Born For Bliss / Press

“BORN FOR BLISS was founded in 1994 and it deserved popularity among lovers of the first wave of gothic rock or new wave. But it should be said that the band’s music also contains the echoes of clear dark wave, musical complexity typical for PINK FLOYD and melodic effects of pop rock. It feels like we become witnesses of birth and development of new style which is hard to find now in its original form because of the intensive infusions of dark electro and industrial. Maybe that’s why it’s so pleasant to listen to ‘Between Living & Dreaming’: live guitars, crystal piano passages, unobtrusive symphonic arrangements, rather diverse drums, deep heartfelt vocals and accessible lyrics make a listener forget of the reality at least for about 75 minutes however all the compositions are so impressive that could remain in one’s memory much longer then that. BORN FOR BLISS created a peculiar work indeed which is worthy to listen to again and again. 9.3 out of 10 points!”

“Frank Weyzig used to be one of the original members of Clan Of Xymox. For some reasons Frank left the band and some years later he came back with Born For Bliss. In 1997 there was the release of their debutalbum "Flowing with the flue", Two years later the band had a second album "Between Living & dreaming". The big frustration was that back then not one label was interested in releasing this album, until now as the German Echozone-label decided to give it a release. Mind you, Born For Bliss aren't back as Frank is now playing with White Rose Transmission, the band from Carlo Van Putten and the sadly missed Adrian Borland. It's a shame this album never got released as once again Born For Bliss are bringing psychedelic goth-rockwave that sometimes (hey that's strange) refers to The Sound, at other times (true is true) to the Xymoxsound. You got the picture? This is a brilliant gothwaverecord that finally deserves to see the lights. Oooh in love with a ten year old album.”
