Cold Fusion's debut compilation release, featuring new and established Gothic bands that are among the best in the scene. Genres include Goth Rock, darkwave, doom, and dark ambient. This is the first CD in a trilogy, which is soon to be followed by "Lunar Eclipse" and "Full Moon Rising".
The CD starts with Jimmy Brown's post-Deliverance band Fearful Symmetry made of Bowie-flavored vocals over darkwave. South Africa's Goth Rock master The Awakening appears with the moving track "Martyr". The Last Dance follows with "whisper", an excellent progressive song from the electro Goth rock legends. The new band Creta makes serious waves with their debut electronic Goth song "Silence". Tara Vanflower of Lycia appears with surreal dark ambient material, courtesy of Projekt Records. Saviour Machine closes of the album nicely with dark-operatic vocals over down tempo Goth in "The End of the Age".
The additional 8 tracks something to sink your teeth into as well, making the compilation perfect for anyone even remotely interested in the scene. Make sure to listen to the sound samples to find out for yourself.
"All these bands succeed to keep all the typical ingredients: the gloomy spirit, the deep bass and the so specific rhythm to mix it with the current technology and so to have a modern and forward-looking sound. Add to these positive aspects, the decent quality of the sound and you have enough good arguments to discover this compilation." (CX of Side-Line Magazine)
"the compilation does exactly what it's supposed to do, both for those looking for new artists and artists looking for new fans." (Chad The Edge On-Line)
