This review is from: Deeper Visions (Audio CD)
Ah, sometimes, there is nothing like a Goth. They make mighty fine kindling you know. Sometimes they even make good records. And this is one of them. For the ignorant out there, NFD was formed by ex members of Fields Of The Nephilim, and it's their dank, dour flour covered template that they have taken, and expanded.
Although this is technically their third album, it's a peculiar hybrid of six new songs, remixes and videos. So, if you've never investigated them, this is a mighty fine way to get into the groove.work. The most melodic of the tracks is the poptastic 'When The Sun Dies', which is an archetypal mainstream goth track, the kind that actually used to chart back in the days when we had proper charts and proper records. You can almost picture HIM having a bash at it.
The bulk of the material is taken up with mid paced, doom laden tunes with 'Let It Rain' probably the pick of the bunch. The remixes are another run through of 'When The Sun Dies' and a revisit to 'Caged' from their earlier "Dead Pool Rising" release. Over in video land, you get two live videos and two promo videos, with the live stuff being much better. More traditional gothsters might take umbrage at the dance element they sometimes incorporate, but newer recruits to the legions of the damned will find a lot to enjoy.
