Genre/Influences: Gothic, Dark-Wave.
Format: Digital, CD, Cassette.
Background/Info: There’s not a lot of real information available about this band except that they’re signed on to the Greek label Werkstatt Recordings and they already released a few EP’s.
Content: The EP features 5 songs. There’s a kind of intro and outro cut while the other songs left are pretty short as well. Eerie Sopor deals with a rather classical Dark-Wave and Gothic style accomplished with guitar playing and Electro melodies with cavernous vocals on top.
+ + + : I like an EP featuring 5 different songs. The song “Burning Angel” reveals a true potential; it’s not that innovative, but a well-crafted dark song carried by guitar and melodic synth lines on top. The Gothic lovers are going to like the singers’ deep timbre of voice.
– – – : The songs are a bit too short to my taste. There’s more potential hiding inside this band than what comes out.
Conclusion: Eerie Sopor is a band I didn’t know. I can’t say this EP is setting the world alight, but it clearly reveals a band with potential.
Best songs: “Burning Angel”.
