Sinbeats- Sinbeats

 

The new self-titled album from Germany's Sinbeats has everything that makes gothic rock great. With moody verses giving way to driving, sing-along choruses, songs like album opener "Down The Line" and "Annabel Lee," a rendition of Edgar Allen Poe's love poem, are anthemic and powerful, and "Burning All Stars" is so upbeat and enthusiastic it could almost be described as perky. Fans of The Damned will particularly enjoy "I Want My Analogue Life Back," which draws heavy inspiration from the seminal dark punk band, right down to the jangling guitars and larger than life backing vocals, while the bluesy twang of "Poor Jack" and "Shell Beach" inject hints of country in the vein of Nick Cave without detracting from the band's dramatic atmosphere. So many of today's gothic bands seem afraid to really rock out, but Sinbeats thankfully have no such reticence, and even the occasional uneven moments, like the off-key slips that present themselves on "Farewell," somehow just add to the band's enthusiasm and charm. Check this out if you're a fan of that classic sound that doesn't skimp on gothic drama or good old-fashioned rock music.
