Orphanage - Driven (CD)
Release Date: 12/01/09
One of the most influential Dutch Gothic metal bands. Re-release of their album from 2004 in a new digipak edition.
Orphanage was probably one of the most influential Dutch Gothic metal bands, until their split up in 2005. 'Driven', Orphanage's final album from 2004, is by far the group's greatest work, showcasing brilliance in every aspect. The amazing mixture of raw, edgy guitars with gloomy, atmospheric keyboard passages, backed with a magnificent collaboration of Oosthoek's growling and Van Der Aa's beautiful singing brought over an hour of truly enchanting Gothic metal. With such top-notch compositions as 'The Sign', 'Dead Grounds' and the instrumental 'Black Gate', Orphanage proved their ability to write sophisticated, almost progressive music, perfectly joining heaviness and melody. This exclusive re-release is a must-have for every fan of dark, atmospheric music... New digipak edition is limited to 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on a golden disc.
