A blend of opera, punk, noise and lyrical romanticism including vocal performances by Marc Almond, David Tibet and Ernesto Tomasini. The long-awaited debut album from the "enfant terrible" of the alternative music scene is finally here. "Digital Angel" is an atypical debut album with vocal performances by Marc Almond, David Tibet and Ernesto Tomasini and works that defy any pre-existing musical genre, "Digital Angel" is the manifestation of a challenging, bold and yet sensitive artistic vision. With pieces mainly, though not only, for voice and piano and with the producing cut to a minimum, Othon's album has an intimate and almost live quality. His compositions - a blend of opera, punk, noise and lyrical romanticism - form a proof of a rich and distinctive musical language. His songs, which deal with themes such as desperate love, human bio-chipping, addiction to violence and 2012, can equally form a soundtrack to a passionate love story and a post-apocalyptic nightmare. "Digital Angel"'s original artwork and photography is by Hector de Gregorio. Including a cover of Aleister Crowley's "The Tango Song", the first time this song has ever been released; 1 track features Anok Pe Current 93's David Tibet on vocals, covering Coil's "The Dreamer is still Asleep"; and 4 tracks feature Ernesto Tomasini on vocals.
