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.

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.

Mildreda - Coward Philosophy

Fans of diskonnekted’s omnivorous approach to genre will find the same impulses reflected in the tracks on the LP; where the latter project integrates synthpop, alternative rock and breaks (amongst many other styles) into a melodic industrial milieu, Mildreda invokes the approach of Placebo Effect, Mentallo & The Fixer, The Klinik, and others in its dark electro compositions.

Davey Havok and Jade Puget – better known as one half of goth-punk royalty AFI – revive their electro side-project with ‘Material’. It’s another richly woven tapestry of dark-hearted fare which draws on influences as disparate as The Pet Shop Boys and Ministry with aplomb.

A solid debut from Sweden’s Rainmode, On is synthpop aimed at the modern masses. Gutsy chart-friendly synthpop deployed on the likes of “The Foghorn” make On well worth repeat listens. And who else can hear early Duran Duran in the deliciously smooth “Ballroom Barricades“?

Dear Strange - Lonely Heroes

Lonely Heroes is an album that captivates with its flow, with the inteligent revival of the new wave sound, its addictive dark atmospheric layers, great production, and unique post-modern sound, which the band called "prism wave".  Dear Strange made an album that just calls for many repetitive listens and is highly recommended to all those who are searching for something new in electronic music, for something addictive, yet sensual and in a strange way original.

Dead When I Found Her - All the Way Down

All The Way Down is, as its title insinuates, an extreme album. The darkness of the opening track Expiring Time is easily one of the most arresting pieces the industrial movement has had in memory. But the album is not just dark, and not just pre-occupied with death for the sake of it; it isn't bleak, it's downright honest, and frightening.

Eden Synthetic Corps - Sandwalkers

The work moves in between dark-EBM and (h)el(l)ectronics. It’s a powerful exposure of dark lyrical themes, which will not make you happy. The sound universe of this band covers pure defeatism, which has been transposed into a dynamic and enraged sound creation. Some of the songs are driven by hopping sequences while supported with icy leads. Some icy elements are filled with a kind of raw technoid touch, but I can assure you it all remains dark and tormented electronics from hell.

Eden Synthetic Corps - Sandwalkers

Continuously shaping their sound, ESC's fifth album features yet again lots of new elements: A broader range of vocals, joining trademark ESC beats with innovative melodies. Darker than ever and this time focused mainly on old civilizations, mythology and nomadic people, the new album is a breath of fresh air in the Electro-Industrial Scene and features 14 brand new tracks!

Diary of Dreams - Grau Im Licht

The lugubrious ‘Grau im Licht’ presents another deeply moving and evocative DIARY-record that is characteristically full of atmosphere. There's no doubt about it that the loyal DoD-following will celebrate the melodic melancholy on the one hand, and brute force, on the other, the profound and enigmatic lyrics, and the somber vocals in this new chapter to be released in October 16th, 2015.

Beborn Beton - A Worthy Compensation

"A Worthy Compensation" is a masterpiece of electronic pop - deep, timeless and melancholic with some well-dosed pathos. Songs and lyrics get under the skin in the long run, not least thanks to Olaf Wollschläger, who emphasises their strengths in an exceptional manner.

Beborn Beton - A Worthy Compensation

Due to Stefan Netschio's trademark voice and Stefan Tillmann's nifty songwriting, each track conveys a unique atmosphere without sounding rushed or forced - a rare thing for music from this genre. In this way, Beborn Beton naturally bridge the gap between the 1980s and current productions.
