Solemn Novena : Kiss the Girls - CD Solemn Novena : Kiss the Girls - CD  Ref: 19629 Stop it! Enough is enough! The never-ending wimps of "yesterday's sound", "dusty sound" and "music from the tomb" - all bullshit. In a time, when narrow-minded Krautrock is sold as Gothic, Techno-Rave claims to be "The Next Big Thing" and one still desperately searches for the connection between bagpipes and dark-wave - exactly in that time North Irish trio SOLEMN NOVENA release a debut album sounding like the essence of Goth. Guitars sound like from outer space - sometimes atmospherically floating, sometimes aggressively cutting, but without old metal-riff cliché. A drum computer sets the stoic-cool beat, the bass pounds deep in your stomach that music can literally be felt again. This is what they stand for: Front woman LOUISE CRANE (by the way the sexiest Goth-singer ever…), guitarist, singer and mastermind MARC McCOURT (already known as Dominic LaVey of the UK-Vampire Goths of NOSFERATU and member of 90s underground heroes RETURN TO KHAF'JI) as well as bass player Stuart Harland.

For years demos of the Belfast trio have been circulating among the underground. Songs like the heavenly "Siren" (now as cooler Album version on "Kiss the Girls") conquered easily the dance floors from London to Berlin, from L.A. to Athens. Unsurprisingly, it was time for an official debut release as it had been frequently asked for after the exclusive German live-debut in 2008 at the "Se* & Drugs & Drum Machines"-Festival in Berlin."Kiss the Girls" does everything right. SOLEMN NOVENA extract the finest ingredients of style-legends like ROSETTA STONE, ALL ABOUT EVE or aforementioned NOSFERATU, to develop an individual sound that fits harmonically into the second decade of the 21st century. "Ruined" as well as the previously (digitally released) single "Silver", "Trick or Treat", the title song and "Siren (2009)" are ready to show the world out there that Goth can be cool and far more than the ‘usual stuff' being released under the label ‘Goth' these days! Goth still breaths the spirit of dark rock music and is still able to simply touch your soul. SOLEMN NOVENA will present "Kiss the Girls" exclusively live for the first time at this year's WGT in Leipzig! 2010 UK Goth, thy name is SOLEMN NOVENA.
