COMBICHRIST “MAKING MONSTERS – LIMITED WITH DVD”
If there is one person with ample experience in unleashing sonic monsters unto mankind, it must be Andy LaPlegua, front-berserker and head of Norwegian-U.S.-Electro-Industrial force of nature Combichrist. The band has been spending most of the roughly one and a half years since the release of their highly successful last long play album on tour, also supporting legendary German band Rammstein on their European tour along the way. All the manifold impressions and experiences have certainly left their mark on the new album, which is easily the most versatile release in their career. The new Combichrist-monster is loud, massive and direct, as one would have come to expect from the band and features incendiary floor fillers such as the advance single “Never Surrender” that are among the hardest hits Andy & his lads have ever produced. At the same time Minimal-Electro-influences, menacing, dark slo-mo-steam rollers and an inkling of melodic elements have been seeping into the sound, evolving “Making Monsters” into an inferno of the intense kind. The album will also be hitting shops as a limited edition that is bundled with an infernal live DVD and as a limited edition gatefold double vinyl (extra heavy high quality orange and clear vinyl discs). Released on Out Of Line and available September 7th, 2010.

***** HOT PRE-ORDERS!!

ANDROID LUST “THE HUMAN ANIMAL”
A journey through the psyche of man, as man realizes the futility of living in the grips of ego and surrenders to seek answers within. The Human Animal is the fourth studio release from Android Lust, brainchild of NYC based singer/songwriter/producer Shikhee. It comes four years after the release of Devour, Rise and Take Flight, a track from which garnered a spot on the official Navy NCIS soundtrack album. The Human Animal sees Shikhee collaborating with her live band for the first time in a studio release, giving it an unexpected organic warmth while maintaining her trademark machine edge that cuts uncomfortably if you dare to let it in. Known for her uncompromising ear for fresh sounds, Shikhee scoured the NYC streets and subways with a portable recorder, collecting sounds that found their way as rhythmic and melodic elements throughout the album. There is also a bonus remix of “God In The Hole” by Jerome Dillon (formerly of Nine Inch Nails, nearLY), and Anthony Baldino — an atmospheric opus that is a chilling end to the journey. Released on Synthellec Music and available August 10th, 2010.

ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO “DO ANGELS NEVER CRY AND HEAVEN NEVER FALL?”
Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio is easily one of the most enigmatic and intense projects to grace the non-mainstream music scene. On its new EP “Do Angels Never Cry And Heaven Never Fall?”, the Swedish duo invokes massive orchestral soundscapes, apocalyptic folk visions and ritual drums, intertwined with haunting, yet memorable melodies. On the title track (presented in two different versions each sporting a different musical approach) and the other two new songs, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio address some of the more profound questions of human existence in their most accessible output to date. An enthralling listening experience fuelled by art, passion and fragility. This new EP is an excellent appetizer for the upcoming album, but BEWARE: “Do Angels never cry and Heaven never fall?”
