Interview with Mortiis: All you ever wanted to know and then some more

  Since I first heard The Smell of Rain, shortly after which I saw Mortiis performing live, I have always been intrigued by his music and his image. I knew very little about him at that time, but what I discovered was even more intriguing. Mortiis came out of the black metal band, yet he sounded nothing like that.

X Marks The Pedwalk – “Secrets” album review

  The long-awaited Secrets album from the electronic music legends X Marks The Pedwalk is finally out. We were eager to hear their new material and see what they have for us in 2017. Over the years their sound evolved from ebm-oriented to more synth-pop coloured expression. And synth-pop is undoubtedly what we can hear on this release. They open with “Masterpiece”, a pulsating, dance-inviting synth-pop hit with Estefania’s leading vocal. The track’s catchy chorus…
