Cardillac Complex stand for dark melodic rock somewhere between gothic and metal, alternative and pop. For songs full of melodic radiance, heartpounding melancholy and energetic low-jerk, in short: Dark Melodic Rock! Five years after "Forgotten Reasons", the quintet from Münster is going to release their debut album "Something Will Remain" on Echozone in May 2018. Since the foundation in 2010, Cardillac Complex (pronounced: cardiac complex) have gathered a loyal fan base in their hometown of Münster (Germany). They also played as support for German industrial metal heroes Stahlmann and did well reaching the final rounds of several local bandcompetitions. "Forgotten Reasons", their debut EP, got good reviews in many print and online magazines in the gothic scene and beyond.

In addition, Cardillac Complex tend towards prog and post rock structures on "Something Will Remain" including repetitive sound walls and intricate 5/8 and 6/8 beats - all the while keeping a catchy pop tune within reach. Stylistic variety as a principle - the musical dozen is wrapped within a dark and thoughtful atmosphere. However, Cardillac Complex are certainly not in any way depressive. Having a strong penchant for a touch of melancholy, songs like "Yesterday's Burden" convey in no uncertain terms to leave everything negative behind you despite all the hardships of life.
