Omnipresent throughout Ethernaut are lushly rich textures complemented by outstanding lyrics and vocals. Aside from the characteristically "trip-hop"/EBM electronic and highly danceable beats, Ethernaut is sprinkled with the gorgeous sounds of violins and guitars. Though this combination seems like it would clash caustically, the Cruxshadows pull it all together quite well into a most delectable treat for the receptive ear.
A lot of the creative talent found in this group stems from Rogue (how very fitting a name for a group such as this), the lead singer/songwriter. His vocals tend to straddle the line between spoken word and singing, and his vocals are backed by the amazing, soaring vocals of both Rachel and Stacey. The lyrics on this album, as tend to be distinctive throughout most of the Cruxshadows works, are the Egyptian/Roman mythology themes. For example, this album covers the battle of Troy. Rogue does an outstanding job of mixing emotional, heart-wrenching lyrics along with history and mythology into a rather enticing and accessible array of danceable, artistic music.
Though this group might not appeal to every fan of trip-hop, or industrial/gothic music because of the fact that they are a slightly different, they do have a lot to offer to those willing to listen.Read more ›
I have been a fan of The CrüxShadows for a few years now, and I find some of the songs on this album will haunt me until I listen to them one more time.
There are only 12 tracks listed on the cover, but there are actually 15 musical scores and four blank tracks- not 100% sure of the reason for this, but i have heard mention of 'hidden' tracks [not very well hidden]. Awesome tracks on this album are 'Waiting to Leave', 'Flames', 'Cassandra' and 'Nothing Left But Me'.
Another track entitled 'German Esoterica' is only 1:30 long [with an additional 30 seconds of silence at the beginning] is also a favorite, but it is way too short; reminds me a lot of the game 'Startopia'
There are some samples on [...]
Looking forward to the next album-
