— STRAP ON HALO craft elegant minimalism that gives a solid hat tip to goth and French coldwave, yet succeeds in pushing the genre into a lyrically driven, ethereal space that is dream inducing and haunted in equal measure.

Aaron the Audiophile of 53rd and 3rd Magazine has said of the band, “STRAP ON HALO sounds as if they recorded their session in a smokey underworld dungeon, but doesn’t rely on horrific imagery to sell their mission statement. Instead, they focus on an eerie groove and moody atmosphere to paint an audio picture of both gloom and beauty.”

The trio draw comparisons to FAITH AND THE MUSE, SWITCHBLADE SYMPHONY and SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES. They are revered and recognized as veterans of the 90’s second wave of the gothic rock resurgence. Known for their mesmerizing
performances and beautifully produced albums, Miranda Yardly of Terrorizer magazine has said of the 2011 full length, The Dead Don’t Lie… “Lenore is a stand out track for me, I can’t get it out of my head. Even if I could, I’d want it back on, just for the drum machine alone. If you could bottle this song, I’d take a crateful, that cold 90’s sound injected with a smidgeon of sexiness…”

— ADRIAN H AND THE WOUNDS are your post-goth storytellers.
The immediate reference of their dark, brooding music with lyrics of great narrative power and poetic bent draw to mind references such as NICK CAVE, GARY NUMAN, LOU REED, but they are eclectic enough to keep on with this referencing further on and it would be better and more exact just to say that they’ve blended and absorbed all and out came their own superb poignant dark-wave style. Adrian H and The Wounds have a sound that is sinfully soulful and reminiscent of a night in a darkroom full of hallucinations, secrets and song. Adrian's voice and lyrics cut like a straight edge. He evokes impassioned stories of tragic love, lost faith and twisted taboos.
