The new Rammstein album will not be called «Reise, Reise Vol.2» but «Rosenrot» - this was decided by the band in a meeting recently. «Benzin», the so far only song from the new album which was introduced to the public due to the Wuhlheide concerts in June 2005, will be the first single of the album too. Preparations for the release are getting into top gear. The video for «Benzin» has just been shot and is in its postproduction now; there is work done for several remixes, as well as artwork for the cover of the single and the album. You will find more here shortly.

[ 15.08.2005 ] - «You And Me Against The World» - new APB album

«You And Me Against The World»
«You And Me Against The World»

Finally returning after a too long break of over three years, Norwegian electronic band Apoptygma Berzerk are back on September 12th, 2005 with their brand new album «You And Me Against The World» (via Gun Supersonic). Their first release of new material since 2002's «Harmonizer» album propelled them to the forefront of the emerging future-pop scene - APB transcend genre bounderies with their infectious blend of catchy trance infused electronics, rousing choruses and compelling club arrangements. Constantly updating their sound, new album «You And Me Against The World» sees APB mastermind Stephan Groth returning with a new, refreshed vigour and an invigorated sonic palette, welcoming former APB guitarist Anders Odden back into the fold to add a rockier, more bombastic edge to their overall sound. Still firmly electronic (as witnessed on first single «In This Together») «You And Me Against The World» is a seamless blend of huge synth arrangements and cool guitar riffs with Groths voice sounding better than ever - add to this neatly inserted elements of APB patented EBM, electro, trance and dancefloor manouvers for a welcome return from one of the giants of the scene.

Limited Edition of the album comes complete with the two bonus tracks «Shine On» and «Is Electronic Love To Blame».


[01] Tuning In Again (Intro)
[02] In This Together (Album Version)
[03] Love To Blame
[04] You Keep Me From Breaking Apart

[13] Is Electronic Love To Blame (Bonus Track)
