Loud Rage Music
GOTHIC is a fantastic four piece straight forward gothic/heavy/death metal band from Romania.
This is their fourth album a very intensive, emotional 8 anthem work full of heavy melodies, exceptional melodic guitars, dynamic rhythm section and a crystal clear production and sound, excellent sound engineering with a balanced sound full of melodic riffs, right in the flow rhythm section, a dominating voice and absolutely brilliant work on keyboards.
This work can be enjoyed by gothic/doom metallers, fans of power metal and crazy extreme metal fans too!!!
The lyrics have to do with sadness, doom and gloom, demons and cloudy themes in general and fit right in the music I should say!!!
To get this album straight, it reminds me of a perfect mix between NIGHTFALL (“Lesbian Show” era) and PARADISE LOST (“Gothic” era). But there is a certain variety of emotions and sounds close to MACHINE HEAD, SLAYER, DARK VISION, DIMMU BORGIR, CLAWFINGER and many others fitting as a concept into the glory of the 90’s era!!!
In general it is a great album with a charismatic sound and multidimensional compositions. My personal favorite song from “Demons” is track number 8 “A New End” a beautiful anthem with fantastic catchy melodic intro, fantastic bridge and a chorus that sticks in the head!!!! Nice stuff!!!
