Pressburger Gothic Journal

Various – Strobelights vol. 1
(Strobelight Records)

Selection with a promising number 1 (I cannot wait for the follow-up already) brings for the fans quite a number of partly forgotten pearls from cult bands. The older ones will be remembering and the today´s generation will discover varietion of gothic rock in its full width. Bands from all over the world, like the american VooDoo Church and Shadow Project, english legends Death Cult and Ausgang, french Norma Loy and Lucie Cries, the representation of a german scene Cancer Barrack or Dronning Maud Land are marking the quality of this excellent selection. I felt, like the old times when I used to listen to Mercer´s compilation „Gothic Rock“. Well, this is another good hit by the Strobelight Records.
