The lamentations about the fading glorious times of gothic culture has come to an end because when THE BLACK CAPES enter the stage, a whole dark world shines in new splendor. Where great icons such as TYPE O NEGATIVE, THE 69 EYES or the SISTERS OF MERCY have been unchallenged in the gothic Olympus, finally there is a worthy successor from Athens.
Although THE BLACK CAPES are considered a newcomer due to their founding in 2016, the Greek musicians have already gained a lot of experience: who already has shared the stage with icons such as MONSTER MAGNET, PARADISE LOST, VADER, ROTTING CHRIST or SEPTIC FLESH, is also ready to compete with the elite of gothic rock and gothic metal.
With their second album "Lullabies For The Dead" the Athenians impressively prove that they understand like no other, what has always been the spirit of the past. Effortlessly they combine this understatement with the modern sound of our time, creating a masterpiece of hard, gloomy riffs and Singing full of tension, feeling and roughness.
“Lullabies For The Dead” is a masterpiece in all aspects, which starts the worthy prelude of a new era of gothic rock and gothic metal, and no one, who appreciates the beauty of dark music and has waited it for far too long, should miss this groundbreaking release.
