Thanatos' goals changed greatly from Spider-Man 2099#13 ("Devastate [the] world of 2099) to Captain Marvel V#30 ("I will be the ULTIMATE Rick Jones") I assume this is related to the fact that the ID was revealed in Captain Marvel and not a 2099 book.

The addition of Tucker's industrial-tinged sound manipulations has made a huge difference to the Thanatos sound, moving it from the mournful, trapped-in-a-dark-corner acoustic tunes of This Endless Night Inside and much of An Embassy to Gaius to a more in-your-face industrialized rock attack.

 Thanatos : This Endless Night Inside
To say that Thanatos is "alternative" does the artists a great disservice by lumping their music in with a lot of bad crap, but to say Thanatos is just Gothic would simply be a lie.
Thanatos is all across the board with this disc, there are many acoustic driven songs, vocal dependent songs, songs that seem to be on this recording for their humor value.
The only song I have a disliking for is "Thanatos," which is beginning to make me wonder if I just happen to have a personal problem with all of Projekt's self-titled songs (although the title track is one of the best).

In the case of Terri Schiavo, the passion with which both sides of the argument are fighting suggests its origins lie in, and are fueled by, unconscious drives.
Terri Schiavo's death is an endorsement of death as the default position in cases where the wishes of the patient are not and can not be known.
Libido always falls before Thanatos; the strength of the Libido wanes throughout the life cycle, and while the passion that arises from Thanatos may weaken (rage is an emotion for the young and begins to diminsh by middle age), its expression is certain in the end.

It is thanatos, the urge toward a calming death that drowns all care, sorrow, useless striving, and bitter hopefulness.
Fittingly, this word (with an echoing Italian translation called into the air) is the last sound of the film that Lang is making and the film that Godard has made.
The sea and the screen will now be as silent as the ill-starred lovers whom a thundering thanatos ex cinema has ushered into a quieter, calmer realm.
