Mentallo & The Fixer - Arrange The Molecule

2017-10-10 (News)

Mentallo & The Fixer with "Arrange The Molecule" confirms the undisputed sound singularity. This album is an open piece of art built on spiritual / scientific analogies, leaving the listener to choose how to perceive it.
"I feel for the time being, with "Arrange The Molecule", I’ve sorta topped out with the crazy ear candy", says Gary Dassing when describing it. The "Industrial Fusion" of sounds is as rhythmic and crazy as ever, this heavy release has more melody and structure than the previous two albums, creating some kind of controlled chaotic noise world dominated by a production level that literally blows you away!

Gothminister - The Other Side

2017-10-06 (News)

With tracks like "Devil" (Gothic Electronic Anthems 2003), "Monsters" (Empire of Dark Salvation 2005), "Darkside" (Happiness In Darkness2008), "Liar" (Anima Inferna 2011) and "Utopia" (Utopia 2013), the last single from the CD/DVD horror movie concept album, Gothminister has gotten a significant following of fans through the years.
His new album "The Other Side", produced, mixed and mastered by Henning Verlage (Unheilig, Eisbrecher), exceeds even the highest expectations. Powerful metal riffs march relentlessly arm in arm with huge orchestras and heavenly choirs. The Master himself reveals an astonishing range of vocal-art: from the deepest Gothic-dungeons up to the higher spheres of steaming Rock.
"The Other Side" is about spiritistic seances, and supernatural experiences. And again, Gothminister find it in the dark and unknown, where the greatest inspiration lies from within the motto: "Cause I have darkness on my mind - It is the sign of the times".

Near Earth Orbit - A.T.O.M

2017-10-05 (News)

A.T.O.M. (Abandoned Territories of Mankind) is a very cohesive, yet complex and absolutely epic piece of dark art; very hypnotic, sometimes almost psychedelic but often so very accumulative that simply calls for repetitive listening. It migh not be as coherent as the first album, not so dense and raw as the second and third chapter, but it's much more atmospheric and cinematic. It leads the listener through many emotional states of mind and offers more questions than answers to the whole story. Musically it starts in the similar vein where "Mission E.D.E.N." left off.
