Various A Winter’s Song Vol. 2

Toronto’s Rhea Obsession’s do double duty by singing beautifully (“We Three Kings”) with the help of Spahn Ranch’s Athan Maroulis. Their other contribution (“Huron Indian Carol”) is a gothic gem. Christmas beauty shines like a bright winter morning for the enchanting celestial “Silver and Gold” by Faith & Disease. This one blends perfectly with Lynn Canfield’s glorious rendition of “The True Present.” In the non-ethereal department, London After Midnight’s ominous performance of “The Christmas Song” seems like genius when compared to the horrid modern day “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” by the Cruxshadows. Goths’ should be thankful however that Projekt have created another alternative to Manheim Steamroller. (Projekt)
