Third Realm - Romantic Death
Darkwave, Industrial Third Realm is the brainchild of Nathan Reiner from Buffalo, USA. The first thing that struck me, part from that the sound is amazingly dark and gloomy, is that his voice is very similar to one Mr Manson. The singer, not the serial killer, I would not have the slightest idea of what Charles would sound like when he sings. I have not updated myself of what Nathan's influences are, but I think I can hear some Diary of Dreams, some Sisters of Mercy and even some Depeche Mode in this here and there, well, that's at least my impression.

I listened to this album a lot while I coded this site you are looking at right now actually. It was the perfect fit. It's calm, moody and atmospherically gloomy. It's laidback enough for you to be able to have it as music in the background, but so filled with soul that it is impossible not to always listen closely on every word and every note.

'Romantic Death' is one of those albums where I refuse to mention my favourite tracks (part from "Her Rosary", only because it is so wonderful I can't resist), this is an album that should be enjoyed from the first word to the last, even though I can't help but feel it dips a little bit in the end, but not enough for it to be that relevant in the long run.

This is Third Realm's fourth release, and that experience he got under his wings is really shown here. With all that talent, I can't wait until I can hear release number five. A perfect fit for Diary of Dream's own label Accession Records perhaps?
