Creature Feature

The Greatest Show Unearthed
Sumerian Records

Great band name, great cover art and a cool cd that looks like a vinyl record. With all that going for them does the music stack up? Well, since I have not heard much "gothic rock" in a long time, this was pretty cool. Kind of a dark carnival vibe with the guitar and keyboards combined with a wicked since of humor to the lyrics. Imagine early Marilyn Manson (but not as heavy) crossed with Voltaire's lyrical wit. After listening to track five "A Gory Demise" you just have to love these guys!
