Tanz Ohne Musik – Babes Of The Abyss (2021)
A couple of years ago Tanz Ohne Musik released a 7″ through Galakthorrö. “Babes Of The Abyss” is a self released CDR. Apparently the Galakthorrö presence did open doors for new releases or there was another reason for the couple to release this themselves. When I heard of this album, the 33 copies were long gone, but you can still get the Bandcamp version.
“Babes Of The Abyss” opens with fairly soft industrial, somewhat leaning to the angstpop sound of earlier releases, but not that much. With the title track TOM returns more to the Galakthorrö sound, while some tracks bring reminiscences of the early minimal wave days.
Then towards the end we get a song-based track which is somewhat poppy (and gothic?). Would this be a reference to a changing style?
The album ends with another version of the second track “Laylah”.
“Babes Of The Abyss” is a nice album.
