MOLLUST “Schuld”

German symphonic gothic metal might bring up images of a band that has overdosed on Wagner’s mastodon operas. I for one wouldn’t mind something that grand to come out of my speakers when I listen to this album. But that is a wishful thought that might not be realized in any near future. I like the fact that this band sings in German. It adds to the feel of the music. It gives it a more dramatic touch. I also like the fact that the vocalist isn’t your typical soprano type. There is more gruff to her vocal style that gives the music a harder edge. Add to that the violin and you get a really cool sound. This was just as good as I had hoped for it to be, the Wagner grandeur aside. Anders Ekdahl
