…a small miracle… The strength of the formation is to produce music with a unique blend. Elements of punk, rock, pop and electro sound present, bathed in various experimentations accompanied by the singular vocals of Rodney Orpheus… Everything is there. Melodic tracks, synthesized and hovering sometimes frontal, sometimes melancholy…
THE CASSANDRA COMPLEX returns through the front door with a strong and diversified album. We did not expect so much and this gift is not ready to be forgotten as the whole is discovered over the listening. What a nice job. One of THE CASSANDRA COMPLEX ‘s best album to date! Exceptional!!!Freund, Indie Moodd
“…10 brand new and trademark songs that are similar to their past musings that put them at the tops of the genre they serve…..or better, the genre they pioneer…As for their melodies, they come up like the dusty scent of the youth in the basement clubs and the dedicated scenes of the world, catchy, romantic, and angry at times with authenticity”Mike Dimitriou, White Light / White Heat
“When you’ve lived through just about every genre that’s ever been invented – and shaped one or two along the way…
…up to date and hitting the spot with lyrically hard-hitting observations and a cynical take on the endless recycling of genres and topics.”Stephen Kennedy, Reflections of Darkness
“Hold on tight: The Cassandra Complex, one of the most influential bands of the EBM-punk-electro-industrial (yes, all that mixed up) scene of the 80s, vastly underrated in good rock guidebooks and shamefully forgotten, is back… (who has not experienced a Cassandra Complex concert has not experienced anything…). And “The Plague” lives up to all expectations!
…this album contains everything that we have always adored in the group of Rodney Orpheus, Volker Zacharias and Andy Booth.”Fred Thébault, Premonition
“Overall this is a triumphant return, a band that has earned the freedom and skill to treat their fans to a fearless and personal glimpse into the human experience in a failing system. It is my sincere hope that this is a path back for younger new fans to one of the bands that paved the way for the modern darkscene.”Ken Magerman, Sounds & Shadows
The Plague entered the German Alternative Album Chart at #2 on the first week of release!!!
Huge thanks to all of the fans, DJs, journalists etc. who made this possible.
After hitting a high at #3 in the DAC (German Alternative Charts) last week, this week Old Boys Network has slipped down to #10. That’s 4 weeks in the Singles chart so far, which is pretty good going!
“…underlines the great Gothic elegance, which this band has always been capable of. The “Plague” is far more than a due comeback, but already a classic in the history of the band”https://www.musix.de/audimix/cassandra-complex-plague
