KMFDM Interview: Sascha Konietzko talks about “Paradise”

  KMFDM is a name every industrial music fan will recognize easily. Since their inception in 1984, they’ve been one of the trailblazers of the genre, giving fans new twists and refreshing takes on industrial while also giving them the heavy, loud beats they know and love. With a revolving door of collaborators and a lineup in constant evolution, KMFDM is a great example of both how flexible industrial music can be, and how a…

A Projection “Section” – album review

A Projection “Section” – album review

  Swedish Post-punk A Projection have returned with their new album ‘Section’. Being firmly in the post punk genre, it’s very hard for any band in this world to escape their influences. Which is basically one band that rhymes with Boy Division. But bringing that band up is lazy journalism. It’s like mentioning Metallica in a review of a thrash album. ‘Section’ is a well crafted album. Well written songs, plain and simple. There’s no…

Golden Apes “Kasbek” – album review

  I don’t just enjoy discovering artists that I have never heard of before, but learning and understanding their styles and messages are just as important. When I was given the album ‘Kasbek’ by Golden Apes to listen to, I did not know what to expect or hear. It was the vocals of Peer Lebrecht that pricked up my ears. I really don’t like to compare an artist by saying he sounds like this artist…

Numb “Mortal Geometry” – album review

  A well-known name in the electro-industrial scene from the mid-80s until the end of the 90s, Numb had essentially disappeared since 1998, after founder and frontman Don Gordon’s move from his hometown of Vancouver and presumed retirement from the music scene. This year, after two decades of silence, we celebrate Numb’s return with their newest release Mortal Geometry, freshly released on August 23rd. From the first few seconds, it becomes evident that Numb’s dark…

The Legendary Pink Dots “Angel In The Detail” – album review

The Legendary Pink Dots “Angel In The Detail” – album review

  The Legendary Pink Dots has thrived far outside the mainstream since the 80’s. Having released more than 40 albums, their latest offering ‘Angel in The Detail’ is a bold and ambitious work. Two years in the making, it is a complex and layered album. Drawing on a plethora of sounds, textures and ideas. Hovering somewhere between Underworld, The Young Gods and Pink Floyd, ‘Angel in The Detail’ warrants multiple listens to even scratch the…

Empirion “Resume” – album review

Empirion “Resume” – album review

  23 years after their last (and only) full length release, Empirion have returned with ‘Resume’. Their 1996 debut ‘Advanced Technology’ yielded a substantial fanbase and a certain amount of crossover appeal. They supported the Prodigy on a European tour and played across the world before touring America in 1997 as a part of a Megadog Big Top Tour alongside the likes of Moby, 808 State and BT. And it was actually a Megadog reunion…

Alk-a-line “Species & Specimens“ – album review

  I really enjoy hearing something different, therefore this album was very refreshing; these guys know being different is going to get you noticed. They have adapted sounds and made things sound odd to achieve this in a really good way. This twenty-eight minute, compact album has a ‘human’ theme throughout and ‘Homo Sapiens’, that first track I already mentioned, has a ‘Shakespears Sister’ tinge. Maybe it’s the female vocalists, but I don’t get the…
