商品説明

Originally released in 1999, then re-released by new label Projekt the following year, Moon Oppose Moon, the band's full debut, shows lead member Michael Laird and his range of collaborators -- some of whom left before the album first appeared -- dedicated to the possibilities of melancholy, elegant gloom. That Laird names such bands as Dead Can Dance and In Gowan Ring as his favorites isn't surprising upon giving Moon a listen, but his choice of groups like Sepultura and Weekend shows that there's a broader appreciation at play. Add in the wide range of influences the others in the band -- keyboardist Natalia Lincoln's love of numerous classical music composers, percussionist/singer Melody Henry's namechecking from Current 93 to Pablo Neruda and more -- and the sense of range attempted at is apparent. Certainly the band's own description of itself as exploring apocalyptic folk and synthetic gloom sums it up as well as anything. The vocal emphasis is generally on the trio of female singers -- most prominently Kit Messick, one of the members who departed after recording -- though Laird sings himself on about half the tracks, with a soft, gentle air. The combination of traditional music emphases and modern touches make the Dead Can Dance comparisons quite understandable, but there's a simpler, sparer approach on Moon than what band creates. Laird's delicate guitar playing and additional instruments help lead the songs, but the other performers, including the intriguingly-named Spider Grandmother on harp and Paul Ash on everything from hurdy-gurdy to plucked dulcimer, give the songs even more beauty and depth. Once or twice things sound a touch more goofy than haunting, such as the bass synth fills on Scourge, but generally Moon Oppose Moon is a striking first effort, well worth the investigating. ~ Ned Raggett, Rovi

Unto Ashes

The post-punk foursome Unto Ashes molds elements of folk and electronic for a healthy dose of darkwave mystery, and its Arabic hums are intricate and complex for a vivid imagery of wordplay. Sometimes Unto Ashes is compared to the likes of Depeche Mode, Dead Can Dance, or the Rachels, but the band does cast its own kind of gothic romance. They independently released their self-titled debut in 1997
