Faith and the Muse - Elyria (cd ripped, 320 mp3). 1994.

   Faith and the Muse formed in 1993 in LA by Monica Richards (ex member of the punk band Madhouse and gothic Strange Boutique) and William Faith (Christian Death, Mephisto Waltz, Shadow Project).

   Wiliam Faith was a long time member of LA's punk and gothic scene. He later played for the English punk band The Conflict and he is currently a member of the anarchopunk collective Anima Mundi.

   Faith and the Muse is one of the best gothic bands from LA. Richards and Faith met each other in 1993 when Strange Boutique played with Shadow Project and soon they formed the band.

   Inspired by gothic rock and pagan traditional music such as Celtic and Irish folk, they created a bittersweet sound making death rock songs and also beautifull ethereal ballads.
   This is their first LP and one of the best.

Inkubus Sukkubus - Heartbeat Of The Earth (cd ripped, 320 mp3). 1995.

   This is the third album by this excellent band. 
   Inkubus Sukkubus formed in the summer of 1989 when Tony McKormack, Candia Ridley and Adam Henderson met at college studying graphic design. They shared an interest in paganism, witchcraft and vampirism as well as making original music from an early age, and so the type of band that was to emerge from the joining of forces was, quite naturally, an expression of this.
    Initially the band was called Incubus Succubus. The original aim of the band was (as it still is today) to be the vehicle in which the celebration of the Pagan experience could be conveyed (from band's site).
   This album is equally mindblowing as their first two and it contains some of their best songs ever - Prince Of Shadows, Young Lovers, Witch Hunt, Love Spell, Heartbeat Of The Earth.
   Enjoy this passionate music with all your soul and your body.

1. Heartbeat of the Earth
2. Young Lovers
3. Underworld
4. Prince Of Shadows
5. Craft of the Wise
6. Corn King
7. Witch Hunt
8. Fire of Love
9. Love Spell
10. Song For Our Age
11. Intercourse With The Vampyre
12. Sabrina
13. Catherine
14. Take My Hunger

     Io Pan!

Fields Of The Nephilim - Revelations 2 (plus!) (cd, mp3 320). 1993.

   Of all the bands involved in Britain's goth rock movement of the 1980s, Fields Of The Nephilim were the most believable. The group's cryptic, occult-inspired songs were sung in a guttural roar by vocalist Carl mc Coy

   Live appearances were shrouded with dim light and smoke machines, while bandmembers stalked the stage in black desperado gear inspired by western dress. The group was also one of the longest lived of the original goth rock groups. (from allmusic)

   Revelations, band's official compilation, was released in 1993 by Beggar's Banquet Records and it contains 12 of their best songs so far. Some releases of this compilation included a bonus disc containing 7 songs - b sides and unreleased tracks and this is the content of this file. We also added two songs from the Psychonaut single (Psychonaut IIII and Psychonaut II. 
    Also you'll find Sumerland in an alternative version (Sumerland Dreamed) taken from the single with the same title and Sumerland (instrumental) taken from the unofficial vinyl album The Sacred And The Profane.

1. Sumbission Two (the dub posture)
2. Preacher Man (contaminated mix)
3. Celebrate (second seal)
4. Shiva
5. Psychonaut Lib I
6. In Every Dream Home A Heartache
7. Moonchild (unsealed)
8. Blue Water (electrostatic)
9. Psychonaut IIII
10. Psychonaut II
11. Sumerland Dreamed
12. Sumerland (instrumental demo)

The first 7 songs are the Revelations 2 cd and the rest are songs i collected.

 Dedicated to all you goths out there with love!

"π" Original Soundtrack - various artists. (Ripped from cd, mp3 320). 1999.

  Pi, also titled π, is a 1998 American surrealistic psychological thriller film written and directed by Darren Aronofsky in his directional debut. The film earned Aronofsky the Directing Award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival, and the Gotham Open Palm Award. The title refers to the mathematical constant π.

The film tells the story of a paranoid mathematician who is searching for the key number that will unlock the universal patterns found in nature. Of course the CIA is watching from a distance. Also a strange kabbalistic sect keeps an eye on him, waiting for the results of his work.
   The soundtrack is exactly like the movie. Obscure, dark electronics by some of the best. Clint Mansell, Autechre, Massive Attack, Aphex Twin are some of the artists that created this futuristic dystopian soundtrack. A true masterpiece.

1. Clint Mansell - πR2
2. Orbital - P.E.T.R.O.L.
3. Autechre - Kalpol Intro
4. Aphex Twin -  Buchefalus Bouncing Ball
5. Roni Size - Watching Windows
6. Massive Attack - Angel
7. Clint Mansell - We Got The Gun

Front 242 - Re : Boot : Live (cd ripped, mp3 320). 1998.

   Draw any map of electronic music and you’ll definitely need Front 242 somewhere at its centre. Taking a lead from the UK industrial scene of the mid-‘70s, the Brussels band set out on a path of exploration and innovation that has continued pretty much to the present day.

   More of a forward-thinking community than a traditional group, Front 242 was at the forefront of electronic music’s move into the mainstream and continues to defy convention in its sonic communication.

   Following the extensive 1993 tour, Front 242 took a temporary break which many assumed to be permanent after nothing was heard from the band for four years, while the individual members pursued other recording projects and work. 

1997 brought a return to action in the live arena, and while no new songs were on offer, the bandmembers stated that they wanted to try new techno-inspired arrangements and presentations of many old songs. The results can be heard on Re:Boot, taken from two European dates in 1997 and 1998.

   Re:Boot really is a killer album. Kicking off with a rampaging version of Evil Off's "Happiness (Modern Angel)," Re:Boot serves up both the expected hits -- "Masterhit," "Headhunter," "Welcome to Paradise" -- and a slew of strong album cuts.

     Where Front 242 change things around with the songs, the results can be fascinating -- "Melt," for example, turns into a slow, moody crawl, mixed up with subtle breakbeats on the chorus. "In Rhythmus Bleiben" also gets an impressive energy charge, while "Religion" turns into an astonishing, Prodigy-tinged rave monster. (from Allmusic)


1. Happiness
2. Masterhit
3. Moldavia
4. Melt
5. Soul Manager
6. No Shuffle
7. Im Rythmus Bleiben
8. Crapage
9. Body To Body
10. Religion
11. Headhunter
12. Welcome To Paradise
13. First In First Out

Anne Clark - Wordprocessing. The remix project (cd ripped, mp3 320).1997. Re-upload

Anne Clark (born 14 May 1960 in London), is an excellent poet and songwriter. Her first album, The Sitting Room, was released in 1982, and she has released over a dozen albums since then.

Her experimental music occupies a region bounded roughly by electronic, dance (techno applies on occasion) and possibly avant garde genres, with varying hard as well as romantic and orchestral styles.

Clark is mainly a spoken word artist. Many of her lyrics deal critically with the imperfections of humanity, everyday life, and politics. Especially in her early works she has created a gloomy, melancholy kind of atmosphere. 
This wonderfull album includes some of her best songs remixed by famous names of electronic music like Sven Vaeth, Juno Reactor, Total Eclipse etc. The most tender moments mix with hard electronic beats creating magical soundscapes.
This is a piece of pure art and one the most beautifull albums i've ever heard!
1. Virtuality - Global Youth remix
2. The Healing (Aural Float treatment)
3. Sleeper in Metropolis (Hardfloor 97 version)
4. Letter of thanks to a friend (Radi Mate mix by Mouse on Mars)
5. Nida (Saafi Bros remix)
6. Our Darkness (Hardfloor 97 version)
7. Homecoming (Pascal F.E.O.S. remix)
8. Sleeper in Metropolis (Sleepers Revenge mix by Sven Vaeth and Ralf Hill)
9. Contact (Contact 2017 mix by The Mover)
10. Wallies (Night of the Hunter remix by Juno Reactor)
11. Our Darkness (Total Eclipse remix)

The Mission U.K. - Aura (cd ripped, mp3 320). 2001.

   Aura is the ninth studio album by The Mission. After some goth pop albums that failed to earn the goth fans, the band returns with a pure gothic rock album.

With the spirit of "Serpent's Kiss" playing around its intro guitars, and an anthemic quality that cannot be ignored, the opening "Evangeline" insists from the outset that the reborn Mission are not here to simply make up the numbers.

Aura sounds like the greatest-hits album that never was, a succession of brilliantly conceived ghosts that reassemble all the Mission's proudest moments, then fashion something dynamically new and pure from them. True, "Cocoon" does glance in the direction of the Cure for its bassline, and "(Slave To) Love" wallows in that same discomfortingly sexually implicit trough as Masque's "Heaven Sends You". From start to finish, it's The Mission back at the starting post. (from Allmusic).

Enjoy this excellent work of gothic art here
