Abney Park: Welcome To The Park

  1. Vengeance
  2. Abney Park

This two song demo is meant to serve as a quick look into the world of this Gothic tinged Seattle act. The first track 'Vengeance' fuses moody masculine vocals with wafty female vocals wrapped around light guitar, electronic drums, and minimal atmosphere. The second track 'Abney Park' starts out with a slightly out of place ethnic sample then flows into structured electronics that changes into a very Rockish piece. As a whole, the band exhibits remarkable compositional and studio skills. Both tracks are crisply arranged, recorded and executed. The only thing that confuses me is that their web page calls them an Electronica act, which they are not. I can't help but wonder if the band has gone through a recent line-up change?
