13 Candles/Come Out Of The Dark/Nightbreed Recordings/1995 CD Review

13 Candles where a band from England that played a very dark form of gothic rock/darkwave and this is a review of their 1995 album "Come Out Of The Dark" which was released by Nightbreed Records.

Drum programming is mostly slow to midpaced beats that get real fast at times with some real drums being used at times as well as an industrial feel, while the keyboards are very atmospheric and gothic sounding with an ambient edge being employed at times, as for the bass playing it has a very strong sound with some really dark gothic rock sounding riffs.

Rhythm guitars whenne mplyed are very heavy sounding gothic rock riffs that have a heavy metal edge to them, while the lead guitars are very dpressing death rock style guitar leads with some distortion effects being used at times.

Vocals are mostly clean singing gothic rock vocals that have a bit of agression to them, while the lyrics cover dying, depression, love and other dark themes, as for the production on this recording which was recorded at Bandwagon Studios in Mansfield , England has a very dark and somewhat professional sound to it.

In my opinion 13 Candles are a very good dark gothic rock/darkwave band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECEMMONDED TRAC KS INCLUDE "Disblievers" "What Is Dath" "the Hunted" and "Come Out Of The Dark". RECEMMONDED BUY
