Lucifer's Aid has quickly established himself as one of the strongest new forces on the EBM scene over the last year with shows on all major festivals such as Wave Gotik Treffen, NCN, Amphi Festival, E- tropolis, Electronic Winter and Progress13 to name just a few. Something that we don’t think has ever been done within a one year time frame.

When he now returns with the MCD "Reconstruction" it is with such an unstoppable force of energy that all alternative dance floors around the world will simply be boiling. Straight, hard and club oriented versions on some of his already now classic tracks like "Deep Inside", "Future Mess" and "Unfollow Me" mixed with brand new tracks.

The mixes are backed up by two brand-new songs, the towering, darkly atmospheric "Black Hole", which was co-written by Mario Vaerewijck (ex-Insekt) and the thudding club-tune "I’d Die For You." Suicide Commando are back to invade your local dance floor and personal sound system – The end is near, so dance the apocalypse!

Rabia Sorda - The World Ends Today

2018-04-27 (News)

Bastards unite … because the world ends today! The Mexican-German band Rabia Sorda has recorded its hardest album to date under the competent hands of Nils Lesser (Cypecore). "The World Ends Today" will be released in May as a double CD including the bonus mini-album "Explota! (La Bomba En Mi Cabeza)".

A punch in your face with unbridled ire… that is probably the easiest and shortest way to describe Rabia Sorda’s new album "The World Ends Today." Thudding Electronica is in a constant clash with punky rhythms from drummer Maxx on a front of guitars from Marcus Engel to create an infernal foundation that whirling stage-dervish Erk Aicrag puts to excellent use to shout, scream and yell out his rage like there is no tomorrow. Nils Lesser’s tight mix wraps this smashing piece of wrath into a massive wall of noise that conveys the notion that Rabia Sorda might finally have arrived at the kind of sound that they always planned to achieve. Call it Metal, Industrial, Electro-Punk or whatever you wish… it doesn’t really matter, as you will be wanting to smash up the room and rock out of control after the first song, anyhow. On top of the 17 songs of the main album, the band also dishes up a bonus disc with 8 more new songs, experiments and remixes. The end is near! Let’s start a riot!

The Mission - Live at Rockpalast

2018-04-25 (News)

Arisen from the ashes of an early line-up of The Sisters of Mercy and founded by Craig Adams and Wayne Hussey in 1986, The Mission established its own distinctive profile at a very early stage. Apart from their very successful albums like "God's Own Medicine" (1986), "Children" (1988) and "Carved In Sand" (1989) in particular, The Mission established primarily as a live act, making both Rockpalast concerts essential viewing for a fan.

Without a doubt, The Mission had its first zenith in 1989/90 when the band entered the premier league of rock with the album "Carved in Sand". With "Butterfly on a Wheel" the band landed one of their biggest hits and live they were steadily turning into a celebrated stadium rock act. This was exactly the time when the first concert of this set was recorded – during the "Deliverance" tour. The near original line-up is consisting of Wayne Hussey, Craig Adams, Mick Brown, David Wolfenden and Paul Etchells. Not only does the show at the Philipshalle Düsseldorf on November 24, 1990, reflect the tremendous enthusiasm of the band as well as the density of The Mission's sound but it also contains all the recorded classics such as "Severina", "Butterfly on a Wheel" or "Tower of Strength"; and their congenial version of Neil Young's song "Like a Hurricane".In the course of their career, the band lived through countless sheddings of skin and changes of direction. So it was constantly being inspired and expanded by the switching players. In this respect, this concert was recorded about five years after their first Rockpalast performance and is a good example of their versatility: Not only does Wayne Hussey present himself with a short haircut but from the original line-up only the drummer Mick Brown remained. Guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (Tricky, Peter Murphy), keyboard player Rik Carter and Bass player Andy Cousin (of All About Eve) had joined the band for this TV performance. Despite the expanded line-up, The Mission delivered with songs such as "Hands across the Ocean" and "Deliverance". But the real brilliance is revealed with goosebumps creating interactions with the audience in touching ballads such as "Like A Child Again" and a searing rendition of the song "Swoon" which has reflections of the Bowie classic "Heroes".
