The excellent decision to re-edit this genius album is more than welcomed, especially since 20 years have passed since the band was founded, when Nick and Gregor, influenced by CELTIC FROST, MORBID ANGEL and CANDLEMASS, established this band. After the debut “Lost Paradise” that was insisting on Death Metal, with inspiration taken from J. Milton’s writings, the album that marked the appearance of a new musical current, the Gothic Doom Death, followed in 1991. “Gothic” is the most nonconformist Metal album for those times, when you couldn’t really say it was Death or Doom… Those were the times when two other bands were taking shape, ANATHEMA and MY DYING BRIDE. The advantage of this re-edited CD is that we have a bonus DVD containing some exclusive tracks shot live in 1991, plus the now classical tracks belonging to the first two albums. There is no doubt, something that one must keep for its private collection!
