Lestat -Arisen

This is NOT my thing at all!  But surprising enough, I did not hate this.  What I am referring to is Lestat, a goth rock band from Ohio, and their release “Arisen”.  The dreary vocals and minimalist approach to the music make for some real mood music.  I found it better to listen at night than day…..just makes sense!  Comparisons can be found in Depeche Mode, a touch of INXS (some of the vocals), and in some parts a “diet” Rob Zombie.

Lestat -Arisen


Lestat is a unique yet familiar band. With the mind numbing vocal tonations to the sometimes elaborate musical patterns this band entices the listener to explore their world. I heard some familiarities in their music to bands such as Depeche Mode to, an unfamiliar band to most, Switchblade Symphony. I enjoyed this but also heard some spots that could be improved. Over all I give this release a 7/10 and hope to hear more.
