Bela Lugosi’s Dead….

So here are two different groups, Bauhaus and The Electric Hellfire Club (respectively), that are performing “Bela Lugosi’s Dead.”

With the first video, version, I found it going at a slower pace, the melody seems much “softer” during Bauhaus’ life performance. The cords are more played out (more drawn out) and the reverb is much more pronounced. The drum beat contains fluctuations accentuated with guitars- not continuous as in the second version.

With the second video, version, I found that The Electric Hellfire Club created a “darker” contingent with the “dark-wave” genre using a continuous unaltering drum beat but retaining the same reverb accentuated with more background effects.

I think that the major difference between the two is the the first version, Bauhaus, primarily concentrates on guitar whileas the second focuses more on the drums.

I like them both but I think that I prefer the second as it has a much “darker” feel to it.
