The Crüxshadows - Frozen Embers
Darkwave, Electro After their hit with the latest full-length album 'Wishfire' Rogue with his band releases a taste of what the next album (that are expected to be released in October) has to offer. The Crüxshadows have not had a huge amount of fans in Sweden the last years, rather a sufficient amount of saved. Although I think the winds of change will blow after their cheered concert during the Arvika festival this year.

The E.P contains three new songs, seven remixes from 'Wishfire', two remixes of the new song "Winter Born (This Sacrifice)" and the track "Deception" that first was published on the album 'Telemetry of a Fallen Angel' that was released in the beginning of their career.

How does the new material sound then? Rogues voice charms you, the lyrics attach like superglue and you grip the first old lady next to you for a little ring dance. The new "Winter Born (This Sacrifice)" and "Dance Floor Metaphor" swings really good and even the soft, melancholic "Sinking" sounds really sweet too.

The only strange thing I find on this record is that they have put five remixes of "Return (Coming home)" on the album. Further on they have put two mixes from Dreamside in a row and I find that kind of odd. Even Assemblage 23 has done a remix of this song. Shouldn't they have put a mix of "Tears" on it instead?

I can't wait for the album. Rogue has charmed me with his voice.
