Volkmar - Overture Macabre
Now I know it’s extremely cliché that official band bios always convince people of listening to this “extremely awesome album” or something like that, but this bio still caught my attention with dark texts such as “Our music is the vessel across the river Styx. Let us be your guide and step into the 9 circles of Hell…enjoy the ride!!!” Well that definitely raised curiosity (whether positive or negative isn’t important here, yet). Well, I can definitely dig some dark-hearted music every now and then so off I went, across the river Styx…or not?!
 
Well, to be honest I don’t think I ever came across. I think I fell of the vessel and drowned. In sadness. And I still wonder what I have done wrong? Why oh why did I have to review this disc? Electronic wave goth metal these guys play. Well I’d say they play uninspired, extremely boring programmed crap.
 
There are only 5 songs on this demo and yet I have the feeling I’ve listened to it for hours! And no, that’s not a good sign! Not at all! Imagine a bad version of Satyricon meats Nine Inch Nails meets Type O Negative. And be sure not to be distracted by these great names! Now, if you would excuse me I go back to my bed to cry a little more. WHY OH WHY? WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG?!
 
Nope I’m sorry Volkmar, this music doesn’t turn me on at all! Not even for one second!
