EERIE VON: Bad Dream #13: CD

Jul 22, 2006

Gloom, doom, and general misery abound here, which is what one would expect from the former bass player for Samhain/Danzig. While the faintest of Glenn influences may be apparent, this actually sounds more like Ian Curtis fronting Death in June, who in turn happen to be on a blues bender. While it works in some places, the songs overall aren’t all that engaging or strong, and thus tend to blend together after a while. With better material to work with, and a full-on band, Eerie might just pull off a truly great death rock album yet.
