Staff review by
ASP can be concidered as a new name in the gothic scene, they have been around with discography since the very birth of the 00s yet they managed to become a really well-known act in the scene, they deserved it and with their compositions they earned a strong cult status among their fans.

2006 arrives and Asp and his companions in this gothic musical complex named ASP return with the ultimate offering for an ASP fan, "Werben"! It's limited to 999 compies all over the world and is filled with many interesting stuff, so those who are interested should move fast to the nearest dark music store and worship this oh so special release! People that don't know the band will probably ask "what are they playing?" and a possible answer could be "they are playing gothic rock" as i read around. Well, to tell the truth, to define ASP as just a gothic rock band it's not so fair simply because ASP has a very affected and multi-influenced sound, they have many elements that seperate them from other bands, something really positive in an era when copy bands are everywhere. Apart from the intense gothic rock elements their guitars tend to sound more metallic and heavier at times, a folk-driven approach at times with the violin, the guitar chords etc is present here and there and electronic elements never fail to make the overall aesthetic of the band more modern and danceable! Compositions like "Werben" that harmonize all these elements are definitely enormous!
