Album Review: De Arma, "Lost, Alien, and Forlorn"

Out July 2 on German label Trollmusic, De Arma's debut full-length Lost, Alien, and Forlorn is worth hearing. It mixes depressing, eighties-style goth material similar to Killing Joke, with lots of very lightly distorted guitars playing single strings that ring out in minor scales. I'm hearing a big Agalloch influence too. The vocals are comprised of both quality, harmonized singing and some black metal screams.
