GITANE DEMONE: The Reflecting Shadow: CD

Another solo effort from this former Christian Death chanteuse. Melding bits of goth, blues, jazz, and industrial with gobs of gloom and heaps of theatricality, she delivers nine tracks that sound like the possible fruits of Brecht, Waits, and early Coil collaborating on some morose musical, with her voice giving the whole undertaking some added class. The casual listener might find it all a wee bit too dark, but fans and folks who prefer their Halloweens without all the stifling modern day-glow jollity will find much to sink their filed teeth into.
