Kant Kino - Kopfkino

2017-01-10 (News)

More than ever, Kant Kino with "Kopfkino" manage here to intelligently combine ripping basslines, fast hammering electro beats with more melodic synth arrangements and catchy vocal lines.
A challenging sonic approach reminding us of how broad the spectrum of influences of the band members Lars and Kenneth can be. Strongly rooted in the early EBM style, Kant Kino with their new album explore and reflects how our minds run away to direct their own movies. Our minds being able to create both the best and worst thoughts in life…
This album version features 6 exclusive bonus tracks, but which are also accompanied by additional remixes and other unique fruitful collaborations with other bands and DJ’s.

Apocryphos, Kammarheit, Atrium Carceri - Echo

2017-01-09 (News)

Simon, Pär and Robert are back together again after their last album "Onyx".
"Echo" explores mankind's weakness to self destruction. As nature is cyclical so is man's will to destroy. Like a Moth drawn to pulsating light, the painful histories of the past echo with terrifying glee.
Rumbling drone hits your chest, a smooth contour of bass stroking a distant piano. Subdued humming flows out of Pär's nightly studio into the cold Swedish winter. Across the horizon Robert's angelic choirs boom. The smell of burnt circuits as he cranks his distortion to the melting point within the deep woods of Pennsylvania.

Written, Produced, Performed: Apocryphos - Robert Kozletsky, Kammarheit - Pär Boström, Atrium Carceri - Simon Heath.
Artwork & Mastering by Simon Heath.

Nine Inch Nails - Not The Actual Events

2016-12-27 (News)

"Not The Actual Events", the new 5 song EP finds Reznor and now official bandmate Atticus Ross taking an unexpected left turn from 2013’s "Hesitation Marks" and sounding unrecognizable from their current film work.
"It’s an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record that we needed to make" says Reznor. "It’s an EP because that ended up being the proper length to tell that story."

Rome - The Hyperion Machine

2016-12-22 (News)

The literary and philosophical subjects are just as diverse as the musical influences. The album features songs in the vein of Rome's trademark blends of Dark Folk ‘The Secret Germany', ‘Celine in Jerusalem' and Post Industrial Wave ‘Transference', ‘Skirmishes for Diotima'.
Moreover, fans will be delighted to find that the album also features a duet ‘Stillwell' with legendary Swedish singer and friend Thåström.
In many ways, ‘The Hyperion Machine' is a completely normal music album, and yet it is so much more than that. It forms a great, sensual commentary on the origins of the present, over and above the here and now.
