Garden of Delight
Published in 1994, Necromanteion IV is regarded as one of the most pivotal and best-sold Goth Rock albums of the 90's. The critically acclaimed Necromanteion IV revealed a distinctive combination of atmospheric sounds, powerful guitar riffs and occult themes permuted in a clear deep voice which casts an inescapable spell over the listener. Back then GARDEN OF DELIGHT appeared harder than usual. Especially a number like SPIRIT INVOCATION has such a stunning impact that blasts the raised spirits straight back into Hades. Already lauded as an all time cult-hit the equally expressive title track NECROMANTEION creates an eerily intriguing atmosphere with its haunting keyboard blanket that permeates into the beautiful DOWNWARD TO A SEA. Necromanteion IV is an all-round atmospheric product, assured by the quality of its individual songs and in its epic entirety. A milestone in G.O.D.'s history.
The current re-mastered version exhibits the original studio album in a new sound! By applying the most up-date studio technology alongside the original sound equipment the primary focus remained firmly on the best possible re-creation of the original analogue recordings and thus resulting in the most authentic match for the sound quality which has distinguished this music since its inception and original publication in the 90's.
