TOB! ET !GNI
As the romans once said "Ut salutas, ita salutaberis", thus i will tolerate you as long, as you can stand my character. What can say about me? Welp, i am a pretentious dumb dumb with an open-minded worldview. Surprisingly obsessed with different forms of art - simultaneously sophisticated gamer, goth, velvet punk, at times guilty pleasure appreciator (yeah, i like Night Club, Priest and Skold).

When it comes to music i tend to stick to the art of Dionysian principles. Melancholy and non-conformism are part of my second identity, but overall i think i prefer mostly alternative forms of music, even it's underground samples. Don't believe in any cults, idols or genre constraints, though, obviously, i dig all things goth too much.

Audio quality-wise i'd say, that i am pretty interested in all of these audiophile nuances, but with healthy dose of skepticism. Usually prefer how vinyl sounds (especially if it's 12'' or properly adapted from an analogue source), also love the aesthetics surrounding it, however consider it primarily a snake oil - just a capitalistic trick to force you pay more, it's not necessarily a bad thing, because if you adore not well-khown musicians you might want to perpetuate their work with this form of ritual. Besides, i simply don't trust CDs due to their infamous compression (yeah, even think this way nowadays), and, since you can obtain CD-Quality digitally any time, what's the point in it really? So i constantly range my music from vinyl, to CDs, Hi-Res or any other digital types.

I believe in indie stuff much more, so i also try to find niche artists which are appealing to me, meaning that my tastes won't be your seal of approval every time. That's no good, nor it is bad, depending on how close-minded you are to my gun. Either way, feel free to evade me.

The Sound (2)

A.k.a. the most underrated band ever - in some sense rightly so. The magic of "The Sound" lies within the dichotomy of gallows and disco, simplicity and sincerity, progressiveness and measure, melancholy and joy coming from Adrian Borland - one of the... See full review

Solid synth-pop, incorporating gothic romantics, club underground, erotism, some uncharted territories, while being their own thing, which i'd call "fetishwave". In spite of BDSM clothes on the band's members, there's nothing vulgar or disgusting... See full review

Composed some of the best scores for videogames. Many salute him for Deus Ex OSTs, but i think his soundtrack for Splinter Cell: Double Agent is iconic mix of blues, alternative rock, trip-hop, and Hollywood-esque techno.

Let me get this straight - Valleyheart is a competently crafted piece of music, moreover it's not awful by any means (sound-wise at least). But, sadly, it's an obvious 360 degree turn from the previous works the band was so valuable for! The following... See full review

There is some value to be had in this Promo CD for anyone who is not indifferent in regards to industrial and punk. First of all, it's the only Skold's release with the "All Dies" song which is a very essential piece of controversial art by itself.... See full review

A traditional punk album with an industrial cherry on top. I mean... it's mostly a guilty pleasure, especially if you compare them with the old albums by Skold and some of the newer ones which are mostly good. If you are sophisticated it will seem to... See full review

What can i say?! It's amazing to see Keluar's clone. I hope this band will evolve past that in the nearest future, otherwise it's already a very solid coldwave, though their sound doesn't do wonders at the moment.
