Inkubus Sukkubus - Heartbeat of the Earth

2017-04-26 (News)

This is a reissue of the Inkubus Sukkubus album ‘Heartbeat of the Earth' originally released in 1995, it was the third album released by Inkubus Sukkubus and has been out of print for over 10 years. It was their ‘transition' album, the album which saw them successfully blend Gothic Rock, Folk and Metal with a big orchestral wall of sound and pagan lyrics to produce what was at the time something truly unique & which predated the fantasy metal genre of the likes of Nightwish, Within Temptation and Evanescence who formed that same year.
'Heartbeat of the Earth' is the template for the next 18 Inkubus Sukkubus albums. The power and the passion of the wild pagan world, the beautiful lilting melancholy, the anguish, the torment, the ecstasy and the joy of which the Inkubus Sukkubus Universe is comprised, are all here. The album is presented here with very slightly updated artwork to the original 1995 first release.

Selofan - Cine Romance

2017-04-21 (News)

Once you enter Selofans' "Ciné Romance" you will never want to leave again. 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.

Mesh - Runway

2017-04-20 (News)

"Runway" is the second single from the latest Mesh's album. 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.

The Vacant Lots - Endless Night

2017-04-20 (News)

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.
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".
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.
