Jesus On Extasy’s rollercoaster career has left its marks on the vocalist who, together with co-founder Chai Deveraux, embarked in 2005 on the mission of packaging suffering & love into digital rock songs. To this end, the two brothers-in-spirit have not simply cross-bred synthesizers and e-guitars; too many industrial rock acts have bluntly dragged staccato riffs across retro drum machines over the decades. JOE, on the other hand, have expanded the range of their genre with the realisation that inner strife, heartache and catchy tunes do not have to be excluded from synthetic rock music – after all, a good helping of glamour has never done anybody any harm. “You have an unbelievable wealth of sonic options if you blend both instrumental worlds,” production genius Chai describes the hybrid approach of these contemporary rockers. “This combination can create a lot of depth without killing off that rock feel.” Sound fetishism alone isn’t enough for limelight hogger Dorian: “And anyway, synthesizers lend themselves just as much to being smashed as guitars. Perhaps even more.”

After Jesus On Extasy had shared the stage with other antichrist superstars such as Marilyn Manson, Project Pitchfork, Tool and Skinny Puppy, mesmerised the M’Era Luna Festival and performed at Oberhausen’s sold-out Königs-Pilsener-Arena, “the danger of losing touch with reality was great,” Dorian confesses today. “You feel like a giant rock star and people adore you. But make no mistake: we’re no heroes!” The digital dandies have returned to planet Earth after their exhilaration waned, informing their fans of this fact in the title track of their third album, “No Gods”. “Don’t wait for me, ’cause I can’t show you heaven,” begs the beau in the chorus. “There were real rock stars around in the 1970s and 80s, those people were gods. These days, a lot of people may be adored or cast as rock stars, but they’re not.” Dorian pays tribute to one of the idols of his adolescence on “Movie Star”: “’Lost Boys’ actor Corey Haim died this year. I was very touched by his fate. Fame practically gnawed away at him.” “He’s dead but no one cares,” – an example which taught him just how quickly showbiz glamour can fade.

Sound guru Tim Schuldt was asked to channel JOE’s energetic fields – “the right man at the right time,” the vocalist with the double D feels. “We wanted our music to sound harder, more rocking. Show steel, sweat and muscles, as we say in the Ruhr.” The dynamic drumming of new skinsman Dino has moved into the foreground, and the opener “Revenge” is about to dwarf many an industrial rock act from the States. Mind you, JOE’s typically romantic dance on a razor blade certainly isn’t a thing of the past: in the band’s tried-and-tested tradition, the LP closes with the meditative ballad “Tonight”, putting the complexity of the group’s sonic cosmos in a nutshell. Although “Transitoriness” broaches the issue of aging, Dorian made his old childhood dream come true with the “No Gods” cover shoot: art designer Grace Khold transformed Jesus On Extasy into sinister super-antiheroes, telling the story of the CD in a vivid cyber comic. “Riot” sees the Deverauxs let off steam, leaving behind their days of suffering and declaring war on false heroic sagas. Their new motto is to take life into their own hands and rebel if need be. “The true heroes are all those who won’t let themselves be blinded and continue to fight against the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s high time somebody set BP’s headquarters on fire.” JOE are bringing the powder keg. Anybody got a light? Released on Artoffact and available November 9th, 2010.

Beloved Enemy is the second album from Germany’s Jesus on Extasy, a band that has become synonymous with industrial-metal on both sides of the Atlantic. Artoffact Records announces a revamped re-release of this masterpiece complete with three bonus tracks, including remixes by Autoaggression and ASP. When vocalist and pianist Dorian Deveraux and guitarist Chai founded the band in Germany’s Ruhr region back in 2005, they decided to dedicate themselves to nothing less than revolutionizing a genre which had used itself up. They felt that industrial music, originally the soundtrack of the machine age, had become obsolete with the demise of the heavy industries. The time had arrived for sounds which combined the decay, which was perceptible all over the Ruhr, with euphoric elements – in other words, for Jesus on Extasy’s hedonistic mix of post-industrial and glam rock. Released on Artoffact and available August 10th, 2010.

Jesus on Extasy is a five-piece formation from Bochum, Germany who hit it big in the underground press and with DJs with “Assassinate Me” in 2007. Their debut album Holy Beauty followed quickly and is already a classic in the new, 21st century industrial-metal genre drawing comparisons to bands such as Within Temptation, Dope Stars Inc., and Zeromancer. This special re-release features a remix of Assassinate Me by industrial pioneers KMFDM, as well as two special bonus tracks not available on the original edition. Noisy, pounding machines – industrial music, the soundtrack of the age of the machine, Jesus on Extasy combine the elements of the industrial revolution with their very own personal touch. Released on Artoffact and available August 10th, 2010.

Five acclaimed albums; hundreds of headlining shows, four months touring Europe supporting Rammstein (playing to hundreds of thousands of people)… Combichrist is fired up and ready for action! Many acts reach a certain level of success and rest on their reputations, Combichrist’s Andy LaPlegua returned to the studio with a fist full of inspiration and a whole lot of nothing to prove. With the new album, Making Monsters, LaPlegua emerges a more vital beast, stripped of all pretentions. The new album is raw, visceral, and seething with uncompromising urgency. In pushing forward, Combichrist’s playfully sinister facade is torn away. What is exposed underneath is an uncompromising expression of lust, anger, pain, and hate personified. Making Monsters is laden with hook heavy choruses, speaker crushing beats, and dark, aggressive vocals. The first single “Never Surrender” is bound to rule the dance floors along with other floor stompers “They” and “Throat Full of Glass”. The song “Follow the Trail of Blood” (featuring Brandan Schiepatti of Bleeding Through) is an anthem of aggression, and will immediately become a crowd favorite. The brooding “Reclamation” and “Through These Eyes of Pain” show us another side of Combichrist, that of the man inside the monster. With Making Monsters, Combichrist evolves beyond the demon it was, into an unrelenting, malevolent force in music. Released on Metropolis and available september 28th, 2010.

Combichrist has returned with the crushing new album Making Monsters. To accompany the album, Combichrist presents the new single Never Surrender, Featuring four versions of the song, each with an entirely unique take on the track. With the album version already dance club ready, Combichrist was able to offer up versions from an eclectic array of remixers. IAMX gives the track a head spinning rework, MELT turns the song into bombastic industrial metal, Terrence Fixmer turns in a dark, hypnotic electro club track. With this new single and album, Combichrist proves once again that the anger driven madness will not stop. Released on Metropolis and available September 14th, 2010.

Call it drone-doom-dirge-shoegaze or any other in vogue nomenclature you like. It doesn’t matter. The music is so sublime and superb that we consider a waste of time trying to further categorize the spiraling sounds exhaling from a NADJA album. They are simply the true originators of this bred of blissful, seriously intense and ominously ethereal heavy sounds and one the few acts – along with the genius solo work from the duo’s main composer, Aidan Baker – we are truly obsessed with these days. That said, we are more than glad to welcome the Canadian duo to Essence Music with an immense masterwork! Autopergamene – a spell or charm wherein you write in blood, on a fragment of skin, what you wish to happen – finds NADJA at the peak of their sonic language of slow-blooming, heavily nuanced ambient guitar constructions and slow motion, lush, epic heaviness. Divided in three colossal movements, the album starts with the blissful, paced and almost orchestral – much aided by three guest members on strings and Aidan’s trombone, flute and piano – “You Write Your Name in My Skin”, travels through the straight up, super distorted and fuzzed out rumbling sludge riffages of “You Write Your Name in My Head” and its semi-growling processed vocals to finally unfold the nearly half-hour long “You Write My Name in Your Blood” that gracefully starts with delicate, lush acoustic guitars glacially giving birth to an enormous, shimmering and heavily layered symphonic wall to then submerge and bring in a hazy, sparkling and almost passionate, yet twisted, duetto of Aidan-Leah’s male-female voices. Breathtaking. Lavishly assembled in a custom 6-panel digisleeve packaging housing a 6 cards set with beautiful watercolor paintings and artwork by the gifted Portuguese artist L Filipe dos Santos. Superb mastering via James Plotkin. Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

One third of the cult post-industrial Swedish legends MZ.412, one half of the amazing experimental act Beyond Sensory Experience and Nordvargr’s long running loyal partner on classic endeavors – including the abyssal black ambient duo Nordvargr/Drakh. With such high caliber résumé, we are more than honored to present the first DRAKH solo album! While mostly known for his demonic, truly Swedish guitar interventions on the MZ.412 or N/D pitch black ambiences, Bethlehem finds Jonas Aneheim walking through slow, quasi-harmonic, subtle, yet thick drone fields weaving elaborate and unexpected damaged electronic rhythms and harsh, crackling ambient textures that can become – at the same time – both delicate and haunting, warm and freezing, to finally drown in a sea of reverb, glacial riffing and distortion on his own shadowy interpretation of the city of Bethlehem. Simply perfect. Masterfully conceived and recorded on the road during his many world travels over the past years – from the US State of Indiana to Asia –, the album successfully narrates unknown angles from these places via ominous sonic vistas and pallets that truly honor the charming aura and tradition of the bleakest Swedish sounds. Presented in our custom 6-panel digisleeve packaging with stunning and desolate photography by Seldon Hunt. Not coincidentally mastered by no one else than Jouni Ollila (aka Ulvtharm, from the MZ.412 fame) at oLLiLaboratories Studios. Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

The elemental excitement for each new Merzbow album remains intact among us here and, after four long years, the undisputable master returns to Essence Music with a new installment of his unique brand of harsh psychedelic noise assault. A bit distant from Sha Mo 3000’s pulsing, often rhythmic strategies or the recent albums featuring freestyle drums by Masami Akita himself, Camouflage plays by the more straight MERZBOW rules, going back to his comfort zone of audio barbarism. We salute the ferocious torrents of abused, imploding and exploding electronics, the sharp, pulverizing and abrasive high frequencies and the unrelenting punishment of frenzied throbbing machine-screams witnessed in the controlled cacophonic environment of Camouflage! Presented in our deluxe, sturdy gatefold mini-LP packaging featuring intriguing psychedelic collages by Mr. Akita. Limited to 800 copies. Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

Mastered by Peter Andersson and limited to 999 hand-numbered copies.

Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

The Nordic giant purveyor of modern dark ambient death drone sounds strikes again on Essence Music! This time Mr. NORDVARGR leaves behind the detailed abyssal land of haunting minimalistic atmospheres found on Vitagen, released under his full name – Henrik Nordvargr Björkk – and moves towards the blackest side of the drone doom micro cosmos. A grim place where, sitting on the throne, he commands the crushing, ear splitting and slow motion processed guitar blasts that emerge from the depths of the pitch black ambience background. Cavernous rumbles, disembodied voices and disturbing malfunction machines play the role and prepare the terrain for one of the most demonic axe attacks to come! Presented in our custom 6-panel digisleeve packaging with stunning artwork by Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O))), Khanate) and photography by Seldon Hunt. Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

On this second installment for Essence Music, Peter Andersson brings ATOMINE ELEKTRINE to an utterly refined and perfectionist sphere! The trancey beats and sacral atmosphere of Binomial Fusion are past and widely replaced by a truly out-of-body, deeply layered and dynamic cosmic experience in form of a masterful ambience filled with energy outbursts, synthetic movements and algorithmical rhythms. An aural projection for a detailed exploration of nebulas, black holes, exploding stars and unknown deep corners of the cosmos. Very much influenced by the electronic side of the kraut scene and with the ability of imposing his very own classic trademark, Andersson sets a new stone and makes Nebulous one of the greatest albums related to this genre since the early 70’s. Another amazing proof of talent from this Swedish genius! Presented in an snowy white gatefold digisleeve and tracing paper packaging. Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

The Japanese masters of drone and analog feedback never cease to amaze us. Fans actually never know what to expect from a new album. Sludgy guitar riffs, super distorted psych rock or mighty minimal drones? Just be prepared for a new masterpiece, the way only they seem to do it. Soundtrack from film Mabuta No Ura (translated as Backside Of The Eyelids) presents BORIS at their most abstract personality. A stunning guitar-driven psychedelic voyage to an imaginary land where Pink Floyd’s “More” meditates with Sunn 0))) drenched in ambience and feedback! Being a flowing and brooding soundtrack to an imaginary film conceived by the three band members, the album manages to present the listener to a number of moods and soundscapes without actually breaking out of its shell. From mellow, dreamy Syd Barret-inspired acoustic incursions, hazy vocals, slow post-rock tones and rhythms to occasional bursts of dynamics passing through avant-noise experiments and mammoth deep drones of blasting energy (like on the 12 minutes long “Space Behind Me (part 1)”). A contemplative masterwork! Hard to imagine what sort of film Mabuta No Ura must be? The evocative sounds here give us freedom to conjure up appropriate images and quoting Atsuo’s own words: “This is a soundtrack for images that appear on the mabuta no ura of the listeners, by reading the stories contained on the album and listening to the music. It’s dew made from unconsciousness of Boris members. The dewdrops are spun into thread and the thread forms a whole story. The way we refer to images of the daily lives.” We are glad to present this extended Brazilian/world CD version of Soundtrack from film Mabuta No Ura, containing different artwork and exclusive extra music not available on the Japanese CD/LP, housed in a slipcase that holds our luxurious custom heavy mini-replica of the gatefold vinyl including a set of cards unveiling mabuta no ura stories and photos of the band members taken in their most recent European trip. Released on Essence and available August 10th, 2010.

Critically acclaimed and popularly adored, Varieté is Marc’s first complete album of self-written songs since ‘Open All Night’, over a decade ago. The first 3000 copies of the album will be in a limited edition digipak with an exclusive 7-tracks bonus acoustic CD featuring additional unreleased tracks and a 16 pages booklet, while the ‘regular editon’ includes CD1 only. In this, Marc’s 30th year as a recording artist, Varieté, revisits the eras of Marc’s personal and musical life providing an eloquent and sometimes nostalgic, insight into what defines him as a performer. Almond says “The album deals with the themes of the changing times, a yearning for simplicity, regret at loss, growing older, loneliness through the eyes of a performer, madness, letting go, acceptance, as well as our obsession with nostalgia. For me the past and a sense of history is what gives us soul and humanity, gives us value. I wanted to celebrate nostalgia.” Marc is joined on Varieté by long-term musical collaborators:- Neal Whitmore – Guitars, ukulele, piano, harmonica, Omnichord; Martin Watkins – Piano, keyboards, Omnichord; Dave Ruffy – Drums & percussion and Carl Holt – Bass. The album also features a selection of diverse musical guests and collaborators. Released on Strike Force.

Of course a KMFDM retrospective would not be complete without artwork by long-time KMFDM cohort Brute!

KMFDM, the best at being Wurst! Released on Metropolis and available September 28, 2010.

This time, Anders Karlsson and long time partner in crime Jonas Hedberg have enlisted guest vocalist Jared Louche, the driving force behind the legendary Chemlab, to maximise the impact of their sonic assault. Urban Survival is an amalgamation of the band´s early hardcore rhythmic industrial noise and a new-found sense of cathchiness.

T.W.Z. was founded in 2003, spreading religious and mythical words and playing industrial/E.B.M. with ambient parts. The primary concept is Timewave Zero. Most of the songs discuss this subject but in overall the songs are not bound to a specific ideology, rather a category which can best be described as anti-humanistic. On his second album via Advoxya records Richard aka T.W.Z. goes far beyond standard cliches and constructs his own music-sculptures via versatile sound design, combination of different influences and aggressive parts. Club oriented tracks follow by heavy, mystic and dark melodies. This is without a doubt T.W.Z.s darkest, most energetic and danceable album ever. Experience 11 different tracks spanning dark atmospheres and various moods on a total of 50 minutes. Released on Advoxya.

“DAMN this is good. WOW.” – Dependent Forum user reaction. Join the discusssion:

Dead When I Found Her is the studio project of Portland, Oregon’s Michael Arthur Holloway, a professional electronic musician and producer who sites Skinny Puppy, Haujobb, Mentallo & the Fixer, Forma Tadre, Doubting Thomas, amongst other pioneering industrial aritsts as influences. Tracks from the debut album Harm’s Way have been the talk of music forums since they started to appear on Myspace and Soundcloud in 2009, and the attention the project has received is nothing short of impressive. The project soon found a home on Artoffact Records, and 12 tracks were selected for the debut release. Dead When I Found Her re-creates classic late-80’s/early-90’s industrial without sounding cliched, adding a modernized sonic signature to a dark and brooding foundation. Harm’s Way is the perfect album for dark music lovers. Out July 13th, 2010!
