Lestat – Grave Desires

This tape is 36 minutes long, and it is from Jevan Records, which probably is a defunct label which was out of Parma Heights Ohio. This is electronic gothic music, which mixes depressed Depeche Mode with some Cure, and it also has Female and Male vocals. Lestat uses old clips between songs, which is a good, albeit overused median between songs. These guys have slow Cure like guitars, with samplers about and minimalist drumming, as the sampler does at lot of the drum beats. This is incredibly well crafted songs, with a haunting feeling. The only bad thing about this tape is that the band sometimes uses too much synth, but the problem is fixed by the excellent song writing.
Rating:8.5/10
