Artist: HUMAN AFTERTASTE (@)
Title: Eat Our Meat
Format: CD
Label: Octopoid
Never dreamed to be part of a freak show? These circus of poor people were usual at the beginnning of the last century but who told you that marketing and industrialized world haven't got any? Human Aftertaste took all these aspects and reworked all together forming a multi medial circus of modern aberrations. Visually they mix modern art (do you remember the Andy Warhol paint of the Bean soup? The band did a similar thing but using their logos. "Eat our meat" tells the can on the front cover) and trash american culture where everyone can be Mc Donald and can sell whatever he wants to. You can find a similar taste checking the multi media part of the CD (which contains also the video of "Diamond Studded Halo") where the Humans seems modern corpse grinders that eat and vomit every aspect of modern life. Musically they sound industrial mixed with metal and punk. A sort of Marilyn Manson with a specific mission: deconstruct modern life. Check "In That We Trust" and it'll be your anthem of the day!

Artist: ALPHAVILLE (@)
Title: Crazyshow
Format: CD
Label: Moonbase (@)
Since early eighties Alphaville are one of the most known and appreciated synthpop German bands but during the years Marian Gold and friends enhanced their music with new ideas and sounds. They haven't been particularly productive over all these years if you think that they produced only six studio albums in nineteen years. Fortunately for their fans in 1999 they released an eight CD box (titled "Dreamscapes") containing unreleased tracks, unreleased versions and a live CD. With this CRAZY SHOW the band wanted to do something in that vein (in fact it is also known as DREAMSCAPES 09, 10,11 and 12) bringing to the fans a four cd box set which has been released in a special format. It contains a full color booklet, super rare, previously unreleased alphaville audio stuff and all the websongs which were presented between 2000 and 2001 for the very first time at the Alphaville website. The four CDs are titled THE TERRIBLE TRUTH ABOUT PARADISE, LAST SUMMER ON EARTH, STRANGER THAN DREAMS and WEBSITESTORY and contain forty eight songs which show the multifaceted soul of the band bringing us acoustic ballads (like "State Of Dreams" or "Still Falls The Rain"), catchy synthpop tunes (like "Hurricane" or "Shadow She Said"), introspective and almost ambient/experimental moments (like on "Crazyshow", produced with Klaus Schulze and "On The Beach") and also a couple of covers (Roxy Music's "Do The Strand" and George Harrison's "Something"). The album is limited to 2500 copies and is available only through the band website and through www.adifferentdrum.com

Artist: STARK (@)
Title: Wield E.P.
Format: CD
Label: Ground Under Productions (@)
Distributor: Audioglobe
Incredible new release for Ground Under Productions which from the Australian underground brings to light a new e.b.m. industrial act called Stark. Their WIELD E.P. will make no hostages because its eight songs are killer ones. If you are sick of waiting new Wumpscut tracks and you feel kinda nostalgic about his early releases or if you need more Hocico in your life this is for sure your new addiction. Since the first track this E.P. presents a band with an "in your face attitude" but with a good taste about arrangements. You know, distorted is better but if you use the right melody/sounds with stops and go and everything that is able to pump the adrenalin in your body that's so good... The three versions of "Wield" (the only song take form the forthcoming album titled "The Surgical Suite") are cool but also the other five tracks, "Pattaya", "On Your Skin", "Exquisite Pain (Chance)" and the instrumental "Venus" and "Lifestyle" are able to show Stark's skills immediately. They are no clones and are worth your attention!

BUY from  BUY NOW from MUSIC NON STOP (MusicNonStop.co.uk)
After ten years of fairy sounds, various sperimentations and sixty nine CDs in their catalog, Prikosnovenie decided to shoot this moment into a color glossy A5 booklet of twenty pages and with a CD containing seventeen bands/tracks of which eleven are unreleased. During the seventy minutes of the CD you could meet all the label's artists and know their musical realm where music has no geographic region (see the medio Oriental influences of Anassane, Phil Von & The Gnawa Musicians Of Fés, Ringe Ringe Raja, Prajna and Christin Wolz) and where the time limit see no limits bringing you on a travel towards medio eval tunes and atmospheres (see Caprice, Irfan, Gor, Louisa John-Krol and Love Sessions). The remaining ones explore the ambient sounds or mix different genres creating fluctuating atmospheres and introspective moments. If you want to have an idea of the label this is the perfect point where you can start.

Artist: Apocalypse Theatre (@)
Title: Lost in America
Format: CD
Label: Caroline Records (@)
Distributor: Caroline Records
Apocalypse Theatre
Lost in America
Caroline Records
Underground Inc

This cd Lost in America is pure bliss. First of all there must be about 20 people or so in this band playing confederate drums guitars keyboards drum machine you name it they'll play it picture a good time all equipped with theatrics.

Kami is there performance artist girl a beautiful little goth girl playing with a demented teddy bear to all the craziness around her tormente in her world with all these lost souls surrounding her like there taunting her in a dream playing their music for her requeim.

Track one The disease containing back up sings that compliment their lead singer snging they all fall down like a demented version of london bridges gone wrong. This song tells all tells of all the lost souls in the world that fall down from something they can't fight against. This song makes you move as well as think.

Track Two- Lust Love Lies is to me is one of the most dancy songs on the whole cd singing with catchy little lines like I want to be your salvation even if it means my damnation. Hey with words like this you just gotta listen.


Track eight- Dorothy is probably the most Sistery of the Mercy song I have ever heard but that is a compliment singing about the heartland as if this is the last song to be played before the apocalypse the guitars along will haunt you and will pull at you they will taunt you they will make you believe the apocalypse is here the 20 men and women of the apocalypse are here they have arrived but as a band that are going to rock you till you fade out burn out and join them.

Dorothy like the Wzard of Oz you might think is the same ut the devil has her and she isn't coming home!

Apocalypse Theatre is a theatre of madness you have metal throw in some new wave antics add some old school goth element and call on the civil war with those confederate drums and you got Apox almost like a disease that grows on you and won't let go.

One of the most promising bands hailing from Minneapolis.
