is not gothic death metal, but I bet all Theatre of Tragedy fans know
that by now. They also know that the Theatre is constantly changing, never
letting itself be bound down in one form. Sure, the electronica that the
band has grown fond of is still here on "Assembly". But the
record is so much more. From the industrial punk-metal on "Universal
Race", to the electro-gothic "Let You Down" and the ambient
pop-song "Motion", "Assembly" is an extremely varied
album. This is its strength, but also its weakness.
