Analog Angel – “The Thin Line (Between Love and Hate)” – Album Review

In the shortest while after their 2009 “Dischord” album, Analog Angel strike again – this time, in 2011 with a sound they describe themselves as “A harder, harsher sound than the first album with BIG kick drums, throbbing bass, strings and loads of nice sounds with an unusual twist here and there”. “The Thin Line (Between Love and Hate)“, released on Feb-28, 2011, comes as a needed material especially before the announced stage performances from Analog Angel in 2011 at Infest and WGT – to sum up a momentous 2011 for the band’s timeline.

The Thin Line (Between Love and Hate)” is a very interesting album, with a fresh and quite rough edge, that is sure to gather a numerous audience. The minimal artistry of the album artwork goes hand in hand with a sound that is not at all sophisticated, but at the same time developed in numerous electro dimensions that are worth your attention. The album already comes with an EP for album remixes (“The Thin Line Remix EP“) is a multidimensional trial at epitomizing sensation and concept – from the first to the last, the tracks display a vast array of emotions and listeners are up against quality material. Viva Music favorites are: “Twisted Tortured Faith“, “Today“, “How Does It Feel” and “When You Called My Name“, but we strongly recommend that you take a ride with the entire album tracklist, since it is a sincere exploration of humanity with a no-hassle, independent, and amorously ethical outlook on how things are and how things should be. We enjoyed listening to the album for the mere fact that it deals with emotions and adds an electro soundtrack to it with an unruly, yet very artsy ’80’s feeling to it.

Viva Music at Wave Gotik Treffen 2009


WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN (18th edition), the largest alternative festival in the world, took place between May 29 and June 01, 2009 in Leipzig, Germany. Check out the WGT Website for full details.

For many years the Treffen was celebrated as the largest gathering of the “dark family” in the world. All over the city more than 190 bands, projects and single artists performed on about 20 stages. The events took place for instance in the vaults of the Moritzbastei, in the splendid neoantique cupola hall of the Volkspalast, in the crypt of the Völkerschlachtdenkmal, a famous monument of the battle of 1813, as well as in large concert halls. The people from Leipzig are familiar with the Treffen after 17 years – the Gothic guests are welcome.
