Re: Metal thread IX: Metal To The Pedal To The Other Metal
Yeah, it's a pretty exceptional album! For the more instrumental themes, bits of His Name Is Alive's "Livonia" or Dead Can Dance's "Within the Realm of a Dying Sun" come to mind. For the pop-ier songs, Drab Majesty's "The Demonstration" will sound very familiar! Maybe some Cocteau Twins. Basically, half of 4AD's releases in the 80s, and half of Dias Records' releases these days! But, again, that's a tough album to match, even among Xymox releases.
