Blutengel - Black

2017-10-22 (News)

The Dark Pop anthem "Black", is the title track and starting point for Blutengel's brand-new MCD, which also contains five new and previously unreleased songs.
After the anthemic song "Black" quickly became a fan- and band-favorite on Blutengel's latest tour, Chris Pohl decided to build a MCD, using it as a heart piece. The title song is a gripping fusion of the classic Eighties-Gothic-feeling with the trademark Blutengel-sound and is pretty much all that defines the group in a nutshell. The song is included in the album version and in 2 previously unreleased mixes.  Blutengel play out all their strengths here, while also trying out something new, which makes "Black" an ideal companion piece to the group's latest album "Leitbild".


ASP - Zutiefst

2017-10-21 (News)

ASP descend into the most unfathomable depths of the human soul. On "Zutiefst" Alexander ‘Asp' Spreng concentrates quite clearly on that which the fans love and which makes this band so special: Ten spooky musical short stories that contain that finely distilled skill, and which constitute what is probably the shortest ever literary work. Each song knows how to captivate with its very own fantastic plot, and as ASP sets to work, he does so full of gusto.

Rroyce - Karoshi

2017-10-20 (News)

Electropop band Rroyce returns with their second album "Karoshi". Karoshi is a japanese term for death by a sacrifice job. The idea for the album title was born during the production progress of the album while the band members often had to find a middle way in between the love for the music, being private family men and their own dayly job routine.
"Karoshi" is also an album which has some strong social messages. The album cover was designed by Irene Berbee. The Deluxe version of "Karoshi" features massive six (!) bonus tracks starting with some acoustic version of "The Dying of your Pride" and "The Principle of Grace" which give you goose bumps while listening, followed by four massive remixes from well known bands such as Eisfabrik, Rotersand, Beborn Beton or Neuroticfish who gave the songs their very own brand.

Ginger Snap5 - Against The Days

2017-10-18 (News)

Ginger Snap5 are Roman Soroka and Alex Pavluk. Their forthcoming album is highly modern and well-produced. "Against The Days" shows a matured band that is still committed to a hybrid of dense, upbeat EBM with glitchy Future Pop, all topped off by Roman Sorokas unique vocals. The title "Against The Days" expresses everyday struggle of lives torn between stress, pressure and, above all, war and the invasion of the protagonists' home country - Ukraine.

Our Banshee - 4200

2017-10-17 (News)

Mark Verhaeghen and Dirk Ivens are a duo that can agree on a joint artistic vision and modus operandi, where result may be something greater than just the sum of its parts. Our Banshee, with Agi Taralas and Stefan Böhm are just about to release their debut record "4200", you can already state that this collaboration is a convergence of talent with great potential. These two very different musical backgrounds resulted in an electronic work with a lot of character. "4200" does have a certain EBM feel, variety and some other quality that would suit every album well: great songwriting and strong vocals.
