Combichrist auch 2012 auf dem Blackfield Festival!!


Nachdem es 2011 während des Auftritts von Combichrist zu unerwarteteten Problemen kam und das Konzert abgebrochen wurde, hat sich nun nach einigen Vermutungen bestätigt, das Combichrist Ihren Gig auf dem Blackfield Festival 2012 NACHHOLEN werden!!

Wir freuen uns darauf Andy und die Band nochmal sehen zu dürfen, nachdem beim diesjährigem Konzert der Band nach ca 3 Liedern das Equipment den Geist aufgegeben hatte und noch ein paar Songs unplugged gespielt wurden. Leider wurde anschliessend das Handtuch geworfen und mit dem Versprechen wieder zu kommen die Bühne verlassen!!

Ich sag mal so... WIR sehen uns:

Deathwatch Asia News: The ultimate collector's edition of REAXION GUERRILLA's bestselling "I Hate You" - in 6-panel digipak, with 15-track CD2!

The ultimate collector's edition of REAXION GUERRILLA's bestselling "I Hate You" - in 6-panel digipak, with 15-track CD2!

This November 18th will be exactly one year to the day that DWA unleashed the hate-fuelled debut from South American harsh-EBM sensation REAXION GUERRILLA.

This year we commemorate the anniversary of that landmark debut by releasing (in association with new American partner Industry8) the ultimate collector’s edition of “I Hate You” - in 6-panel digipak format, complete with all-new cover art and a 15-track bonus disc of rarities and all-new remixes!

Since forming in 2007, REAXION GUERRILLA has played alongside acts such as AMDUSCIA,FGFC820HOCICONACHTMAHRC-LEKKTOR and PSYCLON NINE across Mexico, the U.S. and their homeland Peru.

“I Hate You” followed a string of appearances on well-known scene compilations, and announcedREAXION GUERRILLA’s appearance internationally – licensed for Europe to Infacted Recordings.

 

Comprising of 72 minutes of hard dancebeats and harsh sounds, “I Hate You” includes standout tracks like “Psycho Destruxion” (featuring guest vocals from Johan van Roy of SUICIDE COMMANDO) and the massively-popular download-only single “Kruzi-Fuck Me” - plus all-new recordings of established live favorites like “Mueranse Todos”, ensuring instant attention from fans of South American harsh-EBM and club DJs around the world.

 

“I Hate You” also features a massive bonus section of remixes from established stars of the harsh-EBM scene like ALIEN VAMPIRESEDEN SYNTHETIC CORPS and KRISTOF BATHORY of the legendaryDAWN OF ASHES: plus rising talent like FREAKANGEL (DWA/Alfa Matrix, DWA114: The Faults Of Humanity).

 

A classic release of the genre, difficult to better. But the ultimate collector’s edition is here…

 

Originally released in jewelcase, “I Hate You – North American 2CD Limited Edition” is packaged in 6-panel digipak with new cover art from original artist Vlad McNeally of Kallisti:Design – and comes with the 8-panel booklet of the original DWA version.

 

Bonus disc “I Hate You Too” – mastered like the original album by renowned engineer Jan L at X-Fusion Music Production in Germany – rounds up a further 15 tracks, and is structured as a “mirror” of the original album, with new versions of each track presented in the same original order:

- 3 alternate mixes by REAXION GUERRILLA of the tracks “I Hate You” (x2) and “Psycho Destruxion” – each previously available only on compilations

- 8 new remixes from C-LEKKTORACYLUMINCUBITECYGNOSICCEDIGESTTERRORKODE,ZUBLA:GRIMAL and STAHLNEBEL & BLACK SELKET

- remastered version of the deleted “Sacrifice (X-FUSION Remix)” – previously available only on a compilation

- “Infexion (DAWN OF ASHES Remix)”, “Kruzi-Fuck Me (DETROIT DIESEL Remix)” and “(MORDACIOUS Remix)” previously available in digital format only

“I Hate You – North American 2CD Limited Edition” is strictly limited to 200 copies only, and is released November 18 – exactly one year to the day of the original release!

PATENBRIGADE: WOLFF A RETROSPECTIVE BEST OF 2008 – 2012 VÖ: 11.11.2011

PATENBRIGADE: WOLFF

A RETROSPECTIVE BEST OF 2008 – 2012 VÖ: 11.11.2011

Nach „Demokratischer Sektor“ (2008) lädt die PATENBRIGADE: WOLFF nun mit ihrer bereits 2.

retrospektiven BEST OF zur wohl abgefahrensten TANZVERANSTALTUNG diesen Jahres in jeden noch so

kleinen Jugendklub der Republik und zum schweißtreibenden 80-minütigen Tanzflächendauerlauf OHNE

PAUSE – denn wie alle P:W-Releases seit 2001 gehen wieder ausnahmslos alle Tracks ineinander über.

Auf „Tanzveranstaltung“ finden sich alle P:W-Hits der letzten 4 Jahre, die Geschichte schrieben und jeder

kennt! Inkl. „Feind hört mit!“, „Stalinallee“, „Signal“ im P•A•L-Remix, „Der Brigadier trinkt Bier!“ und

natürlich die aktuelle Single „Schallplattenunterhalter“, die es sich wie schon die bisherigen 9 (!) P:W-Singles

wochenlang in den TOP 3 der Deutschen Alternative Charts sowie Electronic Web Charts gemütlich machte.

KEIN CYBER . KEIN GOTH . 101% PURE ELECTRO!


Erfreulicherweise sind PATENBRIGADE: WOLFF eine der wenigen Künstler, die sich keinem Trend anschließen

(müssen) – weder Futurepop, noch Cyberindustrial. Sie knicken weder Leuchtstäbchen, hauen sich keine

Familienpackung Make Up ins Gesicht, benötigen kein dünnes Kunstblut, um Aufsehen zu erregen und

können erstaunlicherweise auch ohne knallbunte Kontaktlinsen sehr gut sehen. Mit ihrem wohlweislich ganz

eigenen Sound setzen sie seit 2001 und bisher weit mehr als 16 Releases lieber selbst Trends. Und das P:W

eine Ausnahmeformation sind, davon kann sich jeder mit dieser neuen Restrospective selbst überzeugen.

Suicide Commando - Exclusive Interview @ Electrowelt.com

JOHAN VAN ROY / SUICIDE COMMANDO : EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW @ ELECTROWELT.COM

(Koln - Amphi Festival 2011 - By MALICE F.)


One of most important leading acts in the EBM scene celebrates its 25 years in the scene; Johan Van Roy talks about today’s scene, his 25 year career with Suicide Commando and his future plans too. He also looks forward to perform live in Athens this November. Here is what he shared with us, during our time together in Cologne.

1. EW. Johan, it’s wonderful to see you again and have the chance to catch up again! It’s been a while, almost a year, since we last interviewed you for electrowelt.com. What’s new? What have you been up to?

S.C. Well, not so much really… pretty much, but not really in the music business. Being a dad now…


EW. Congratulations Johan for once more!

S.C. …it’s taking a lot of time, so it’s not so easy to combine things at the moment, combine music with my work and my family life, but I think I still manage to do a few things, like now the Suicide sessions, which was released yesterday. It’s actually re- releases of the first three albums which are re-mastered now with some bonus material… that’s something new; apart from that I did quite a few guest appearances for other bands, usually just guest vocals and a few remixes; slowly, I am starting to work on new material for our next album.

2. EW.  Your last album “Implements of Hell” went really well and the reactions from both fans and press were really positive. Are you happy with its course, was it what you expected?

S.C. Yeah! I am really happy how it turned out, maybe not sales wise, because we all know that cd sales are dropping minute by minute actually, so at the moment the time has come when you have to consider releasing albums more as promotion, than making money from it or whatever; but apart from that, I was very happy with the reactions from both the press and the crowd, of course there are always people that don’t like it or whatever, but you can’t please everyone!

3. EW. Johan, you seem and of course you are such a nice and calm guy! Nevertheless, you have researched and been inspired by serial killers, in both “Bind Torture & Kill” and “Implements of Hell” albums. Could you please elaborate about the difference between these two particular albums? And also what fascinates you the most in serial killers’ stories?

S.C. For me, there was actually quite a difference, maybe not big, but there was a difference in both albums: BTK was indeed a concept album about serial killers, but Implements of Hell was really more than just  about serial killers, because apart from the album title and maybe two or three songs, all the rest had actually nothing to do with serial killers. So, for me there was difference enough. Well about the second part of your question, I don’t know!

EW.  How did it start?

S.C. By coincidence actually! A few years ago, when I started to write the BTK album, I watched some movies and documentaries about serial killers; I think that everybody is kind of fascinated by these people, so I started to read more about them, watch more videos and movies. But it didn’t really stop after BTK! There are so many other serial killers around us! When you start, it really is endless; you bump from one crazy serial killer to the other! Well, I am not a serial killer..! But I think there is a connection, cause in real life serial killers are often shy and invisible people, so in that way I kind of feel connected with them!


4. EW. Have you ever written a dramatic love song? I think “Love breeds suicide” was kind like that. Would you like to create more songs like that?

S.C. I think “Death cures all pain” was also about suicide and love; there have been a few more songs about this topic…

5. EW. Is there a topic that inspires you to make more songs in the future? Are you thinking about it for you new work?

S.C. I never really make a plan, it just happens from whatever mood I am in… words come out or not! I am not really a guy that has something in mind and try to write music or songs about it. For me it’s all spontaneous, I just get behind my equipment and if something is coming it’s great or if it’s not, bad luck!

6. EW. It’s been over 25 years! What a long and intense trip it has been! How do you feel about it and is there anything that you still crave to do or achieve in your career, but haven’t managed to do yet?

S.C. Actually I am quite happy with what I have achieved in these 25 years. When I first started making music, I never imagined that I would be sitting right here now making this interview! Or play before 2.000 people! I never had the intention to become big or whatever. I am really happy with the things I got all these years and in time I got to realize all my dreams that I could make them happen in this scene. I am a really happy guy!


7. EW. I gather that starting off in the scene wasn’t a piece of cake back then. You have succeeded though to overcome obstacles and be one of the leading acts in the scene with one of the longer and steadiest careers in the EBM scene; many newcomer bands try to follow your steps too. Was there a time that things were so difficult and strenuous for you that you considered to stop with all this?

S.C. Not really. Of course, sometimes I think we all have these moments; well at least I had, these moments when I wanted to throw my idea out of the window, if things were not working the way I wanted them to! But this usually only lasts -and lasted- a few seconds. I just can’t imagine my life without my music, I feel dead without it.

8. EW. I personally enjoy much more the older and darker Suicide Commando tracks than the club hits, e.g. the album “Critical Stage” in 1994 and “Murder song”. Do you still listen to your older songs, maybe even consider releasing remixes of them or do you feel that you have moved on since then?

S.C. Well yeah, I think my music has changed for sure. With these new re-releases, I’ve been listening to the old stuff again, I re-mastered everything. We re-released the entire first 3 albums and each time we did a bonus disc with material that was never released before, rare tracks or whatever. Listening to this old material again, also made me realize that I really love this old stuff myself as well! It’s not because I am doing more club hits these days that I don’t love the old stuff anymore. So maybe my next work will be more in this direction again, I don’t know.


9. EW. Watching your career, it’s pretty clear and obvious that you are an artist who likes to help new bands or other projects in the scene. Did you receive the same kind of help by more established bands when you started?

S.C. Well, it’s a bit different now. There are so many, many bands these days, but when I started making music there was 10-12 bands doing this kind of music! So, it was totally different from today, we were more of family back then, we were so few! Everybody knew each other, now it’s impossible to know everyone; especially, in Belgium there was Front, Klinik, New Judgment. There was a family feeling… today it’s so different, they write to me “please do me a remix or a guest thing for me”, but I don’t even know them personally.

10. EW. Could you please tell us about World Wide Electronics with Out of Line? What are your criteria for the compilations you release? Are there any plans for a new one?

S.C. The plan is to do some more compilations, maybe one a year; the intention is to have music that I like, that I consider is good enough and has potential to release on cd, to give new bands a chance to release their stuff on cd. I am heading more in one direction (industrial bands), because of my own musical roots.

11. EW. More and more artists and bands stop releasing cds and free downloading is the case nowadays. Will you continue releasing cds or do you believe that like vinyls, cds will die out too?

S.C. It’s a difficult question. I think that cds are kind of going the same way as vinyls did. I think only the true diehard fans will still buy them. I think in the future more and more things will be released on digital platform, it’s the direction you notice right now, because many bands are not releasing singles anymore; they just release it digitally.


12. EW. We are very excited that you will perform live in Athens this November! How do you feel about it, what will we see?

S.C. We have played 2 times in Greece, once in Athens and in Thessaloniki. It was great playing there, great crowd, I am looking forward to come back.

13. EW. Any final interview words or message to your fans?

JVR. Being 25 years in the scene, I think it’s a good moment to see all my Greek fans. I hope to welcome as many of them as possible at the show in Athens in November! I am looking forward to it; I hope it will be fun!

EW. Thank you very much Johan! See you again in Athens soon!
