Thundering guitars, marching beats and blazing lyrics – Ost+Front celebrate their own trademarks and impressively demonstrate their leading position in the Neue Deutsche Härte genre.
"If you want Ost+Front, you‘ll get Ost+Front. Always on the highest level. Always at the limit!", singer Hermann Ostfront sets direction. The band delivers and shows full strength on "Dein Helfer in der Not". At the same time they send their fans a clear message in those weird times: "With this album we want to reach out to you, take your hand and help you getting back on your feet. We are Ost+Front – your helpers in times of need!" While other bands lose bite over time, Ost+Front show their teeth: "Dein Helfer in der Not" is pure adrenaline for the continuously growing fan base and a provocative piece of art, that for sure not everybody will enjoy. Between morbid tales and observance of society the songs play with the listeners expectations and are tough material while still being catchy: "We are the mirror of society. The abysses of humankind, social grievances, sexual limits - we dare to say that out loud. This album is a documental masterpiece of its finest.", Hermann comments. "Dein Helfer in der Not" will be released as regular album CD, 2-CD Digipak with additional tracks and remixes, limited 2-LP as well as limited box edition including the Digipak version, hip flask, emergency set, a face mask, a hand numbered ownership certificate signed by the band plus an additional bonus CD of exclusive songs.

The Birthday Massacre - Diamonds2020-03-16 (News)
'The night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.'
'Diamonds', the new album by The Birthday Massacre, contains an exploration of darkness as well as light, poison as well as its antidote. Within the songwriting, one can sense the passing of time, and the conflicts and resolutions that we can all feel. Nights end, and days resolve. If we look inside, we can find these precious emotions and conflicts.
Every single one of them is valuable. Like the diamonds in the dark. And thus, we have "Diamonds" by the Birthday Massacre. The distinctive soaring synths and guitars, paired with our Chibi's beautiful familiar and reassuring voice, guides us all into the darkness as well as out to the light - guides us to mourn and to look inside, but also take our hand and invite us to dance, and remember - the night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.
Pouppee Fabrikk - Armén2020-03-09 (News)
With a minimalist powerful electronic style that was often compared to pioneers like DAF and Nitzer Ebb, Pouppee Fabrikk are the leaders of the EKM movement (Elektronisk Kroppsmusik) - physical music that makes you want to get up and move. Since 1987, Sweden's Pouppee Fabrikk has never been about perfection or being nice. They stand for 100% primitive electronic with attitude. No compromise, no polish!
With their previous album ("The Dirt") the band intentionally decided to look backward, doing an attempt at recreating the past and bringing back the ways of old, using early abandoned demo’s as unique creation source. In 2020, Pouppee Fabrikk now release their first brand new studio album since the 90’s. After having looked back at their uncompromising aggressive past, the Swedish gang today strongly reconfirms with "Armén" their solid early-Electronic Body Music sonic roots! This new straight in your face 10-tracker retains all Pouppee Fabrikk’s trademark attributes: Henrik Björkk’s commanding growling vocals, devastating repetitive bass lines and solid hard beats. They serve us straight-in-your-face stomping hard electronics to the ultimate pleasure of their fanbase. But this new album takes us to the next level, adding a gritty, dirty and violent touch to it all, making Pouppee Fabrikk sound even more radical, loud and noisy than ever, carrying us at that point of balance where the sound of grinding machines and the suffering of sweating bodies unite before imploding and exploding.
"Armén" is an angry and impulsive assault against all forms of control and oppression, urging us to take command on our lives, to fight for freedom of expression, breaking the codes, becoming a league of our own and shouting out loud once for all that "enough is enough".
For the very first time as well, Pouppee Fabrikk also deliver a very expressive song in their own Swedish mother tongue, "Kom Ta Min Smärta" ("come take my pain") which is sure to become a floor-filler in the clubs that dare to go hard…
2020 is definitely bound to become a year of "grand cru" for Electronic Body Music. Run for shelter.
The "Armén" album also comes out on black vinyl format as a limited edition of 300 units worldwide.
The Pouppee Fabrikk army of fans will also enjoy the deluxe carton box edition of the album including unique bonus outfit goodies: a 3 cm black metal pin with embossed white logo, an embroidered 10 cm black circle patch with band logo and 3 reversed crowns in silver and some bonus design material.
