Also on their third album "Lonely Way" [Soon] create an amazingly dense atmosphere. In return, the Hamburg quartet travels pop, rock and gothic regions. It contrasts rich, modern riffing with clever electronic color swabs and super-catchy melodies (even Depeche Mode shimmer through here). This approach is reminiscent of the Vast albums of genius John Crosby. It also brings into play references such as Paradise Lost, Muse or Placebo. Songs like "Time", "Trust", "Why" or the title track are dark-dynamic melancholy candies, which you couldn't expect from a German band so convincingly. Even if their debut "End Isolation" sounded a bit more original and fresh: With the potential shown here [SOON] will be able to expand its fan base from the gothic wave and alternative corner.
