OF THE NIGHT:
Russian Gothic Compilation
Reviewed by: Darklight
CD contains a varied collection of gothic music from Russia. The bands
featured on this album include: Canonis, Caprice, Romowe Rikoito, No
Man's Land, Neutral, Dvar, Damsel's Dream, Phantom Bertha, Dreams, Cyclotimia,
Lunophobia, Djembe, Kratong, Moon Far Away, TNT Art and Cisfinitum.
I myself have never heard of any of these particular bands before. But
I must admit that they're all quite good. The overall music these bands
produce is dark, dramatic and orchestrated with a medievel celtic feel
to it. Some tracks feature male vocals while others feature female vocals.
Some lyrics are sung in English, while others are sung in Russian. Some
songs are ethereal darkwave, while others are more energetic with a
goth rock vibe. These bands do a great job of expressing different moods
within their music. There's a cold haunting beauty present in most of
the songs. Everything is dramatic and passionate with a lot of emotion
