Cephalgy - Gott Maschine Vaterland

2017-02-15 (News)

On "Gott Maschine Vaterland" Cephalgy are channeling the essence of what makes up their sound to create one of the most explosive genre-albums in recent years. After a hiatus of more than 5 years, Cephalgy return with their long-awaited new long player. From the first notes, it is clear that the time was well invested. On "Gott Maschine Vaterland", Cephalgy effectively play to their strengths, creating a dark, dirty and simmered-down beast... a relentless machine of beats, bass and excursions into the dark sides of human emotions. Cephalgy manage to rejuvenate their roots and to penetrate your soul with a collection of strong tunes.

Blutengel - Leitbild

2017-02-14 (News)

The new album "Leitbild" is everything that makes Blutengel special in a nutshell: dark club-sounds, atmosphere galore, raw power, depth and anthems for emotional warriors, unfiltered and more multi-layered than ever before. Now, Blutengel have completed work on the eagerly awaited follow up to their "Save Us". The title "Leitbild" couldn't be more fitting, as the album is evolution, revolution, a testament to the group's maturation, a maelstrom of emotions and the most direct, honest and gripping experience they have ever treated us with. "Leitbild" is the essence of Blutengel, condensed into an album!

2nd Face - Nemesis

2017-02-13 (News)

"Nemesis" is an industrial electro album that makes for an intensive listening experience. Thanks to his multi-layered approach, 2nd Face mastermind Thorn easily blends rattling sequences of considerable heaviness with club compatibility. The album sounds both profound and tight, not least because the man is currently working towards becoming a professional studio engineer. On "Nemesis", he juggles an arsenal of synthesizers both more than 40 years old and modern.
Lyrically, Thorn tackles extreme situations and violence while always focusing on that which happens to us beyond this everyday drag - between the lines.
