Content: Welcome to the dark-side of the Mexican scene, which is enlightened by a strong cocktail of artists dealing with gothic-, dark-wave- and post-punk music. It’s first of all an opportunity to discover an impressive list of unknown or less familiar formations. From pure 80s inspired dark-wave songs to minimal-wave to gothic, this sampler has a lot to offer, but will first of all appeal for guitar lovers.
+ + + : Like most productions released by Sector Industrial Producciones, this sampler has a great artistic layout while the inside booklet will give you interesting info about the bands. I also like compilations on, which you can discover ‘new’ and/or ‘less familiar’ names. But I also discovered cool songs by bands such as Das Leiden, Valeria, Capitals and Hueco.
– – – : I think it’s rather ‘normal’ to discover a few forgettable songs, but globally speaking if you’re into this kind of music you for sure gone hear noticeable cuts.
Conclusion: We’re more familiar with the electro-minded artists from Mexico, but this compilation reveals an interesting canvas of gothic music.
Best bands: Valeria, Capitals, Hueco, Das Leiden, Hoffen, Severance.
