Zu den 11 bestätigten Bands gesellen sich nun drei weitere Kracher, die es in sich haben: COVENANTAGONOIZE[X]-RX Mit ihrem im November erscheinenden Album „The Blinding Dark“ läuten COVENANT drei Jahre nach „Leaving Babylon“ das nächste Kapitel ein.

E-tropolis fans, fasten your seatbelts! On 5. March 2016 the Turbinenhalle Oberhausen is in for one hell of a ride, as our electro-flagship approaches the orbit with three additional crowd pullers. Ready to ignite the engine?! These are the three new artists, appearing on the E-tropolis Festival line-up 2016:


It´s true! AND ONE split minds! Some love them - all others idolize them! Dance-o-matic bodypop madness of electromagnetic attraction. Refined thrice in what most others merely achieve once at a time. Confusing? Nevermind! Steve Naghavi & co. are and remain the first address for the ultimate festival ride, our relentlessly punishing bomber of joy – a tailor-made fitting headliner. Stones are stones while the Turbinenhalle will ignite, as easy as 1...2...3!

Further we go with the lived german-american friendship of Ølåf Å. Reimers (Tyske Ludder) and Dan von Hoyel (Titans). These are the protagonists of the transatlantic alliance HARMJOY, whose preemptive strike „Silver Lining Of A Mushroom Cloud“ stirred up a respectable amount of dust with premium-class electropop since its release in 2014. Hence, time was right to invite the duo to Oberhausen for a better-harder-louder tryst at E-tropolis Festival 2016.

Last but definitely not least we welcome ORANGE SECTOR. The Hanover based EBM veterans don´t take prisoners. Straightforward, grounded good-old ElectroBody is what the men from Lower Saxony offer for almost 25 years now. To be honest, a tight EBM-attack couldn´t do any wrong, as Lars Timm Felker and Martin Bodewell lace up their boots for a kick-ass show in Oberhausen. So let´s get to work no hold barred, for the Night Terrors are waiting for you!

Sisters Of Mercy - Live in Athens 2015 - POSTPONED

Unfortunately the Sisters have had to postpone the final three dates of the October 2015 tour, due an outbreak of illness in the band and crew. This afternoon, Andrew Eldritch was seen by a local doctor who diagnosed viral laryngitis, which explains the illness flying around the bus, and signed off from singing for (at least) five days. Five of the band and crew have been suffering with similar symptoms for a week. Unfortunately/fortunately they don't have to sing for 90 minutes a night. Köln Palladium has been rescheduled to Dec 8th 2015 and Berlin Columbiahalle will be on Dec 9th 2015. Athens will be next year. Original tickets remain valid; and of course refunds are available from point of purchase for those who can't make the new dates.

Huge apologies to all, especially those who have travelled from far afield.



Δυστυχώς, βρισκόμαστε στη δυσάρεστη θέση να ανακοινώσουμε πως η συναυλία των Sisters Of Mercy, η οποία ήταν προγραμματισμένο να πραγματοποιηθεί το Σάββατο 24/10 στο χώρο της Ιεράς Οδού, αναβάλλεται.

Σύμφωνα με ανακοίνωση του συγκροτήματος στο επίσημο website (, τα μέλη της μπάντας αλλά και αρκετοί από το crew που τη συνοδεύει, προσβλήθηκαν από σοβαρή ίωση ενώ ταξίδευαν με το tour bus από το Βέλγιο προς τη Γερμανία και συγκεκριμένα την Κολωνία, όπου θα πραγματοποιούσαν την επόμενη στάση της περιοδείας που ξεκίνησαν μέσα στον Οκτώβριο.

Σήμερα το απόγευμα, ο Andrew Eldritch εξετάστηκε από τοπικό γιατρό που διέγνωσε πως έχει προσβληθεί από ιογενή λαρυγγίτιδα και του απαγόρευσε να τραγουδήσει για τουλάχιστον 5 ημέρες. Συνέπεια αυτού, η αναβολή των τριών τελευταίων συναυλιών της περιοδείας: στην Κολωνία (όπου, όπως και στην Αθήνα, το venue είχε αλλάξει πριν λίγες ημέρες λόγω μεγάλης ζήτησης), το Βερολίνο και την Αθήνα. Για τις δύο γερμανικές πόλεις υπάρχουν ήδη νέες ημερομηνίες. Πολύ σύντομα, θα έχουμε κι εμείς τη δική μας.

Μέχρι τότε, η προπώληση διακόπτεται προσωρινά, ενώ τα ήδη προπωληθέντα εισιτήρια ισχύουν κανονικά. Σε λίγες ημέρες θα είμαστε σε θέση να ανακοινώσουμε τη νέα ημερομηνία τέλεσης της συναυλίας.

Εκ μέρους του συγκροτήματος, αλλά και της διοργανώτριας εταιρείας, μία μεγαλη συγγνώμη προς όλες και όλους.


ΑSisters Of Mercy - Live in Athens / Change of Venue due to sold out of presale tickets + Opening Act : Mani Deum (GR).


Δέκα ημέρες πριν την προγραμματισμένη ημερομηνία τέλεσής της, τα εισιτήρια για τη συναυλία των Sisters Of Mercy, το Σάββατο 24 Οκτωβρίου, εξαντλήθηκαν! Η ζήτηση παραμένει τεράστια, γεγονός που μας οδηγεί στην αλλαγή του χώρου διεξαγωγής, από το Fuzz Live Music Club στην Ιερά Οδό (Ιερά Οδός 18-20, Γκάζι / 400 μέτρα από τον Σταθμό Μετρό "Κεραμεικός").

Όσα εισιτήρια έχουν ήδη προπωληθεί φυσικά ισχύουν κανονικά ενώ η διάθεσή τους συνεχίζεται, προς 27 ευρώ, τηλεφωνικά στο 11 876, στα καταστήματα Public, Seven Spots, Παπασωτηρίου, Ιανός, Reload, Media Markt και το

Οι ενδιαφερόμενοι καλό θα ήταν να εξασφαλίσουν άμεσα την είσοδό τους.

Τη συναυλία θα ανοίξουν οι Mani Deum, ένα από τα πλέον ανερχόμενα groups της εγχώριας σκηνής!

Οι Sisters Of Mercy, ένα από τα σπουδαιότερα συγκροτήματα που ανέδειξε η post punk σκηνή και αδιαμφισβήτητοι αρχιερείς του gothic rock, επιστρέφουν στην Αθήνα για μία μοναδική συναυλία , το Σάββατο 24 Οκτωβρίου στον χώρο Ιερά Οδός! Τη συναυλία θα ανοίξουν οι Mani Deum, ένα από τα πλέον ανερχόμενα groups της εγχώριας σκηνής.

Με την εμβληματική παρουσία του Andrew Eldritch σε πρώτο πλάνο και την επιβλητική βαρειά φωνή του – η οποία έχει χαρακτηρίσει ένα ολόκληρο μουσικό ρεύμα – πάνω από το ρυθμικό υπόβαθρο του Doktor Avalanche, οι Sisters Of Mercy θα μας θυμίσουν επί σκηνής πολλά από τα τραγούδια που τους έκαναν το θρυλικότερο και πιο επιτυχημένο group του είδους.

Η προπώληση θα συνεχιστεί στα 27 ευρώ, ενώ στο ταμείο η τιμή θα είναι 30 ευρώ.

Πραγματικά, δεν χρειάζονται πολλά λόγια για τους Sisters Of Mercy. Παρότι υπάρχουν από το 1977, όταν και σχηματίστηκαν στο Leeds της Αγγλίας, έχουν κυκλοφορήσει μόλις τρία ολοκληρωμένα studio albums (“First And Last And Always” / 1985, “Floodland” / 1987, “Vision Thing” / 1990), μερικές συλλογές και αρκετά singles και EPs. Από το 1993 και μετά, μετά από πολλαπλές αλλαγές στη σύνθεση της μπάντας – με μοναδικά σταθερά σημεία αναφοράς, όλα αυτά τα χρόνια, τον Andrew Eldrich και το drum machine της μπάντας που φέρει το όνομα Doktor Avalanche – οι έντονες διαφορές που είχαν με τη δισκογραφική εταιρεία τους οδήγησαν σε μία μακρόχρονη αποχή από τη δισκογραφία.

Παρόλα αυτά, η σχετικά περιορισμένη δισκογραφική τους δράση και παρουσία δεν τους εμπόδισε να γίνουν ένα από τα θρυλικότερα ονόματα της gothic rock σκηνής και της dark κουλτούρας, εν γένει. Οι ίδιοι ανέκαθεν θεωρούσαν τους εαυτούς τους ως ένα, πρωτίστως, rock’n’roll συγκρότημα με βασικές επιρροές από τον Leonard Cohen (από κομμάτι του οποίου πήραν και το όνομά τους), τους Stooges, τους Suicide, τους Velvet Underground, τους Hawkwind, τους Birthday Party και τους Fall. To σίγουρο είναι πως, είτε μιλάμε για singles / EPs είτε για album tracks, η δισκογραφία τους είναι γεμάτη τραγούδια που σημάδεψαν την εποχή της άνθισης της ανεξάρτητης σκηνής και που εξακολουθούν να αποτελούν τα απόλυτα highlights του συγκεκριμένου μουσικού ρεύματος.

Alice, Temple Of Love, This Corrosion, More, Lucretia My Reflection, Dominion / Mother Russia, Body And Soul, Anaconda, Walk Away, Under The Gun, Body Electric, The Damage Done, Doctor Jeep, Floorshow, Marian, Black Planet, No Time To Cry, First And Last And Always, A Rock And A Hard Place, Nine While Nine, Amphetamine Logic, 1959, Flood II, Vision Thing, I Was Wrong, Ribbons, Detonation Boulevard, When You Don’t See Me, είναι οι τίτλοι κομματιών που οι περισσότεροι γνωρίζουμε και υπό τους σκοτεινούς ρυθμούς των οποίων πιθανότατα έχουμε περάσει ατελείωτες νύχτες στα διάφορα bar και club της πόλης. Πολλά από αυτά θα τα ακούσουμε ζωντανά στο live της 24ης Οκτωβρίου, μαζί με ορισμένα νέα κομμάτια που η μπάντα υπόσχεται να συμπεριλάβει στο set list. Να αναμένουμε, ίσως, ένα καινούργιο album στο άμεσο μέλλον; Περισσότερα από κοντά...

Exclusive Interview with RED ZEBRA



1 EW: First of all, before we start, we would like to say how excited we are to have this interview with you! We are so much looking forward to your live performance at 7 Sins on 20th November! How do you feel about coming to Athens and Greece?

 RZ: We're very excited too, cause we never played in Greece before ! We're really looking forward to it. In fact we're even gonna play a new song, called "When Victor Bouts walks in", that we never played before. And be sure, the band is in top condition. 




2 EW: We would like to know a little bit more about the band and how you started out back in 1978... what was your inspiration for the band's name, how did you come up with "Red Zebra"?

RZ: When we started we named ourselves The Bungalows. A silly name. So Peter came up with a another name. Red Zebra sounded more serious, more mysterious, more dangerous. At that time we didn't know that a red zebra is a weird kind of fish. The first time we used the name is when we played support for The Cure in the spring of 1980.




3 EW: You come from Bruges (beautiful city by the way!), how were things for newcomers in the new wave, post punk scene back then? Did you have any supporters, was it easy to make a decent start?

RZ: Bruges might be beautiful but it's a very conservative city. So it's was very strange to have suddenly a big punk scene in Bruges. If you make music and you come from Bruges, it's not easy to be taken seriously. It's much more easy for bands coming from Ghent or Antwerp.





4. EW: what were your favorite bands or artists that influenced you?

RZ: Many bands but we like to name The Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers and especially The Sound. That's why we play "Winning" of The Sound. It has almost become a song of our own.




5. EW: Are there any other bands or projects from Belgium or perhaps other countries that you like? I think that Siglo XX come from Belgium too...

RZ: In the past we did play with bands such as Siglo XX, The Names or De Brassers. We even used to help each other to get gigs, that was the right punk spirit. Bands nowadays are much more selfish.




6. EW: Things are pretty different today for new bands and projects... internet is one of the ruling factors for a band's success, lyrics or even quality music don't count so much... how do you feel about this situation?

RZ: It's very important to be present on the internet and to establish a relationship with your fans from all over the world by the internet. But the most important thing for us is to be albe to give as much gigs, especially in places we never played before, like Athens...




7. EW: If you were offered the chance, would you prefer to start out again today, having all the promotion that internet has to offer? Do you regret any of your past decisions concerning the band's history?

RZ: Mmm, that's hard to say, there are recordings we regret, that could have been better, but hey, that's life. It's to better to look ahead, than to look behind.





8. EW: Let's go to your huge even today hit "I can't live in a living room". Could you please describe us the circumstances under which you created this song? What was your inspiration?

RZ: Geert came up with this weird riff and Peter came up with this silly phrase after he had seen and interview with the English actor Michael Caine. Caine talked about strange English words and mentioned the word 'living room'. The same night Peter had this idea for a new lyric. And what happened then, is history. Thanks to Michael Caine. Maybe we should do a song about him, just like Madness did.




9. EW: I was thinking that it must be a little bit annoying that people identify you only with this particular hit! We could say that it opened doors for you though.

RZ: "Living room" is a curse and of course also a blessing. Thanks to this song thousand of people all over the world know Red Zebra. But, let's be honest, we have better songs than that. Everyone in the band has other favorites, but we're happy to play each others favorites. But "Living room" stays a special song.




10.EW: Your albums "Bastogne" and "Maquis" are new wave 80s classics. Were they successful back then?

RZ: "Maquis" was not that successful. You hear a band trying to explore new musical grounds. But "Bastogne" was very successful and sold many copies, not only in Belgium but also in England and France. We went out to Paris to drop some in the alternative record stores, only to find out that they imported the record already from England. "Bastogne" is really the best album we've recorded. The 5 songs on it are included in the set we will play in Athens.




11.EW:  After "Maquis" there weren't any new releases, you laid back quiet after this. Were there any particular reasons?

RZ: We ran out of inspiration. We had the feeling that we couldn't reach the level of "Bastogne" anymore. And recording started to be very expensive at that time. Those reasons made it for us rather difficult to record new songs at that time.





12. It's also strange why weren't you signed by any major label back then? What are your thoughts about it?

RZ: I prefer the freedom above the money of a big record company that tells u what to do. So no regrets. Next question, please.




13.EW: Do you have any plans for a new release in the near future?

RZ: We do have plans as we're working on new songs for the moment. Some of them are already in the set, "Eyes closed for beauty" and "Hey, Johnny Teardrop". The first one is a rather classical Red Zebra song, the second one refers to New Order. The plan is to record a single that will be released on the 16th of April next year, on the Independant Record Store Day. Mauro Pawlowski, who's now a member of dEUS, will be producer. He's a big fan of Red Zebra and is delighted to work with us. So we're very excited about this. If all works out well, we would like to record more new songs and release them on a new EP. So plans enough !




14.EW: Will you perform at any festivals this year or in 2011? Are you touring in other countries in Europe or elsewhere?

RZ: Glad that you ask. We just got a new manager. In the past he worked for bands as The Bollock Brothers, Anna Clark and Neon Judgement. He has very good contacts outside Belgium. So it looks like we're gonna travel a lot more next year.





15.EW: Could I please ask what's the story with the bananas at your gigs?

RZ: Peter started to eat bananas while singing "Man comes from ape" and it became a kind of performance. One gig he ate so much bananas and other fruit at the same time on stage that he got high on vitamins for a few minutes. It's healthier than cocaine and it cost less.




EW: I would like to thank you on behalf of for this interview! Could you please give a special message to your Greek fans who will attend the Red Zebra gig next week?

RZ: Just be there and we will give you a concert to remember for a long time.



Red Zebra will perform LIVE in Athens Greece at Seven Sins Club on Saturday 20/11/2010.

Diary Of Dreams enter the Blackfield Festival 2014 Line Up.

Dear Blackfield community,

we do it quick and easy: Due to health reasons, 
SUICIDE COMMANDO cannot participate @ Blackfield Festival 2014. They will be replaced by DIARY OF DREAMS.

Johan (SUICIDE COMMANDO) adresses the following words to all of you:

Dear fans & blackfielders,

It is with deep regret that I have to cancel our show at this years Blackfield Festival. As most of you probably know by now I recently had an accident on stage while being on tour in the USA. Due to the ongoing injury of my knee it unfortunately will be impossible for me to do our planned show at Blackfield.
Surgery of my knee is planned few days before the Blackfield Festival and recovery probably will take several more weeks up to months.
I promise to be back soon: harder, tougher and more evil then ever before !
Thanks for your understanding !
Enjoy the festival !

Suicide Commando.
