Description

Gothic/Doom

Very slow and mournful Gothic/symphonic/doom, with lots of darkwave elements mixed in.

Or as the band themselves describe it: "An anomalous harmony between the juxtapositions of purity and humanity’s darkness."

Elegant...And Dying (2003)

Misc

'Trance' was re-released as a bonus disk to 'Sombre Romantic'.

The band was inactive/disbanded for several years before returning to the music scene. Rumor has it they were trying to wait out their record contract with The End Records
