V2A - Heretic

2017-02-23 (News)

With a steely riff, hypnotic beats and distorted vocals that barely betray earthly origins, V2A open the eternal gates to the underworld, and with their new album ‘Heretic’, ring in the soundtrack to the planet’s downfall. Morbidly threatening visions of abnormal worlds appear before your inner eye as the project ruminates on Valhalla and gradually sets you into a trance. The apocalyptic sound constructions, produced by Kevin Stewart (alias 304) and Ines Lehmann (alias 306), oscillate between EBM and industrial, enriched by dystopian technoid sounds.

Die Form - Psychic Poison

2017-02-21 (News)

Driven by an extremely nonchalant, juicy old-school EBM beat, the title track of this appetizer comes as a revolt against intolerance and inhumanity, a delightfully dark mantra for openness, for equal rights and for the liberal satisfaction of whatever your desires are. If Die Form have ever been carried by something, it was their unbreakable free will, their steadfast belief in themselves. The titles alone of the three exclusive variants accompanying this iridescent track give a good impression of what to expect: "Submission Mix", "Mental Terror Mix" and "Kobol Mix" add interesting new flavours to the foundation, interpreting the original song futuristic, harsh and hypnotic without neglecting the strong aura of the base.
