Gotha - _Take Your Soul_
by: Quentin Kalis (3 out of 5)
Gotha are an Italian band who perform Bay Area styled thrash. This is true for the first two songs, which while acceptably competent are really nothing truly exceptional and certainly do not signify any potential future greats in the making. But it is the final track which suggests that Gotha have more than one trick up their sleeves, in the form of the misleadingly entitled "Banshee": a brief song composed entirely of an evocative and melodic guitar lead. Here, Gotha demonstrate that they have the potential to develop into more then Bay Area wannabes. Although it is hardly comparable to, say, Yngwie Malmsteen in terms of technical ability, it is nonetheless incredibly atmospheric. This track alone is responsible for the addition of an additional mark to the rating above and an otherwise nondescript demo.
