SOL INVICTUS – THE CRUELLEST MONTH – NEW CD!

 

 

 

SOL INVICTUS “THE CRUELLEST MONTH”
Sol Invictus are the godfathers of classic Apocalyptic Folk. With “The Cruellest Month,” they release their first album for six years and make their long-awaited debut for Auerbach Tonträger / Prophecy Productions. “The Cruellest Month” has turned out to be a typical Sol Invictus album in every regard. Music-wise, it’s angular, combative, painful, with pessimistic and cynical lyrics. As well as songs poison-penned by Tony Wakeford, the album contains a number of traditional songs, including Andrew King’s rendition of mass-murder ballad, “Cruel Lincoln,” and Tony Wakeford’s version of class war anthem, “The Blackleg Miner.” “The Cruellest Month” sees Tony Wakeford finding back to his true strengths, cementing the position of Sol Invictus as the spearheads of the Neofolk genre. Cover-painting by Tor Lundvall. Released on Auerbach Tonträger and available June 10th, 2011.

TWO BOMBS FROM VENDETTA MUSIC!! 

 

 

 

REVOLUTION STATE “VIRIDIAN RESONANCE”
For the past five years, RevState has been writing, singing, producing, engineering, painting, dreaming, and tweaking all those knobs in Red Dwarf Studio, with a plan to complete a brand new 13 track LP. Finally, Viridian Resonance is here: analogue laden electronoize that steps across the barriers of genre and sound, bringing you to a place where advanced technology, vintage musical equipment, and the philosophies of the now disbanded Viridian Design Movement will be used to help save this ebbing azure star we call the earth, and provide one hell of a soundtrack to accomplish it to. An eclectic and hypnotic blend of Industrial, Electro, and IDM, with lush textures and deep analog electronics. Released on Vendetta and available May 10th, 2011.

MICK HARVEY “THE BOOK OF THE DEAD”
THE FORMER MEMBER OF NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS RETURNS WITH NEW SOLO ALBUM Internationally renowned for his career with The Birthday Party and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mick Harvey returns with his first fully selfpenned album, SKETCHES FROM THE BOOK OF THE DEAD. In 2007, Harvey started writing songs about the stories and memories he had of some people close to him that he had lost. Throughout 2009, more of Harvey’s old friends and comrades checked out prematurely, and Harvey found himself thinking even more about what it all meant — about the relationships one still has with people after they’re gone and how different experiences bring back different memories and emotions. These thoughts translated into songs for what is now a fully focused project. Harvey co-produced and is featured on PJ Harvey’s latest album, LET ENGLAND SHAKE. Released on Mute and available May 10th, 2011.

HEKATE “DIE WELT DER DUNKLEN GARTEN”
Hekate have been working even longer on their new album than Sol Invictus, but the follow-up to 2004’s “Goddess” is now finally going to be released on June 10th under the title of “Die Welt der dunklen Gärten” (engl.: “The World of Dark/Cryptic Gardens”). On their fifth studio album to date, the group – which ranks among the pioneers of the German Neofolk scene – looks back to the mystical root s of their earlier works and forges a bridge from Classical elements and Oriental rhythms to melancholic Folk. Nearly seven (!) years after “Goddess,” Hekate prove once more, that they have lost nothing of their expressive and artistic powers. Music-wise, “Die Welt …” forges a bridge from Classical elements and Oriental rhythms to melancholic Folk. Once more outstanding are the varied pe- rcussion arrangements so typical of Hekate as well as the alternating vocals by Susanne Grosche and Axel Menz. The brilliant production courtesy of Patrick Damiani (ROME) lends a flair of simple beauty to this album. “Die Welt der dunklen Gärten” sees Hekate return to Neofolk’s first division with the possibly strongest album of their career thus far. The expressive cover artwork is intended as a homage to Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach’s painting “Per Aspera ad Astra”. Released on Auerbach Tonträger and available June 10th, 2011.

!DISTAIN “ON/OFF”
After their DAC top five double album “Anthology 1992-2010” (deleted), !distain are now releasing their sixth studio album “on / off”. The record, produced by Remi Janotta (Ex-Psyche), contains ten new compositions. The album title is meant as an expression of everyday life characterized by contrasts: life and death, peace/war, love/hate, happiness/unhappiness, light/dark, on/off etc. All the greatest possible differences are in reality but one, just like the two sides of a coin. The combination of these opposites is the origin of all being, and especially to promote the digital world – the dual system. Since their establishment in 1992 !distain are merging these seemingly irreconcilable opposites in their music. Just like the suicide- descriptive “Dance In Heaven”, which was embedded by a dreamy pop arrangement, as well as their bitter reckoning with the Catholic Church in 2004, titled “Se*’n’Cross”, which came along as a dancefloor pop track. Radical lyrics & extremely catchy pop melodies! In 2011 !distain are still standing for seemingly irreconcilable opposites, but at the same time going far beyond that. The two containing versions of “mein weg” could not be contradictory. Radio versus club, “on” versus “off”. Released on Echozone and available May 13th, 2011.

01 The 6th Floor
02 Mein Weg
03 Why (bootlicking hypocrites)
04 100%
