For those individuals curious about what’s been brewing in the gothic metal cauldron over the past year or so, look no further than the aptly titled Beauty in Darkness Vol. 3 . Featuring previously unreleased cuts by Crematory, Moonspell, Godgory, and Darkseed, Vol. 3 previews new albums by Dimmu Borgir, Dismal Euphony, and Sculpture, as well as offering such heavyweights as the consistently brilliant My Dying Bride, the oft-compelling Anathema, and the much-overrated Cradle of Filth. Hottest number: Daemonarch’s scorching “The Seventh Daemonarch,” which features three current members of Moonspell and is nowhere near as overbearing as them. Not a bum track in the bunch, which is quite a rarity for compilations: buy this and giddily plummet into the abyss.
