GOTHIC - Underground CD


Released January 20, 2024.

“It’s been more than 5 years since I wrote the first riffs for the new songs. Going through pandemics, deaths, line-up changes, plus war and madness all around the world, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the result is exceptional. The new tracks were made from deep within the heart and encompass all of my lifelong musical influences. I chose to work again with Loud Rage Music because they did an exceptional job on the “Demons” promotion and I’m sure it will be even better this time!” – Alin Petruț (Gothic founder, vocalist and guitarist).

“The cover is a digital painting I made by blowing smoke out of my graphic tablet – literally (I had to buy a new one along the way!).The main character, the demon in the picture (who’s also slowly becoming the mascot of the band), was already born on the cover of the previous album “Demons”. He has reached maturity and actually portrays the demon that is in each of us. At the same time, he represents the musical continuity of the band as well as a stubbornness, a “statement”, raising the flag high. The rocker who is next to him, gives him support and helps him get out of the underground, he represents us, as well as the public – our friends, those who stood by us and supported us throughout the years.”- Csaba “Taly” Talpai (Gothic bassist)
