"Already a sixth album for GosT, which continues to explore the borders between goth and synthetic with brio and a demonic aplomb."

Limiting GosT to synthwave would be like saying that Trent Reznor does indus. The parallel between the two artists seems obvious when listening to the synthetic and suffocating atmosphere emitted from 'Bound By The Horror'. Introduced by a 'Bell, Book And Candle' laying the foundations of the concept, the album is then revealed as an ancient grimoire filled with incantations calling the listener to surrender to the dark designs of James Lollar, the damned soul of GosT.

Witchcraft and electronic music have never merged so well, united in the same boiling cauldron where the rhythms pound the eardrums ('A Fleeting Whisper', 'Blessed Be') before hypnotizing the listener with distortion and dirty arpeggios ('We Are The Crypt', 'Embrace The Blade'). The influence of artists such as Depeche Mode or Human League is undeniable but it is the cinematographic aspect that intrigues, between homage to the work of John Carpenter, coldness of "Terminator" or cynicism of "RoboCop", the whole coupled with the darkness of "The Crow".

Spells and melodies follow one another, calling for the night and painting the sounds that escape from the headphones with black. Coven' mixes the instruments to lose the listener in a hypnotic and nightmarish maelstrom then 'Burning Thyme' comes to close the last page of the book of the bewitchments to the sound of anvils which strike and still refrapp the certainties until shaping them in something else, until the ghost reigns, until the demon fulfilled its office.

And that the record starts again, as by magic.

NOBODY'S STRAIGHT: Transition (2021)
HARDCORE - Nobody's Straight confirms with "Transition" a certain talent for a powerful hardcore with strong lyrics.
ISILDURS BANE & PETER HAMMILL: In Disequilibrium (2021)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - "In Disequilibrium" allows Isildurs Bane and Peter Hammill to bring out the best of themselves in a perfectly successful fusion, evoking the so particular universes proper to each one without that one prevails on the other.
