Subterfuge first made a name for themselves as part of the original batch of Australian 2nd generation goth bands in the early 1990s and after all these years they are still active. Their latest offering is a 6 track CD EP and opens up with a gothed up cover version of the classic 1983 Soft Cell song. This new mini-album delivers all that you’d want and expect from Subterfuge, guitar based goth rock with customary deep vocals which are very natural and never trying. Combine that with their subtle use of keyboards and a distinguished dark melodic quality ensues. Heat is limited to 200 copies only with each one hand numbered. Subterfuge front man Clifford is also a member of fellow Australian goth stalwarts IKON.
