ERA DEL VACIO - S/T LP Cintas Pepe
Anybody tracking this label knows how much I love the community of folks behind Tercer Mundo/Muerte/Cintas Pepe Records/Inservibles/etc. And anyone paying attention to the recorded output of these bands can probably tell that these guys have a lot of love and appreciation for goth.
So you can imagine my anticipation and excitement when they tell me Dave Rata, Roger, and Eumir have a goth band with a full LP recorded. And imagine my blissful reaction when I hear these recordings. Great goth music, with the energy and momentum of punk, captured on a warm and raw recording that gives both the vibrancy and lo-fi desperation you want to hear. I think this band stands a few degrees above most of the other trend goth/post-punk kinda bands by virtue of being more energetic and having higher quality/better crafted songs and riffs (wait....isn't this kinda what makes all these guys' bands so good? hmmmm.....).
