"How this awesome cd could recieve such a low rating is simply mind blowing... Maybe some reviewers aren't familiar with Goth music aside from the hollow pop music that the industry pushes as "goth". Maybe they aren't used to the "airy" underground Goth production. The programmed drums blow the usual monotonous kick/snare, kick/snare of most bands away. The guitar rifs are simple, yet very powerful. Very moving. Very heavy metal inspired. The vocals are emotional and fit the absolutely vampiric atmosphere perfectly... and the atmosphere!!! The spooky keyboards really steal the show. This is what Lestat's band should have sounded like in Queen of The Damned. REAL Gothic Rock. The use of synthesized choirs, harpsicords and organs and classical music inspiration still set them apart from the avarage Goth band. I can't understand why so many people knock this band, who were leaders of the Genre in the early 90's. Maybe it;s the melodrama. Yeah they're overblown and campy but that's part of the charm! It's melodrama in the style of Interview With The Vampire and The Crow. It's not cheesy, it's classy. So if you're a true Goth, you already know that this is a good band. If you're interested in Gothic music, check out Nosferatu. They're a really fun band."
