'I Am Electronic' is a grinding breakbeat/trance maelstrom with an irresistible vocoder voice refrain that makes the track instantly recognisable and absolutely irresistible on the dance floor, while 'Red Noise' represents the industrial roots of the band and updates Nitzer Ebb style EBM with IDM elements and strong vocals. Also featuring strong remixes and two exclusive tracks, this is an unmissable comeback! AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine I:Scintilla - Swayed http://alternation.eu/iscintilla-swayed,id,5606,aktualnosci.html 2018-09-14T08:12:44Z <img src="/images/news/201808120908424616907_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> On "Swayed", I:Scintilla’s brand new studio record, the Chicago-based electronic rock quintet poses several questions - and attempts just as many answers. Alongside charismatic frontwoman Brittany Bindrim, guitarist Jim Cookas, and drummer Vince Grech, joining I:Scintilla’s line-up is bassist Dean Dunakin and guitarist Myles Arwine.<br /> <br /> Recorded and produced by Greg Panciera (Sylvia Massy, Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails, Dave Bianco) over the course of the past 2 years, marks the first new music from I:Scintilla in four years and their first full length studio record since 2010. Brittany also states "…Our brief hiatus really recharged us creatively. Alongside this renewed passion and our evolution; the political climate, a deeper dive into the world of fine art, introspection, and truly immersing ourselves into the songwriting process has truly shaped this collection of songs and has remolded where we are as a band."<br /> <br /> With the recent first video/single "Carmena Saturna", I:Scintilla not only gave us a first glimpse into this much anticipated new album, but also proved to us once again that only they were able to release such catchy mind-infecting vocal lines ever! A stunning song mixing biting guitar riffs with schizophrenic vocals that go from powerful to mellow to creepy before the entire song deconstructs.<br /> <br /> Now, the album’s explosive, punk-influenced opening track, "Human", has frontwoman Brittany Bindrim asking, "Does this make us human?": a fitting initial question when you consider the band’s new sound - a deep studio exploration that favours organic instrumentation over programmed sounds. But that is just the beginning...<br /> <br /> Next to the hard-hitting groves of "Boxing Glove", "Nothing But Recordings" features a post-punk / new-wave vibe never heard from the band before - piano gives way to synthesizer which, in turn, gives way to driving bass, fuzzed guitars, and distorted rhythms...<br /> <br /> When that introspective mood may strike, look no further than "Mercy Screams". It captures some of the most beautiful moments in I:Scintilla’s entire catalogue. It is a gorgeous, yet strange, composition that cannot be put into words. Following suit are "Seaglass" and "Pieces", each capturing difficult subjects - addiction and death - through powerful, uplifting movements.<br /> <br /> The band can still flex its industrial-rock muscle, which is showcased on "DFTD (Between the Devils)" and "Island". The album closer is the title track, ‘Swayed’, which clocks in at eleven minutes. It is the ultimate apocalyptic punctuation mark for the record. The five band members fire on all cylinders on this odd, yet amazingly impactful, musical journey: tribal rhythms, shoegaze fuzz with soaring vocals, abstract electronics, and one of the heaviest endings you’ll ever hear.<br /> <br /> Throughout the entire album, Bindrim’s lyrics question many aspects of life, reality, and society, she dedicates the last few minutes of the record to just one - have you been swayed? AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Henric de la Cour - Gimme Daggers http://alternation.eu/henric-de-la-cour-gimme-daggers,id,5615,aktualnosci.html 2018-09-10T07:04:32Z <img src="/images/news/201808310708438421135_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> It's finally here! The long awaited new album from Henric de la Cour. It´s already been four years since we released "Mandrills" and since then a lot of things has happened. "Gimme Daggers" is Henric's most complete work since he went solo and will leave NO fans disappointed.<br /> <br /> The first 200 copies will be released as a limited edition 2CD version holding 2 additional tracks and is signed by Henric. This version is strictly limited to 200 and when it's gone, it's gone!<br /> <br /> Please note that we have a restriction of maximum 2 copies per customer. We really are not fans of people buying 5 and selling 4 on Discogs. The idea is to reach as many fans as possible. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Halo In Reverse - I Am Become Death Destroyer Of Worlds http://alternation.eu/halo-in-reverse-i-am-become-death-destroyer-of-worlds,id,5605,aktualnosci.html 2018-09-07T08:03:57Z <img src="/images/news/201808120908039845202_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> On his much anticipated new album "I Am Become Death Destroyer Of Worlds", the rebellious Halo In Reverse powerful machine is heading at full speed against all forms of tyrannies and nothing will stop Joshua Steffen from spitting his rage on all war waging US presidents. And songs like "The Tyrant", the now classic club hit "King O", "A River Red" and "Beating The Drum" speak for themselves!<br /> <br /> Still strongly rooted in the electro / industrial rock genre, Halo In Reverse significantly widens his sonic spectrum by bringing his characteristic clash of groovy bass lines against gritty incisive guitars to the next aggravating level. The overall tone this time is more aggressive but also more passionate and poignant. The subtle combination of deviant melodic electronics with highly expressive tormented vocals turn these new songs into dangerous intoxicating addictive tunes! And it's just a matter of time until you’ll fall into his claws...<br /> <br /> While letting his caustic synthesizers flow and percolate intricate song arrangements mixing trashy guitars with echoing dramatic piano rolls, Joshua Steffen delivers another electro record filled with emotion and the pain that only love can bring us when it is no longer returned, turning into a true catharsis helping him exorcising some personal demons and unleashing his raging sexuality on lustrous and decadent songs with attitude ("Five To The Wrist", "Dirty Girl", etc.).<br /> <br /> "I Am Become Death Destroyer Of Worlds" also has its surprises and unpredictable moments with the depressive and almost psychotic punk-wave epic cut "That Is What It Feels Like In My Head" or yet the manic cover of Black Sabbath’s "Into The Void" and the so well fitting take on Jesus &amp; The Mary Chain’s classic "Reverence", or last but not least the catchy simplicity of "Let You Down", a love-song full of grandeur and sincerity… AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Cocksure - Be Rich http://alternation.eu/cocksure-be-rich,id,5613,aktualnosci.html 2018-09-03T08:16:31Z <img src="/images/news/201808120908329585992_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Once again, Chris Connelly's howling bark meets Jason Novak's bone crushing rhythmic bite as Cocksure, bridging the gap between Wax Trax! era industrial and futuristic sounds of mass corruption. "Be Rich" is Cocksure's best - an amorous, amoral nod to the duos pasts in Revolting Cocks and Acumen Nation, irreverently, vehemently crotch-punched into the cutting edge of today's underground industrial. AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Trash Deity - Cross & Divide http://alternation.eu/trash-deity-cross-divide,id,5612,aktualnosci.html 2018-08-31T08:11:04Z <img src="/images/news/201808120908413966013_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Trash Deity is a new project combining the classic vocals and lyrics of Groovie Mann aka Franke N. Nardiello (My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult frontman/writer) with accomplished producer and Industrial artist John D. Norten (Blue Eyed Christ). The debut album Cross &amp; Divide creates the chaos and energy of the classic Wax Trax! sound updated with a heavy electronic/guitar groove and modern production.

Who Cares? http://alternation.eu/solar-fake-you-win.-who-cares,id,5609,aktualnosci.html 2018-08-24T08:32:28Z <img src="/images/news/201808120908201789898_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Solar Fake demonstrates on "You Win. Who Cares?" the balance between roots fidelity and light evolution for a better effort. The new songs take the fans on an intense trip through the shadow gallery of society.<br /> <br /> Where "Another Manic Episode" found its big final, "You Win. Who Cares?" continues and takes music and lyrics to the next level. Powerfull beats and electronics mix up with bittersweet piano parts to an emotional cocktail to give feelings such as aggression, resignation, power, vulnerability, weakness and anger the right expression, always supported by the deep lyrics. An album that reflects our daily lives and offers you a break from the world for a while.

Trip-hop, dub, dream pop, synth-pop, and lofi combine into a malange of seductive beats, found sounds, eerie textures, and distant melodies. Sonic cinema for sleepwalkers and insomniacs.

Three years after "The Looking Glass Society", the Swedish electro-pop duo returns with "The Victorian Wallflowers" and adds a diamond to their discography.<br /> <br /> This time, Anders Hagström and Tea F. Thimé went all out and and created an album as diverse and dynamic as the moment. Purified in sound by Mario Rühlicke (Blutengel), the choruses are presented in a most memorable way, the overall palette has become even more varied and the sounds reveal an astonishing eye for detail. The irresistible glamor of the band continues as well as a subtle wickedness and bitter-sweet taste, that has transformed it into one of the most exciting electro-pop acts of our time. "The Victorian Wallflowers" is a sparkling gem for friends dancing through nights that feel just as comfortable in shady corners, as well as in the middle of the dancefloor.

The intended out of the box interpretation, is just as much a part of the collection as the band's own style, which has already emerged on the debut. To take it to the top, masked frontman Steffen Bunke (prominently supported by Bjorn Strid in "Built To Resist") performs between dark growls and poignant, clean vocals. In ten songs, the maniacal guys from Osnabrück show that an angry, aggressive mood and haunting melodies are not separate from each other, but can join to form a great result.

Now 30 years later we have remastered and fixed this important milestone in Swedish EBM history and making it available again. The release is strict limited to 500 hand numbered copies and a must for everyone!!!! We are for sure proud like hell about this release. This is the way true early EBM sounds.

The root of the band's sound is found in these songs - a trip-hop bent on some works, unpolished, animalistic sensuality on others. Full of fearless experimentation of youth, this is a testament to abstract beauty. In the band's words,"They were written in the magical land of Once Upon A Time...Before we were monsters".

Blending concussive, machine-precise drums, hammering guitars, scathing vocals and evil electronics, the band is the epitome of dark metal industrial. The band's creative force, Nero Bellum, says he had to travel to a very dark place to make this album, and it shows. Stunning and unrelentingly evil, Psyclon Nine's finest album to date.

Their previous releases topped the German album charts already, while the upcoming release "Thornstar" will in no way be inferior to past efforts. This, their sixth studio album, reveals even more sonic facets of the band, all the while remaining hard and forceful.<br /> <br /> The deep and emotional concept behind the album follows the myth of a doomed high civilization -&nbsp;"Thornstar" is a record unique in both sound and concept.<br /> &nbsp; AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Combichrist + Wednesday 13 + Night Club http://alternation.eu/combichrist-wednesday-13-night-club,id,643,koncerty.html 2018-07-28T11:08:01Z <img src="/images/galleries/cw13nc_2018/172_D4A_2041.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Poland, Wrocław, Zaklęte Rewiry, 2018-07-26<br><br><br> AlterNation Music Magazine &copy; 2005 - 2018 AlterNation Music Magazine Panic Lift - End Process http://alternation.eu/panic-lift-end-process,id,5597,aktualnosci.html 2018-07-27T08:21:32Z <img src="/images/news/201807070607227303838_1408.jpg" alt="" align="left" width="40px" height="40" hspace="10"> Panic Lift has carved its niche in the dark electronic music scene with a blend of hard industrial, elements of Synth-pop, Dance, and Rock. The new album, End Process sees Panic Lift evolved and more matured than ever. End Process feels as the vision and unique voice found in the previous album Skeleton Key has been fully fleshed out, a darker, more concussive, focused work of art from Panic Lift.
