empathy_test An Album with depths, dark and good beats. The vocals on "Skeletons Are Dancing" nearly sounds a little bit like Robert Smith. Lots of emotions in that Album. Favorite track: Skeletons Are Dancing.

Christian Schaefer Featured this album on the forty eighth issue of RULE of THREE (bit.ly/RULEofTHREEbc). Dream House makes for a perfect follow up - euphoric chord changes and a driving melodic motif that resonates and evolves throughout. This track has a wonderful sense of drama and intensity that shimmers and builds. Dream House encapsulates all the best elements of this band in one single track where every element is simply a pure delight. Favorite track: Dream House.

about

"Collection of shadows" aims at being a mature and straightforward album that is brutally nostalgic in its own way. It is rooted in Leopardi’s nihilism and Pascoli’s melancholic darkness. Reaching beyond the experimental asperities and smokescreens of Pale and sick, European Ghost are discarding their gas mask with a baring album, acutely aware of a bitter adulthood. A collection of shadows is the account of our existence, of being left with nothing. It is the sardonic account that revolves around the ineffability of life as made of faded dreams and broken chimeras. The need for poetic realism opens up European Ghost to wider and gentler sounds, preserving however the martial rhythms of their first album – to dance “with tears in my eyes”.
