Artist: VV.AA.
Title: Goth's Paradise V – The Black Book
Format: CDx2 (double CD)
Label: Orkus
Distributor: Audioglobe
Ok, you should be familiar with Orkus periodical who's who of the gothic scene – this compilation follows the usual technical characteristics of the series: double cd chock-full of tracks, digipack sleeve, a booklet with succint song information, and cemetery photos all around. Music seems to be equally distributed between dark/goth and electro/EBM and I think all tracks are released stuff from the bands' latest records, or alternative versions/remixes from ep's. Thus said, here are some of the names featured: Lacrimosa, L'ame Immortelle (special prize for "most ubiquitous project": I still have to find one of these samplers without them, eheh), ASP, Lost Signal, Clan of Xymox, Tanzwut, Impressions of Winter, BlutEngel, Hocico, Paradise Lost, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Corvus Corax and a dozen others.
