Crying Vessel - A Beautiful Curse/Illusions (Album review incl. interview)

,
This is an exciting review to write, I have been wanting to talk about “A Beautiful Curse” for a while now but I have been holding off in anticipation of Illusions coming out. I'm glad I waited because now I get to write my first two album combo review and I don't think I could have chosen a better band than Crying Vessel. Crying Vessel began as a project between Slade Templeton and Basil Oberli as an art concept that found legs and has grown into some of the finest post punk/Synthwave/dark dance fusion coming out of Europe and spreading it's dark wings across the world. It takes a lot of what is familiar and beautiful about classic dark music and infuses it with a jolt of electricity and sizzle.

Review: Lebanon Hanover - Let Them Be Alien

Ok, so this was a band I was pretty late to the game on. Another one that doesn't really need my review as they are pretty established and known as an important part of the dark minimalist movement. Yet I keep listening to the record so feel…
