Nocturne - Guide To Extinction Review
by Eric Bodrero

Guide To Extinction is the latest album from Dark-Wave/Industrial pirates Nocturne fronted by Lacey Connor, who have seen a spike in popularity in the goth/industrial scene by opening up for such bands as Course of Empire and Marilyn Manson, and on bills with other bands like Ministry, Thrill Kill Cult, Pigface, and Electric Hellfire Club. Joined by programmer Chris Telkes and jack-of-all-trades instrumentalist Ivan McRoy, Nocturne continues their grave pounding of goth-heavy themes and haunting, ghastly atmospherics in thirteen new tracks to disturb your senses.

Much of the band's aggressive sound remains intact on Extinction, which includes jolting, slamming guitar hooks coupled with intense drum machine programming and growling, creepy, and sometimes screaming vocals. Most of the tracks here are surprisingly catchy, usually conjuring up images of dark, dead and dying, everything a goth and industrial lover has come to expect. The moods usually switch from pure hostility and rage to melancholic grief and lament, in a sinister sort of way.

The production is clean and fluid, the pacing well done, and the tracks are all as tight and smooth as a woven bamboo urn. Lacey's vocals are really very impressive, coming off sounding like a female version of Rob Zombie. Take that how you will. Nocturne is definitely not for everybody, and listeners wanting to try out the industrial/goth music scene will certainly get a good initiating by Nocturne's aggressive and loud delivery. Guide To Extinction furthers this popular bands uprising and positions them one step closer to industrial goth gods, if they aren't there already.
