tristaniaashes.jpgBandname: Tristania 
Genre: Gothic
Release Date: 24 January 2005
Record Company / Label: SPV /Steamhammer






These are turbulent times in the gothmetal scène; it’s over populated and one band does things even bigger and more bombastic than the other. Tristiania is, to me, one of the bands which have been around for a while and doesn’t get caught in this madness.

Rorschach.jpgBandname: Rorschach
Genre: (Industrial) Metal
Release Date: Autumn  2004
Record Company / Label: Self-Financed






Rorschach. I bet no-one has ever heard of these 4 Dutch contestants to the Rammstein throne. The biography (or “Autopsy Report” as the A4 tells me) doesn’t give much away about the history of the band besides the fact that they met in 1892 at a gig organized by Jack the Ripper. Followed by a long lasting stay at mental institutions and the endurance of all kind of tests, after which they disappeared from the public eye until now. Though it doesn’t say in the bio or on the cover, I can give away that this band exists of experienced musicians.

NFD001.jpgBandname: NFD (Noise for Destruction)
Genre: Gothic Rock
Release Date: November 2004
Record Company / Label: Jungle Records






Though founded in 2003 this is not a band of starting musicians. Actually this gothic rock band contains some musicians that defined the genre when it still was gothic rock. Playing with bands like Sensorium, The Nefilim, and even the masters of goth, Fields of the Nephilim, makes this band a powerhouse in the genre to be reckoned with. Their debut release came almost 2 years ago in the form of a 3 track EP, called “Breaking the Silence”, which sounded very promising. But with an impressive background comes high expectations. Will NFD fulfill the promise and break the silence that has been keeping all those fans of Fields of the Nephilim eagerly awaiting the new still-pending Fields of the Nephilim album? A big task, if you ask me.

Genre: Metal
Release Date: -
Record Company / Label: -





I was very curious about the demo from the French underground band FATHER. I met the guy from the band during the Epica concert in Paris, but I am sure that this is rougher metal than our Dutch gothmetal band will ever be. The demo looks very good, they even made a videoclip. Well let’s start by the beginning.
