Alexander Dust is the lead singer and mastermind of the Goth/Dark Wave Band ALSO that enjoyed certain cult status as “one of Germany´s better-kept secrets” (Mick Mercer in the Goth Bible) during the 90s.

Although ALSO didn´t officially split up, Alexander Dust started working as a Solo artist, releasing “Dust to Dust” in 2010 which was followed by “You New Me” in 2011. After founding the Label “Painful Scream Records“, he released “Cross the Bridge Turn the Page” in 2013. It is also planned to make the ALSO back catalogue available for the first time in digital form.

This started with the CD “Locked in a cold Room 1990-2001”, followed by several downloadable Reissues on Bandcamp.

Firmly rooted in the Goth Rock tradition of bands like The Wake, Nosferatu, and The Fields of the Nephilim, Sonsombre evokes the sound and feel of the early 90’s second wave.  Founding member, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Brandon Pybus is a long-time veteran of the metal underground, with more than 12 releases to date with bands such as Lycanthropy, Eye of the Sun, Suhgurim, Shield Breaker, and Wytch Goat.   In 2016, with a desire to return to the melodic roots and sounds of the classic Goth bands that shaped the genre, but with a nod to modern classics such as NFD, Sonsombre was conceptualized. 

Several songs were recorded but not released.  Then, in early 2018 the concept was resurrected and more songs were recorded.  As the project took shape, “A Funeral For The Sun” emerged.  In the hopes that this release would re-create the feelings and emotions listening to bands like Suspiria, The Sisters of Mercy, Rosetta Stone, and the like, the decision was made to release the record independently and with no conception of how it would be received.  Fortunately, the response was immediate and positive, with many DJs, podcasters, and Goth Rock fans from around the globe expressing their appreciation for the spirit and execution of “A Funeral For The Sun”. 

Oskar TerramortisPost Gothic records will release “A Funeral For The Sun” as a limited edition digi-pak in January of 2019.  The body of Oskar’s work from Gothic Music Records and Post Gothic records make this a perfect fit.  Sonsombre is currently working on a follow-on album tentatively scheduled for release in the Spring of 2019 and is preparing for live dates throughout 2019 in support of these releases.

let us meet them at the center of all
you go the way as many masons before
the 34th degree you adore
be a Shriner on a sacred door
arms outstretched
wake me from this dream
all honor to Enoch
ask, seek, knock

blue lodge
lost in depths of blue
blue lodge
Enoch shines for you… alone

we’ll meet them on the level, my sisters
with the light of thirty-three thousand suns
open up the door for a feminine divine law
and turning back the master masons clock

blue lodge
lost in depths of blue
blue lodge
Enoch shines for you… alone

let me be ancient and free

keep me within the lesser lights
keep me within the lesser lights
keep me within the lesser lights
for the sun, the moon
and the master‘s delight… alone
