Beyond The Void - Gloom Is A Trip For Two

Maybe you’ll know Beyond The Void for their tour in the virtual world “Second Life” as the first Metal and Gothic band ever, but it’s also possible that you’ve – just like me – never heard of these six German guys before. The facts around this band are that the band was founded in 2000 and they’ve recently released their third effort, named Gloom Is A Trip For Two.

The first thing that caught my eye was their Spanish-titled single of this record. ‘Seductora’ is a “thank you” to their Latin American fans and contains a guest performance of the Mexican singer Isadora Cortina. This track has really got some hit-potential and is the best song on the record. The correlation between the beautiful voice of Isadore and the dark and low voice of Daniel Pharos works out really well.

The other eleven songs on this disc are not bad at all, but ‘Seductora’ is by far the best song and a logical choice for a single. The Dark Rock of these guys sometimes sounds a bit too commercial though. Their music is really accessible, but that also can be seen as the biggest negative point about it all. The production is good, the songs are well-written and well-played, but if you like a challenge in your music I should recommend to look further.
