PROJECT PITCHFORK - Look Up, I'm Down There

 
Since the dawn of time, man has been gazing at the night sky - longing, asking, searching and hoping. Are we truly alone in this dark cosmos? What's the meaning of it all? Wars, terror, hunger and pain – the 21st century is not exactly a benefiting epoch for humanity. Gazing outwards, though, is always like gazing inwards, too. “Look Up, I'm Down There”. We are right here, in the middle of you. What if we tell you the answers you are looking for are right here, in front of your very nose? What if we tell you there is still hope?

ROTERSAND - Capitalism TM

 
It is a subtle process, one that has been taking decades and that yet is not to be made undone. We become slaves without realizing it. Slaves to ourselves, biased towards exploiting ourselves in the name of self-fulfillment. We get sucked dry by treacherous achievements and allow ourselves to shatter our dreams to pieces. Man has become entangled in its own spider web, is becoming transparent in social media, consumes to fill the void, falls and does not even notice in his hubris. Welcome to this brave new world of our own design. Welcome to “Capitalism TM”.

ASP – GeistErfahrer

 
“It just won’t let you go!”
 
ASP are versatile. Changeable. Without compromise. They don’t always make it easy for their fans, because although ASP are one of the most entertaining and exciting bands that the German-language rock scene has to offer, they often cram their superficially seemingly entertaining songs with much more than is initially apparent.

more

ASP – LIVE … auf rauen Pfaden

 
In ten selected German cities, in each case across two consecutive nights, audiences were induced into a frenzy of enthusiasm by an extraordinary concert experience. On one evening, the band performed a ‘best of rock’ show featuring the greatest hits of their career to date. And on the other respective evening, singer Asp and his musicians presented a unique type of concert in the form of an intimate semi-unplugged show featuring new arrangements, rarely-heard pieces and long-lost treasures, especially for this anniversary tour.

NACHTMAHR – Mit vereinten Kräften

 
The strength of a commander is determined by the strength of his troops. They are the backbone of every operation, his eyes and ears, the very soul of it all. Few musical projects are as aware of that simple fact as is Thomas Rainer, Imperial Industrial goliath NACHTMAHR's Supreme commander. His rise to be the mightiest power the harsh electro scene has ever seen was as steep as it was unstoppable – despite all opposition. That is certainly due to his indefatigable commitment at every single front and to his uncompromising art. However, he wouldn't have come so far without the aid of his loyal comrades and fans. He is NACHTMAHR, you are NACHTMAHR, we are NACHTMAHR. And together, we are an invincible force.

SCHEUBER - The Me I See

Love is the essence of a soul.
 
They are still out there somewhere: The true artists. These driven and dedicated individuals pouring their entire self into their music, laying bare their hearts no matter at what cost. For better or for worse and against all odds, these people hope for salvation. It may very well be that their number dwindles, that less and less artists truly connect their music with their soul. That is what makes the remaining ones so precious. So important.

ROME - The Hyperion Machine

Good stories always have a bit of prehistory. Good albums too, because they tell a good story. That’s why, every now and again in our standardized music world, an album appears whose history began even before the very first note arose. That is definitely true in the case of the new CD from the Luxembourgian project ROME.

PROJECT PITCHFORK – Wonderland / One Million Faces
– remastered and extended


Another generation is here. Yet, the fascination for PROJECT PITCHFORK is unbroken. The worth of the endeavour founded by Peter Spilles in 1991 is bigger than ever, the role as a pioneer, as a true icon rests calmly on his shoulders. Although PROJECT PITCHFORK are in the spotlight for a quarter of a century now (as they always have been and will be), there's still a lot to discover in this influential discography. A dive into the past reveals records whose rediscovery is as rewarding as revisiting a place that holds a particular emotional connection.

IMATEM – Home + Journey


It's impossible not to think of PROJECT PITCHFORK as soon as someone mentions Peter Spilles. In the last 25 years, the Hamburg based artist has been constantly evolving his lifetime work, has made this project become a colossus of the international Electro movement. Yet, it is only one facet of his creation, only one expression of his restless mind. Committing himself to art, to the scene and to solidarity for a quarter of a century now, it is first and foremost his playground IMATEM that highlights Peter Spilles' significance within this scene.

MANTUS – Refugium

more

MANTUS – Refugium


It is always easier to look away. To suppress the truth instead of facing it. Ugly facts like these have turned the world into a barren place, have turned humanity into a disease swelled by resentment, malevolence and jealousy. Yet, they prepare the ground for artists like him: Martin Schindler, a uniquely abyssic poet in a genre rich in apocalyptic weaponry. A restless figure like him is not untouched by the madness this world has come to. Because he doesn't look away. Because he doesn't suppress anything. It doesn't get easier by this, that's for sure. Still, it turns every new MANTUS record into a cleansing catharsis.

NACHTMAHR – Kampfbereit


It is true. History is written by the victors. Yet, behind this proverb hides more than meets the eye. The legends are keen on glorious triumphs, the people are possessed by singing songs about their heroes' baffling victories. However, the headwind worthy a hurricane, the iron will necessary to prevail, the unhesitant self-abandonment with daggers drawn, is often dwarfed to a mere marginalia in the books of history. Art is no different here, and hardly anybody is more aware of that than Thomas Rainer.

ROME - Coriolan

L’ÂME IMMORTELLE – Unsterblich


L'ÂME IMMORTELLE... the very mention of that name strikes a chord, unleashes an army of goosebumps on the back of anybody equating music with acoustic emotion L'ÂME IMMORTELLE... introductions are unnecessary, to be sure. They are a scene legend, a band always at the top of their game despite their reluctance to stagnate, a band enriching the Gothic movement like few others in the 20 years of their existence. For two decades now, they have been writing history, have been cladding our woe in moving compositions.

PROJECT PITCHFORK – Second Anthology


The blood hasn't dried yet. Since PROJECT PITCHFORK unleashed their overpowering and accusing manifest „Blood“, the gears didn't come to a halt yet. Extensive touring, a triumphant festival run and countless DJ gigs around the world naturally leave a sparse amount of time for other activities. Still, Peter Spilles wouldn't be Peter Spilles if he wouldn't be endlessly conspiring, plotting and scheming behind the scenes. More than once in recent years he surprised us with a brand new monster of a studio album which is why his restlessly creative genius will also make 2016 a decidedly good year for PROJECT PITCHFORK followers. Something is moving behind the curtains. Time to lift them.

SPIELBANN – In Gedenken


“Dust they are and yet they cannot part.” It is with words like these that SPIELBANN guide into their realms. They go well with the heavy and brooding sounds unleashed by this newcomer extraordinaire: The Gothic Rock ensemble tells tales of tragic intensity, studies-become-music of the human character - instantly enthralling the listeners. SPIELBANN, this much is clear, is more than a band. Five individual characters, all their hearts dedicated to the spirit of Gothic and Dark Rock, came together to free the dark scene's music of its all too often suffocating corset. Thus, they create something unique within the realms of music – “In Gedenken” being the quintet's first milestone.

ASP - Verfallen - Folge 1: Astoria


October 16th  2015 sees the release of the first part of a new narrative by ASP. For this album, Songwriter and Singer Asp has turned “Das Fleisch der Vielen” (“The flesh of many”), a haunting short story exclusively written for this compelling project by bestselling German author Kai Meyer, into a melodious horror tale. The album cycle “Fremd”, its current release “Maskenhaft” having peaked on the Media Control Charts at Number 2, will be continued after the completion of the second part of VERFALLEN.

ROME – Anthology 2005-2015


A man with his guitar on an otherwise empty stage. A shroud of blue smoke. A lonely spotlight. A timeless aesthetic of solitude and submersion radiates off this picture, an aesthetic reappearing time and time again in 20th century music history: the restless seeker, the bohemian troubadour. Jerome Reuter embodies, breathes and feeds this aesthetic. A devoted traveler himself, Jerome Reuter has been expressing his musical visions with his project ROME since 2005, bleeding himself out on ten albums (and various other official releases) in as many years.

SAMSAS TRAUM – Poesie: Friedrichs Geschichte


For 19 years now, SAMSAS TRAUM have been confronting us with their extraordinary music and interesting lyrics. Over the last two decades, the band centred around the controversial, charismatic and much-discussed frontman ALEXANDER KASCHTE have had a fling with just about every musical style imaginable. They are one of the last remaining German bands who still know how to spring a surprise in this dying and inconsequential, unimaginative musical landscape – both qualitatively and in terms of content.

SIECHTUM - Zeiten:Wende


Legends, luminaries, pioneers... the inflationary use of terms like these has long since obliterated their meaning. Today, any given newcomer is nothing but an immortal star, any mediocre signing of a major label tomorrow's icon. Superficiality and our fast-paced lifestyle have undermined true integrity; real art has been replaced by meaningless rubbish. High time to focus on what really counts and to direct our attention on those who have deserved it.

ROME – A Passage To Rhodesia (DigiCD)


DIGIPAK RE-RELEASE OF THE LIMITED BOX EDITION.
“A Passage to Rhodesia” is ROME's tenth album, but it's safe to say it's one of the most important releases in its long-standing career. The album unites instant dark folk classics such as “A Farewell to Europe” and “One Fire” with ambient collages in the best industrial and experimental traditions. Mastermind Jerome Reuter has accomplished a great swirling devil of a record, an epic and tragic masterpiece of considerable scale, rich in theme and philosophic inquiry.

ROTERSAND – Truth Is Fanatic Again (DigiCD)


When a fairly unknown band called ROTERSAND released their debut record ten years ago, the scene was suddenly full of murmuring. What was behind that trio with the strange name? And why did their first work „Truth is Fanatic“ become an overnight sensation in clubs, DAC charts and playlists all around the world? The answer is extraordinary and yet obvious: Because the Electro project achieved something permanent. Something viable beyond any trend or current whatsoever. Something real.

What is left to say about PROJECT PITCHFORK? About a band responsible for an entire genre and hordes of epigones and that yet was never willing to give up the throne? Is not the sheer mass of classic anthems that already lure the second generation of Dark Electro disciples onto the dancefloors worth more than that? Is not an anecdote like the one of PROJECT PITCHFORK having taken a certain band called RAMMSTEIN as their tour support weighing more than every single word?

ASP – Per Aspera Ad Aspera


“15 years ASP! He invited to a masquerade, he opened his Dark Tower, he locked us into a mill with Krabat, he crawled from his cocoon: Asp Spreng is an artist with many faces. A man holding the mirror up to us while hiding behind a mask at the same time, a genius incredibly talented in kindling musical candles for this world of darkness. The true identity of the man behind the mask, the identity of him responsible for all these songs, the identity of the phantom lurking deep down in our own imagination, however, is secondary. It is his art that counts. It is the works he brought us. It is the music that will remain.

TYING TIFFANY – Drop


It is always the same with those muses. Much too often, they cast their spells briefly, fit a certain event, moment, a zeitgeist forgotten much too quickly. Those who want to pass the test of time need to have more than just good lucks or a fair share of luck. They need to establish trends instead of copying them, need to lead where others follow. And that's exactly what TYING TIFFANY is doing since 2005. She floats through her very own seducing cosmos, enchants with a style that is as authentic as it is flawless, provides fresh impulse with her unmistakable sound. With „Drop“, she dives even deeper down into her universe of technoid Electro, Wave, Ambient and Indie.

The end of an era:
We danced, we burned, we bled. For years, we witnessed the battle between Asp and the Black Butterfly. On numerous occasions, we gazed down from the Dark Tower over the land. We descended into the lightless depths and felt the horror of the void. We cried, laughed, hoped and despaired, side by side.

MANTUS – Portrait aus Wut und Trauer


What remains when words fail? When hope dies and the distant light at the end of this dark tunnel is extinguished forever? For more than 14 years, MANTUS have the answer to that. What remains is music. Is euphonic emotion. That is the reason for Martin Schindler's acoustic exorcism to exist. Since his very beginnings with MANTUS, he sets anger, grief and hopelessness to music, brings all these shattering emotions to the surface that are impossible for anybody to articulate.

CLAN OF XYMOX - Matters of Mind, Body and Soul


Ronny Moorings just doesn't run out of good ideas. Which is impressing indeed as he has been giving the traditional Goth community a treat in first-class sonic darkness since 1984. 30 years of CLAN OF XYMOX is an impressive anniversary and the final proof that this band is among the last, biggest and most essential bands of a very special genre. Just laying back, though, is still out of the question for the Dutch scene pioneer with that characteristic beehive on his head: Instead of a best-of, a re-issue or a live album, he delivers the all-new studio album „Matters of Mind, Body and Soul“ that above everything else stands for one thing: CLAN OF XYMOX still are the Gothic scenes' big spin doctors.

NACHTMAHR – Feindbild


The Cold War in the Industrial scene is heating up. Hostilities, calls for boycott, open animosity and harsh competitiveness dominate a genre that was once known for its unity. The stumbling block was, is and always will be NACHTMAHR. Not, however, because NACHTMAHR is the true enemy. Rather because NACHTMAHR is the concept of an enemy to all those who envy THOMAS RAINER's success and want to dethrone him. Now he dedicates an album to all these people. „Feindbild“ is its name. Reign supreme it will – and deliver the new national anthem for his Industrial empire with the stomping opener „Wir sind zurück“ („We are back“).

High time to find something for the pain – prescribed for the band as well as the rest of the world with the brand new „best of“ of the same name.

ROME – Hate Us And See If We Mind


JEROME REUTER certainly does not give a toss about anyone's expectations. While some are still trying to get a handle on last year's soul-baring ‘Hell Money’ and its stylistic twist, Reuter now releases a monumental industrial/folk EP, on which the old industrial influences are not only reincorporated into ROME's musical landscape, but are taken quite a step further. ’The Colony’, an almost 40-minute-long industrial tour-de-force divided into two separate tracks, is the main course here: a barrage of textures, bleak industrial loops, straight-forward noise and eerie dark ambient soundscapes with a distinctive ROMEan feel are mixed into one soothing cocktail.

ASP – Maskenhaft


We all wear masks.
A new chapter for ASP – The essence of ‘gothic novel rock’
 
ASP are an unfathomable phenomenon in the German music scene. For years now they have been unresting, with blazing passion, constantly winning themselves an ever-larger audience far beyond any scene boundaries. At the same time they remain true to themselves and their music and regularly manage to achieve high positions in the official German music charts – completely without following mainstream trends. Fans of challenging lyrics and profound rock music have long since been aware that compositions of great strength and soothing melancholy are hidden away behind the gruesome makeup and the often alarming content. Up until now, hardly any band has managed to deliver entertaining and at the same time socio-critical content in the way that they have so skillfully managed in the atmospheric cosmos of this project.

SAMSAS TRAUM – Leben bedeutet kämpfen


If you were to sum up the past two decades of SAMSAS TRAUM’s existence, some of the key words and phrases you could use would be: a 17-year history, ten studio albums, countless remix cooperations and side projects, appearances in the charts, sold-out venues and legendary concerts, legions of contented fans and pure provocation! No other band has polarised the gothic scene to such an extent and no other combo has stirred up so much controversy in the metal scene. No other project has ever been so passionately discussed and dissected, attacked and defended, hated and loved, all in equal measure.

Mantus – Fatum


Onwards and upwards – that was the direction the sorrowful poets MANTUS took in recent years. Annually, new albums and brimful EPs were released, each and every one of them bested by ever new impulses from the somber creative mastermind of MARTIN SCHINDLER. After a matchlessly creative phase that has been running since 2009, the artist backpedals for the first time – and arranges a retrospective impressively showcasing all that MANTUS did for the Gothic scene in recent years.

SAMSAS TRAUM - Niemand, niemand anderem als dir


SAMSAS TRAUM’s 2012 epic ‘Asen’ka – ein Märchen für Kinder und solche, die es werden wollen’ brought them great success. The album was highly acclaimed by the specialist press and was enthusiastically received by fans; indeed, the limited first edition sold out in record time. Mastermind ALEXANDER KASCHTE now presents a sister release to that magnum opus. ‘Niemand, niemand anderem als dir’ presents the songs from ‘Asen’ka…’ in a totally different light: as epic, grandiose, stirring, instrumental neo-classical versions.

SPIRITUAL FRONT - Open Wounds


Songs are like open wounds.
 
Music can hurt. Can strike new wounds and tear up old ones. No one is more aware of this than SIMONE „HELLVIS“ SALVATORI. His feverish music is a diary of his failures and triumphs, a deep scar running through his work. He finds pleasure in the pain it causes him, sheds tears for the lust it evokes in him. Like an Italian JOHNNY CASH, he clads his life in intimate ballads of becoming and withering, of sex and death. SPIRITUAL FRONT is the Folk Noir crossbreed of ENNIO MORRICONE and NICK CAVE – Suicide Pop from a decadent otherworld.

ZEROMANCER – Bye-Bye Borderline


Kiss your loved ones goodbye, turn around one last time and burn down the bridges to your old life. No one can join you on this way. No one but this very special band from Norway who deliver the finest soundtrack to your very own apocalypse ever since they started playing in 1999. More than once, the music for your dying world, the symphony of your self-destruction came from ZEROMANCER. Now, they are finally back. And sound more intense, more stricken and determined than they did in a long time.

First a double strike, then the big hush: After “Sinners International” and “The Death Of Romance” were released with barely a year between these two masterpieces, Norway's Electro Rock connoisseurs vanished from view. Except for their unforgettable live appearances, the ZEROMANCER camp fell silent, a whole three years had to pass until a new album was finally born. “Bye-Bye Borderline” is its name – and sounds like a perfect embodiment of the title: Melancholic, bipolar, in one moment brimful with positive energy, in another falling into a bottomless depth. Sure, pleasure and pain share the same bed. Yet, nobody knew until now they were really that close: With the trained eye for pain and sorrow that made hymns like “My Little Tragedy” to milestones of melancholy in recent years, ZEROMANCER advance with new determination, armed to the teeth with the biggest of emotions. Love, hate, desperation or sacrifice are not only empty words for ZEROMANCER, but razor-sharp songs for the next breakdown. Electro Rock mysticism in the purest sense of the word – sensual, highly erotic and altogether much too dangerous.

Songs like “Auf Wiedersehen Boy”, the big closing monument “Tortured Artist” or the biting title track prove just how much anger and bitterness piled up in the last three years. They drag a raw Industrial Rock edge back into the ZEROMANCER sound that finally stands for all things dark, infamous and forbidden again. But ZEROMANCER are more than that: The slow-motion serenade of self-destruction called “Manoeuvres” would even stir emotions in a rotten heart. Ambivalent, layered, passionate and abysmal is the guise of “Bye-Bye Borderline” – beginning with the title itself. Do ZEROMANCER sing about healing or disease? About life or death? “Ash Wednesday” certainly is on death's side, although hope seeps through some of the wonderful melodies like the sun through thick clouds. Dance, cry, hush or hope – no matter what it is: ZEROMANCER have just the right music for it. More intimate, more intense Electro Rock has yet to be invented.

PROJECT PITCHFORK – Black


Black is the sanctuary of light.

What follows when you leave space behind? When you move into worlds beyond time and space? When quantum mechanics made it possible to venture into seemingly strange dimensions? In 2013, PROJECT PITCHFORK dwell on these questions and answer them already with the title of their newest album “BLACK” without losing themselves in the process: “In the emptiness of space, the biggest of all suns could shine right behind you but your eye would only behold utter darkness” - and with “BLACK”, PROJECT PITCHFORK enlighten these hidden worlds of our reality.

SAMSAS TRAUM - Asen'ka
- Ein Märchen für Kinder und solche, die es werden wollen


It’s a long time since SAMSAS TRAUM cast a spell over us with a concept album: one with an interrelated story that transports us away from reality; with delightful, peculiar characters and with music and lyrics from another world that leave us entranced. After the albums ‘Tineoidea’ and ‘a.Ura’, both of which were greatly acclaimed in the scene, the band ran creative riot upon the killing fields of symphonic (black) metal, neofolk and death ’n’ roll – all battles which brought SAMSAS TRAUM high chart positions and well-deserved recognition. However, in the minds of their fans, a big question remained unanswered: when will the (in)famous storyteller ALEXANDER KASCHTE, who resides in the Brothers Grimm-like town of Marburg, once again carry us off into the abyss of his soul with a new fairytale? Will he ever again grant us a glimpse of that nebulous imagery from the depths of his imagination? The answer that many hadn’t reckoned with is:

Yes – and indeed now.

NACHTMAHR – Veni Vidi Vici


A battle is raging in the Colosseum of the global Industrial movement. A battle for ascendancy, for power, for dominance. Above the bloody events, eyes not wavering from the battlefield, the sovereign of Imperial Industrial, the leader of an empire, stands and beholds. He observes warriors vainly trying to live up to him, he grants them their weak attempt – only to point his thumb down in the end nonetheless. “Ad bestiam” with the rivals! One envier, one hater, one impersonator after the other is thrown to the wolves while Thomas Rainer indulges the debaucheries of a decadent Roman emperor at the banquet of the victorious. And the empire trembles with veneration.

MANTUS - Wölfe


„Homo homini lupus“ (Titus Maccius Plautus)

In every end there is a start. Every dying era is succeeded by a new age. MANTUS had to learn that the hard way: Only recently, long-time female vocalist Thalia left the band. But instead of getting disheartened by this serious blow, Martin fought on nonetheless, found a wonderful new companion in Chiara and took on the burden of existence, everyday life and society once more. With the new MANTUS album „Wölfe“ („wolves“), the first chapter of this new era has officially begun. Available at the ASP/ MANTUS fall tour for the first time, this work once again proves to be a canalization of all that which makes us despair in life.

SANTA HATES YOU - It’s ALIVE!


Thunder growls through the night like a starving wolf. Lightning rips the sky, clads the castle in a piercing glow for a matter of split seconds. Heavy rain is falling like lead, drums on the roof of the highest tower. There is still light glowing in the topmost chamber – the flutter of countless candles. Deformed shadows creep across the walls, sizzling, boiling and crackling sounds emerge into the night. An electric blow whips through the darkness, followed by a dull sound. A crooked figure appears at the window, raises its arms into the air… “It’s ALIVE!” it screams.

CLAN OF XYMOX - Kindred Spirits


The darkest hour is over. Leipzig-based Goth pioneer Ronny Moorings has lead CLAN OF XYMOX through the valley of tears and braced himself for new deeds after his last, downright elegiac and hopeless Dark Wave manifesto “Darkest Hour”. It still is not exactly a lot of light looming at the distant end of the tunnel – but it is proof enough after this bleak album that every night, however dark it may be, is eventually followed by a new dawn.

In September 2011 the world experienced the final SAMSAS TRAUM tour: mastermind ALEXANDER KASCHTE unexpectedly announced that he didn’t want to play live any more and that the tour in late summer would mark his final sendoff from the stage. With their latest album ‘Anleitung zum Totsein’ in the bag, SAMSAS TRAUM embarked on a two and a half week journey through Germany and Austria for that final tour, culminating in a breathtaking concert in the Matrix in Bochum: that legendary club in which SAMSAS TRAUM had already enjoyed huge success at the beginning of their career, and at which the Ruhr Valley audience proved themselves, as always, to be particularly passionate.

While recording their bloodcurdling debut album ‘Kunst-X=?’, the band based around SAMSAS TRAUM mastermind ALEXANDER KASCHTE caused a fire in the studio. The iconic and likewise long since sold out follow-up ‘Kadaverkomplex’, which commands astronomical sums on eBay, appeared a few days before the school massacre in Erfurt, Germany and yet due to the megahit ‘Kugel im Gesicht (9mm)’ (English translation: ‘Bullet in the face (9mm)’) appeared briefly in the charts and was (mis)used by ResistantX, who carried out a shooting spree in Emsdetten, in the soundtrack to his violent videos.

From the very beginning, BLACK HEAVEN was much more than the mere side project of MANTUS mastermind Martin Schindler.

Now, three years after the last album, BLACK HEAVEN returns – with the equally long awaited and essential „Dystopia“.

SAMSAS TRAUM - Anleitung zum Totsein


The master of symphonic gothic music, the undisputed king of German fairytale-metal is back – ALEXANDER KASCHTE presents a new studio album by his controversial band SAMSAS TRAUM. The last three SAMSAS TRAUM releases were rather experimental in nature: with the black metal hurricane ‘Heiliges Herz’, the intimate acoustic ‘Wenn schwarzer Regen’ and the death ‘n’ roll birthday release ‘13 Jahre lang dagegen – Anti bis zum Tod’ (which doesn’t count as an official release), the ‘Käferkönig’ materialised firing on all cylinders. The latest album ‘Anleitung zum Totsein’ returns to the band’s roots and skilfully combines all of the SAMSAS TRAUM motifs into a thrilling and intense hour of music. Bombastic orchestration collides with massive walls of guitars and violent bass attacks interweave with deadly accurate drum salvos to form a homogenous whole which lays the foundations for KASCHTE’s inimitable singing and vocal acrobatics.

:GOLGATHA: - The Horns Of Joy


Over the last few years the German group :GOLGATHA:, who were founded in 2004 as a dark ambient band, have succeeded in cultivating their own unique style via a series of ambitious concept albums and live appearances. They describe this style as ‘ritual folk’: their highly original fusion of percussive world music elements with ethereal female vocals and earthy folk songs conjures up the spirits of DEAD CAN DANCE, IN THE NURSERY and JOCELYN POOK as well as those of LEONARD COHEN, SOL INVICTUS and CURRENT 93. Sounds of enraptured beauty come up against dark ecstacies and pessimistic visions. ‘The Horns of Joy’ is dedicated to the nihilistic tendencies of the early 20th century – and their necessary overcoming.

ROME - Our Holy Rue/The Merchant Fleet


Gone! Gone are the days of mellow and lush ballads, it seems - for this is ROME at its rawest! As an artist Jerome Reuter remains completely unpredictable, which may come as a shock to those who discovered ROME as a Chanson Noir outfit: What you are looking for is gone for good! "Our Holy Rue" is a harsh, industrial beauty: relentless and uncompromising. And the rather folkish song "The Merchant Fleet" is an instant classic, dedicated to Jerome's brotherhood of the sea!

ASP - The Complete Schwarzer Schmetterling Cycle


The end of an era:
ASP – the complete Schwarzer Schmetterling cycle I-V.
The ultimate retrospective.

 
We danced, we burned, we bled. For years and years, we witnessed the battle between Asp and the Black Butterfly, gazed from the Dark Tower into the land, descended into the dark depths and felt the horror of the void. We cried, laughed, hoped and despaired, side by side.

THE GIRL & THE ROBOT - Silence * Borderline


When formulating his Three Laws of Robotics in 1942, Isaac Asimov would never have reckoned that one day, a pretty girl would of all things get involved with one of these heartless, calculating, programmatic machines he later seminally described in “I, Robot”. Otherwise, he would have put one law far above the other laws that robots are not allowed to hurt humans, have to obey humans as well as have to protect themselves: If a girl and a robot are about to make music together, this relationship is to be supported.

ROME - Masse Mensch Material

After two successful albums, "Nera" and "Confessions d’un voleur d’âmes", ROME blessed us with its 12-track-knock-out "Masse Mensch Material" -which holds more than one musical surprise! ROME‘s particular brand of post-industrial folk, combined with new-wave song-writing and neo-classical arrangements, takes on a new and poppy twist.

How would the classic Dark Wave from the eighties sound today? Which path would the cult acts of the legendary 4AD label take with the possibilities of our modern world? As an answer to these questions, CLAN OF XYMOX deliver their foreboding 13th studio album “Darkest Hour” – an enthralling journey through the past, present and future of gloomy Goth/Dark Wave sounds.

PROJECT PITCHFORK - First Anthology


In the summer of 2010, PROJECT PITCHFORK put us through their infernally intense Dark Electro journey named “Continuum Ride”. It was nothing less than the temporary climax of an unparalleled career that dates back to the year 1991 and boasts impressive cornerstones: Two decades of musical history, 13 studio albums, hundreds of gigs and countless cover stories lie behind mastermind Peter Spilles and his comrades Dirk Scheuber and Jürgen Jansen. And still not even the faintest sign of fatigue, as the groundbreaking quality of “Continuum Ride” or a fantastic rank 21 in the German Album Charts impressively prove.

SCHWARZER ENGEL - Träume einer Nacht


He brought us the ‘Apokalypse’ and destroyed everything in order to build his own empire upon the world’s wreckage. The empire in which ‘Der Herr der Krähen’ sacrifices himself unto the ‘Träume einer Nacht’. But whoever thought that calm would return after the last battle, and who believes that the dreams of the SCHWARZER ENGEL comprise delightful pictures and contemplative sounds… is mistaken, luckily.

MANTUS - Zeichen


Ever since MANTUS broke the long silence in 2009 with their “Requiem”, the project resides in an era of unequalled creativity that bestowed two outstanding releases upon the Gothic scene in 2010 – the album “Demut” and the interpretation of William Blake’s epos “The Marriage of Heaven and Hell”. This creative epoch is continued in 2011: Not a year after the ambitious concept album, the ninth record “Zeichen” (“Signs”) is about to be set free.

Only a few months after the release of its first full-length album "Nera", ROME was back yet again to show that it's here to stay.

EXT!ZE - Paradize 2069


At home in the buzzing and relentless cyberspace like no other electro project, EXT!ZE truly stirred up the electro scene in the previous year. With provocative singles like “Gothic Pussy” or the futuristic nightmares on the debut “FallOut Nation” the German-French friendship unmistakably clarified that their music, however convincing, is far from everything these neon-colored dancefloor terrorists have to offer – no matter whether on stage, in the clubs or in the homes of the swelling ranks of followers.

You think you got away with your lives? You think the apocalypse spared you? Think again: The end of the world has only just begun.
 
After his endtime debut “Apokalypse”, SCHWARZE ENGEL again soars skywards to spread his baleful visions, to whisper demonic messages into our nightmares and to darken the skies with his majestic wings. On his brandnew EP “Geister und Dämonen” (“Ghosts and Demons”), the Lord of the Crows raises the unutterable shadows of his soul from their deathlike slumber, unleashing them among us in the shape of four news hymns to the end of the world.

SANTA HATES YOU - P.A.N.I.C.


While the devastating impact of the „Crucifix Powerbomb“ still resonates, the unpredictable Electro dervishes SANTA HATES YOU already cause new global panic attacks. Having titled the last album after a fatal move from the flashing world of Wrestling, the duo now chooses a much more heated approach: With their new EP “PANIC”, PROJECT PITCHFORK boss Peter Spilles and his peccable comrade Jinxy unleash the “PostApocalypticNudeIndustrialCorps” to fortify their dominance in the worldwide clubs – using all the means necessary to achieve this goal.

PROJECT PITCHFORK - Continuum Ride


„Dream, Tiresias!“ was only the beginning. A serious shot across the bow for all those who already saw PROJECT PITCHFORK heading for an early retirement. In 2010, Peter Spilles takes the gloves off and gets down to business: Little more than a year after the impressive comeback success, the Dark Electro pioneer prepares for the mightiest strike so far. Seemingly out of nothing, PROJECT PITCHFORK fire “Continuum Ride” out of their orbit, an album even a genius like Spilles was unlikely to make.

GOETHES ERBEN - Zeitlupe


An entire songbook of praising anthems is necessary to do proper justice to a group like GOETHES ERBEN. Founded in 1989, the early nineties saw the project evolve to become a figurehead of the juvenile German Gothic movement that would eventually mould the scene like very few projects before.

KIRLIAN CAMERA - Not Of This World


It is most unnecessary to speak about KIRLIAN CAMERA's standing within the Gothic scene. For an impressive three decades now, the Italian project delivers somber electronic sound odysseys far away from any current pattern. Always deeply atmospheric, always unique, always characteristic: From the legendary mini album “Kirlian Camera” (1981) to the last studio work “Coroner’s Sun” (2006), an artistic vision between epic otherworldly darkness and passionate emotion always marked the centre of this band.

Above the ravaged battlefields of human civilisation, ‘the lord of the crows’ arises: a black angel (schwarzer Engel in German) which is menacing yet beautiful; alarming and full of fury; fascinating and disturbing.

ROME - Nos Chants Perdus


Over a series of remarkable concept albums, the Luxembourgish band ROME have developed a totally unique ‘poetry of longing’ which rings out from the dark melancholic mist of rootlessness and which gives expression to a comprehensive feeling of modern forlornness. The protagonists of their music are the unintentional ‘rebels’ of Camus (The Rebel; original: L’Homme révolté), contemporaries from the turbulent epochs of the 20th century: the banished and the hunted; the despised and the misunderstood – always enemies of dictatorship.

This is what the songs of Jerome Reuter are about, firmly in the tradition of his declared heroes JACQUES BREL and LÉO FERRÉ, (on earlier albums also TOM WAITS and NICK CAVE). As regards content, Rome are inspired by world literature and the observant listener will be able to detect references to and quotations from ALBERT CAMUS, MARCEL PROUST, JEAN-PAUL SARTRE and JEAN GENET. This serves to create a new kind of intertextuality between word and sound.
 
Following on from their EP ‘L’Assassin’ (2010) ROME assiduously develop their sound further on the minimalistic, simple singer-songwriter album ‘Nos Chants Perdus’, slowly leaving the apocalyptic realms behind them. Catchy melodies, which breathe the timeless atmosphere of the metropolis on the Seine, impress themselves on the memory. The sonorous voice bears the weltschmerz as well as the yearning for freedom and peace. Apart from the French song titles the lyrics are primarily performed in English, while the music is constructed primarily with acoustic instruments: piano, guitar, touches of strings, accordion. They have largely relinquished electronic elements, which marks ‘Nos Chants Perdus’ out as a further stride in the work of the band.
 
‘Nos Chants Perdus‘ by ROME is an exceptional and valuable example of the art of singer-songwriting, the likes of which haven’t been heard in this concentration and with such gravity for a long time.

 
ATTENTION: The album is published as a strictly limited special first edition.
 
• CD in digibook format
• Hardcover-book bound in linen with special black hotfoil debossing
• 40-pages extra-booklet, precious semi matte art print on selected high-quality paper and with elaborate "Singer" thread stitching

ASP: for years this name has stood for the most successful German gothic rock band and, irrespective of genre, for a concert recommendation par excellence. In 2008, the likeable band from Frankfurt went consistently further down their chosen creative path and released their masterpiece ‘Zaubererbruder – Der Krabat-Liederzyklus’ (very modestly billed as a ‘between-album’), yet another grand double album which was received enthusiastically by critics and fans alike.
