Ye olde school Goth seems to be going through a bit of a revival at the moment, no bad thing with recent live performances by Killing Joke, Sisters of Mercy, The Mission amongst others all gracing the pages of Uber Rock, and we all know deep insdie theres nothing wrong with a bit of Goth - proper Goth that is.
Terminal Gods are a London collective providing what can only be stated as proper Goth albeit with a "modern" vibe. These guys and a gal are influenced by some real old school stuff that's for sure as along with the Sisters there are hints of Fields Of The Nephilim, a touch of The Mission and even a bit of primetime Bauhaus for good measure. Throw all those influences together and get it even half right and you simply can't fail and in fairness Termional Gods don't (fail that is). Lead track of this 3 song E.P 'Electric Eyes' is extremely catchy stuff, 'God Child' meanwhile could be 'Marian' played at 78rpm and extra bonus MP3 'Red Lite Love' could be a new generations very own 'Wasteland'.
I really like this single, it's ridiculously catchy and every time I play it I find myself singing along which is a feat in itself, this is a band with potential but in saying that I'd really like to see them move the sound forward a bit by drawing on the influences rather than be totally immersed in them. Good first single though.
