Their mission on this new 13-track album is perfectly summarized in its one-word title "Reanimator": The Berlin-based AD:keY duo will reanimate our bodies and brains, blowing away the dust from our daily routines, insufflating a breath of positive vibes into our greatest hopes and dreams, and inviting all of us with a clear critical position to act and do something in life for the future of humanity and the universe… "We live here, we live now, we celebrate it" being their new motto!<br /> <br /> Musically, the duo stays faithful to its characteristic style while continuing widening its sonic spectrum and expanding its production skills and songwriting quality level. AD:keY stands for hi-energy positive EBM work made of stomping beats, muscled bass lines, addictive melodic electro sequences and clear powerful (mostly German) vocals. And the vocal duality of Andrea’s shouting leads and Rene’s clear backing vox which made AD:KEY stand out as unique and original on the "old school Electronic Body Music" scene, reaches here an amazing symbiosis giving all its force and strength to this stunning album.<br /> <br /> "Reanimator" is a non-stop EBM pumping machine AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine AnimeCon Halloween http://alternation.eu/animecon-halloween,id,634,konwenty.html 2017-11-14T15:24:55Z <img src="/images/galleries/animecon2017/IMG_3071_e_1000.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Poland, Poznań, 2017-10-27<br><br><br> AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Wrocław Industrial Festival 2017 http://alternation.eu/wroclaw-industrial-festival-2017,id,633,festiwale.html 2017-11-09T12:44:28Z <img src="/images/galleries/wif_2017/620_D4B_8137.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Poland, Wrocław, Gothic Hall, 02/05-11-2017<br><br><br> AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Alternative Fashion Show http://alternation.eu/alternative-fashion-show,id,632,alterimagination.html 2017-11-01T11:34:11Z <img src="/images/galleries/afswtf2017/29.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Poland, Warsaw, WTF, 07-10-2017​<br><br><br> AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Algiers in Poznań! http://alternation.eu/algiers-in-poznan,id,5532,wydarzenia.html 2017-10-28T08:30:02Z <img src="/images/news/201710280810062893051_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> On 8 November Go Ahead agency invites you to autumn's concert of the <strong>Algiers</strong> band in Poznań in Meskalina club!<br /> <br /> Algiers is a band that cannot be labelled by one specific music genre.

At the very beggining the band admitted that apart from ambitious music they have something more to say – by lyrics that without compromise tell about racism, religion, economy and ethics.<br /> <br /> Currently Algiers are promoting their second album "The Underside of Power", produced by Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Ali Chant, and the whole was mixed by Randall Dunn.<br /> <br /> 2017-11-08 (Wednesday) Poznań, Meskalina club<br /> Entrance: 19:00, start: 20:00<br /> Ticket price: 59 / 65 zł<br /> Where can be bought: www.biletomat.pl, www.ticketmaster.pl, www.ebilet.pl, www.ticketpro.pl oraz sklepy sieci Empik, Media Markt, Saturn.

Influenced by Kraftwerk, The Human League, Visage &amp; Depeche Mode, the band and its lineup evolved, from technopop, through flirtations with 80's electro-dance &amp; 90's techno.<br /> The new album, "Jewel", amalgamates all of these influences, along with touches of Erasure, The Pet Shop Boys, &amp; more into a delightful modern synthpop album.

Headed by Scott Fox, along with cohorts Jamie Blacker &amp; Yann Faussurier, iVardensphere has created an album where industrial &amp; analogue synths share space with simmering textured instrumental experiments, &amp; crushing tribal drums. Masterfully blended, "Hesitation" is a singular, concussive, cohesive tour de force of industrial.

The result is an artistic collage of seamlessly blended styles and genres. The new album, "The Fellow Traveler" is the finest work in the band's two and a half decade career. Featuring a cover of "Loving The Alien" by David Bowie.

The title song is a gripping fusion of the classic Eighties-Gothic-feeling with the trademark Blutengel-sound and is pretty much all that defines the group in a nutshell. The song is included in the album version and in 2 previously unreleased mixes.&nbsp; Blutengel play out all their strengths here, while also trying out something new, which makes "Black" an ideal companion piece to the group's latest album "Leitbild".<br /> <br /> &nbsp; AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine ASP - Zutiefst http://alternation.eu/asp-zutiefst,id,5511,aktualnosci.html 2017-10-21T07:19:42Z <img src="/images/news/201709171009599477284_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> ASP descend into the most unfathomable depths of the human soul. On "Zutiefst" Alexander ‘Asp' Spreng concentrates quite clearly on that which the fans love and which makes this band so special: Ten spooky musical short stories that contain that finely distilled skill, and which constitute what is probably the shortest ever literary work. Each song knows how to captivate with its very own fantastic plot, and as ASP sets to work, he does so full of gusto.

Karoshi is a japanese term for death by a sacrifice job. The idea for the album title was born during the production progress of the album while the band members often had to find a middle way in between the love for the music, being private family men and their own dayly job routine.<br /> "Karoshi" is also an album which has some strong social messages. The album cover was designed by Irene Berbee. The Deluxe version of "Karoshi" features massive six (!) bonus tracks starting with some acoustic version of "The Dying of your Pride" and "The Principle of Grace" which give you goose bumps while listening, followed by four massive remixes from well known bands such as Eisfabrik, Rotersand, Beborn Beton or Neuroticfish who gave the songs their very own brand.

Their forthcoming album is highly modern and well-produced. "Against The Days" shows a matured band that is still committed to a hybrid of dense, upbeat EBM with glitchy Future Pop, all topped off by Roman Sorokas unique vocals. The title "Against The Days" expresses everyday struggle of lives torn between stress, pressure and, above all, war and the invasion of the protagonists' home country - Ukraine.

Our Banshee, with Agi Taralas and Stefan Böhm are just about to release their debut record "4200", you can already state that this collaboration is a convergence of talent with great potential. These two very different musical backgrounds resulted in an electronic work with a lot of character. "4200" does have a certain EBM feel, variety and some other quality that would suit every album well: great songwriting and strong vocals.

Plus, it marks the collaboration of two of the most distinguished names in dark electronic world, as Kirlian Camera work with Swedish electronic icons Covenant on the A-side version of the track, which is also a duet between singer Elena Alice Fossi and Covenant's Eskil Simonsson - their collaboration culminates in one of the finest electronic singles.
