A Brief History of Goth

Album Review: Sunterra – Reborn

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.

Sunterra - Reborn - 01 Reign Surpreme

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!

The Crow Remake: leading actor found? Jason Momoa announces surprise

The Crow Remake: leading actor found? Jason Momoa announces surprise

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.
