Dark, Fatalistic, Dreamy - Music to cut your wrists to

Requiem' is my first experience with the Kronos Quartet, and what an experience. I'm locked in, an avid fan of anyone who can produce music this dark and dreary, while still providing enough energy licks to pull the knife away from my wrist occasionally.

Goth may be dark at times, and The Cure owns the field for exasperating despair and loneliness in their music, but 'Requiem' takes Dark to a new level. This is an original score, no lyrics to tease you into the direction the artist wants you to go, simply music that reaches out its shadowy hand and pulls you into the pit with it.

'Requiem' has managed to paint the languid contentment of heroin highs alongside the razor-shivering anguish of withdrawals, the racy ecstasy of diet-pill mania and the nightmarish paranoia of medication-induced delusions. This score has painted the spiral of addiction into notes of realism rarely found in a musical score, using a unique form of what I like to call "Classical Electronica".

You will actually feel the hopelessness and despair, will pace as far as your headphones allow, wondering if this world is worth living in. I can't say enough good things about this powerful Score, other than you had better be a fan of dark music before picking up a copy. Otherwise, you might find a knife pressed to your wrist. Enjoy!
