Blutengel - Angel Dust
Darkwave, Goth Blutengel's latest album isn't really a surprise in any way. The sound is the same and the lyrics have the same style as before. Chris Pohl, who is more or less responsibe for the whole arrangement, has recruited new female vocalists since Kati and Nina left the band and started their own project. Eva Peolzing and Constance Rudert are the new girls.

I have to point out that their voices not are as powerful as Kati and Nina's. The voices feels a little strained and the whole album appears to be as well. The lyrics definitely sound too alike and so does the music. It's actually hard to separate the songs from each other. Every one of them is about blood, death wish, and broken love. The only song that actually is a little different from the others is 'Vampire Romance Part I', which is also the first single from the album.

Even if the album went straight up the German top 100 list I still have to say that to me it's a disappointment. Place your money on 'Child of Glass' or 'Seelenscmerez' instead. Not even the nice design on the album can save this one!
