In a remarkably short span of time Artaud Seth has managed to catapult his MERCIFUL NUNS to the top of the international Goth rock scene. His music is reminiscent of the great old Gothic genre but at the same time it is Gothic rock reincarnated. The sound is powerful and convincing, the guitars delicate and Artaud’s voice is hypnotically unrelenting and filled with melancholic desperation which ultimately creates a dark atmosphere that seems to have been absent in the scene for too long. Merciful Nuns are genuine and classic Goth and thus a balm for the souls of those who are tormented by Cybergoth and Future Pop. Everything sounds like back in the glory days but actually even better. Merciful Nuns‘ songs are profound in their contents, accomplished in their compositions and nearly every track has what it takes to be a classic.
