Guillotine Dream: Damaged and Damned album review by Tzina Dovve…

Damaged and Damned… The new album by the U.K. trio can only be described in one simple sentence… True old-school goth rock at its finest moments. After two E.P.s and a full length album Guillotine Dream’s fourth release is definitely their best so far… 🎶💀🎶
Damaged and Damned… Released on Secret Sin Records ten haunting dark tracks take us back to the good old goth days of The Sisters and The Nephs. A nostalgic mid-eighties feel brings back memories of smokey goth clubs with a clad of black coats, boots and hats on the dancefloor. Carefree times…🦇🦇
Damaged and Damned… Gothic rock masterpieces. Melodic, but intense guitar riffs and deeper than the darkest dungeon vocals are more than dominant on this album. Castles, knights and dark gloomy forests is the first picture that comes to mind. A perfect atmosphere…🎶💀🎶

Damaged and Damned… Highlights of the album… The opening track ‘Like Every Other Ghost’ ushers us slowly into what is about to follow on this album. A first taste of the eighties vibe with its intense and sharp guitar riffs and dark haunting vocals. Gothdom is in the air…

🦇

The title track ‘Damaged and Damned’ follows into a goth explosion of powerful bass lines and fierce guitars throughout this track. A very fast and upbeat tune bringing us back to early Nephilim days… Carl McCoy would be proud…

🦇

‘Hidden Rooms’ and ‘Hidden Rooms 2’ …two dark subdivided tracks… The former more upbeat than the latter..Deep haunting lyrics and a melodic tone in the guitars is what make these tunes so well defined on this album. Goth rock epics…

🦇

‘Vermillion’… The final track on this dark album takes us on our last trip through the haunted forest with its slow and morbid atmosphere. A slow but steady beat with intense guitar riffs and deep whispering vocals. The grim reaper is here…

🦇

Damaged and Damned… The title says it all in these crazy times… Guillotine Dream have delivered one of the best goth rock albums in 2020…

…An album that all die hard goth rock fans will want to own in their music collection. Well done boys…

🦇

…Old-school meets new. A true goth rock masterpiece. Don’t miss it…
