  • Like them better than Magma and Fen.
  • Ardeur is the best to me! And one of the best zeuhl albums I've heard.

  • They really should not have reunited, their new stuff sucks so hard
  • "In an move towards accessibility they discard the Kobaian lyrics" HA! if accessibility is what they wanted they are playing the wrong music. ESKATON are amazing.
