Angelika & Demons, underground gothic metal project from Moscow which
is already well-known worldwide in Internet due to such songs as
Zemlya, song and video Iisus Christos (which was released on CD in
Croatia as a soundtrack to multimedia project of Zoran Krusvar),
Starfire (collaboration with Tony McKormack, guitarist of a goth rock
band Inkubus Sukkubus), collaboration with JC Carroll (The Members),
etc. is happy to present the first full-length (demo) album Easy Death
which has been recorded in 2008-2009.
The album is available on iTunes USA, iTunes Europe/UK, iTunes Japan,
Amazon.com and Rhapsody for digital mp3 download only.
Most of songs are performed in English and some in 2 languages at once
(English and Russian) which brings novelty and originality to the
"Easy Death's" sound will certainly remind listeners of Evanescence
and ex-Nightwish with Tarja Turunen, female-fronted metal bands with
gothic overtones, and can be of interest for their fans.
Beautiful pensive piano ballads with angelic voice alternate heavy
guitar riffs and powerful opera singing. Strings and choirs create a
special gothic atmosphere.
Several girls-vocalists took part in the project and every listener
will find in the album vocals to his taste. At the same time all songs
form a whole and inspired with a single concept.
Easy Death is much more than just a musical album. It carries an
important spiritual message and magical power, so strong that it even
"In fact though the album is devoted to DEATH it is not really
depressive because we take Death not as a tragedy but as a blessing,"
explain Angelika and Mara. "We encourage everyone to change attitude
to death and accept it like freedom, bliss, like a new birth. Don't
suffer, don't cry, TAKE DEATH EASY!"
