Paul Roland - Burnt Orchids (1985)

Fatalistic, folk-inflected, darkly political new wave. Lands in a perfect sweet-spot between morbid post-punk (think The Sound), atmospheric new wave (think The Church), and even some of the more accessible neofolk (think Rome.)

Track listing:
1. Death Or Glory
2. Burnt Orchids
3. The Puppet Master
4. Captain Blood
5. Cairo
6. Green Glass Violins
7. Funhouse
8. Ghost Ships
9. Dr. Strange [bonus]
10. Madelaine (Remix) [bonus]
11. Berlin [bonus]

To the valley of the kings
