[ 26.07.2005 ] - «Hau Ruck» - new KMFDM album

«Hau Ruck»
«Hau Ruck»

Our ultra-heavy-beat favorites KMFDM presenting their brand new album «Hau Ruck» - set to release September 13th, 2005 via Metropolis. Translated from German as «Heave-Ho», album deliver an lesson in musical exhibitionism getting to work with ultra-heavy guitars, dance inducing synths and hard, aggressive beats. Further enhanced by distinct vocals (Lucia unleashes a spectrum of styles while Sascha K spews forth his own trademark bad-ass attitude) «Hau Ruck» prooves to be both lyrically thought provoking, yet humorously ironic, as KMFDM skewer the world and themselves with each stab.

Throwing out all misconceptions of the band and the genres they are associated with «Hau Ruck» is posibly the most powerful and innovative album that KMFDM have ever created. KMFDM produced and mixed «Hau Ruck» themselves and were even involved in the mastering process guaranteeing a sonic redefining of their signature sound. From the spoken introduction of the album to the closing track «Auf Wiederseh'n» (sung in German), KMFDM show exactly how it is done...


[01] Free Your Hate
[02] Hau Ruck
[03] You're No Good
[04] New American Century
[05] Real Thing
[06] Every Day's A Good Day
[07] Mini Mini Mini
[08] Professional Killer
[09] Feed Our Fame
[10] Ready To Blow
[11] Auf Wiederseh'n

[ 18.07.2005 ] - Funker Vogt with their «Navigator»


On September 5th, 2005 electro band Funker Vogt return with brand new album «Navigator» - via Synthetic Symphony. Taking its cue from lead single «Fallen Hero», this new album sees them fixing their crosshairs firmly on the dancefloor with a mixture of political insight fused with their bombastic, pumping electro - with tracks such as «Friendly Fire», «Rejects» and «Stronghold» delivering that patented euphoric Funker Vogt sound - an avalanche of direct, melodic electro anthems, rousing choruses and pummeling synthetic basslines. Elsewhere more personal and direct songs such as «The End», «House Of Sorrows», «No Tomorrow» and «For You» show a diverse and welcome edge to Funker Vogt - always melodic, but with slightly more complex arrangements (even utilising intensified guitar on tracks «Forward!», «Starfighters» and «No Tomorrow») and positive sound elements attatched to their driving structures.

Limited Edition version comes as special metal tin CD packaging with 3 bonus tracks.


[01] Killing Ground
[02] Fallen Hero
[03] No Tomorrow
[04] Friendly Fire
[05] Navigator
[06] House of Sorrows

[ 18.07.2005 ] - APB is returning!

«In This Together»
«In This Together»

On August 16th, 2005, after a three-year break, the Norwegian electro-pioneers Apoptygma Berzerk will release their brand new single, «In This Together» - via Gun Supersonic label. Band leader Stephan Groth used the creative break to do some stylistic fine tuning: in comparison to their last release, «Harmonizer» (2002), whose dancefloor grooves and atmospheric dark wave sounds rocketed it to the top of the European club charts, «In This Together» has a rockier character.

The return of guitarist Anders Odden, who was previously in the line-up until 1999, has clearly affected the sound: the triumvirate of sounds, integrating expansive synth soundscapes, cool guitar riffs and the unmistakable voice of Stephan Groth, opens a new chapter in the career of Apoptygma Berzerk transporting the band from EBM to industrial, trance and dancefloor and continuing on to electro rock.


[01] In This Together (Single Version)
[02] Faceless Fear
[03] Until The End Of The World (Acoustic)
[04] In This Together (Flipside Club Mix)
