Hi Penthus was the 1st album I released under the moniker ‘The Mad Pride’. While free downloads of the songs were previously available, I recently decided to upload higher quality versions (320 kbps). I also fixed the ID3 tags which were not accurate in the mp3s which I originally uploaded back in 2010. The new mp3s can be freely downloaded from The Hi Penthus set on Soundcloud.

Delarue from the New York Music Daily reviewed a few of my songs recently. Scapegoat was described as a “swirly, creepy 6/8 anthem, psychedelic 60s gone noir cabaret with 80s goth production: watery guitars, icy keys and vintage Bowie-esque vocals”. The analysis of Berserkergang was “quavery/whispery goth vocals over reverberating Radiohead-style electric piano”. I also enjoyed the part which read: “Out to Sea is basically Michael Hurley’s Werewolf redone as late 70s Bowie; the real stunner on the page is Malice, an absolutely evil chromatic piano anthem, like Blonde Redhead at the top of their creepy mid-90s game.”

What a review! You can read the whole thing here: http://newyorkmusicdaily.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/madpride/
