FLIEHENDE STÜRME is the the german Wave-Punk band as such. Arisen from the just as legendary hardcore punk band CHAOS Z in the mid-80s, FLIEHENDE STÜRME continue on the one hand with the tradition of their hard, uncompromising punk style from the earlier days, but also use on the other hand electronic elements like drum machines and synthesizers and create that way a composition of germanspeaking Punk and Wave. Until today they have consequently developed their own incomparable style. FLIEHENDE STÜRME has earned with their uncompromising sound an absolute exceptional position in the entire Independent and Underground Scene, from Punk, Alternative and Wave to Gothic.

Until 1995 the band was consisting of the brothers Andreas and Thomas Löhr, both still from the CHAOS Z times. After the death of Thomas Löhr (shortly after the recordings of the album “Fallen” ˆ 1995) Andreas Löhr continued with FLIEHENDE STÜRME, at the studio as solo project and on stage with live musicians. After the release of the album “Himmel steht still” in 2001, Andreas Löhr left Germany and withdrew to Portugal, but not to finish his musical career. As a result, terriffic new albums emerged at regular intervals and he also returned to Germany for numerous concerts over and over again.

2011 FLIEHENDE STÜRME present their new album “Warten auf Raketen”, in contrast to the previous albums this one was mostly recorded by the complete band, now again grown to a trio with Jens Halbauer on drums and Uwe Hubatschek on bass.

Once again the band “re-invented” itself and nevertheless the tracks, all written by Andreas Löhr, have got from the first song “Sterne” the absolute typical recognition value. Manic guitar riffs and the distinctive voice as well as the hammering bass lines from Uwe Hubatschek and the driving and elaborated drum beats from Jens Halbauer impart the special sound to the tracks. Brute and angry, but also floating and melodiously.

„Machine Corps“ – the third release of the British-German project V2A is the best and even harshest album the band has ever created.

With their first two albums „EBM“ (Trisol) and „Mechanized Infantry“ (Biohazzard) V2A became famous for their distinctive way to mix CyberElectro, EBM and Industrial.
„Machine Corps“ goes one step further – it is both more mature and even deeper than its predecessors.
Techno-like vocals meet pumping bass lines and atmospheric soundscapes.

Masterminds Kevin Steward and Ines Lehmann created a new electronic masterpiece – tracks like „Electro Ueber Alles“ and „Cannibal Clan“ will surely become the new Electro-hymns in your local club.

„Centhron = hammers directly into the brain! Concentrated EBM-Industrial-Power!“
(quoted by e-lectric and Radio Dunkelschall)

Centhron was created in Winter 2001. It started with an electronic intimacy between Elmar Schmidt (Voice + Synth + Programming) and Jörg Herrmann (Progamming) which resulted into the first Demo “Melek Taus” in 2002, as Centhron did not want to arrive without a recording medium being the support act on a feindflug concert.

As this demo became rather successful Centhron decided to record a complete album to give it a try in the market.The album „Lichtsucher“ (2003) exeeded all expectations! DAC Dj Bullet Nr.1, fairly represented in the DUC Charts, Zillo Sampler and several requests and congratulations from all over Europe. And all this even without a label!

Gigs in Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium and Italien have been rocked together with Suicide Commando, SITD, Kiew, Xotox, Agonoize, Reaper, Psyclon Nine, Grendel, Soman and many more. Every time the live perfomance has been improved which resulted in positive feedbacks up to waves of exitement.

The live members Melly Thies (Female Voice), Stefan Thies (Bass) and Anette Schmidt (Live Synth) have been part of this “Centhron family” from the very start next to leader Elmar Schmidt and sound engineer Jörg Herrmann. Encouraged as this Centhron started to create the second album „Gottwerk“ (2006), a first-class electro-firework. This time supported by the label “Final Dusk”. As well as “Lichtsucher” this album was rather successful, this time even up to the USA. Unfortunately there has not been a distributor, but the request from several DJ ́s have been frequently. As a result Centhron has sent the disks to USA on it ́s own initiative.

After three years of waiting the album “Roter Stern” was published with Scanner (Dark Dimensions). Mixed by Jan L. (Noisuf X), Cover Art as always by Claudi Corsten, yet another “Gottwerk” slamed the speakers!

After the tour with Agonoize, the Centhron fanbase grown bigger and bigger. Centhron mastermind Elmar Schmidt worked hardly in his studio and created in a new megalomania the most danceble Centhron album ever. DOMINATOR!

In spring 2011 the new album will be released, with the new live bassist Markus Vogler. Fat sound (again mixed by Jan L.) and an aggressiveness that even in the harshelectroscene searches for a double are included in the new album.

So be sure: The dancefloors will burn!

In these times, when we are faced with a world where our leaders more and more take away our liberties and rights every day.
In these times, when we wake up in a society where we feel more and more controlled and paralysed by the media every day.

With his latest album, the South American artist VIGILANTE wants to break the chains of an unfair system. According to himself, this is his best record so far in a short but intense career. He describes it as “the soundtrack for a new revolution” provocatively naming it “The
New Resistance”.

By skillfully mixing elements of Electro, EBM and Metal, he created a hybrid, powerful and passionate sound. Ivan Munoz joined a group of musical underground heroes including members of Clawfinger, Ministry, Strapping Young Lad, Public Enemy, Atari Teenage Riot, Leaether Strip, Die Krupps, Birmingham 6, Feindflug and many more. They form an alliance which confronts the minds of those who believe that they own the world and that the flame of revolution has been extinguished.

This revolutionary musical manifesto demonstrates that there are still dreams to fight for, truths to be told and ideals to die for.

Join The New Resistance!
