As those who know me, know I have a passion for all things Gothic as well as my Rock roots, so I love it when a good Goth band comes my way, and these guys are just phenomenal, They are the true form of what goth is and should be about with hints of industrial rock and a twist of punkish pop there’s no end to there talent. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically supreme and the music is well as it should be pure goth at its best.
