NEW PROSPERO AND MOTORJESUS COMING FROM ARTOFFACT!

PROSPERO “TURNING POINT”
New PROSPERO album featuring Fractured, Xorcist, Mara’s Torment and more!
Wade Anderson (aka Prospero) isn’t a new figure to Toronto’s lively industrial scene. DJ, remixer, graphic designer, and novelist, Anderson has collaborated with the likes of Terrorfakt, Converter, Displacer, Flint Glass, Dym, and several other respected artists in his long career. Turning Point is Prospero’s third album (second for Artoffact) and features nine new tracks, five remixes, and guest appearances from Toronto’s Fractured and Mara’s Torment, as well as a special surprise remix from Xorcist. The album mixes industrial, noise, and ambient, delving into musical spaces that other producers can only dream of. Turning Point will go down as one of the most innovative albums of the year!

MOTORJESUS “WHEELS OF PURGATORY”
MOTORJESUS burst into the metal scene in 2004 with Dirty Pounding Gasoline, which was celebrated by the press and extremely popular with the metal community, and Deathrider (2006), both of them earning the band countless live appearances: from clubs to concert venues, alongside heroes great and small, from Motorhead to Anthrax, Prong to Hatesphere. Now there’s their latest album, WHEELS OF PURGATORY – and Motorjesus are really letting it rip again! The album contains 13 powerful rock songs plus a cover version of the Neil Young classic ‘Old Man’ as an atmospheric finale. The opener ‘Motor Discipline’ is a crossbreed of rock with metal, refining this explosive nitrogen mix with a number of surprises. The same applies to the consciously snotty ‘King Of Dead End Road’ and the harsh ‘Hammer Of The Lord’ with its ironically witty lyrics. Wheels Of Purgatory – a heavenly heavy rock album, and at the same time a veritable ride to hell and back! Released on Artoffact records and available February 8th, 2011.

2. Motor Discipline
3. Fist Of The Dragon
4. King Of The Dead End Road

JOY DIVISION “+- (PLUS/MINUS) – 10x 7″ VINYL BOXSET”
Rhino Records UK / Warner Music are proud to announce the release of ‘+ -” (plus minus) – a unique Joy Division retrospective box set consisting of 10 7″ singles on vinyl presented in a beautiful clamshell box. All tracks have been newly re-mastered from original tapes by Stephen Morris and Frank Arkwright (Metropolis Studios) with creative direction for ‘+ -” box set artwork coming from Peter Saville.

Although they released two albums in two years – “Unknown Pleasures” (1979) and “Closer” (1980), Joy Division recorded many other tracks throughout their career that were released on stand-alone singles – most notably ‘Transmission” and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart”. +- brings these singles, and more, together in one place. Anyone purchasing the physical box will have the opportunity to download (for free) all the tracks in hi quality mp3 format. As a co-founder of the legendary independent label Factory Records Peter Saville leant his eyes to the project providing stunning outer packaging and suggesting the concept for the sleeves. Each cover is based upon its original and – as a snapshot of a band and a time – serves to remind the owner of the unique position Joy Division hold in British musical history. +- boxes are individually numbered 1-5000 and contain 10×7” records. People who purchase the box also have the option to redeem (for free) a full mp3 version of the box. Released on Rhino and available December 21st, 2010.

KOMOR KOMMANDO “OIL, STEEL, & RHYTHM – LIMITED”
His last year “Das EP” assault is still resounding high and loud on the dancefloors…yet Sebastian R. Komor knows no rest. With this new full length album from his solo-project KOMOR KOMMANDO, he goes back in time, plunging us into the rusty decaying factories around the world, utilizing machine sounds and metal percussion. Throughout these 15 tracks, you can feel the oil dripping through the sounds and hammers slamming out the beats. It is dark, cold, melodic and unforgiving. It is hard-hitting, heavy, sarcastic and loud. “Oil, Steel & Rhythm” offers you another power surge of 100% club hits including the unavoidable “Triggerfinger”, “Das Oontz”, the floor-packing “Rhythm Machine”, the angry “Predator” featuring guest vocals by Sascha of KMFDM or yet the boiling “Slaves of Machines”… This is KOMOR KOMMANDO taking Industrial to 11. Play at maximum volume! Based in Edmonton – Canada, Norwegian Sebastian R. Komor is also renown for his successful activities under the ZOMBIE GIRL, ICON OF COIL, SQUAREHEAD and BRUDERSCHAFT monikers. He also revealed his talent as a studio engineer/music producer for bands like ALPHAVILLE and AYRIA… The album is also released as a deluxe limited carton box edition with the 16-track bonus disc “Das Limited Editzion Remixes” featuring danceable reworks by acts in the likes of KMFDM, KANT KINO, GRENDEL, IMPERATIVE REACTION, MASSIV IN MENSCH, IVARDENSHPERE, XP8, DETROIT DIESEL, etc. Released on Alfa Matrix and available February 25th, 2011.

ARMAGEDDON DILDOS “UNTERGRUNT LIMITED”
Since the announcement last year of their signing to Alfa Matrix, the return of this living legend has been one of the most anticipated events on the EBM scene! Today, ARMAGEDDON DILDOS delivers to you their new studio assault entitled “Untergrund”. Hold your breath! Created back in 1989 by Uwe Kanka and Dirk Krause, ARMAGEDDON DILDOS rapidly caught the ear of Talla 2XLC who signed them to his Zoth Ommog label. With EBM club hits like “Never Mind” and “East West”, the duo instantly acquired a very strong live reputation through their explosive and high-energy performances which brought them all over the world. Album after album, the German boys progressively mixed their pure technoid EBM sequences with more industrial tones, and later also started fusing guitars and even pop elements into their fast sequenced electronic sounds. Their ascension also brought them collaborating with various renown producers including Keith “Fluffy” Auerbach (Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, Skinny Puppy, etc.), Bob Kraushaar (Pet Shop Boys, David Bowie, etc.), Andy Gill (Gang of Four, Michael Hutchence, etc.) or yet Mathias Black (Tommy Stumpf, The Fair Sex, Karl Bartos).
After over 10 years of intensive collaboration, Dirk and Uwe parted ways leaving Mister Kanka alone at the helm of the ARMAGEDDON DILDOS ship. Captain Uwe took the challenge and continued to carry the DILDOS flagship even further on his strong shoulders. Surrounded by a new line-up and announcing a return to a more electronic oriented type of sound, ARMAGEDDON DILDOS released “Morgengrauen” and “Sangreal” in 2003 and 2005. The new “Untergrund” album is packed with songs in both the German and English languages and offers a boiling cocktail of frontal minimal EBM, muscled melodic hooks, strong carrying vocals and a gritty touch of power. Reminiscent of RAMMSTEIN in the force of their powerful German vocals, ARMAGEDDON DILDOS have musically been declared the German counterpart to FRONT 242. With his new album, Uwe Kanka proves to us once again that less can be much more, and that he has that impressive talent to mix upbeat sequences, with dark synths while perfectly balancing them with catchy sing-along melodies, choruses and dynamic guitar intrusions. After the astounding return of LEAETHER STRIP also on Alfa Matrix, this is another big and promising return… Come! ARMAGEDDON Come! Kick us in the face! Knock us out with one punch!! The album also gets released as a limited 2CD carton box with 14 exclusive remixes and a special collaboration together with Myk Jung (FAIR SEX). Behind the remixing desks we will notice amongst others PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE, DIGITAL FACTOR, DARKMEN, AUTODAFEH, MUMMY HURT MY HEAD, INERTIA, etc.

DAFT PUNK “TRON LEGACY”
Original soundtrack to the highly anticipated 2010 motion picture, composed by the multi platinum Electronic duo Daft Punk. It’s no accident that the group’s two visionary musicians, Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, are Tron fans too. Having grown up with an admiration for the ground-breaking Tron film in the 80s, Daft Punk took on the scoring of the next chapter of the story with extraordinary thought and precision. The critically acclaimed French duo composed and produced the album. The Duo assembled a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and recorded the orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios, Britain’s premier scoring facility. Released on Universal.

PARHELION “MIDNIGHT SUN”
Canada’s Parhelion first full length album “Midnight Sun” is a collection of sonic reflections on the natural geography and harsh climate of the arctic terrain. Perhaps more so, it is also a meditation on the sacred quality of this mysterious land and man’s relationship to it. Inspired both by the physical beauty as well as the mystic spirit which shrouds the northern landscapes, the album is the culmination of several years of studio experimentation and sound exploration. Blending guitar drones, icy synth pads and environmental sounds, “Midnight Sun” attempts to convey the solemn spirit of awe and reverence for the great white north through the use of sound and texture. Edition of 1000 copies in 6 panel Digipack.12 Tracks. Running Time 60:00. Released on Cyclic Law.

THOLEN “NEUROPOL”
After his acclaimed first album “Sternklang”, THOLEN now offers us his new album “Neuropol”. Neuropol is the name of a fictional city bleak scenarios of a post-apocalyptic world are painted. A society divided in two distinct classes populates this contaminated place, a lethargic mass of working slaves on the surface trapped in vast industrial landscapes and the elite underground, who direct their doings while gaining power from rituals for the church of Miro. This is a time of imminent change and possible revolution, since the slaves gathered spiritual power for resistance. This album reveals the darkest corners of these subterranean temples, deadly industrial complexes and hostile slums, where those enslaved are in search of spiritual salvation from mass control and misery . A roadmap of the winding paths of the oppression of flesh and spirit. Come to learn about the beauty of impending decay. Come to Neuropol. Limited Edition of 1000 copies in 6 panel Digipack. 8 Tracks. Running Time 70:00
