ORIGINAL SIN - Nr. 24

THE CRACK OF DOOM - Sound of Ankh (CD) (MOS Records) German band The Crack Of Doom claim to have found a gap in the goth/dark wave scene and that gap is called symphonic-gothic rock. The truth is that I had the same in mind before reading the bio as I thought it was so bizarre to hear Pink Floyd-atmospheres and Black Sabbath-riffs in a musicstyle that oan be described as early Umbra Et Imagio or L'Ame Immortelle (for people who are not that specialized in the gothscene they are both quite big in this scene). The band can't be pressed into one dimensior. (so it's not another band who are ripping off The Sisters Of Mercy or The Banshees till you get bored of it) as they enrich their music with lots of different Instruments (it goes from military drums on 'The Stone Thing' to didgeridoos on opener Rose Dance). The band say their album is a collection of variable situations and experiences of human life with all its consequences that will be shown in a special manner. Well, they really do it in a special manner as at times this album sounds like a ritual at where both God and the devil are invited Darkwave-lovers (and lots of others) can easily fall in love with this dark piece of beauty...
