To describe this album is not an easy job for sure. You could go the easy way and just put it into the Gothic-category. VIRGIN BLACK do belong there, but still they are worlds apart from all the other acts I know. Gregorian chants are combined with electronic sounds, paired with doomy guitars, some Black Metallic shrieking just as well as these strange SAVIOUR MACHINE-like vocals.
You see, you won't get too far from what I write here. This band just is that original and for sure isn't very accessible, but for that they sound extremely interesting! Let's just say that VIRGIN BLACK play dark Avantgarde-Gothic, OK?
So who likes the slightly different and also accepts rather weird bands, should try to get this CD. It will be officially be out soon, I just don't know yet, when and where, so keep your eyes open!
