Title - 'Cryptology'
Artist - Rosetta Stone

For those not in the know, Gothic mastermind, Porl King, returns with an excellent new Rosetta Stone album that will take fans back to goth's heyday!

The band, named after the Rosetta Stone, an Egyptian historical artifact, honed their style early on and their first album reflected the jangly-guitar sounds of 1980s gothic rock accordingly.

Their first big break came after live gigs supporting the then already well-established band The Mission. The band then moved to a more electronic sound before disbanding in 1998.

King's songwriting has only grown stronger since his debut in the early '90s and these 10 original tracks here on the just-released (by Cleopatra Records) Cryptology demonstrate it fully!

1. 'Shock'
2. 'Valiant Try'
3. 'With This [I’m Done]'
4. 'In Black'
5. 'Soon'
6. 'Remember (Don’t)'
7. 'I Put it to You'
8. 'Doesn’t Bode Well'
9. 'Smoke & Mirrors'
10. 'Always Always'

This quite brilliant flashback to an era run by bands such as Sisters Of Mercy, Bauhaus and Fields of the Nephilim, opens with the mid-tempo 'Shock' and backs that up with the electronic hipsway of 'Valiant Try,' the melodic 'With This [I’m Done],' the Cure-esque 'In Black,' and then the gently frenetic 'Soon.'

The twisting effervescence of 'Remember (Don’t)' is a stand out for me and is followed by the subtle Goth rocker 'I Put it to You,' the low key, mid-tempo 'Doesn’t Bode Well,' rounding out with the reliable Goth pop synth beats of both 'Smoke & Mirrors' and 'Always Always.'

Available on both CD as well as vinyl in your choice of PURPLE or classic BLACK (only 250 copies!).
