Mandragora Scream is without question one of the most prominent groups on the contemporary gothic rock/dark wave scene. Their amazing releases include all the best elements of the genre, resulting in unforgettable musical experiences that touch the deepest parts of the soul. With this exclusive re-issue of "Fairy Tales From Hell's Caves" you will find yourself in a world of infinite beauty, clothed in joy, sorrow and melancholy... The group's debut LP was officially released on July 9th, 2001. "Fairy Tales From Hell's Caves" was a concept album, telling the story of Virgil, who descends all the way down to the Dantean Hell, where he meets a mysterious vampire fairy. Presented in a form slightly similar to a Gothic opera, the album managed to combine metal heaviness with a sublime and delicate mood, allowing all imagination to break loose. The atmospheric keyboard passages and melodramatic vocals by Morgan Lacroix and Terry Horn brought a truly enchanting mixture, full of beauty and passion. The highlights of the album are "Fire Tear Drop", "Brain Storm", "Cryin' Clouds", and the eerie "Little Zombies", as well as the touching ballad "Child Of The Moon". Some reviewers called this album a middle ground between Cradle of Filth and The Cranberries (!), while others praised it for its unique atmosphere. Mandragora Scream's debut LP to this day remains a dazzling release, perfectly capturing the essence of gothic rock. New digipak edition, limited to numerated 2000 copies, digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.
