Review: Bella Morte – Songs For The Dead
National Music Reviews
SONGS FOR THE DEAD
I’ve never bought into the idea that Bella Morte were a traditional goth band; they always seemed a bit more based in punk rock and Songs for the Dead emphasizes that by turning down the keyboards and upping the guitars for a sound that is more representative of their live shows. Songs For The Dead, however, is not a disappointment; they’re still a fantastic catchy group with this collection of tracks that have an energy to them that is missing from the majority of punk since its “rebirth” a decade ago.
