HER DESPAIR ”Mournography”


Battle Helm Rating

I really don’t want to write the obvious but it is hard to not do so when you get sent a record like this. UK’s HER DESPAIR are a goth tinged rock/metal band. The obvious would be to mention Sisters Of Mercy and even though it was the first name to pop up I feel that this has more in common with stuff like The Mission and Bauhaus if we are talking pure goth. Maybe even a bit of Joy Division. There is something to HER DESPAIR’s goth/dark metal that appeals to me. I got me hooked from the very first note. And not simply because it brought back good memories of past greats but more because there is a beat to this that gets your heart pumping, even though it is relatively melancholic. This is a really nice release. Anders Ekdahl
