January 2019 Dear friends and partners,

We wish you all the best for 2019 and thank you for your support and loyalty!!!
We are preparing many projects, including a new album, several compilations and re-issues of rare and unreleased works (music and images).

The first one is “SOME EXPERIENCES WITH SHOCK” vinyl LP limited Artist Edition:60 copies from the 500 copies Dark Entries Records DE232 edition
PLUS an original signed A4 print on Epson Archival Matte paper
PLUS 5 cards in a signed envelope
PLUS free digital downloadPrice: 49,80 EUR incl. VAT or 41,50 EUR (export) + shipping costsYou can order your copy at BAIN TOTAL: baintotal[at]wanadoo[dot]fr
or Big Cartel: https://bit.ly/2VzER1R
or Bandcamp: https://bit.ly/2COpCug

Originally released in 1984, it has been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios / Berkeley from the original tapes.“With SOME EXPERIENCES WITH SHOCK, issued in 1984 on Terrace & Maky (TM) in classic vinyl limited edition, DIE FORM add a more extreme dimension to their work.
The first part, recorded in studio with analog equipment, contrasts with the second side, improvised in the fever of paramedical oppression, with aggressive sonorities from new digital synthesizers.
Devoted to the madness (the phantom of Antonin ARTAUD is not far) and handling the machines with instinct, DIE FORM advance on the way of industrial electronic creation, without concession.”


The standard vinyl edition is available at DARK ENTRIES Records: http://www.darkentriesrecords.com
“TEARS OF EROS” vinyl is still available at MECANICA Records: https://bit.ly/2RV98WG

Melinda & Maciek is a project started in February 2018 thanks to an

accidental Instagram connection between 2 musicians. Melinda Ligeti is

a composer/singer/multiinstrumentalist/arranger/producer from Serbia,

living in Italy, while Maciek Cieslak is a drummer from Poland, living

in France. It all started with Melinda's old wish to write music based

on a bare drum track. Maciek happened to have some ready, recorded

drumparts that he sent to her, and she used them to build music upon

it, using piano, synth and bass. It was an experimental approach to

composition Melinda always wanted to try, and it finally happened. The

result is 4 songs, mixing jazz, prog, fusion, chillout,

contemporary… imagined as a mini album, giving the taste of what

this project might become if developed further. 3 of them are

instrumental, and one is also involving Maciek's vocals that got

caught on microphones while recording the drumpart, a selfironic song

that makes fun of the hardship of singing and playing at the same

time, in his native Polish language. Jazz Frit is a symbolic title for

this album, for the fact that musicians involved are living in

(Fr)ance and (It)aly, but also, and so much more, for the meaning of

frit word, which by Oxford dictionary definition is the mixture of

silica and fluxes which is fused at high temperature to make glass,

plus – according to urban dictionary means intoxicating/exciting, as

well as ligthly fried.

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.

New non-album Sigillum S digital single, “ Intra-dimensional Mining”.

While waiting for the release on September 14 of the new Sigillum S album, “The Irresistible Art Of Space Colonization And Its Mutation Implications “ (pre orders here https://sigillum-s.bandcamp.com/), a totally new and unavailable elsewhere track is also available now for streaming and free DL, thanks to the mighty XLR8R.


This has been created as a kind of post-project statement, partially re-assembling inputs recorded during the album session and partially recording brand new stuff… the perfect lenses for things to come.
