Cinemascope is a Greek dark/cold/synth wave
band and also the brainchild of Leo Skiadas, a well
known dark alternative club / radio dj and concert
promoter of the Greek underground / dark alternative
scene. And even though Leo is a man with an updated
music taste listening and promoting a lot of various
music styles when it comes to Cinemascope his love
for the wave music of the 80’s is what prevails.
So, it is not a secret that Cinemascope‘s debut
album Stains of Love has it’s roots at the 80’s
wave bands. On tracks like Never Understand, Each
Time, So Cold Inside or Sounds of Revelation you may
notice some Cure, Danse Society, Depeche Mode or early
4AD references while on “Better days to Come”
- a financial crisis inspired song about politicians
killing all hope of a whole generation – you
can hear the minimal aggressive sound of today.
One of the highlights and one of the biggest surprises
on Stains of Love is the electro / wave song Five
More Minutes in which the one and only Ronny Moorings
of the legendary Clan of Xymox sings the lead vocals!
And what a great honor for Cinemascope that is to
have a guest vocalist like him on their debut album!
Stains of Love is an album that deals with desperate
people. People that straggle to find the power to
move on with their lives but they are always condemned
to be left behind. People that want to scream but
they only whisper.
Stains of Love conceived from 2009 to 2011 on Dust
Room Studio and will be released on 2014 on Wave Records.
