[216] Carpe Noctum / The Library, 03/10/2015, Leeds, GB


Dead Eyes Opened
Dawn of Elysium

RHOMBUS surely need no introduction. Mixing male and female vocals with swirling guitars, driving bass and electric violin, they combine some of the best elements of traditional 80s/90s UK Goth, with their own modern, upbeat approach. In addition to their studio indulgences, they’ve cultivated an exceptional reputation for their live performance, winning over audiences and powering the party, whether it be in an intimate club venue or from a festival stage.

DEAD EYES OPENED: a mash-up of latter-day Depeche Mode, a noisier Sisters, Dreamtime era Cult, and a bit of Killing Joke. With some raucous guitars. And a pop song sensibility. The song is king after all.

Leeds/Bradford goth rockers DAWN OF ELYSIUM launch their debut album at this month’s Carpe Noctum. Always local favourites with their mix of classic and contemporary goth sounds, this will no doubt be a very special gig.

CARPE NOCTUM is the notorious dark alternative club that began life in Bradford’s 1 in 12 Club, sixteen years and one day ago. Our DJs will keep you dancing and drinking till 2am with the patent mix of goth, post-punk, industrial and “stuff”.

Doors 7pm, bands onstage around 7:30-10pm, with the club night following till 2am. Admission is just £5 on the door all night.
