So when you pose with a metal looking guitar on the tape cover, one would come to expect a metal album with some shredder guitar. But the then the music starts playing, and it is slower, somber, distant sounding music. Is this gothic music? The pace doesn’t pick up until half way through the second track, and there is a lot of guitar soloing on here… but still a definite melancholy sound that is distinctly goth. Some tracks like “Killing of a King” are not really that gothic, but then “J.E.S.U.S.” is very gothic. Interesting. (not my review)
