Rare Norwegian 2-track cd promo in promo paper sleeve.

At this point in their career, Theatre Of Tragedy has all but eschewed their Scandinavian metal roots in a direction that is a lot closer to Siouxsie & the Banshees jamming with Ace of Base. No, that’s not a joke. Even more surprising, Theatre Of Tragedy pulls off the synth pop quite admirably. Just listen to theese two tracks and how they pay homage to the ’80s — Play sounds like the Pet Shop Boys would have sounded had they been clad in black lipstick and leather when recording “West End Girls” and “Superdrive” could have been the B-side to “Like a Virgin”; however, it also has a space-age modern feel as well, further adding to the schizophrenic nature of the Assembly album where these two tracks are taken from. Death metal growls are completely missing, and frankly, not missed.

Track list:
1. Superdrive
2. Play
