Raindrops Darkwave, Electro Eminence of Darkness The label Life is Painful Records is mostly famous for being behind more electronic releases with bands like Dupont and Restricted Area, but now they give themselves into releasing a band that according to them plays Electro Darkwave. I on the other hand think it's some kind of dark, greasy pop and I have quite a problem with understanding what music-category they would fit in to. It's to dark to fit the ones who like pop and to pop for the ones who like gothrock. This production smells demo recording with garage mastering and is similar with the most of what almost every label receives in their mail every now and then. The singer Lars Schulz doesn't do a nice job and most of the time makes your ears quiver of discomfort. There isn't any track I really like besides the third track "Gedankenraus" were they have let the female singer, Juliane Richter do the whole singing and it's quite well produced even though I probably would zap it right by on MTV.
