 Metropolis Records: Clan of Xymox
In 1999, Clan of Xymox signed on with Metropolis Records, and delivered "Creatures" to a public that had been waiting for the true follow-up to 1985's "Clan of Xymox" album for 14 years.
Metropolis's second studio album by the Clan of Xymox was 2001's "Notes from the Underground." It combined haunting yet atmospheric synth lines with dark rhythms, powerful beats and lively guitar strumming to yield a release based on agony and anguish caused by being disconnected from society.
Clan of Xymox spent the two years following "Notes from the Underground" to work on their next record, "Farewell," which was released in 2003.

 Clan of Xymox: album reviews and ratings
Ronny admits that the "Xymox was in a real identity crisis" at that time, and this crisis extended through the first part of the 90s with the release of Metamorphosis in 1992 and Headclouds in 1993.
Fortunately for the old Clan of Xymox veterans, Ronny came back to his senses and produced the album Hidden Faces in 1997 returning to the old name of the band CLAN OF XYMOX, hence sending a sign to goth and dark music lovers that this album was a logical follow-up to Medusa...
With 'Liberty' Clan of Xymox re-discover their early 4AD-style as well as they consequently re-develop the tunes they delivered with the last two albums 'Hidden faces' and 'Creatures'.

Nebudem ďaleko od pravdy ak si dovolím tvrdiť, že by bolo hriechom vnímať Clan Of Xymox iba skrz škatuľku gothic rocku, i keď ich imidž - na bledo namaľované tváre a čierne kostýmy - evokovali práve tento "lifestyle".

 Clan Of Xymox
Xymox were now not only inhabiting the arthouse but filling dancefloors in the more discerning clubs.

Being the latest in the legacy of the Clan of Xymox, "Farewell" yields club-friendly songs sitting comfortably along side moody atmospheric tracks to create a hybrid which can only remotely be described as Dark Goth Electro.

 Clan Of Xymox: Liberty/Live/Subsequent Pleasures
After a number of years and several groundbreaking recordings that still generate the bizarre rumblings that emanate from below the surface, Clan of Xymox have finally returned with a long sought live recording that captures them at their spiritually sensuous best.
The "Clan" has undergone many transformations since their early '80s inception but one thing has always remained a constant-their ability to deliver soulful, melodic, imaginatively dark gothic music that's stirred the passion in many a follower since their humble beginnings.
The still rough around the edges trio, as they were, led by guitarist/vocalist Ronny Moorings, originally recorded these tracks back in 1984 on their own label and intended for an initial run of only 500 copies made available to the public.

 REVIEW: Clan of Xymox – “Creatures”
Clan of Xymox's 1997 album, Hidden Faces, marked the abandonment of the pop-strocities committed during the band's stint as Xymox (the most atrocious of which was a travesty of an album known as Metamorphosis).
With the release of the new album, Creatures, Clan of Xymox have managed to fully assimilate the old with the new and still add a few other surprises into the mix as well.
In saying this, I am not going so far as to accuse Clan of Xymox of attempting to emulate The Sisters of Mercy (after all, I did say only a *few* classes), but I will point out that I find the album's opener, Jasmine and Rose, to be highly reminiscent of The Sisters' Black Planet.

 TrouserPress.com :: Clan of Xymox
On The Clan of Xymox, the right components are present but the record is disappointingly short on personality.
Despite three alternating vocalists (deeply anguished to breathlessly fragile), jutting electric and acoustic guitars, sinewy bass and a wealth of synths, Clan of Xymox can't seem to make anything extraordinary happen, and only three songs approach memorability.
As easily endurable as this album is, Xymox — here revealed as just another lightweight electronic dance band of the post-romantic era — still lacks any compelling personality.

 Splendid Magazine reviews Clan of Xymox: The Best of...
For twenty years, Clan of Xymox and its mutations have operated in the shadows of the gothic genre.
On this collection, with the band's output laid end to end, it's possible to see a progression and variation that is often buried on individual albums.
Furthermore, by touching on the warm ("Consolation") and the harsh ("Innocent"), the disc admirably demonstrates why Xymox have survived despite the genre's ever-changing tastes.

So I feel Hidden Faces connects better with the 4 AD period, so you could say it is the 3rd album of Clan of Xymox.
That's why there is already on Phoenix an indication of moving towards a sort of dance area, which was coming up in the UK in the early 90's.(Even the Cure got caught with their Mixed Up album) Metamorphosis and Headclouds are just a follow up on that general mood everyone was in.
I started Xymox in Amsterdam with releasing Subsequent Pleasures on my own label.(1984)Of course I wanted to tour, so I asked my at the time girlfriend Anke to play the bass live and sing on one of my tracks of Subsequent.Pleasures.and my former roommate Pieter to play the keyboard.
