Title: Brumes Et Pluies
Format: CDS (CD Single)
Label: Cure (@)
Distributor: CDBaby
Rated: *****
Brumes Et Pluies is the most current release of the Japanese Goth-Rock act BLOOD. It’s a 3-track SiCD featuring two versions of the title and the b-side "Sakura". I guess this act has never before produced a more calm and melodic Goth-Rock track than the title track. Well done piano sounds got mixed with the driving guitar force and Fu-Ki’s always appealing vocal performance. But I must admit, that the b-side grabs me a bit more. The lyrics of "Sakura" got co-written by a member of the second phase of BLOOD, Takeshi, together with band leader Kiwamu. Finally the second version of the title track, which is a remix work by BOSSA NOVE, comes a bit more minimal arranged, but also a bit faster than the original. Again a quality release by this act, fans have to act ASAP, because only a very few exemplars are available.
