This release also has a great remix from Spanish anhalt EBM masters Tech Nomader.<br /> And recently Struck 9 has released a remix album entitled "Default" which includes mixes from various artists, i.e. Equitant.

French for 'Mad Love', "Amour Braque" is conceptually described as "a sincere and cruel analysis of what love/sex relations are, a path that switches between tenderness and rot". Formed in 1999 as the solo project of Simone H. Salvatori, Spiritual Front dubs its sound "catchy ballads for heartbreaker nihilist youth"; its Morricone-inspired neofolk channels art rock, tango, new wave and country influences through a modern lens. Spiritual Front's unique musical identity is a reflection of Salvatori's savoir-faire which sees the frontman as a sort of Machiavellian play-boy, merging Las Vegas-esque pomp and stomp with a surly suggestiveness, lending the band's sound a hedonistic flair. The lyrical themes shared by Salvatori deal with issues such as searching for self-identity, sexuality, harsh realities and angry break-ups, each tinted with sarcasm, nihilism and biting humor. In its time as a band, Spiritual Front has contributed to the soundtracks of the TV series "Las Vegas" and the motion picture "Saw 2" as well as independent films, theatre productions and modern ballets.<br /> <br /> "Amour Braque" is Spiritual Front's sixth full-length album. The record combines gloomy alternative rock, dark folk and chamber pop with standout 60's blues rock vibes. Featuring striking cover art by cult surrealist artist Saturno Buttò, "Amour Braque" features guest musicians Matt Howden, King Dude, Client and more. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Sol Invictus - Necropolis,id,5557,aktualnosci.html 2018-03-12T08:17:11Z <img src="/images/news/201802250902059664293_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> More than 30 years after their inception, English neofolk kings Sol Invictus release their long-awaited new album, "Necropolis", described by the group's dean Tony Wakeford as "a record based on and brought forth from London and the serpent Thames that snakes its way through its heart" and possibly the final release from a band revered as progenitors of a dark and desperate sound.Sol Invictus is one of the most prolific and influential bands associated with neofolk or apocalyptic folk, a form of experimental music which emerged in punk rock circles in the 1980's, blending elements of folk and industrial music with dark themes of decay, decline, and/or the destruction of Western civilization. Along with Current 93 and Death in June (both of which included Wakeford as a member), Sol Invictus has both created and guided the genre, steering it forward through to this day. Latin for 'the unconquerable Sun', Sol Invictus has released over a dozen albums since the mid-Eighties, chronicling an evolution from raw, post-punk dark folk to increasingly sophisticated arrangements.A quasi-conceptual album centered on Wakeford's feelings of a declining London ["London was once the apex of an empire but it is now the playground of other empires that have superseded it."], "Necropolis" could be called a eulogy to England's capital. Sol Invictus titled the record after The London Necropolis Railway, a railway line that has connected London with the Brookwood Cemetary since 1854. But the moniker is also a nod to Wakeford's perception that the town is now "a London of mausoleums and masonry" and "a city haunted by the customs and crimes of the dead and the living.""Necropolis" features guest guitar from Don Anderson (ex-Agalloch, Khorada) who previously lent his skills to Sol Invictus' 2014 release, "Once Upon A Time". The group around Wakeford continues to explore the psychedelic side of dark folk, using acoustic guitar as a foundation enriched with piano, flute, violin, electric guitar an drums among other instruments and – for the first time – the singing of The Green Army Choir.

After the success with the last album "Retropia" the band has performed on all the big festivals around Europe. Wave-Gotik-Treffen, E-tropolis, Amphi Festival, NCN Festival and E-Only Festival just to name a few. They have steady and strong built up a big fanbase all over Europe and the demand for new material has been huge. Now it´s finally time. "Control" is the first single taken from the upcoming new album from duo Martin Rudefelt and Torny Gottberg and is a classic club smasher. And with classic we do not mean the typical "modern" dance 4-on-the-floor stuff everyone is mass-producing. Cryo wanted to take us back to a time where EBM was more cold and melodic. Imagine Front 242´s "Geography" but in a 2018 suit. There is where you will find Cryo. Classic melodic EBM. To go all the way the band also re-introduce the classic remix format with remixes from Assemblage 23, Mind.In.A.Box and several others.<br /> The CD comes in a slim-case is limited to 500 copies which is are all hand numbered.

The single, the band’s first in three years, is an anthemic pop song that savagely attacks the empty gestures and posturing of those in power. Built around a rousing chorus, swelling keys and crunching, industrial chords, ‘Magazine’ is a muscular, dynamic call-to-arms. Sure to whet the appetite for ‘Violence’ and strike an emotional chord with their legions of fans, ‘Magazine’ demonstrates an ambition from Editors that their latest work is destined for the biggest stages this summer.<br /> <br /> Talking about ‘Magazine’, Editors frontman Tom Smith says ‘‘Magazine is a pointed finger aimed at those in power...some corrupt politician or businessman...a character, and a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry."<br /> <br /> ‘Violence’ is the sixth album from Editors, and follows 2015’s acclaimed top 5 ‘In Dream’. It is produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Florence &amp; The Machine, Frightened Rabbit) and Editors with additional production from Benjamin John Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, except ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’ mixed by Alan Moulder.<br /> <br /> The ‘Magazine’ video was shot in Amsterdam by renowned photographer, director and long term Editors collaborator Rahi Rezvani.

The Album represented many aspects of the multifaceted Inkubus Sukkubus, and led the listener into a decadent universe of dark romantic lust, portraying. The album heavily influenced by the "Hammer Horror" films of the late 1950s and early 1960s which portrayed the vampire as a beautiful, sexual and yet, tragic being. The location for the story was always a fictional hyper-Bohemia, and then to the melting pot was added a hint of sadomasochism, a pinch of humour and an ample serving of cleavage.<br /> <br /> With their new album "Vampire Queen", Inkubus Sukkubus once again visit the Vampire Realm a Realm which is dark but not aphotic. It is a domain full of sensual passion, the dead resurrected, supernatural temptation and all of it in vibrant Technicolor. The band once again explore the sexual vampire in "Bathory", "Vampire Queen" and "Angel of Lust", the dark romance continues with "Let the Night Last Forever" and "In the Darkness and the Rain" but then move on to a medieval apocalyptic nightmare with "Here Come the Dead" which chronicles the plague of revenants of the middle ages, the band continue to traverse this Brugelesque and dreadful landscape with "Angelus Mortis" which sees the Angel of Death cutting a swathe through humanity as the Black Death. The Band eventually returns to slightly more familiar territory with "Nature Child" and "Wolf Boy", but not before passing through a shady netherworld for "Dancing the Night Away". All in all, "Vampire Queen" is essentially a return, not only to the Vampire Realm but also to the familiar Inkubus Sukkubus heavier Rocky style for which the band is best known. "Vampire Queen is a delight of Glamour Horror".

This album is the output of a tedious "write-delete-rewrite" process. The band set the bar very high and we hear it! Although these new tracks got stripped to the bone, they still feature an impressive richness of sound layers and musicality. And we indeed still recognize the IMPLANT characteristic ingredients which are all in there: danceable beats, parasitic sounds, melodies which settle in your ears like worms and the harsh vocals of Len Lemeire who once again spits his bile on our modern high-tech society in his quest for some balance and oxygen herein. "Oxynoxe-X" is not only IMPLANT’s 10th album, but it’s also a wink to one of the pioneers of electronica dance.<br /> <br /> The album also comes out as a limited edition with a bonus disc full of exclusive new material that can be considered as an integral part of a double-CD release. These bonus tracks were mostly inspired by modular synthesizers - which are very new in IMPLANT’s studio arsenal – and their unique and almost abstract way of creating. If the machines were still "on the leash" on the main album songs, they here got the freedom taking the lead… And the result is a strong highly visual dark sonic trip making allusions to pioneers of experimental electronics. Ideal listening position to this bonus disc is definitely horizontal.

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 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine 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 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Wrocław 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 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine 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 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Algiers in Poznań!,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.
