"Legend was released in January 1994 as a collection of early recordings. It contained selective songs from the Nosferatu singles "Hellhound EP", "Vampyres Cry", "Diva" & "Inside The Devil"."

Just look at the song titles - do I need to go on? Add words like 'bats', 'black', 'night' and 'blood' and you could about write the song title history of Gothic music. Again, this isn't a bad group for such a large cauldron that so many have already pissed in. The opening track is rather hooky, and seems to mention 'Lemon Sole' as being a subject worth singing about (:)). With a voice which sounds afraid of it's own ... er ... shadow, this group fit the rigidly-defined archetype of what a Goth band are supposed to be - dark, tremolo'd and set to a relatively character-bleached, drama-dyed-black reverb-y sombre Rock sound. Without doubt they can compose a handy little ditty - there's plenty here that will become familiar after only a couple of plays, and you may find yourself humming various pieces to yourself as you play it more and more.
This is marketed as "A Collection Of Early Recordings" - so presumably they went on to record some material which is more familiar to those into Goth. Don'y be put off by the 'early' title - it's quality stuff, and if not scorching the ceiling, it's at least boiling something on the backburner.
