Final Selection - Antihero
Synthpop Final Selection is a German group signed to the polish label Black Flames Records. The two members in the band are Riccardo Schult and Mario Tews and they have made music together since 1992.

The band describes their album like this: "Antihero is pop music, Antihero is Darkwave, Antihero is different. But first of all, Antihero is a collection of small stories - warm, full of feeling, and melancholy..." A perfect description of this record couldn't have done it any better.

'Antihero' is a direct hit in the bulls eye. Dark, melancholic, really appealing lyrics and with a fantastic feeling and atmosphere that spreads to the darkest parts of the heart. Riccardo Schult has a wonderful voice that really fits its purpose. This is simply a record that you could hear over and over again without ever get tired of it.

Come on, don't spend more time reading this article, go and buy this record and get the chance to enjoy tracks like "Tears", "Divine Punishment" and "Never wanted more" just like I have the last couple of weeks.
