Norwegian EBM pioneers Apoptygma Berzerk have announced a reissue campaign for their debut album, Soli Deo Gloria, with Toronto-based Artoffact Records. The album, which launched Apoptygma Berzerk into the spotlight and kicked off a career that would see them release with Columbia, Gun Music, and The End, turns 25 this Fall.
Soli Deo Gloria will be reissued on LP and CD, with the original 13 tracks remastered for vinyl from the original tapes. The CD version will include seven bonus tracks, four of which are previously unreleased. Artoffact Records has designed special splatter vinyl editions in collaboration with Apoptygma Berzerk’s front-man, Stephan Groth, which are each limited to only 250 units worldwide.
Soli Deo Gloria was a massive hit for the band, and includes some of their best-loved songs, including Bitch and Burnin’ Heretic.
Apoptygma Berzerk was formed in 1989 and has released six studio albums, several live albums and best of collections, and a series of experimental EPs. The band has played live on every continent in the world save Antarctica. Artoffact Records has previously designed deluxe vinyl and cassette reissues of some of Apoptygma’s best-loved releases.

collaboration with Mortiis.

Inspired by the mysterious original
demo artwork, art collaborator David Thierree, has once again
faithfully interpreted Mortiis' visions for the cover
artwork.

Funeral Industries on LP and CD. The LP comes on Limited edition
Black, and Red vinyl Versions on December 14.

The Digital
release will be handled by Omnipresence Productions, and will be

VNV NATION DEBUTS NOIRE

“WHEN IS THE FUTURE?” VNV’S FIRST-EVER

OFFICIAL VIDEO HERALDS ITS ARRIVAL

 

 

 

Legendary electronic act VNV Nation is proud to release their latest opus / highly-anticipated 10th studio album – NOIRE.  The album is out October 12th via Metropolis Records, the day VNV embarks on a world tour, which kicks off in North America on November 16, 2018. VNV’s creative-force, Dublin-born Ronan Harris, describes “Noire” as a “dark and intense energy that doesn’t hold back.”  Early media has called the album “Cinematic” and “Majestic.”

The band’s first official video for “When Is The Future?” was released via the band’s social media on October 8, 2018.  In the first 72 hours it had been live, the video garnered over 177,000 views via Youtube and Facebook.  The clip takes us on a tour of Tokyo, following Harris throughout the city, the mood matching the dramatic soundtrack.

Hamburg, Germany-based VNV Nation is known for unforgettable, energetic and inspiring live performances. The live-show promises more to fans than seen before, presenting “Noire” alongside fan favourites and rarities. Special appearances from Berlin synthpop artist De/Vision and Cologne’s dark, new-wave upstarts, Holygram.

“VNV” stands for “Victory Not Vengeance”, espousing the artist’s core message that, “One should strive to achieve, not sit in bitter regret.”  The sound blends poetic and thought-provoking lyrics and emotive music, ranging from electronic beats, alternative anthems and haunting ballads, to post-classical. Over its career, VNV Nation’s success has continued to grow. Its last 3 albums charted top 10 in Germany, and its last album Resonance achieved top 5 Billboard Chart positions in the US.

– ZENI GEVA & STEVE
ALBINI –

‘MAXIMUM IMPLOSION’ – 2CD OUT NOW!

ZENI GEVA & STEVE ALBINI
MAXIMUM IMPLOSION
2 x CD (CSR260CD)
Soundcloud   Soundcloud
MAXIMUM IMPLOSION collects all collaborative (and most sought after) pieces between Zeni Geva (KK NULL) and Steve Albini (BIG BLACK / SHELLAC): “Nai-Ha” and “All Right, You Little B*st*rds!”. Also included are bonus tracks from the ultra-limited 12″-only “Superunit”, presented with meticulous Cedar mastering by legendary mastering engineer Denis Blackham.

On the first CD, Zeni Geva present ultra-heavy Japanese noise rock, with sludgy riffs, thundering feedback, lumbering drums, subhuman bass crawl, and complex noise textures, with KK Null’s trademark vocals / unique guitar accompanied by Albini’s heavy guitar. “Nai-Ha” loosely translates to “broken inside”, with the title track relaying the gruesome aftermath of a car accident.

The second CD captures Zeni Geva and Steve Albini’s live-to-desk tracks from Tokyo & Osaka in 1992. Albini also makes vocal appearances, as well as guitar throughout. All production and mixing by Steve Albini. Final mastering by Martin Bowes at Cage Studios in England, and presented here in its complete form for the first time on Cold Spring.

Presented in a 6-panel double digipak with original artwork/photo by Mitsushiro Hiruma and design/layout by Alonso Urbanos.

Steve Albini continued to produce / engineer several albums for Zeni Geva, including “Desire For Agony” (Alternative Tentacles) and “10,000 Light Years” (Neurot Recordings).
