How this awesome cd could recieve such a low rating is simply mind blowing... Maybe some reviewers aren't familiar with Goth music aside from the hollow pop music that the industry pushes as "goth". Maybe they aren't used to the "airy" underground Goth production. The programmed drums blow the usual monotonous kick/snare, kick/snare of most bands away. The guitar rifs are simple, yet very powerful. Very moving. Very heavy metal inspired. The vocals are emotional and fit the absolutely vampiric atmosphere perfectly... and the atmosphere!!! The spooky keyboards really steal the show. This is what Lestat's band should have sounded like in Queen of The Damned. REAL Gothic Rock. The use of synthesized choirs, harpsicords and organs and classical music inspiration still set them apart from the avarage Goth band. I can't understand why so many people knock this band, who were leaders of the Genre in the early 90's. Maybe it;s the melodrama. Yeah they're overblown and campy but that's part of the charm! It's melodrama in the style of Interview With The Vampire and The Crow. It's not cheesy, it's classy. So if you're a true Goth, you already know that this is a good band. If you're interested in Gothic music, check out Nosferatu. They're a really fun band.

This disc brought a change to Nosferatu's sound, unlike the earlier more guitar sounding discs this disc relies more on the keyboard side. The songs still come out great though, Into the Night is a perfect example and the first song you should listen to.

I admit that this album is corny, but it's also a lot of fun. As long as you don't take your music too seriously, you'll find something to enjoy in this album. It ain't Bauhaus; it ain't Sex Gang Children. There is no profound artistic statement here, except perhaps for an aesthetic one. Rather, Prince of Darkness reminds me of old horror movies. In fact, I listen to this album a lot around Halloween.

I recommend every Nosferatu album except for The Prophecy, an album that seems to divide fans.

Normally I'd give this 3 to 4 stars, but I need to rebuff these people who gave this one star. Furthermore, I'm emotionally biased. This came out about when I was sixteen and still discovering the Goth scene for myself. Looking back I used to feel ashamed for liking this - before getting myself fully immersed into the Goth Trinity, and moving on to more "sophisticated" mid-to-late 90's darkwave, etc. Now, though, I can look upon this with more clarity. By now, the technology is even more campy than it was even at the time, but like very early incarnations of Doktor Avalanche - somehow still good. The difference with The Sisters, of course, is that this is almost deliberately cheesetastic, and I am no longer ashamed of it! I can enjoy this for its nostalgic value, but if you don't have that experience, then just take it for what it is - pure camp. In a subculture know for its pretentiousness (myself included), this might be something to hide away with all the other CD's you'd never admit having. But, oh my goth is it ever a guilty pleasure! Besides, who does irony better than goths?

Okay, it's a bit cheesy, goofy and about as far from the angsty goth youre SUPPOSED to like. Ehh ... oh well, it's a fun campy album that I enjoy.
