mind.in.a.box - A very special track

mind.in.a.box just have created a very special track with their side-project THYX.
This was an experiment they did with mind.in.a.box and THYX fans via facebook and was called "Tape Evidence". Everyone could send sound material, noises, whatever they want and Stefan Poiss´ challenge was to create a whole track with this material. The resulting song reminds very much of the good old days of the "Lost Alone - Trilogy", consisting of the albums "Lost Alone", "Dreamweb" and "Crossroads". But form your own opinion, here is the track:

Chrysalide album now available at all stores!



The regular album edition of the Chrysalide album "Do not Be Scared - It's About Life" is now available at all retailers, wholesalers and of course also at all digital download stores!

The French trio Chrysalide is an exception in the industrial genre, as they manage to combine elements of Hiphop and Dubstep with harsh and noisy industrial music and vocals. Although leaning onto pioneers like Skinny Puppy or Velvet Acid Christ, Chrysalide manage to create a unique and believable wall of aggression on their record.
Coma Online says "`Don’t Be Scared, It’s About Life´ is the most unique and complex album I’ve heard all year. In fact, Chrysalide may be the next wave of genius for music everywhere." In Germany the album is honored as "Newcomer of the month" by the Orkus Magazine and "Electro Highlight" by Sonic Seducer.

Here you will find XL audio snippets from the album.

The audio previews of the entire Front Line Assembly soundtrack album for the "AirMech" game are now online and can be found here.
Front Line Assembly is one of the pioneering bands in the electronic industrial world and continues to be guided by founder Bill Leeb. The "AirMech" album has been under development since late 2011 in parallel with the progression of the game. Selections of the music will be deconstructed for use as dynamic music, which reacts to conditions during battle. The limited CD album will contain 12 instrumental tracks and has a total playing time of more than 72 minutes!

The pressing of the CD is already in progress. As already announced each CD booklet will contain an unique and  personal access code for the "AirMech" browser game that allows to play the game in the so-called Front Line Assembly mode. Carbon Games have told us this code has even a value of 10 U.S. dollars. The digital version of the soundtrack has no code included for technical reasons.

"AirMech" is to be released November 16. Here in the shop you can already save your copy of the CD album.

MESH - upcoming live dates!



Before MESH putting the finishing touches to their upcoming album "Automation Baby" which is scheduled for February 2013, the band will enter a few selected European stages. On November 2, MESH will be the first headliner of the legendary British Whitby Gothic Weekend and on December 22, MESH also will be the headliner of the Pluswelt Festival in Krefeld, Germany. MESH played at the Kulturfabrik in Krefeld more than any other place.

MESH are working on their new album titled "Automation Baby“



MESH are reporting back. The Bristol two-piece cult Synth Pop outfit announces their new album under the ominous title “Automation Baby”. The band had entered studio mode for a while, and fans had the opportunity to hear a few glimpses of the new material in form of a couple of “Making Of” clips on the MESH facebook page. If those are representative of the new albums sound, then the long player will feature an intriguing and crunchy sound update accompanied by the fantastic vocals of Mark Hockings. 
Projected album release date is mid February, while a single is planned a month earlier. Apparently the band will have a few surprises up their sleeves, that will be presented before the album release. We admit we are damn curious and will stay tuned for further news … and the birth of that Automation Baby.

New Dependent signing: Chrysalide!

It is not often that the veteran industrial label Dependent signs an album, months after it has been originally released in another territory. Actually, in the 14 year old history of the label, it has never happened at all. This hints that the new Dependent signing CHRYSALIDE must be something special, as the album had been released in France in late 2011 already.

Due to the extraordinary quality of the album “Don’t Be Scared – It’s About Life” CHRYSALIDE managed to launch a slow burning sleeperhits in France and soon found as rare US license partner, as well as Dependent now handling the rest of Europe. Additionally CHRYSALIDE is one of the very few bands that manage to project their harsh electronics and vocals onto stage in a believable manner that really does their music justice. No wonder they had the ability to play a handful of key shows in Germany even before the album was officially released.

The French trio CHRYSALIDE is an exception in the industrial genre, as they manage to combine elements of Hiphop and Dubstep with harsh and noisy industrial music and vocals. Although leaning onto pioneers like Skinny Puppy or Velvet Acid Christ, CHRYSALIDE manage to create a unique and believable wall of aggression on their record. Unlike their Canadian Inspiration the CHRYSALIDE sound is more based on drums, grooves and rhythmic guitar samples than on samples, strings and sequencing chaos. It becomes noticeable that there is a full generation separating the Young CHRYSALIDE from the likes of Skinny Puppy. Equipped with this heavy load of electronics drums, and distorted vocal mayhem.

But not only the sound design steers clear of simple categorizations, also the bands album topics of globalization, European economy, and the effect of a vicious financial market onto the yet helpless individual shows that CHRYSALIDE prefer their samples and lyrics way off the beaten path. Summarizing its qualities, “Don’t Be Scared – It’s About life” is not only a vindicating statement against preset sounds and old-school styles, but also a manifest of true musical and artistic authenticity.
CHRYSALIDE don’t look like one of the revelations in this scene in 2012, they are probably THE REVELATION of this year.

There will be two versions of “Don’t Be Scared – It’s About Life” on the Dependent label, a regular CD edition and a very limited Double-CD collectors edition, containing preciously unreleased bonus tracks.
Both are now available for pre-order at our shop. Only the regular edition will be available from November 2 at all record stores.
Here you will find XL audio snippets from the regular edition and here from the limited edition, too.
