"Nada! Yet embodies the creative pinnacle of Death in June. At the time, the group already rests on the shoulders of the duo Douglas Pearce and Patrick Leagas, Tony Wakeford having gone to form Sol Invictus. The presence of Current 93's David Tibet, however, is arguably no stranger to the opus's tremendous beauty. This brings to the duo the incantatory force of his song and the epic poetry of some compositions as on Fields of Rape, which brings face to face via this double meaning the violence of man through rape and the natural beauty of fertility through the metaphor of the rapeseed field. This piece is one of the illustrations of this turning point that we will qualify as dark folk, Death in June leaving behind the cold wave years to abandon themselves to epic and martial ballads in perfect symbiosis that no one else will ever happen. to carry out as well. Simple and airy chords with sometimes Hispanic accents, seriousness of the song, hymnic lyrics, distant percussions like a death knell are the essence of this founding opus. Yet Nada! is also the witness of the experimental drifts of the group which rises in spurts from this dreamlike torpor, not necessarily judiciously but with equally great success. The Calling (Mk II), a true dark electro hit, with its pre-baked (thank you Roland) EBM-style drum machine and icy echoing vocals continue to delight (good) goth and batcave evenings. Always more accessible, some songs sound ostentatiously more pop, again hemmed in by simplistic beats that make you nod your feet all the same. She Said Destroy, despite her vocals still as serious, is rather catchy with her choruses framed by impromptu sparkles. Just after it, Carousel is a very pleasant new wave reminiscence. Beside that, we find here and there unidentified hybrid tracks like the martial and whining Rain of Despair, the synthetic lullaby Crush my Love, the whining Last Farewell, and the annoying C'est un Rêve ("Where's Klaus Barbie? It's in the heart ”). Okay, black heart, but some will appreciate it. Despite certain über-Nazi references that Douglas Pearce kept sticking to his band's backside, there is no real alternative to a band like Death in June. We will therefore procure this reissue with the culpable enjoyment of a historian of good taste."
