Full details about forthcoming new Fractured album!

Tales of the legendary island of Atlantis, said to have sunk beneath the waves “in a single day and night of misfortune”, have been told for more than 2,400 years. No matter that it never existed, the fabled continent has been the subject of thousands of books over the centuries, a testament to the enduring power of the Atlantis myth.
Still, it is perhaps an unexpected theme to be taken up by a Canadian electro-industrial project. On the other hand, “Canadian electro” has always stood for complex and profound sounds identified with acts like Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Numb and Decoded Feedback, so it’s a small step to move from complex sounds to complex themes.
This thematic challenge is taken up by Fractured on the second full-length, “Beneath The Ashes”. Anyone expecting sterile or overly convoluted sounds is on the wrong track, as this time around Fractured have incorporated a range of organic elements such as acoustic guitars and orchestral arrangements to bring a new depth to their music. At times reminiscent of a soundtrack, this is a dense and compact album that never stays too long in one place, maintaining an air of tension throughout, just like an ancient continent foreshadowing its destruction. In other words, never a dull moment: club-ready electro tracks alternate with gentle ballads, always keeping the listener on her toes.
Extra large audio snippets of the album you will find here.
The album will be released on March 25th and can be pre-ordered here.

KMFDM "WTF?!" album cover stolen from record companies website!


That was a close one: directly following the announcement of its' April release date, a few computer-savvy fans "stole" the cover art of the forthcoming KMFDM album “WTF?!” from a server of their US-based label Metropolis Records, and within minutes had leaked it onto a number of forums. The cover displays an attractive woman with a burning stick of dynamite – positioned in her cleavage.

After the initial surprise, KMFDM-head Sascha “Käpt’n K” Konietzko realized that band and label had actually been rather lucky: “The album master was scheduled to be put on the same server just a few days later, it was fortunately still at the mastering studio in Los Angeles. Such an early leaking of this album would have been a complete catastrophe for us. Well, at least it goes well with the album title: WTF?!"

In the meantime KMFDM have also announced the remixer lineup of their forthcoming single “Krank” , to be released in Europe in the first half of March: among others, Sebastian Komor (Icon Of Coil, Komor Kommando) and Bill Rieflin (Revolting Cocks, Ministry) have rendered exciting mixes for "Krank". The single will also feature a rare B-side “Day Of Light”. Here you already can find audio snippets from the single and here you can pre-order your copy now.

Now available - Ghost & Writer - debut album "Shipwrecks"!

Now finally available, the long awaited debut album "Shipwrecks" by Jimmyjoe Snark III (then one half of The Weathermen, crafted the New Beat/EBM smash hit “Poison”) and Frank M. Spinath (vocalist for both Seabound and Edge of Dawn) as GHOST & WRITER.
Seldom has the combination of old and new been so creative and fruitful than on the first Ghost & Writer LP “Shipwrecks”. In keeping with the unconventionality of the entire project, each of the 8 album tracks is also featured in an alternative version, each re-worked by a different artist.
Snark and Spinath give conventional songwriting the cold shoulder and turn instead to brazenly modern structures as well as beloved yet nearly forgotten retro-elements, or as they put it: „Mean little stories blown up to cinematic proportions. Stranded and battered electronic memorials of better days. And yet, so fresh it almost hurts.“

To make your own decision what´s worth to buy next, here you can download the full track "Man On A Wire" for free.

And you also can listen to XL-snipptes of further album tracks here.



Dependent promise hot spring with two new compilation albums!

February 25th will see the release of two new Dependent compilations: first, a new instalment of the limited edition label compilation "Dependence 2011“, featuring brand new and unreleased material from Dependent artists like Front Line Assembly, Decoded Feedback, Informatik, System Syn, KMFDM, Edge Of Dawn, etc., and a second compilation "Dependent Club Anthems“ which, as the name suggests, will contain the biggest clubhits by Dependent bands such as Suicide Commando, Rotersand, Covenant, Seabound, Pride And Fall, etc.

While each track will be featured in its original club-ready form, the compilation will be mastered to 2011 standards for an additional punch. Short and sweet: 15 monster hits - remastered but original mixes.



Ghost & Writer – Free song from debut album already available!

It feels like an eternity since Jimmyjoe Snark III, at that time still using the moniker of The Weathermen, exploded onto the EBM and New Beat scene with the track “Poison“. Singer Frank Spinath, on the other hand, is known for his comparatively more recent projects Seabound and Edge of Dawn, both huge hits in among electro fans. Spinath managed to persuade Jimmyjoe to collaborate, and the result of their efforts will finally released as "Shipwrecks", the debut album of Ghost & Writer on January 28th.
Snark and Spinath give conventional songwriting the cold shoulder and turn instead to brazenly modern structures as well as beloved yet nearly forgotten retro-elements, or as they put it: „Mean little stories blown up to cinematic proportions. Stranded and battered electronic memorials of better days. And yet, so fresh it almost hurts.“
