The album suddenly wakes up the goth in me,or at least the goth who likes slow, deep and gloomy music. I'm often reminded of acts like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (in 'Hunger'), Dead Can Dance or Cocteau Twins (in Pilgrimage' and 'Enchant') or even martial industrial acts like Puissance or Arditi. That being said, 'Dream Map' combines the percussive nature of martial industrial with the dark rock music of acts like Rome or Der Blutharsch. It's followed by the gentle vintage electronics of old school Kraftwerk or Tangerine Dream. Hell, even Pink Floyd seems to be lurking around the corner.
Want more? Well, add psychedelic drone acts like Master Musicians Of Bukkake or Om to the mix and you'll be very close to what you can hear on this brilliant album. In fact, I can help but include Einsturzende Neubauten to the whole thing. Yet, most of all, this simply is a prime example of the things bands are capable of when they go all-out, smash all genre-restrictions and simply do whatever they feel like. Don't let all the names I mentioned stop you from checking out this piece of musical genius. Don't let your opinion on any of these acts affect your desicion to buy it. Just go ahead, engulf yourself in the strange and captivating music of Sink. You'll probably be as stunned as I am right now.
