It touches you from the very first note and builds up a fantasy world in your head, tempting you to lose yourself completely in its magic. Adrian Hates has come up with another masterpiece: 13 incredibly intense and emotional hymns in a wide variety of moods and colors come together to make up a very special conceptual work. Adrian himself already lists "Hell in Eden" amongst his favorite albums.

On the remixers' list you can find well-known contributors like Dead Voices On Air, Displacer, Iszoloscope and Tripswitch (who also did the mastering), and artists who might be yet unheard to some listeners like D-Echo Project, Xspance and Solid State.

It is the third album from this EBM trio. It contains potential club hits and a cover version of "Black Saturday". The production was done in collaboration with Stefan Poiss (mind.in.a.box). The song texts range from spy thrillers, over impossible love and psychological crossroads, to an homage to various horror films and to "1984". It is not a band that boringly hides behind keyboards. The experience of more than 100 live gigs as support or headlining act, they know how to give it their all on stage. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Your Life On Hold - Burning For The Ancient Connection http://alternation.eu/your-life-on-hold-burning-for-the-ancient-connection,id,5475,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-18T07:38:03Z <img src="/images/news/201708020808453180546_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Your Life On Hold album "Burning For The Ancient Connection" is a gothic rock sound that seems like natural and fitting to express the melancholic and gloomy narrative. Dreamy and atmospheric guitars inject brightness and colours into the dark compositions, while a tight and solid rock sound sometimes turns the melancholy into an angry harder wall of sound. Therefore we like to call it ‘post goth’, because of the rich array of influences and textures, bringing the classic gothic rock sound to a new level. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Soror Dolorosa - Apollo http://alternation.eu/soror-dolorosa-apollo,id,5509,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-14T07:31:56Z <img src="/images/news/201709100909234715516_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Here comes new album by the already legendary act, Paris-based Soror Dolorosa. The band creates raw and hungry gothic rock inspired by post-punk, death rock and cold wave. Soror Dolorosa four years in the making, "Apollo" is now crowning the achievement; a bombastic dystopian world view encapsulated in dark popcraft. Melodic and memorable, the album shines a light on both stunning beauty and haunting sadness with Julia's foreboding, prophet of doom baritone soaring on down a long and lonesome highway full of baroque, exquisite anguish. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine V.A. - Dependence 2017 http://alternation.eu/v.a.-dependence-2017,id,5481,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-13T07:08:48Z <img src="/images/news/201708120908109671740_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> "Dependence 2017" as always is the compilation full with exclusive tracks and mixes of the Dependent label repertoire. The atmospheric electronic composition of the "Volt" soundtrack by Alec Empire sets a moody intro to be sharply contrasted by acts like Covenant &amp; Mesh. Long awaited and unreleased tracks from the Seabound side projects Edge Of Dawn &amp; Ghost &amp; Writer lead from Synthpop to the critically acclaimed modern industrial debut of 2nd Face to the hi-octane trance industrial maelstrom from This Morn' Omina back to the Electronic Pop cover version of the old Kinks rock classic "(Girl) You Really Got Me" by Spectra*Paris.&nbsp;<br /> "Dependence 2017" represents a fusion of various electronic styles, an exciting sonic helicopter-style trip through the rich and diverse tracks. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Gary Numan - Savage http://alternation.eu/gary-numan-savage,id,5479,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-12T07:46:30Z <img src="/images/news/201708040708051376763_1408.png" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Gary Numan releases "Savage (Songs From A Broken World)" album, which has a narrative set in an apocalyptic, post-global warming Earth in the not-too-distant future. It’s a harsh, savage environment, as are the survivors who still roam across it.<br /> "The songs are about the things that people do in such a harsh and terrifying environment," explains Numan. "It's about a desperate need to survive and they do awful things in order to do so, and some are haunted by what they've done. That desire to be forgiven." AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine La Scaltra - Freakshow http://alternation.eu/la-scaltra-freakshow,id,5474,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-11T07:28:30Z <img src="/images/news/201708020808081644693_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> "Freakshow" is an outstanding album by this eclectic and imaginative duo, which employs minimal synth with original New Wave embellished by a decent portion of post-Punk. Particularly the elementary melodies and arrangements comprising bass, guitar, synthesizer and drum computer, enhanced with aloof yet enchanting wave-like voices casting their irresistible spell.<br /> "Freakshow" is uncompromisingly cold, dark and minimalistic, eerie and sinister not unlike a walk through an ancient cemetery draped in fog and moonlight. "Find beauty in darkness" is their motto! &nbsp;La Scaltra represent the most gorgeous Gloomy-Goth, full of obscure creativity and heavenly tristesse. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Somatic Responses - Pattern Seeking http://alternation.eu/somatic-responses-pattern-seeking,id,5497,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-08T07:16:10Z <img src="/images/news/201708290908292236390_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Somatic Responses are an open-minded project concerning the vast array of contemporary electronic music.<br /> Although a unique style is always visible, there never was any reserve involving various influences in their work. This stylistic care free attitude is an important element of the 'Pattern Seeking' release where the Healy brothers include many sonic directions from lush ambient to pounding techno, catchy electro and abstract breaks into one diversified and enthralling album - a coexistence of syncopated harshness and enigmatic ambience.

The Danish solo-act played by Kenneth Steen Larsen offers an unique musicality that is unequivocally inspired by the classic 80's electro-synthpopish reminiscences modernized by a personal avant-garde touch, with charming and suggestive melodies, always planned to capture you at first listening. The album "Panic In Slow Motion" is a suggestive document that will convince all fans of this specific genre. Its twelve tracks express freshness but also introspection, aesthetic sense and pleasant refinement, all through clear, intelligible vocals which embellish essential partitures of keyboard and drum-programming rhythms cadenced at variable speeds. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Fires - Red Goes Grey http://alternation.eu/fires-red-goes-grey,id,5466,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-04T07:32:24Z <img src="/images/news/201707090807081909847_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Nashville's Fires creates a compelling mix of American industrial, pop, &amp; dark electronic with more than a touch of Synthwave. The album is influenced by the more pop elements of acts like Imperative Reaction, The Killers, Carpenter Brut, Survive &amp; Kesha. Spawned during an intensely profound period of personal upheaval, every song on the LP breathes with emotionally charged intimacy. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Projekt 26 - Violets and Violence http://alternation.eu/projekt-26-violets-and-violence,id,5463,aktualnosci.html 2017-09-01T07:25:09Z <img src="/images/news/201707090807184541264_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> The german brothers Nico (Drums) and Timo T. (Vocals) established Projekt 26 back in 2013, when they successfully merged the raw power of Oldschool-EBM and catchy Synthpop-melodies, creating their own unique and exceptional sound.<br /> Since 2015, Cyril M. (Synthesizer) and Tim B. (2. Synthesizer), complete the band as live-members to transport the energy of the sound properly on stage.<br /> Projekt 26 already played Familientreffen Sandersleben XI and supported several well-known bands like Spark!, The Invincible Spirit or Velvet Acid Christ.

The basic sources for the eleven haunting tracks were original tape recordings Boysen and his family members made decades ago for private use, ranging from piano etudes to classical works of composers like J.S. Bach and Johannes Brahms.<br /> Tracks were restored, to revived and re-arranged. Each tape was digitized to hard disc, loops and patches were extracted from this sound pool, and the collection was recorded once again.<br /> The tapes were taken and played back inside a church where the natural reverb of the location was added and used as the master recording.
