Artist: Prick
Title: The Wreckard
Format: CD
Label: Lucky Pierre
Distributor: Lucky Pierre
Prick The Wreckard consisting of Kevin Mc Mahon who is the lead singer warne livesey bass and engineering Gary King, live drums Garret Hammond live dums and John Guciardo guitar solo on track 10.

This band hails from Lakewood Ohio who are known for doing the musical hit song for the score of Showgirls the movie. A speical note did you know the band doesn't even own a copy of this I found that very intreresting!


On to the review. This is the most bowiesque band I have ever heard in my life next to Chris Connelly and the bells


Track One Three Rings is poetic justice. Kevin sings I was out on the wire looking for the quickest way down swallowing fire playing the clown this is very inellectual sounding with heavy guitar riffs and industiral voiceovers.

Singing troubles with the world today freedom causes confusion leave your troubles up to me very upbeat Bowie sounds on this one.


Track seven Actress is very Mansony and Newlydeads sounding singing all this sex and violence came from my tv very reminscent of god is in the tv need I say anymore all the glam anyone could handle perhaps a dance floor track.


Track eleven Darling Dead singing stay with me my darling dead there will be drugs everwhere very rockstar sounding telling a story of sex drugs and rock and roll that age old cliche rebel rebel youre face is a mess enough said.


Track fourteen Universe the most abstract song on the whole album very shoegazer so much abstractness this is a dali painting that Bowie is holding in front of you the audience singing The universe is amusing and painting 1575349, the universe is taking my jacke and never explaining why? asking why? throughout this song singing destruction is pointless the angels are truth angels are a threat to others why? llots of strangeness and moody piano very diverse song for an indusrial band.

The most diverse album I have heard in a long time! 3 stars


look for my interview with Prick soon!


Artist: Sealed in Silence (@)
Title: Stille lst Selbstmord
Format: CD
Label: Cold Noir/Facilty Records
Distributor: Darkland Music
Sealed in Silence Raphael is the brains behind this band. the cd
Stille lst Selbstmord film noir-esque. Picture Cold Meat Industry meets surreal landscapes and encounters frankenstein, hitler and phantom of the opera all at once.


A cd that is not like others.

Track one Todeswunsch is very haunting very Leatherstrip-esque filled with samples and machine gun sounds demented church choirs high octave sounds and voiceovers of screaming and electronic technology overpowering everything.


Track twoTodeslast female vocals singing a requiem for the dead. with a hint of electro making it an electro funeral for the dead. Ethereal symphonies meets a new revolution.


Track six Todesangst hammer meets metal sounds very heavy drum machine heavy machinery taking over the primitive. For we have evolved technology is everywhere and will reign.



Over all this cd conquers the conformist way. It is by all means as original as it gets.
The band has distrubution in northamerica United States Darkland Music Cold Noir Facilty records.


It also has distrubtion in Germany Europe also.


This band originated in Germany we are glad to have them here where they belong.

Incorporating sound scapes film noir german expressionism and making it flow with futurisic elements now that's talent. 4 stars


Look for my interview with Raphael coming soon.

Artist: Red X Rebellion (@)
Title: Red X Rebellion
Format: CDS (CD Single)
Distributor: redxrebellion
Red X Rebellion is a band hailing from the outskirts of chicago Singer is Sean Jason is the guitarist Brian is the bassist and co-founder of the band and Pat is the second guitarist.

This 4 song demo has alot of potential very hard driven lots of energy and raw power very Alice in Chains sounding.


Track one-Wounded Ground heavy guitar and the great singer singing every day i think of what to say about repressed memories.

Track four- Intravenous Love really stuck in my head very poetically based song singing I felt the cold winds growing and when the dark is calling. with a overlay sample apologize for all the mistakes you made. This is a very strong track. Also singing
back then you were fooling someone saying you ain't pulling the wool over my eyes.
This band is thought provoking very moving and just plain kicks your ass all over the dance floor designed to leave you with great emotions this band brings out all of them. 4 stars


A gothic industiral heavy band worth seeing check them out you're in for a ride of your life!

Title: spirit of the mountain
Format: 2 x CD (double CD)
Label: hau ruck!
Distributor: tesco
take the somewhat deranged genious of a long experienced musician with an inclination to surprising his fans like raffaele cerroni, let him put together and lead a bunch of creative, well mixed postindustrial/neofolk artists like the sexy-voiced j.weber (novy svet’s brains), DBPIT, the-up-and-coming trumpet detuner and clauDEDI, co-founder and bass player of the great ain soph, let him sprinkle the resulting madness with some well balanced guests such as frl.tost and alice cerroni, wrap it all up in a luxurious Hau Ruck! package and , hey presto!, you have the latest collector’s item for independent music lovers’;
not only is labelling this double album (the cd and the lp are not sold separately) kind of hard, it’s belittling, too :
its tracks range from martial marches ("captain kwaart", though very distant from the funny live version) to dance songs ("z’ruck zu dir"); from genuine avant-garde ("print: ctrl F12"), to folk ("hostaria disco dance"); from dreamy ballads ("night on monte rosa") to creepy, haunting pieces ("swing of fools") ...
enough to puzzle the most experienced listener;
the deformed artists’ faces you’ll see in the inner cover, reminding of suffering souls in hell, will take you hand in hand through the mirror to experience another magic voyage over the 25 tracks of this absolute masterpiece, issued two years after the one that spawned the austro-italian "alliance", "roma, wien".

notice: this double album comprises 1 cd + 1 lp (not 2 cds!!!)

Title: Mr. Velcro Fastener presents Deep Inside Vol.2
Format: CD
Label: e:motion (@)
Distributor: Caroline
Damn! We've got some really hot stuff here! Somebody just opened a can of some major ass kicking, and that someone is Tatu Peltonen and Tatu Metsatahti, better known as Mr. Velcro Fastener. The two Finnish DJs based out of Turku's ever-active electronic scene are back behind the decks for the second volume of their "Deep Inside" project commissioned by Berlin-based e:motion label and featuring a lot of hard to locate and rare unmixed full-length material. An extraordinary collection of gems that reflects the last ten years of making music together. By assembling some of their personal favourites and providing us with liner notes on why they chose each specific song, the two Tatu's re-trace their evolution and their artistic path all the way back to 1993. Throughout the compilation you can hear how much the duo's been influenced by Kraftwerk's robotic music and by their various electronic successors... The CD features the unique Brown+Booth duo Autechre, The Black Dog, Mouse on Mars, Fujiya & Miyagi, Mr. Velcro Fastener themselves with their Miami Vice-inspired "Testarossa" track (wasn't Tom Selleck the one with the Ferrari Testarossa in Magnum P.I. anyway?), Detroit-sould Kenny Larkin, Monolake (the porject by Robert Henke, who created the affordable music software Ableton Live who along with Acid, Reason and a few others is becoming one of electronic musician's favourite tools), Herbert alias 08 Doctor Rockit, H.E.A.D., John Tejada (also collaborating with DJ Sage on their indie-rcok band Meathe), Carl A. Finlow aka Voice Stealer (also known as El.ek.tro, Random Factor, Silicon Scally), Morgan Geist (from Metro Area, Titonton Duvante, Sage, Faumgeist, Ghee, Like This Production and founder of Environ records). Among other things nice brown carboard-looking deluxe digipack. Sit tight, this is a great ride!
