Staff review by
Demonic Tutor
Nowadays Gothic is a term widely used in music. Somehow the term has been vulgarized along the years loosing its true identity within the diverse musical styles to which it is applied. Hopefully, a handful of bands revived the true meaning of Gothic and Virgin Black is one of them. Introduced to me by my beautiful wife and Gothic expert, Emalaith, Virgin Black is a smashing combo of musicians from Australia led by composers extraordinaire Rowan London and Samantha Escarbe . The other musicians are Dino Cello , Craig Edis and Ian Miller . Their debut album Sombre Romantic is as beautiful as it is disturbing, a Gothic masterpiece.
