Gezeiten - _Demo CD 2003_
by: Pedro Azevedo (1.5 out of 5)
Somewhere in the realm of gothic metal wanders a German band called Gezeiten in search of a record label that will sign them. What arguments do they present to justify getting signed? Well, some would argue their melodic, keyboard-driven, very slightly heavy approach is pretty marketable these days. Add German lyrics, gothic clean vocals and techno-ish elements to the mix -- hey, now we're getting higher in the marketing scale, this could even sound a bit like Rammstein! In addition, the demo is decently produced and adequately played, which is also quite useful. In all seriousness however, I don't think I can find a single good riff or interesting original passage in this demo. The act of putting together a few elements that seem likely to sell doesn't spontaneously create good music, and this demo is a fine example of that rule. Some of the material is downright atrocious, while most of it just wallows in mediocrity; only a small minority can be rated as average. Not that any of the above necessarily means Gezeiten won't eventually end up with a label deal...
