'Austin, Texas based electro/gothic performance band, Lucid Dementia have released their strongest work to date, Trickery. Incorporating an incredibly distinctive and almost childlike element in their music, Lucid Dementia's work has a sort of sing-along feel, but with a very dark edge. Very easy to remember rhyming lyrics run throughout the album and at times feel like they belong to campfire songs for the Goth Scouts or to some really bizarre nursery rhymes. This style is all the more unique and interesting when the subject matter of many of the songs is sociopolitical commentary, harshly casting a spotlight on subjects such as religion, the war, and the faults of society in general. Using a combination of raspy male vocals and sweet, almost juvenile, female vocals, the two styles play off of each other quite well and give the music a wonderfully manic feel. With electronic and gothic soundscapes that seem perfectly tailored to the various vocal styles, Lucid Dementia is best described as a less 'funk' influenced 'A Daisy Chain 4 Satan' era My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult.' -REGEN Magazine.
