It’s taken us a while, but here we are at last: our first compilation ! The first of a series.

The purpose of vol. 1and its successors stems from a tradition established by compilations such as GOTHIC ROCK, HEX FILES, NEW ALTERNATIVES, L’APPEL DE LA MUSE (to name but a few); namely, to present a selection of the tremendous amount of talent and the breathtaking variety of the contemporary worldwide Gothic / Deathrock / Minimal / whathaveyou scene that exists and prospers underneath the usual media coverage of our days. Fantastic music that deserves to be heard on a MUCH wider scale.

The start of this hopeful series comes to you as a double-CD with 34 tracks by 34 bands at the price of a single CD.

34 Songs, many of which have been exclusively made to appear on this compialtion, or are previously unreleased anywhere, or ultra-rare; awesome Tracks by TRAGIC BLACK, , ALTERED STATES, CRETA, , , etc.

We hope you’ll enjoy them all… which, in fact, we expect you to!
