A unique sound by an independent duo,
This review is from: Crypt (Audio CD)
I am not a huge fan of synth-pop, but these guys have a hold on me for some reason; on The Crypt they have put out a series of catchy tunes, a pretty (and pretty strong) 41 minutes of music. Red Flag is somewhere between the existentialism of "Click Click" (a fairly obscure band these days) and the sappiness of Depeche Mode. I would recommend this music to fans of either of those two bands; clubbers who are into EBM might even enjoy the tame sound of The Crypt. What i appreciate most about Red Flag is their DIY (do it yourself) philosophy, which often entails eccentric packaging of the CD.
Let me clear one thing up right now: This CD can hardly be called "dark" music when one considers the dozens of truly dark electronically-based groups available to choose from (e.g., velvet acid christ, skinny puppy, hocico, wumpscut, cruxshadows, kevorkian death cycle, android lust, dismantled, xorcist, in strict confidence, cenobita, etc.)
