Now The House Of Usher return after many line-up changes, with the single “Reincarnation” ( “I Won’t let It End (The Wedding Dance)” as a b side).
This single is a limited to 500 vinyl copies edition and can be ordered directly via Equinoxe-Records for 10,- Euros (shipping within Germany) and 12,- Euros (shipping abroad). Shipping and packaging is included in the prices. Orders can be made in dropping an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Reincarnation” is a wonderful song with a catchy chorus, Missionesque guitars and aetherial vocals.
B-side, “I won’t Let it End” is a dreamy dancy tune made to take the listener to a distant land.
“Reincarnation” gives an idea about what will follow on the band’s forthcoming full length album, “Inauguration”.
Apart from singer Jörg Kleudgen, Tom O’Connell (Traumtanzer/Garden of Delight) on guitars and keyboards (who also mixed, produced and mastered this release) and Lars Kappeler (Sweet Ermengarde) on drums and bass.
