Live Gothic (Nuclear Blast)
by Scott Hefflon
Last record was called Gothic Kabbalah, and this is the live version of it. Follow me so far? Seriously, this band’s been around for two decades (about 15 year in the public eye, five years before much of anyone noticed, though I hear they were creative and interesting then too), and any metal fan who doesn’t have a CD or two in their collection ought to seriously consider their next breath. Really. Are you braindead or just not paying attention? Just die already and clear up some space on the highway. Ok, maybe just be embarrassed for being WAY behind the bell-curve and get out there and buy a few Therion CDs and realize they rule, your friends are posers, and pass the wisdom along to others like it ain’t no thing, cool guy.
