Here, rock'n'roll is synonymous with pure lust for life and anthemic choruses meet precision high-speed-guitar. From the essence of Hair-Metal-icons like Mötley Crüe, Cinderella, Ratt or Poison and the drive of Power-Metal-acts such as Helloween, Night Laser have distilled a fresh and energetic sound that is both familiar and new. It is therefore little wonder that Metal-legend Kai Hansen (ex-Helloween, Gamma Ray) volunteered to spice up the title song "Laserhead" with his trademark vocals and that none other than Jens Reinhold (of Running Wild, Freedom Call or Sodom-fame) hand painted the stylistically perfect cover artwork. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Freakangel - How the Ghost Became http://alternation.eu/freakangel-how-the-ghost-became,id,5392,aktualnosci.html 2017-03-24T07:26:09Z <img src="/images/news/201703121103134783862_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Freakangel release their new album "How the Ghost Became" – finally taking what has now become a full four-piece band firmly into industrial metal territory.<br /> Dmitry's singing, now freed from distortion, has never sounded so powerful and no album has ever come this close to capturing the full ferocity of live performance. Songs like "Make Me Disappear" have probably more in common with industrial than anything remotely considered "electronic" – while those hoping for the more four-to-the-floor groove of the band's early releases will find that fused with this super-heavy new sound in songs like the album opener "Witness the Fall" or the club-friendly "Giving up the Ghost".<br /> Setting a formidable new standard in industrial metal, "How the Ghost Became" is an album that even Freakangel themselves may find hard to follow! AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Pre-emptive Strike 0.1 - Through the Astral Cold http://alternation.eu/pre-emptive-strike-0.1-through-the-astral-cold,id,5391,aktualnosci.html 2017-03-24T07:13:03Z <img src="/images/news/201703121103289367466_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Hammering high-tempo hits like "More than Flesh", "Harbinger" or album opener "Killing Protocols" have a prime directive to move your body seemingly coded into them - while more mid-tempo songs such as "Pyrrhic Victory" and "Phantom" slow things down to provide the perfect accompaniment.<br /> For this, their 6th full album, Pre-emptive Strike 0.1 step away from the themes of their last 2 albums "Epos V" and "T.A.L.O.S." – which celebrated both Greek mythology and traditional Greek instrumentation – and revisit instead the same sci-fi tropes that characterized both their earlier 3 albums and "Eternal Masters"… over the top of some of the most stunningly powerful songwriting and programming they have ever produced. For all fans of harsh-EBM/dark electro, "Through The Astral Cold" is a landmark release that through the ages will surely come to stand as an absolute classic album of the genre. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Cygnosic - Siren http://alternation.eu/cygnosic-siren,id,5393,aktualnosci.html 2017-03-23T07:30:16Z <img src="/images/news/201703121103397869436_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> This limited first edition of the CD comes in a luxurious digibook format with beautifully photographed lyric booklet and as with all previous CygnosiC physical releases. The 5th album from CygnosiC. 12 tracks of perfectly crafted slamming dark electro, a testament to an artist at the peak of his creative powers.<br /> With every album Georg Psaroudakis finds some new spins and twists to add to his already formidable arsenal of songwriting skills, while always retaining the distinctive signature sound that has made CygnosiC such a scene favourite and in such high demand as a remixer. "Siren" is no exception.

The strong and concisely sound design is anchored in the past of electronic music and seems to trace the fragile emotions to its origin.<br /> Warm analog synthesizers, pulsating sequencer sounds and powerful rhythms give a retro-touch to the music but keep it new again, modern and unique. Detailed arrangements and creative variety of sounds are surrounded by catchy melodies and together with the voices of Sevren and Estefanía create an intensive atmosphere.<br /> From the driving "Masterpiece " and "Photomatique" to the gloomy melancholic "Ghost" and "Breathe", from the hymnal "One Time" to the monumental "Crankmachine" XMTP spread out their distinctive dramaturgy of sound.

There will be two videoclips of the new album. The songs "Allvater" and "Deutsches Land" getting a furious optic view!<br /> For the song "De Sade" they could own the voice of Melanie Neuhöfer, with her classic timbre she gives a beautiful atmosphere to the music! AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Aeverium - Time http://alternation.eu/aeverium-time,id,5383,aktualnosci.html 2017-03-20T09:49:24Z <img src="/images/news/201703040803055643529_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> On the second album "Time", Modern-Metal group Aeverium finds the perfect balance between anthemic symphonic sounds and contemporary harshness.<br /> The second album "Time" is elevating the unique fusion of styles to the next level. The hard parts were turned up a notch, the transition into the symphonic parts is executed even more smoothly and the explosive fusion of emotion, aggression and cinematic pomp is all the more intense. Furthermore, the hard riffs in tracks like "Hunted" or "What About Me" are grounded on a pulsating electronic foundation that reminds of the early days of bands like Linkin Park or Disturbed.

The new album "Fig. 23" is a conceptual voyage through jazzy electro noir, trip-hop inspired psychedelia, and experimental noise sculptures. Unlike the first release, this new offering features vocal and musical collaborations with an illustrious list of friends and fellow artists such as Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy, Edward Ka-Spel of The Legendary Pink Dots, Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy of My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Ryan Wildstar and Doriandra Smith of EXP, and many more.

A mere year after the release of the successful debut album the hard-working quartet fronted by singer Neill Devin is delivering the explosive successor, aptly titled "Supernova."<br /> "Supernova" is a harder, darker, more menacing and a great deal more mature version of Erdling: a hit-monster comprised of anthemic melodies, yet in a constant wrestling match with laconic German-language lyrics, a juggernaut of precise guitar riffing and a thudding machine of rhythm and electronics.<br /> The album will also be released as a deluxe double CD-version containing an exclusive bonus disc with remixes, alternative versions and re-interpretations of the new songs by the likes of Marc Görtz from Caliban, To The Rats And Wolves, Heldmaschine, Andy Brings (ex-Sodom, Double Crush Syndrome) and Calibre Infinite.

Something significant approaches us. "Just like a hissing cobra slowly wrenching from the shadows" - this is how the duo, comprising of band founder Mika Goedrijk and Karolus Lerocq who joined the band in 2010, describes its ninth studio album.<br /> There's a major innovation in the fact that for the first time TMO have recorded two tracks with sung vocals.<br /> While disc one is ecstatic and forceful, the second one builds up an atmosphere more easily identifiable with the subject matter of the apocalypse.

Awaiting impending death as the sky grows dark. Black smoke wheezing from charred windows. We we're born from stardust, but are but puppets in a mindless game of DNA manipulation, life.<br /> Deep analogue drones rumble under the heavy boots of the human machine. Aegri Somnia plays the role of field recorder and audio manipulator with surgical precision.<br /> <br /> Written, Produced, Performed - Jurica Santek; Artwork &amp; Mastering - Simon Heath.<br /> &nbsp; AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Aesthetic Perfection - LAX http://alternation.eu/aesthetic-perfection-lax,id,1491,recenzje.html 2017-03-06T13:35:44Z <img src="/images/reviews/201609021309261792405_2413.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> It's been over two years since the release of "'Til Death" and Daniel Graves finally returns with a new single "LAX", but like most Aesthetic Perfection releases this one also feels like a momentous m(...)

The album explores intimate themes that give infinite weight to her songs – anchoring them here on earth while the subject of love lost and found reverberates like soundwaves floating up and out in the atmosphere.
