This Drowning Man is a new band based around singer Roland Klein who is known in Germany for his collaboration with Sisters of Mercy icon Andrew Eldritch. The album has been released on his own CHA label and the band operates in the same vein as other eighties orientated bands like Interpol, Editors and Dead Guitars. This means that the band's sound is generally a mix of bass throb and choppy, ethereal guitar and synths, with a snare heavy mix, drawing comparisons to post-punk bands such as Joy Division, The Sound and The Chameleons. The influences from the post-punk patriarchs are still there in the Bunnymen lurches, the stark atmospherics of Joy Division and the acerbic reflection of The Teardrop Explodes. As good as the songs are themselves and the poetry of the lyrics, it is in the musicianship/instrumentation that the true accomplishment and beauty of this record really shine through the brightest. Not so long ago there was a time when music was not about bands having only one good song that you downloaded for 99 cents while the rest of the album was pretty much ignored. In this day and age of MP3 players and shuffled play lists, This Drowning Man's debut album stands in complete defiance of the idea that bands can't create an album of 10 songs that are every bit just as good as the other and flow perfectly from one song to the next. From beginning to end, This Drowning Man have succeeded in evoking a larger and greater experience that having only one good song can't even begin to compare with. It is for the lack of albums like this that the record industry's sales are at an all-time low.
