Siva Six - The Twin Moons
Dark Electro, Harsh EBM My thoughts about this new album from Siva Six has been clear to me for quite some time now, but during the time that has passed since then I spent just amazed of what an astonishing album 'The Twin Moons' really is. Even though I really love 'Rise New Flesh' and 'Black Will', their latest accomplishment is surely the best the Greek duo has produced this far. At the moment, there's not much going right in Athens and Greece, but if the world would understand how amazing this production is, Greece economical issues would be solved two times over with only the money from the sales of this album.

In an endless sea of Harsh EBM bands that all sounds pretty much the same, Siva Six really stands out. A lot of that praise should go to Z for his great vocals; I could identify them any day, even while tossed around in a tornado, while sleeping. But great vocals are nothing without great music and Siva Six succeeds with great honours.

In my world, 'The Twin Moons' is close to a perfect Harsh album. There are a few down parts with it, but for most of the time you'll be fed fat on great melodies, harsh and in-your-face lyrics and mind breaking vocals. While many artists and bands try to capture the sounds and emotions of a nightmare or a horror flick, Siva Six somewhat brings this to the table without forcing it in your face, which actually have quite a scary effect, like the boy singing about Jesus in my favourite track "Valley of the Shadows".

While "Valley of the Shadows" is my favourite track with the band, you really need to hear a couple of more songs. If I was forced to only mention three tracks from this album, it would be the earlier mentioned one as well as "Faileth Stars" and the Vangelis cover "Blade Runner (Star Dust)". They are all evidence of perfection.

I've always felt that Siva Six is one true underrated band. If 'The Twin Moons' don't sort that issue out, the world population should perform Seppuku due to the shame we have brought upon ourselves.
