Diary of Dreams - Hell in Eden

2017-09-22 (News)

Musically, "Hell in Eden" is as energetic and monumental as no other album has ever been before, but at the same time, it is also warm, dark and fragile. It touches you from the very first note and builds up a fantasy world in your head, tempting you to lose yourself completely in its magic. Adrian Hates has come up with another masterpiece: 13 incredibly intense and emotional hymns in a wide variety of moods and colors come together to make up a very special conceptual work. Adrian himself already lists "Hell in Eden" amongst his favorite albums.

Your Life On Hold - Burning For The Ancient Connection

2017-09-18 (News)

Your Life On Hold album "Burning For The Ancient Connection" is a gothic rock sound that seems like natural and fitting to express the melancholic and gloomy narrative. Dreamy and atmospheric guitars inject brightness and colours into the dark compositions, while a tight and solid rock sound sometimes turns the melancholy into an angry harder wall of sound. Therefore we like to call it ‘post goth’, because of the rich array of influences and textures, bringing the classic gothic rock sound to a new level.

Soror Dolorosa - Apollo

2017-09-14 (News)

Here comes new album by the already legendary act, Paris-based Soror Dolorosa. The band creates raw and hungry gothic rock inspired by post-punk, death rock and cold wave. Soror Dolorosa four years in the making, "Apollo" is now crowning the achievement; a bombastic dystopian world view encapsulated in dark popcraft. Melodic and memorable, the album shines a light on both stunning beauty and haunting sadness with Julia's foreboding, prophet of doom baritone soaring on down a long and lonesome highway full of baroque, exquisite anguish.
