Virgins O.R. Pigeons–Place no Reliance CD review

While this band isn’t Japanese, they’re on a Japanese label, and that’s good enough for me.
Virgins O.R. Pigeons is a gothic electronica group from Greece, and are signed to Darkest Labyrinth, Kiwamu’s label. Their first album, Place no Reliance, released in March of 2007 is a great debut from this three piece band.

The first song on Place no Reliance is Hypnosis, this is a short introduction track. This song is rather doomy sounding, but is the perfect beginning for the sounds of the rest of the album. Hypnosis leads gracefully into the next track,

Pestilence. This song is hard and driving. With distorted vocals, done by Sitras, this song sounds sinister and evil. Perhaps it is, just a bit.

Next is Let them Die, probably my favorite song on the entire disc. The chorus is catchy, and I find myself singing it at really odd times.

The rest of the disc is equally just as upbeat and catchy, though their are only a few more songs that really stand out…Nasa’s Lullabye, State Your God, and Existe. These three songs, along with Let them Die completely carry the album.

Nasa’s Lullabye

State Your God

  1. Oooh, nice sounding album. Makes me wish I bought three CDs instead of two. Also Nasa’s Lullabye is erroring on the school computerm, but I’ll try again when I am at home. I really like the previews for this. For Greece electro-indie they’re good ^^
