After having the pleasure to see this great band live at the New Waves Day 2019 in Oberhausen, I was even more happy to get the chance for an album review. After their last album Fate came out in the year 2016 this wonderful new album called XII was issued in October 2019. The album comes in five versions such as vinyl record called VIII which is limited to 300 copies and with eight songs, glasmastered CD and in three different file formats (mp3, Wav, Flac) but with twelve songs. I must admit that I have not heard from The Arch for ages and was really surprised that they have continuously issued very good goth music. The album is mainly electronic with well set guitar play, the athmosphere is rather melancholic. It starts with a very catchy tune called Blood Chrystals followed by the song Alien Ann that also directly brings the listener to do some sort of sing along. Songs like Black Drains and Tangled Stones are very dark, slow and mystic whereas songs like Joan´s In Prison, Yoga Noise and Dark Room, my favourites besides the first two songs, are mainly danceable. Suddenly I recognised a well known voice and yes, it was Blaine L. Reininger from Tuxedomoon. In Cadaver Synod he has given his best again. But no suprise, the Nightshade team has seen him live at the W-Festival in Belgium this summer and his gig was overwhelming. What a cool idea by the guys to work togetether! The album ends with an instrumental song called Sacramental Blade which is held very simple but well, better at the end than as an intro.

All in all this is an album I can strongly recommend, the soundmixing and production is high quality and it makes one want to listen to it again and again. Good job!
