The line-up problems are like yesterday's snow: Rob Vitacca enriches with his charisma and his chameleon-like voice the well balanced Gothic Rock of the Southern Germans. Hit potential and depth effect aren't excluded.

Never change a winning team? At least star producer, John Fryer (HIM, Nine Inch Nails, Paradise Lost) stuck to the chart-spoilt, German Gothic-Rockers. Inside the band, some changes were inevitable: interim singer, Peter Kafka still plays the bass, the previously unknown Rob Vitacca replaced Christopher Schmid. No easy task one should think but the only 21-year-old is a raw diamond growing by the grind of Fryer. Many songs suggest more than one singer, that's how easy Rob changes from a Pete Steele tomb-intonation to rough, aggressive vocals or fragile, high tunes. Still, apart from "The shadow I once kissed", there is no duet partner in sight. "Songs for the last view" beside the usual, cool Rockers ("A pearl") offers a flashback to the band’s own Doom-roots ("Veins"), restrained Ethno flairs ("Sacrificial lamb"), beautiful, dark Pop music ("And God’s ocean") and a deep going finale with piano and smooth orchestration. Superb!
