Mono Inc. - Together Til the End

This is the ninth album by German rock band Mono Inc. This is a larger than life band that need to be approached in this context. Together Till the End is full of colourful rock that has Gothic/electronic flavours to it. The band deal in tunes that are infectious and addictive. Their music is full of singalong anthems and catchy choruses.

In Strict Confidence - The Hardest Heart

The Hardest Heart is a perfect combination of classic electro/EBM elements and dramatic dark alternative. The new album is beautifully diverse, allowing the listener to dive into a mix of emotions. Dennis Ostermann's signature vocals & emotive lyrics anchor an album that is electronically aggressive, deeply melancholic & boldly danceable. In Strict Confidence's finest work to date.

Eisfabrik - Achtzehnhundertunderfroren

Second album by the very HOT (despite their name...) German Dark Electro project! Musically, the band fluctuates somewhere between dark electro and future pop with a clear focus on catchiness and cool harmonies! The sound is not comparable to any previously known band..

Eisfabrik - Achtzehnhundertunderfroren

Already 200 years ago the electro-pop pioneers from the EISFABRIK came up with the idea for their current album. This work of art was already conceived in the year 1816, the "year without summer", and bears the name "eighteen hundredth of a century". In the North American region the album was already called "Eighteen hundred and frozen to death",

Project Pitchfork - Look Up, I'm Down There

The music of “Look Up, I'm Down There” is only half the reason as to why this release reaches new artistic heights. The lyricism reveals Peter Spilles' most personal introspections yet. Ruthless, direct and unfiltered, he is permitting a deep gaze into his inner most life. From its inception, intrigued by space and its infinite possibilities, “Look Up, I'm Down There” combines two sides of mankind´s epic history, seen through the eyes of a single individual.

Simple Minds - Acoustic

SIMPLE MINDS ACOUSTIC continues the band’s artistic quest with a one-off album release of stripped down and re-imagined songs spanning their eclectic and illustrious career. On the lead single Promised You A Miracle, the band are joined by fellow Scot KT Tunstall, whose distinctive vocals, acoustic strumming and rolling bass groove transform a piece of music that was the band’s first ‘pure pop song’ when it arrived in 1982.

RROYCE - Karoshi

 Well-made Synth Pop album that it’s worth to listen to not only once. The singer Casi convinces throughout the whole album with good sonorous vocal qualities. Furthermore it should not go unmentioned that it was masterfully produced by Dirk Riegner, well known for his own projects SECRET DISCOVERY, ALICE 2 and Schattenherz and his close collaboration with bands like GUANO APES and IN STRICT CONFIDENCE as well as with PETER HEPPNER and many others.

Diorama - Zero Soldier Army

“The songs were conceived in a time of increasingly complicated global crises which coincide with fanatical nationalisms and other delusions. We wanted to counteract our bewilderment in the face of the fiasco we’re heading towards with a term symbolising defencelessness and militancy at the same time – the ZERO SOLDIER ARMY,” explains Torben Wendt.

Assemblage 23 - Endure

With the new album, "Endure", Assemblage 23 furthers his distinctive place in the narrative of modern EBM and industrial. an intensely personal, & aptly titled look into the heart of the artist, Endure is a beautiful album engorged with emotion. There is an overarching feeling of resignation to push through the melancholia that the world can inspire, a determination to endure, and to thrive.
