Based out of Charlottesville, Virginia, Bella Morte has been formed by Andy Deane and Gopal Metro in 1996, the band released a cassette demo entitled "Remorse", and they win the 1997 Virginia Battle of the Bands. Soon after they released their first full length album, "Remains", adding new material to the demo. In 1999, with guitarist Frizzle the band released their second full-length "Where Shadows Lie". Originally released on the independent label Some Wear Leather the album was picked up by Cleopatra Records for release in 2000, allowing the band time to record two bonus tracks featuring new guitarist Bn Whitlow. After a tour with Cruxshadows and a mini album (printed as 300 vinyl copies and which went out of print in an istant) Bella Morte teamed up with producer Kevin McNoldy and completed the recording of this new album: THE QUIET. Featuring tracks written over the past three years, with contributions by Bn Whitlow and new guitarist Tony Lechmanski the band continued developing their style merging influences of goth, electro pop and punk (like "Living Dead" or "Christina) which reminds me the later Misfits). At a first listening I was really impressed by the personal band's style and even if I think that the vocals are their weak point, tracks like "Regret", "Whispers", "First Light" or "Christina" are immediate and powerful. Maybe goth or electro purists will despise them but even if they don't fulfill my tastes they are a band to follow.
Artist: VANGELIS
Title: BLADE RUNNER (SOUNDTRACK)
Format: CD
Label: Atlantic
Distributor: Warner Brothers
Movie BLADE RUNNER mark its 20th year, since the original release, 1982. One of a remarkable sci-fi history making by Ridley Scott, that's based on the late Phillip K. Dick 1968 novel "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?", who died the same year the movie came out in theaters. The music score is done by synthesizer master himself, Vangelis, who also did the electronic music score for academy award winning film, "Chariots Of Fire." Vangelis futuristic music is an outtake of some of the characters and what's going on in the film. Some tracks on disc are heard in the film, but most wasn't release. Now you can have the opportunity to listen to all the scores including "Tales Of The Future", "Blush Response", "Wait For Me", "Love Theme", and "Blade Runner Blues". A few tracks features dialogue from the movie. Best soundtrack ever produced with electronics!

Format: CD
Label: Ninthwave (@)
Distributor: Ninthwave
Empire State Human new 2002 release "Alpha & Omega" is the follow up from their previous highly acclaimed debut cd "Pop Robot." There are 15 rare tracks from both the "Martian Anthems" & "Pop Robot" recording sessions. These diverse digital electronica tunes features remixes and collaborations with some of today's best underground artists such as COUNT TO INFINITY, FREEZEPOP, WAVE IN HEAD, & ONE LAZY EAR. Some songs have mid-tempo ballads like "Fallout" and the beautiful piano and strings melody "Wait Until The Night." A remake of two movie themes; John Barry's "Persuaders" and John Carpenter's horror classic "Halloween" that's done in a techno style. The Irish trio is very talented and unique in their own way. Who knows what will they do on their next album. If you like Erasure, I guarantee you'll like ESH!

Artist: THE END (@)
Title: THE HANDS OF HOPE
Format: CD
Label: Self Release
Chicago's based, The End, recorded an extraordinary cd titled "The Hands Of Hope", which talks about love, sadness, hope, and lost. Ryan Socash who do mostly all vocals and play instruments pours out his emotional feelings. You can definitely hear the expressions he's pulling out of his system. The album is darkwave pop with songs like "Gods Above God", "Beyond Recovery", "Aurora's Lost", "The Faithless Daze", and the self title "The Hands Of Hope". There are two songs on disc that's different from the rest of the tracks; "Here I Fall" have a synth-pop dance feel and "Tears (Love Last)", a harsh industrial noise-filled. The End mostly perform acoustic, it'll be interesting to see how they sound unplug.
