fully. „Worlds Without Skies“ is the last track of the album and boasts a beautiful piano melodies, the beginning and in the middle, form a powerful element. The keyboards are arising with the guitars and punchy bass and the singer a Gesamtkunstwerk.
Child Of course Caesar not invent the wheel, but they do their thing on the debut album just really good and rock to dwell very earthy and dirty. Most of the songs is really catchy and will not be bored even after repeated listening. two, Although three less good songs are attending, but this one has mostly. Anyway, I'm surprised by „Love in Black“, the at times, where comparatively little good albums in the Gothic Metal area appear, a thick exclamation mark sets. Sure sometimes the riffs and arrangements are relatively simple and the melodic part, lies by „Child Of Caesar“ often in song, and in the keyboards and the occasional lead guitar in the band, yet provides all around darkly slow-spooktacular Goth Metal from Germany. Fans of the Sisters or Tiammat be sure to listen to the, because here you can hear clearly the style of the 90's out there and find something, was man ev. has beautiful long no longer belongs in this way. More of it, Anyway, I get pleasure, also once again to hear older disks…

„The Other“ do not apply without reason as one of the most popular bands of the horror-Punks in Europa. The mix of Punk, Horror and Goth is fans of hard Music Yes since the Misfits or Danzig in the ears. to mix punk music with sounds of other subgenres and with a (Horror-)To garnish Image is flat per se times not a bad recipe. The similarly acting competition is „The Other“ rarely high advance and yet you have to soberly notice: For the great career it was enough „The Other“ yet. After the last disc and the withdrawal of some band members, is still life in the old corpse. In a horror movie series in the sixth part is usually deflated or she would have to reinvent. But movies are no plates.
Fewer than three years have passed since the publication of the last „The Other“ Albums „The Devils You Know“ went into the country. a time, in which the cast carousel turned so violently, that the band for a while almost entirely of singer Rod Usher and drummer Dr. Caligari Bestand. But with Pat Laveau (Guitar), Ben Crowe (Guitar) and Aaron Torn (bass) one has found an adequate replacement and is even grown from quartet to quintet. In this line, the group released now with „Fear Itself“ their sixth album. But despite the occupation change the really big surprises in contained herein remain 14 Tracks from. You heard, Now that two guitarists are at the start, but otherwise are located „The Other“ remained faithful. The troops from NRW has now been 2002 road and despite constantly changing musicians, especially bassist, has not suffered their music.
The Cologne Horror punk band is an integral part of the German scene, but you should at „The Other“ do not take the word punk too literally, because the sound is stylistically more on Metal oriented. So on „Fear Itself“, that again by Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc., Tiamat, Moonspell) was produced, already on „The Devils You Know“ Directed by and for „New Blood“ (2010) the final sound mix designed. Reliance on the new album „The Other“ again on a broad base of different style elements. What the record company as in its letter Promo „traditional Metal Opener“ is designated „No more“. And exactly this song makes it clear, what difficulties „The Other“ will have the Durchschnittsfan well, Because this song is as primarily „German Punk“ to understand, has nothing to do with the rest of the album. Me personally disturbs the musical variety wealth not, Critics might keep this wide range of style elements but for a lack of orientation.
The record company sees, for example, elements of „Thin Lizzy“, „Iron Maiden“, but also „The Cult“ and „Danzig“. And then there's just been the punk and in my opinion a shot „The Visiom Bleak“, which is probably due to the orientation of the dark subject. All in all, not bad, but unusual and possibly somewhat unpredictable. Right after the intro blares the addressed „No more“ from the speakers, wherein for the first time venturing Cologne mind, to present the opener in German. Just after the „Unholy-Skirt“, she for the song „Eternity“ suffered their last record, This was a courageous step. „The Other“ provide here a veritable punk track, both the fans „Toten Hosen“ as well as the „Böhse Onkelz“ will celebrate. The rage of the 80s penetrates from the line, manifested in the riffs of the guitars and the furious beats of the drums. Big movies at the beginning.
Then begins the descent into the darker realms. „Bloodsucker“ is one of the most expressive songs. Inspired by 12 Claudia years of Anne Rice „Interview with a Vampire“ playing the track with the fact, that not immortality always is desirable. To remain always twelve? It is similar to the following „Black Sails Against A Midnight Sky“ and „Dreaming of the Devil“ to. At „Black Sails Against A Midnight Sky“ convince the guitar melodies, but I can not really abgewinnen something and the chorus like only moderately singing Usher. Perhaps the schema, after the pieces are written, a little too predictable, or lacked the very large, brilliant idea. The chorus to „Dreaming of the Devil“ ie it then „Dreaming, Dreaming of the Devil / You know it’s gonna be alright“, what seems somehow half-baked. In itself a nice up-tempo number, which will look good on the dance floor.
„Doll Island – Island of the Dolls“ I find rather interesting, because „Island of the Dolls“ is an island in the channels prior to Mexico City, on which – to match the name – hanging hundreds of mutilated toy dolls in the trees. The story behind these dolls, that they were hung on the island to drive away the ghost of a girl who drowned near the island. But back to the music, because this is well done on the sixth title. The song begins with a quiet Part, the most part of Bass and rare, slightly distorted guitars supported, while Usher, the story of the drowned girl with half geflüstertem singing initiates. Then the title goes to a classic Heavy Metal Part, followed by shallow, successful melodies. Hammer Komposition! When a horror punk band with the atrocities of World War II sets apart, takes a look at the current situation and together count one and one, then a song comes as „German Fear“ out. When groups such as the Pegida you look at, one recognizes, how terrible is currently the subject still. „German Angst“ is a leaden metal number, the right Bock makes.
The second half of the album is basically a balancing act between mediocrity and upper class, as well as between metal and punk. While also really good songs like „In The Dark“ and „Screams In The Black House“ With this, sounds „Funeral March“ something too flashy for the title, although the vocals from Usher you might think, that Iggy Pop and Billy Idol in the stanza with standing in the room. In „The Price You Pay“ there is one of the best „The Other“-to hear choruses of all time. The vocals sound great and instrumental one has varied melodies, changing rhythms and great ideas in store. At „rise“ then comes the punk again more to train and sprayed content and visually Horror- und b-movie-aesthetics. Completed the album is the dramaturgical „Mephisto“, a very big hit, the selected toll as Rausschmeisser, because he makes Bock, reinzuhorchen again. Full removed recalls the „Mephisto“-Riff an „Subway to Sally“, although not at their eponymous song. The chorus, to excel in its simplicity hardly, Rods gloomy, langgezogenes „Mephisto“ with the cold, almost metallic acting line „call my name“ becomes a suspenseful whole, that can live very well implement.
„Fear Itself“ is a great album, that hide in no way behind his predecessor has. Because after the last album half the band members are drawn away to new regions, It was clear, that „Fear Itself“ would sound different. Just by the second guitar sound now comes voluminous and therefore more pressure. This can be seen especially on songs like „Funeral March“, with its strong bass track, is fanned out beautifully by the two guitars. Thanks Pat Laveau and Ben Crowe to Sechssaitern and Aaron Torn on bass and the powerful blows of Doc Caligari start the bouncer Mephisto with incredible force, which would not have been possible before. Hopefully, the five guys for a while remain together, given that cooperation can yearn for future plates. The tape shows, there is nothing to fear except fear itself. They in any case go fearlessly their way and can not slow down even the departure of band members. A little fresh air seems to have the band on the contrary, even well done. A few small surprises would „Fear Itself“ possibly can still tolerate, But „The Other“ Stay true to yourself and thereby. The 80s Punk Rock- Rock-, Horror mix runs through the whole album. In addition to a well dosed dash of salt are found indeed a well or two hairs in the soup, but they are to get over – the bottom line makes the wheel fun, Rods voice is still beautiful to listen, recorded the tracks with a lot of verve and good atmosphere. Overall, there are many beautiful, small experiments, which enrich the album, without the thread to cut. Who „The Other“ additions already found good, is also „Fear Itself“ be satisfied. A recommendation is sufficient because of the entertainment value of the plate all! thumb
high the horror movie from more! „Fear Itself“ is gruftig, but not mieft!
