REBIRTH is a collection of 35 new international artists mainly playing Traditional Goth Rock with a touch of new Gothic Coldwave and Deathrock tracks added for good measure. All artists featured have a Post-Punk sound reminiscent of Goth Rock's heyday. With this compilation we want to show the world that Goth is NOT dead and that it's being resurrected globally by a plethora of new artists, as is Post-Punk in general.
In recent years there's been a lot of confusion as to what is goth and what is not so we thought it'd be great to take it back to it's roots as have these artists. It seems there is a strong desire to bring underground genres like this back to its founding influences and that is what many of these artists have done.
Something that sets this apart from the early Goth Rock releases is that you will find most of these artists while maintaining true to the genre's roots have produced much cleaner, crisper sounds using modern equipment while maintaining the same edge of early punk roots often shown in Deathrock especially. What you hear is a much more professional recording while still having that DIY often punk rock feel.
