Swan Christy  


This interesting Greek band has been around for a few years, recording on the Black Lotus label since their debut in 1998. The only album reviewed here is their third, 2001's Black Is The White Color. Black slots vaguely in the gothic metal genre, but they aren't as heavy-handed as many in that field, going for a more relaxed, accessible sound -- perhaps dark rock/metal is a better term for this band. By all accounts the band underwent a major style change on their later albums Julian and A Decent Album, presumably in a less metallic direction. As of this writing a new album, A Band Apart, has been completed, but without a set release date as they haven't found a new label since Black Lotus' folding.
