"Peaceville Three" - tribute was proposed only in terms of the "all-female" idea in which case it would not matter that MDB has been already covered by you, as there is still potential=) And I doubt there is an easier track then this - both in terms of finding bands and for the market afterwards, and until you've established yourself, this s probably not to be underestimated=)

As for The Cure - I'm surprised that the royalties for such a band can be affordable. I doubt it's going to be a fixed rate for bands in general and it's weird that labels like theirs would be willing to even bother playing small (I've heard some major metal labels do not bother to license small vinyl batches that underground labels are willing to do because of the scale). But if it's possible, then it should not be off the counter, it's hard to find more doomy band outside of the doom spectrum (well, this might be an fanboy overstatement, hehe=)

In general - what do you find more tempting - covering a non-doom band or a doom one? The latter will be probably easier, but a non-doom one has much more potential for experimentation. Bands crossing genre boundaries is usually great. And we have superb examples of non-doom songs translated into doom "language"=)

Another option would be to have not a band-tribute, but a "thematic" tribute - group some bands based on a common theme they share. This will also give you more freedom, but you might lose focus, who knows.

That is precisely the track we're exploring... I think a tribute to The Cure won't gather enough interest among the staff members, and it's essential we all believe hard in what we do, and we also have doubts about the commercial potential of such a project.

How about Black Sabbath covers by non-trad doom bands? I could explain further but I think the idea is obvious.

I'd also vote for either a Paradise Lost or an Anathema tribute album, in the same vein as 'A Lake of Ghosts'. If MDB deserves such recognition, then surely the other two do as well, regardless of how long they've steered away from the genre. In fact, it could get really interesting if bands decided to 'doomify' the softer material of these bands.

In any case, if any of this goes through, I'd love to contribute a song with Akelei. (Sorry for the absence, still working on new album.)

Everything after Disintegration I can easily live without.

Actually, Disintegration and Bloodflowers are good... but I still prefer the early Cure...

Never understood why Bloodflowers got so much attention.

I agree, Omit's track is one of the highlights, and I think we couldn't have hoped for a better-suited opener. I'm not so much into the Hela track, on the other hand; it sounds a bit random to me.


I actually preferred Hela's contribution over Omit, and I love Omit!

I would honestly like the idea of something more broad, like a tribute album to the classic bands of death/doom and gothic/doom of the 90's; Peaceville Three, Katatonia, The Gathering, The 3rd and the Mortal, Funeral, Theatre of Tragedy, Celestial Season, etc.

there's surely something more exciting to do next than another tribute....

I barely have... the stuff I have heard didn't interest me anywhere close to anything else g0ffik I listened to so I never went back. More Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, Killing Joke, The Cult 'n' stuff for me.

Change 'The Cult' to 'Southern Death Cult' (for extra added 'I was there at the time' crediblity) and you've pretty much nailed Gothic for me - apart from the unforgivable failure to mention the Neph and The Mission.
But The Cure, ahahaha, Bob Smith was always a New Romantic popstar c*nt at heart, though it perhaps took 'Friday...' to irrevocably prove that. Nick Cave, from The Birthday Party's 'Release The Bats' onwards, had more Goth talent in his little finger than The Cure put into their entire output...
Sincerely, a biased but contemporay individidual :D

Southern Death Cult... now we are talking... I never really considered The Cure "goth"... for me, it was Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, the Mission, Death in June... never been much into The Neph, though... And Also The Trees were pretty good too...

Apart from the Sisters, THE most important Goth band, evah...!
I have loved seeing the tops of their hats over a sea of dry ice more times than I could possibly count. I'm pretty sure I once even glimpsed Carl McCoy in full :D

Would have to agree, especially the way Eldrich has behaved over the last twenty years or so. At least Carl McCoy has kept the faith so to speak, and always had a more than passable ensemble backing him up.

Anyone remember Rosetta Stone, seeing as we're being all nostalgic...?

Yep, loved 'Eye for the Main Chance' at the time. But trying to pick up any of their stuff these days is a painfully wallet-stretching experience...

By the way, abigail - since this is kinda all your fault, have you ordered a copy yet?

I'm actually curious enough to see what you reckon to the final result that I'll send you a freebie to find out! PM me with an address, if so...

They had a release called Cimmerian. I think it was a single. They were doing First amd Last and Always era Sisters style stuff a few years late! Very good though.
