Back in 2004 two hardcore goth rockers, John “Preacherman_DF” and John “Cecrops”, decided to form a band. After joining forces with Akis L , a talented singer and composer, After Dusk was officially born. Deeply influenced by legendary bands of the scene such as The Sisters of Mercy and Fields of the Nephilim, as well as underground acts of the German and Scandinavian goth rock scene, they entered the studio determined to make a goth rock  album of unique power and atmosphere. Their music style combines the best elements of the genre, while their personal touch gives an epic feeling to the songs. Although the album is almost 10 years old, its sound and feeling are timeless. Actually this record is the answer to the prayers of any old school goth rock fan. It contains 13 tracks of traditional goth rock, in which deep haunting vocals, powerful guitar riffs and blasting drum machines create the perfect mood for dance-floor madness. In their lyrics the listener can find references to the lost cities of H.P. Lovecraft, the archetype of the vampire, apocalyptic prophecies and legends of ancient deities. Special mention should be made to the brilliant cover version of Paul Roland’s “Nosferatu”.  

With this release, Gothic Music Records reveals After Dusk’s hidden treasure and sheds their dark light to the world. Special tip: although not included on the album, do yourselves a favor and check out the band’s fantastic cover version of Fields of the Nephilim’s classic “Endemoniada”, which will probably be featured on a future release.
