If you are somehow missing the classic Gothic Rock of the 80s and 90s, I guess this new band from the United Kingdom is totally for you. It is not only their great music included on their debut Mini CD "The Monster In Me", it is their general attitude that re presents Gothic Rock the way it was the classic, good old days. Here is the band's statement from their website:
Formed in 2011 in the UK, Angels of Liberty are a brand new UK Gothic Rock band. Our aim is to create Gothic Rock for the elite few left who are still proud to call themselves Goths, those who, with their passion and will, tend to the Black Flame. So, More than a little fashionably late, showing clear signs of erotic crystalization inertia and with moth eaten frock coats, here we are.
The first few drops from our blood stained chalice have just become available from Secret Sin Records in the form of the 'Monster In Me' EP. Less of a Band more of a Serpent Cult, we have our sights on creating an alchemy between us and fans of Gothic Rock on a small and personal scale for the purpose of re-creating some of the magic we felt so long ago.
While the bloodlines tighten their grip in a bid for control of the New Dawn, Angels of Liberty have laid out their agenda in their zine 'The Hidden Hand". Perhaps after listening you will join us as a co-conspirator and help us raise up this Empire of Decay and birth a new generation of Goths to be baptised in the blood of the old sound?
This video showcases the songs on the Angels of Liberty fan tape. The tapes are all gone with all numbered and signed copies now reserved for goths whove become fans and helped spread the word. The tape unleashes five gothic rock tracks on a signed numbered tape. The tape itself is a plastic tamper proof cassette where the label is parchment inside the cassette itself. The inlay card is also parchment and signed by the band. They will go out to an elite few Goths who have made all the effort worth while. They will receive the tape along with the forthcoming realease on CD along with a wax sealed parchment scroll and other goodies.
Except for the music the band is working on some other interesting project, for example they are preparing their own Fanzine entitled The Hidden Hand. There is also a very interesting booklet produced by the band that feature lyrics of the Mini CD plus some more art. You can visit their website and grab all the latest information about the band. I guess that everyone seriously involved into Gothic Rock music should pay attention to this new band on their first steps, I am sure that they are going to make their own very special saga into the pantheon of Gothic rock music and that we shall hear many more by them in the future.
The band is already answering their first interview for AD.
