You will be transferred in a new-wave world of playful irony, electronic melodies and experimentation. Once we go through the gates of this Cinema we shall forget our fears in the sound of a cinematic track inspired by David Lynchs' movie "Dune". After this catharsis we are ready to enter the dark, mutant world of the currenlty most visionary band emerging from the Greek underground. Selofans' world is multi sided, you may feel directly connected to it and the next moment you may lose the ground under your feet. The album is singular in concept but varies in genres: dark-wave treasures, synth-punk spells, melodic saxophone fairy-tales and early industrial beats coexist in harmony, while a voice sings or whispers poems of great emotional tension in different languages, exposing uncomfortable truths.

In contrast to its more rocking predecessor "Kill Your Darlings," "Runway" is a pure club track with a killer hook line and a killer bass line bound to make waves on the dancefloors of the world. With "Too little too late" and the cover version of Yazoo's classic "Tuesday", you'll get two excellent B-sides as well. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine The Vacant Lots - Endless Night http://alternation.eu/the-vacant-lots-endless-night,id,5409,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-20T07:37:10Z <img src="/images/news/201704010804398363907_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> The Vacant Lots new album "Endless Night" channels the pairs dual power through their minimal means maximum effect aesthetic. Endless Night is a bridge of two worlds with one foot firmly placed in hard-hitting rock and roll, and the other in the realm of electronic dance.<br /> Casting light from this noir-esque world, "Endless Night" offers a fresh take on familiar experiences while exploring love, death, and life. Poetic, but with a streetwise swagger, The Vacant Lots™ dark electro psych approach captures recurring notions of duality through a dizzying and hypnotic blast of guitar riffs and revved-up electronics on tracks like "Night Nurse" and "œElevation".<br /> Through a detached yet accessibly channeled dark-pop vision, and electrifying primitive punk spirit, The Vacant Lots cut through the dark - an experience they genuinely understand after working with their hero, friend and punk ally, Suicide's Alan Vega.

Originally released in the mid 90's, this album still stands as a benchmark for industrial music. Dissonant, laden with hooks, driving &amp; teeming with seething aggression, this varied, beloved release helped spawn a generation of industrial acts. Limited to 500 copies. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Dive - Underneath http://alternation.eu/dive-underneath,id,5401,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-18T07:42:52Z <img src="/images/news/201703250603281540927_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Belgian electronic pioneer Dirk Ivens unleashes the eagerly awaited new album of his cult project Dive. "Underneath" is another masterpiece of dark minimalist Electro-art.<br /> After a hiatus of more than a decade, Dirk Ivens' project Dive finally returns with a new sign of life. For the new album "Underneath", he has again teamed up with Ivan Iusco and Rafael M. Espinosa. The result is a maelstrom of minimalist Electronica that ranges from fascinating to unsettling: Stripped-bare rhythms, dark, machine-like sequencers, psychotic synth-sounds that are expertly intertwined with cleverly placed noise-attacks and the distinctive, feverishly manic and ghostly raw voice of Dirk Ivens towering above it all.<br /> Some tracks, like the groovy "Far Away" or the hammering "Something" have turned out surprisingly catchy, but as a whole "Underneath" is a menacing behemoth that relentlessly pulls the listener into its dark machine world.

Originally released in 1991 "Lust" spawned a series of club hits. As the album's title implies, the tracks touch upon various sexually-related topics, complimented by hardcore techno/new beat/rave electronica sound. This Special Remastered Band Edition features bonus tracks selected from B-sides from the album's singles.

Serene winds of emotional texture mix with bowed strings. Guitars crackle with slight distortion as they hover over fields of tape noise.<br /> This album probes the depth of the future, where memory transfers into binary form. Digital consciousness in a perpetual loop reliving the past in fractal labyrinths.<br /> <br /> Written, Produced, Performed, Artwork: Erik Osvald; Mastering: Simon Heath.<br /> &nbsp; AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Various Artists - Electrostorm Vol.8 http://alternation.eu/various-artists-electrostorm-vol.8,id,5400,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-14T07:29:46Z <img src="/images/news/201703250603113837226_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> The eighth instalment of the popular Electro-sampler-series yet again offers a selection of new songs from the most important scene bands and the most promising newcomers.

The instrumental tracks drenched in echo and reverberation ebb and flow, dropping in and out of the mix, and are kept together by the prominent use of varied deep bass application. The usage of implemented voices, acoustic drums and an alectric guitar played by Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit) create a distinctly organic feel to the music, even though the effects are electronically created.<br /> &nbsp; AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Eff Dst - Blackout http://alternation.eu/eff-dst-blackout,id,5397,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-12T07:48:31Z <img src="/images/news/201703250603302689199_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Eff Dst is an electronic music project led by the composer, programmer and performer Dmitry Stepnov (Diffuzion). Blending industrial, experimental, ambient, idm, and trance styles, Eff Dst's music features intriguing themes that range from mellow to edgy and gritty.<br /> Eff Dst's 'Blackout' album introduces a supreme balance between dreamlike emotional ambience and enthralling hypnotic rhythm textures. Eleven different landscapes of sonic brilliance full of idyllic, floating synth melodies and luscious warmth, immersed in an ocean of reverberated pads. The beauty of ambient soundscapes coalesced with idm's complexity and industrial music's harshness.

A breathy politic scream from the lower regions of the information substrata. A diverse, inclusive but concise statement of seismic discontent. A dance floor screed about the alchemical potential nested in universal surveillance.<br /> Crisis Actor are a perfect combination of intelligent EBM with a techno approach and social commentary. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Seven Trees - Trauma Toxicity http://alternation.eu/seven-trees-trauma-toxicity,id,5389,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-10T07:30:31Z <img src="/images/news/201703121103374087642_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Finally. One of Sweden's finest returns to the scene. Swedish dark electro/industrial duo Seven Trees are back. In the end of the 90's they quickly became one of the shooting stars of the scene with their album "Embracing The Unknown". After that things went quiet, but now they are back. "Trauma Toxicity" is 5 brand new tracks with dark, haunting, atmospheric and wonderful industrial. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Phonothek - Red Moon http://alternation.eu/phonothek-red-moon,id,5415,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-08T08:06:28Z <img src="/images/news/201704080704434289727_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> "Red Moon" is continuing the Phonothek's theme of the inevitable death of our planet.<br /> A sad lonely trumpet echoes between ruined apartment complexes. The ground is dry and dusty, nothing grows here. Where once laughter of children lingered, now only the creak of broken swings remain. The earth is dying.<br /> "Red Moon" explores a world in flames through use of atonal instrumentation and layered atmospherics. It brings the sound of the old world to life.<br /> <br /> Written, Produced, Performed: Phonothek.<br /> Contributing Musicians: Viola by Giorgi Cagareli, Trombone by Mamuka Beqauri, Trumpet/Horn/Bariton by George Shamanauri.<br /> Cover Art: George Van De Kamp.<br /> Digipak Artwork: Simon Heath.

Lush, sweeping arrangements float around the steady groove of the rhythm section and Luke Paquin's other-worldly, atmospheric guitar work. Lyrical themes of existential crisis, contemporary American culture, &amp; romantic love are given an extra ache by Paige Stark's haunting, molasses vocals. "The Dream" creates a world of its own-familiar yet esoteric, evoking a feel both classic and futuristic, firmly establishing Tashaki Miyaki's singular sound and voice. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2017 AlterNation Music Magazine Merciful Nuns - A-U-M http://alternation.eu/merciful-nuns-a-u-m,id,5405,aktualnosci.html 2017-04-05T07:18:12Z <img src="/images/news/201703260703373183252_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> The Merciful Nuns return with their ninth album "A-U-M". It continues to deliver a profound lyrical context against a backdrop of mesmerising soundscapes and carefully orchestrated containment of driven energy.&nbsp;This time the journey takes us into the realms of Eastern philosophy, a tour-de-force in the manner established fans of the band have grown accustomed to and will no doubt find their anticipation suitably serviced with "A-U-M". Vocals, bass and guitars are arranged in perfect harmony and in support of each other; one never gets the impression of listening to three individuals working together but rather a coordinated trinity.

Daniel Myer presents the new track ‘Deconfiguration’ - a straightforward technoid idm hybrid that features hard, pounding dance beats and breathtaking melodic breaks. The package also includes an exclusive hard-hitting club mix, a minimalistic chilling remix by Bristol-based techno artist Joe Farr and a hard percussive remix excursion by Canadian electronic music legend Rhys Fulber (Conjure One/Front Line Assembly).

But the calm shouldn’t last for too long, the follow-up track "Erase My Heart" makes the toes tap. Everything the scene has been missing was put into 11 brandnew tracks and the band is starting to attack the dark clubs worldwide again.

An opus like "Days of Black" after 33 years in business, unites monotonous rigour with floating lightness, marries juvenile "Sturm und Drang" with the expertise of the experienced artist. Thus, before the opening track with its vigorous drums, its shimmering Post Punk guitars and its menacing synth foundation is over.<br /> Clan Of Xymox prove to be a balanced, matured and aesthetically perfect unit that never halted and that today is able to connect three decades of music history in the most atmospheric, gripping and arousing way possible. Each and every song possesses a momentum instantly hypnotising everything within reach, translating the unbeaten aura of the eighties into our black times.
