2 - CLAN OF XYMOX - DAYS OF BLACK - (CD) 
TRISOL


Dark days call for dark music. It doesnt bear thinking, then, about what we would do without people like Ronny Moorings. People who have been the very soul of a scene for many years, who roam the earth with open eyes and ears and who clad everything out there that is distressing, unsettling anddeeply worrisome into dark and therefore salubrious music. With his band CLAN OF XYMOX, Dutch icon Moorings is doing exactly that since 1984. This, in 2017, is more welcome, more important and more wholesome than ever before. Needless to say, a figure like Ronny Moorings is nobodys fool. Needless to say, nobody has to explain to one of the most influential, most important and most popular Dark Wave bands ever to emerge from the eighties how to evoke atmosphere. Still, to return with an opus like "Days of Black" after 33 years in business, after countless albums, EPs, singles and immortal tours around theglobe is nothing less than an outcry. This record unites monotonous rigour with floating lightness, marries juvenile "Sturm und Drang" with the expertise of the experienced artist. Thus, before the opening track with its vigorous drums, its shimmering Post Punk guitars and its menacing synth foundation is over the verdict is here: Yet again, CLAN OF XYMOX have reached a new, perhaps even their highest peak.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Days Of Black 02. Loneliness 03. Vixen In Disguise 04. Leave Me Be 05. The Rain Will Wash Away 06. Set You Free 07. I Couldnt Save You 08. What Goes Around 09. I Need To Be Alone 10. Loud And Clear 11. Your Kiss 12. La La Land

3 - CLAN OF XYMOX - IN LOVE WE TRUST - (CD) 
METROPOLIS


Clan of Xymox 2009 album, was released both on Trisol and Metropolis at the same time. The European version is unavailable since October 2012. Elegiacally beautiful, melancholically powerful, emotionally stirring. Shimmering goth rock guitars meet modern electronic sounds; pulsating walls of sound meet no-nonsense rhythms crowned with dark vocals which are variously heart-rending, full of hymnal yearning and powerful. Classic olden days darkwave combines with the electronically-orientated modern era!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Emily 02. Hail Mary 03. Desdemona 04. Judas 05. In Love We Trust 06. Sea Of Doubt 07. Morning Glow 08. Home Sweet Home 09. Love Got Lost 10. On A Mission

4 - CLAN OF XYMOX - SPIDER ON THE WALL - (CD) 
TRISOL


Since day one, Ronny Moorings transferred the mood of the era into his music. He did so 35 years ago when he ignited the hearts of the uprising goth movement with his fabled debut "Clan of Xymox". And he did so in 2017 when he released "Days of Black", his very own requiem to a dying world. 2020 sees Moorings return with yet another manifesto of melancholy. And even if this catastrophic year is good for nothing else, at least it gave us this masterpiece. "Spider on the Wall", that much is certain already, is the most important goth release of the year. And ultimate evidence that this music, however loyal to its origins, is still better in channelling the zeitgeist than anything else.This comes at a stage when Moorings most certainly has nothing left to prove. The Dutch goth icon is one of the last of his kind, someone not only playing goth music but breathing it. Asmainland Europes most influential goth project, CLAN OF XYMOX comes second only to the pilgrim fathers BAUHAUS or THE CURE - bearing in mind the both precious and unusual difference that Moorings is as creative as he ever was, broadcasting his morbid ballads with the same zeal, the same agony. This isnt the Cold War anymore, this is not the eighties. The epic scope of his music, however, remains the same.Fortunately, "Spider on the Wall" is free of unpleasant surprises. Almost 40 years into his services for the dark side, Ronny Moorings finds himself at yet another high in his career.His songs breathe sophisticated weltschmerz, carried by mesmerising beats, reverb-drenched guitars and floating synthesizers, his whole world of sound a lesson in fine goth arts. As on his seminal and groundbreaking releases in the murky eighties, CLAN OF XYMOX still court with the promise of catharsis. Yes, the world is pretty much fucked. Yes, these are dire times. But at least we now have the appropriate soundtrack for this dystopia turned reality, sporting "I dont like myself", "When we were young" or "Lovers", three of the finest pieces he ever wrote.Pretty remarkable for someone who released his first album 35 years ago, isnt it?

TRACKLISTING: 01. She 02. Lovers 03. Into The Unknown 04. All I Ever Know 05. I Dont Like Myself 06. Spider On The Wall 07. When We Were Young 08. Black Mirror 09. My New Lows 10. See You On The Other Side
