Indie Moodd reviews The Plague

…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!!!

WL//WH Review: “The Plague” is the remarkable new album by THE CASSANDRA COMPLEX

“…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

Reflections of Darkness reviews The Plague

“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


First review of The Plague en francais…

“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


The Plague review in Sounds & Shadows

“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.”
