Theme - Valentine (Lost) Forever cd

Can't find much info about this band, apart from them being British. But their origin seems very relevant to their style as they take their cue from the legends of British dark electronic and post-industrial music like Coil, Thighpaulsandra and The Hafler Trio, and also having a more droning edge thus also being close to the best of the followers of that legacy like Cyclobe and Unicarn, while the singer's voice is amazingly similar to David Tibet's in its occultish articulation. The final track, also, is a tranced-out remix of track Burn the Truth ("If this is the end, then it's time to burn the truth" is being repeated over and over as a cathartic mantra) prepared by Steven Severin of Siouxsie and the Banshees. Nice stuff. 2009 cd on Heart & Crossbone Records.
