3 Cold Men - Urban Remixes

 (album of the month February 2006)

After their first debut album, which was very well  received in the international gothic/ electro scene , is there now special for the 3 Cold Men fans, Dj's & other party animals, an album released, with the songs of there first album in a remixed version.

 These remixes will score most likely very good on the dance floor, of every Electro/Gothic/Wave/synthpop party.

 The amusing at this remix album is that it still sounds typically 3 Cold Men, with all good ingredients from there debut album + new elements from the participating remixers.

This album is highly recommendable for every party in your club, pub, home, car, or where you want.

Leaether Strip - After The Devastation

(album of the month January 2006)

Finally after a long time of silence, Leaeter Strip return with a new album. This double album is maybe cleaner,& not so hard as his previous work.The vocals are less distorted.But it is still a very recognisable dark electro sound, like only Leaether Strip can make. A sound full of dark moody atmospheres, strong hard edging lyrics & highly danceble electro basslines.This album is one of the strongest electro releases from the last months.Highly recommandable.

Recently i found this band on the internet. From the first time i listen to them, I know this is a band everyone has learn to know.

There songs have great lyrics & good melody. It would be a big hole in your culture, if you ignore them. Almost Every electro & synthpopfan will float in higher environments, when they are opened to the synthetic music of Asmodeus X .There music is a mixture from EBM, synthpop, dark wave, industrial, minimal electro & 80’s styled wave. Comparisons in style can be made with bands like Front 242, Poesie Noire, A Split Second, The Electric Hellfire Club, Death in June & New Order.

CTRL - Lose The Image

 

 

Yesterday I found this album by my mail. Strange I never heard from this band before. Musically they have there own sound, but to describe this album to people who are also new to there music I would describe there sound as O.M.D. meets *The Cure & New Order. Especially the guitar reminds to good old New Order. The down tempo songs on this album remind me to the songs on the “ Disintegration “- album by The Cure. CTRL use musical elements from different genres. This makes this album very alternating. To name a few examples of elements that can be found in there music, here they are: Electro, EBM, Wave, Industrial, synthpop ,etc. It is hard to find a weak song on this release. I will play some of the highligts of this album, on our upcoming Electrogeneration-parties.

 

Tracklist:

 

1. Transition One

2. Truth

3. Departure

4. Transition Two

5. Recognition

6. Left To Find

Into The Fray - Supernatural Love Affair

(Album of the month)

 A few weeks ago i was listening to radio free abattoir, an internet radio  specialised in gothic, dark wave & other dark styled music. It was on this radio i first heard Into The Fray’s musical talents. I was overwhelmed  by the warm synthetic sound of this one man project. Almost unbelievable, that just one guy can make such professional sounded songs on his synthesizers , without the use of any software. His songs have a soul, something you can’t say from most new electronic bands. On his strong debut album “Supernatural Love Affair”, there are 9 songs which are all great. Every Into The Fray song sounds quite unique, and have there own dark theme. The songs are catchy, melancholic, dark and very danceable.... they have everything to become great undergroundclubhits. Highly recommendable for a good party @ the goth/electrodancefloor . To be continued... soon, we hope J 

 

1. Dreamstate Reality
2. Supernatural Love Affair

3. Heartache
4. Luster

5. Fade Away
6. Our Finest Hour
7. Is Lust The Answer

9. Voodoo Lullaby

 

Into The Fray - Orphans

 

Into the Fray Single with the original & the extentended edit of the song Orphans. Both versions are melancholic cold electrosongs with  desperate vocodervocals in the tradition of  good old Kraftwerk.

The GODS are Back !!!One of the greatest Depeche Mode-live performances ever recorded on film in 1993/1994, is finally available and re-mastered on DVD. The re-mastering of the image & the sound is done great, the image is very pure. With the Dolby Surround sound it’s like Depeche Mode is performing at your home. Closer then a real concert you can’t get at your home, unless Depeche Mode is really giving a private concert for you. On the original Devotional VHS tape from 1994 there were 2 tracks missing from the entire concert, which are now included on the Devotional DVD. There are also nice extra’s included in this DVD version. On the second disc you have the live projections, which were used on the background screens between the devotional tour concerts. Also on the second disc there are all the promotional videos from Songs of faith & devotion and the MTV Depeche Mode Rockumentary. This DVD is a MUST HAVE for all devoted DM-fans & people, who want to see DM performing one of there best concerts again

KASH Korpertriebe e.p.


Album of the Month Oktober, chosen by the Electrogeneration

 

Recently the powerful debut-release ( Korpertriebe e.p ) from the German electroband Kash  have appeared on the German label Brett Musik . This label is a division of Das Brennende Brett. I best define the music of Kash as a mix of gothic, dark wave, electrometal, EBM, very close to the style of other wellknown German Bands Oomph & Rammstein. Kash sing also in German. But Kash isn’t a copy of these bands, Kash have there own original sound, wich is also more electronic. There music sounds very professional. To tell you more about the Korpertriebe e.p., i can tell you that there is much hitpotential  in the songs. Most likely some of the highlights of this e.p. wil grow out as  high danceble electroclubhits, if Deejays give them enough airplay on there parties. Most of the songs & remixes are up-tempo tracks with a lot energy. One of the strongest debut-releases  i did listen to, this year. I’m watching out for there upcoming album : Herzflut! , wich will come out in november . KASH Rocks, To Be Continued Soon :-)

 3 Cold Men - 3 Cold Men ( 2004)

   


Album of the Month August, chosen by the Electrogeneration

  

For who thought that melancholic synthpop, new romantic or cold electro  is dead, is totally wrong .3 Cold Men  are the modern reincarnation of these styles, and they proof this music is still evolving  & enjoyable . There music reminds me to great new wavebands in the 1980 s, like: Ultravox, The Assembly, Visage, Depeche Mode, Clan of Xymox, Trisomie 21.

To make there music up to dated to the sound of nowadays  electro/wavescene , 3 Cold Men mix there wavy retro-sound with modern synthsounds. Which works perfect, this makes it all more danceable & and never monotone. You can t sit still on there songs, you have to dance on it. Many of there songs have a lot of hit-potential. Some of the highlights & possible electro/wavedancefloorhits  are the songs : 3Cold Men(one of my  favourite 3CM-songs), Don t pretend(with some Depeche Modelike percussion, bits &  lyric-structures), Change of life, X- fragile, Fade to Grey(cover from the Visage-new waveclubhit).

Kooper Kain - Turning cities to salt

I was very surprised about there sound, when i putted there lovely album in my cdplayer and listen to there cool & exiting songs. The entire album sounds very professional & original. Difficult to put a label on there sound, because there music is more or less a mixture of different styles. Like gothic, new wave, electro, rock, dark ambient, etc..... If i have to put a label on there music, i call it new century new wave. Because there music let me think back to some New Wavebands from the 80 s.There sound is close to the style of the Simple Minds in better times, only a lot darker with a new century feeling. I like that mood very much. They use cool synths & great guitars. There singer have a fine touching , quite unique voice, one that goes straight to the heart.Kooper Kain really ROCKS !!!! I can t find any weak song on there album, there are many highlights on there album. A few examples of these highlights are : :All That s Needed , Red Satin Rivers, Orchid, Moonlight Kiss, Too Far Gone, Icy Stars. These songs give me a deep impression, i recommend them to everyone who loves music with a deeper sense or music that really rocks.
