SUSPIRIA / Drama (1997)
Long dead British Darkwave band made up of only two people. As well as being the envy of every goth band in existence for nabbing that name they played dance-floor friendly gloom for the shut-ins and people who prefer black velvet undies (keeps your janglies warm on winter morns). Trading the usual guitars for programmed beats sounds dated now but in '97 it was still interesting. It manages to stand out from the rest of the clones and isn't the worst thing to come from that scene. If you own and enjoy anything on the Nightbreed record label you’ll maybe like this one.
