The Horror Vacui – Return of the Empire

Horror Vacui released their second full album, “Return of the Empire” in october 2014. It is a very good continuing of their debute “In Darkness You Will Feel Alright”, that came out 2012.

This album feels a bit more punk-rock / hardcore attitude, but still got a gothic rock style. The most of the songs goes very fast forward, “till the Last Drop” is kind of slower. They have succeded in to bring up the production and sound quality, but still kept their punkrock attitude.

As I said, this is a great second album and I think everyone who liked their first album should check this out. If you found Horror Vacui by this release, then check out their first album.
This is an album that also getting better and better each time I listen on it.

I like the most of the songs, can´t really tell what is my favorite but I think “Light of Darkness” is kind of outstanding and different from the other tracks on this album. Great album, recommend!

El Clan – Caronte

This album is awesome, I guess this can be one of my favorite albums this year.
El Clan is from Mexico and they are not newbie within the gothic scene. Their first album release were back in 1994 and in 2009 another album were reviewed by the Rolling Stone Magazine Mexico as one of the top 10 best in Latin America.

I have heard them before, actually played a song on our show Gothtune. What I felt speciall with the band is that they have some kind of unpredicted crazy genes inside their music.
The new album Caronte released in november 2014 has a great produced sound and very well preformed. They still got their style, unpredicted. It is kind of a blend between gothic rock and something progressive. You find a bit of everything, from Lacrimossa to Devil Doll and Fields of the Nephilim and Heroes del Silencio. And that describsion, include madness.

Some songs are written in spanish / latin and sometimes they sing in english. I do not pick any favorite songs from this album, I think everything sounds great. Enjoy!

Kalt – The Invisible

Kalt is a one- man project by Mike York from Germany, a former member of Garden of Delight. His album The Invisible is the third or forth? released november 2014. The sound of The Invisible give me very much vibes of Love Like Blood´s midtime in the 90´s.

It sounds very good, no bigger hits for the easy listeners. It is much influenses from gothic rock, but the drums have more like a metal sound, and that sounds awesome. Some of the guitars are also more heavier metal-sound, but mostley with a gothic rock theme, great riffs with melodies.

All songs on this album are namned with two sentence, and the first always start with a The, interesting. Some of my favorite songs: The Mother, The Sister, The Brother and The Zombies. And the track, The Life, more a ballad is also awesome.

This kind of albums and music, good produced as this album is rare today. If you are into the german era of the 90´s gothic rock with bands like Love Like Blood, Garden of Delight, Secret Discovery I think this is something you should check out.
