Interesting project... SISTERS OF MERCY and FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM but in a more Dark version, with a lower voice well delimited from the rest of the sound and typical guitars tunes for Gothic. Although it is the first album I am listening to(there are so far "Chapter One"-demo, "Seasons"-maxi CD and "The Now And Here Is Never"-debut), FLOODLAND captivated my attention right away even if what they perform brings nothing new to Gothic Rock scene. Maybe it is something new for the Austrian scene and this is, I believe, a step forward. The album's atmosphere is an stupendous one, keyboard gives life to an attractive background, the battery awards a listenable rhythm while the sober voice shapes the very specific characteristic of these four Austrians' music. The fact is that indeed this is a very interesting album which distinguishes from other Gothic Rock bands' mass but it simply didn't find its own identity. Perhaps, the next album, "Decay", which is supposed to be released soon...shall bring such on the Austrian scene. Who knows? Anyway, it is worth to try this sample of Dark Rock as you definitely shall not be sorry! There is a lot of time to listen to it...almost 70 minutes!
