The Crüxshadows - Ethernaut
Darkwave, Electro I don't think anyone can disagree with the fact that The Crüxshadows has become a big name around the world. Considering that 'Ethernout' is the most pre-ordered record through all times at Isotank Music Mailorder add even more evidence to my thesis.

I had high expectations on this record and I unfortunately have to say that I'm really disappointed. 'Ethernout' doesn't have the same strength as many as the other albums do, for example their latest full-length album 'Wishfire' with tracks like "Return (Coming home)", "Spectators", "Tears" and many more.

'Ethernout' begins with the intro "Into the Ether" were the song reminds me of our Lappish joik and it's very beautiful. Nevertheless this record is mainly a boring production with some really bad tracks (for example track number 10 - "East"). The first track together with "Cassandra", "Untrue", "A Stranger Moment" and the main track "Winterborn" from the latest E.P Frozen Embers is the only thing keeping this record from reaching the bottom.

I'm certain that 'Ethernout' will sell really well and we already know that their album promotional tour have been a success. But what is really the point when the album doesn't have that much to give?
