Available from tomorrow: Front Line Assembly - Improvised.Electronic.Device

Front Line Assembly

Always expanding and reconstructing electronic and industrial music to its breaking point while keeping rhythm and melody intact, Front Line Assembly are preparing to unleash the latest chapter in their storied history with the release of "Improvised Electronic Device" tomorrow on Dependent. "I.E.D. is definitely furthering the direction of the band and sound, creatively and artistically."

The press already got their copies of the album and pronounce:

"Act of the Month -- what other bands aspire to."
- Orkus Musikmagazin

"The ideal mix of industrial metal and sophisticated electronics... a rocking, grooving banger of an album! ... lovingly detailed arrangements and superheavy production hits the nail on the head."
- Zillo Musikmagazin

"...the first album since 'Hard Wired' which is convincing from beginning to end and, moreover, is stylistically related to these glorious days. What more can you say? Great, perhaps. No: really great! "
- Gothic Magazine

"...the triumphant rebirth of classic Front Line Assembly: monstrous and almost epic refrains with arching melodies that lend a special touch to even the hardest numbers."
- Klangwelt

"Improvised Electronic Device is an amazing body of work that only true masters of Industrial music could have composed."
-Crazy Brutal

"Seldom have rhythm guitars and typical EBM basslines been heard in such perfect harmony."
- Orkus Musikmagazin

"The wait has been worth it: Front Line Assembly delivers a powerful banger of an LP."
- Nachtaktiv

"'Improvised Electronic Device' showcases a rejuvenated FLA: the EBM pioneers sound more rested and innovative than they have in years. Recommended!"
- Elektrauma

Septic IX

Septic IX

The work on "Septic IX" has just begun. Dependent have been releasing this annual ground-breaking comp for the last ten years, personally compiled by label founder Stefan Herwig, the series focuses on creating new hits rather than compiling existing ones.

Comprised of equal parts unsigned bands and established acts, the Septic tracklist represents rare and unreleased material judged to have maximum clubhit potential : the Septic series has helped bands like VNV Nation, The Retrosic, SITD, Seabound, Pride And Fall and many more achieve their iconic status in alternative clubs worldwide. Stylistically, the Septic series runs the gamut of the EBM / Electro scene and beyond, with bands like Anthony Rother, The Delta, Juno Reactor and Mind.In.A.Box fitting right into the sampler's concept.

So if you have THE track or remix in your machine, which you think it should not be missed on the next Septic installment, bring it on and quickly send it to us.

Available now: Decoded Feedback - "Aftermath"

Decoded Feedback

Decoded
            Feedback

We stand in awe of their unmistakable combination of pulsating basslines and angelic synth-melodies (“Silent Killer“, “Proteus Syndrome“) and nostalgic glimpses to the old school Dark Wave of the Eighties (“Dark Reflections“, “Shelter Me”), as well as Electropop (“Affliction”). Full-bodied and varied, “Aftermath” stands between feelings and moods with unexpected sonic landscapes. Never before could it be said that Decoded Feedback has been this melodically oriented as we can now in 2010. Even in this project's 17th year of existence, there is no lack of innovation or variation.

“Aftermath” strikes with a brutal force within the electronic scene ...The album is destined for the darker clubs ... Marco and Yone combines harmonic sequences and heavy basslines very good to create that pounding and very energetic sound. “Aftermath” is rough, offers great production and proves that the band still is to count with."
- blackvector.se

"The songs are well-danceable and melodically oriented. Not only the album is marked by the typical pushing industrial and electro sounds with its distinctive bass lines and Synth melodies but also you find reminiscences of good old 80s electro wave ... pushing harmonic synthesizer sounds, completed with pleasing vocals. Recommended!"

Decoded Feedback – Make up your own mind!

Decoded Feedback

Decoded Feedback

 Extended sneak preview snippets of all tracks of the upcoming, mid-May Decoded Feedback album “Aftermath” are available now. Here you can make up your own mind on the long anticipated, new material by DF.

Half a decade after the release of “Combustion”, DF now presents its 8th full-length album “Aftermath”. It shows impressively that the Canadian duo, now in its 17th year, hasn't lost its variety and innovation. They still go to show how intensive, rich and exciting Electronic-, Dark Industrial can be in the year 2010.
