Alpha Point High Like the Angels £14.25
Review
Moldavian Electro band ALPHA POINT were able to win over both the readers and jury of Sonic Seducer magazine as well as the entire A&R department of Out Of Line Music with the highly catchy mix of futurepop, trance and light industrial influences in their song "High Like the Angels" which consequently won them first place at the magazine's the Battle Of The Band contest. Now, the group's eagerly anticipated debut album is complete, fittingly titled after the song that won them the contest, and ALPHA POINT have not only kept to the high standard of their first offering, they have surpassed it. After many protagonists of the futurepop have moved on to other styles, the Moldavian band celebrate the genre in its purest form, without falling into the trap of sounding like a carbon copy of the days of yore. "High Like the Angels" sounds big, modern and addictive: intelligent club tunes that will work in and outside of the disco!

Assemblage 23 Bruise £14.00
Review
The recordings for ASSEMBLAGE 23's seventh regular full-length album, "Bruise", were completed in late February. The album will be released in June and will be available in both a regular and limited edition version. The originally announced "The Noise Inside My Head EP" will not be released as planned as singles have now become a sort of 'dead' format... Instead all the remixes recorded for the planned EP have been included in the limited edition of "Bruise". According to Tom Sheer in his own words: "'Bruise' is coming along very nicely and I'm really happy with how it's coming out. I think the songs are some of the catchiest ones I've done with a lot of emphasis on melody. Style-wise, it is sort of an interesting combination of retro and futuristic influences."

Chrom Synthetic Movement £14.25
Review
"Synthetic Movement" – the title of German group CHROM's new long player is quite programmatic. Thudding beats and bass-laden sequencers are combined with recognizable melodies, driven by the charismatic voice of singer Christian Marquis, resulting in highly club-compatible futurepop anthems. CHROM's approach is harder and more 'in your face' than your average synthpop outfit and provides just the right kick for people that prefer anthemic tunes with a focus on dance music. The lads also have a golden touch for powerful songs with hit potential that stand up well against some of the genre's absolute classics (rather fittingly, if unintentionally, the group's name brings to mind one of these classic club tunes). It is rare that the fusion of electronica, club and pop works as well as on "Synthetic Movement" - an album to imbibe, dance to and get carried away with. Join the movement!

Escape With Romeo Samsara £15.00
Review
"Samsara" is the brand new album of one of Germany's longest living darkwave band. The band was founded in 1989 by guitarist and singer Thomas Elbern after leaving legendary German act PINK TURNS BLUE. EWR have released nine regular albums, several EPs, two 'Best Of' compilations and a DVD during their career to date. This album is the first new material after a hiatus of two years and features fourteen new tracks. This CD marks a sort of new beginning for the band: for the first time ever, the album also features German lyrics (on a few tracks) and the sound on "Samsara" has turned more elecronic than before. Still, ESCAPE WITH ROMEO remain true to their very own and personal style of 80s infused darkwave and promise to satisfy the high expectations for "Samsara" from their countless fans!

Freakangel Let It All End £13.00
Review
Estonian alternative industrial project FREAKANGEL return with the explicit new album "Let It All End". Constructed around destructive emotions as the main theme, "Let It All End" is by far FREAKANGEL's hardest hitting work ever! The ultimate symbiosis of D. Darling and Art's respective songwriting approaches here assures an impressively heavy and intricate sound. An intimate masterpiece full of raw, violent uncompromising emotions. This album is nothing but their own battlefield and they just declared war on your ears... "Parasites" are crawling your way and erasing the distance step by step! Once again mixed and engineered by Jan L. (X-FUSION Music Production), this album also benefits from the guest vocal appearance of PSY'AVIAH's female lead singer Emelie Nicolai on songs like "Mutual Forms of Bleeding" and "Porcelain Doll". According to D. Darling "Let It All End" is about "being unable to resist all the wickedness of life, even knowing that the word 'hate' has more power than the feeling of love... but all you can do is only laugh out loud about it!"

Public Image Ltd One Drop EP £8.00
Review
PUBLIC IMAGE LTD confirm their first new material in twenty years, beginning with the EP "One Drop" released for 'Record Store Day' on April 21st. The 4 track EP is taken from the forthcoming album "This Is PiL" and all the new material has been recorded in the UK last year at Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds. PiL were recently confirmed as special guests at BBC Radio 6 birthday celebrations. With their show at The Brighton Concorde on August 16th sold out, a second date has been added at the venue on August 15th. Lead track "One Drop" from the EP was given an exclusive airing by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6 show last week. John Lydon describes the track as "a reflection of where I grew up in Finsbury Park, London. The area that shaped me, and influenced me culturally and musically, a place I will forever feel connected to. But within this I am also saying it doesn't matter where you come from, we all go through the same emotions especially the disenchanted youth of today, yesterday and the future. Bearing in mind the Olympics are in London this year and who knows what that could bring for London and our country..."

Rome Nos Chants Perdus [Re-Issue] £14.75
Review
On their 2010 release "Nos Chants Perdus", ROME assiduously developed their sound further in the direction of minimalistic, simple, singer-songwriter material, slowly leaving the apocalyptic realms behind them. Catchy melodies, which breathe the timeless atmosphere of the metropolis on the Seine, impress themselves on the memory. The sonorous voice bears the weltschmerz as well as the yearning for freedom and peace. Apart from the French song titles the lyrics are primarily performed in English, while the music is constructed primarily with acoustic instruments: piano, guitar, touches of strings, accordion. "Nos Chants Perdus" by ROME is an exceptional and valuable example of the art of singer-songwriting, the likes of which haven't been heard in this concentration and with such gravity for a long time.

Schwarzblut Maschinenwesen £13.00
Review
Founded in 2007, SCHWARZBLUT are a five-piece band from the Netherlands that blend romantic melancholic Weimar poetry with danceable, dark electronic music. On their second full-length album "Maschinenwesen", they pay a tribute to German poetry from the era of industrial revolution - a time in which some could explore and progress, whilst others suffered exploitation, misfortune and disease. As always, SCHWARZBLUT use historical poetry by a variety of writers, taken from the band's very own collection of centuries-old books. In thirteen tracks the band paint a picture with romantic, melancholic, yet also grim touches. As all poems have their own character, so do the songs that make up "Maschinenwesen". Going from EBM dancefloor killers such as "An den Todesengel", "Schlusspoetik" and "Ein Schatten2 to atmospheric electro tracks like "Einst" and "Der Schwere Abend". The track "Die Fabrik" is a massive machine-ridden song that leads you right into an 18th century steel factory, whereas the triptych "Gesang der Geister über den Wassern" is a classical avant-garde masterpiece, featuring several guest vocalists and film score-like orchestrations. For the beautifully haunting track "Nomen Est Omen" the band went to a special studio to record the choral parts that give this track its grandeur. SCHWARZBLUT reinforce their eclectic style diversity that accentuates a beautiful duality between male and female vocalists. They surprise us more than ever by mixing pounding electro rhythms, harmonic choirs, distorted vocals, cutting leads, grandiloquent orchestras, dark romanticism and German lyrical poetry. To visualize the concept of "Maschinenwesen" SCHWARZBLUT teamed up with steampunk designer Rosanna Hoogendoorn, known for her shows at the Summer Darkness festival and Cyberia parties. Throughout the sixteen-page artwork, you can feast your eyes on the work of Ms Hoogendoorn and photographer Frank Wiersema.

Stray Letting Go £13.00
Review
Whether as UNTER NULL or STRAY, American artist Erica Dunham always stays faithful to the "quality over quantity" motto. She always takes a great deal of pride, attention, care and patience in her work, never leaving any detail incomplete. And so, four years after the release of the debut album "Abuse By Proxy", it's time for STRAY to let it all go... "Letting Go" is a lot darker in content, confirming to us that this was neither meant to be a 'light' project, nor was it meant to be 'happy' just because Erica's main band UNTER NULL is actually quite angry and pissed off. STRAY kind of reflects the feelings of despair and sadness that are experienced when that anger wears off. This album is actually quite a departure from any of her previous works, it's a lot more polished and full of layered and lush-sounding tracks. Emotional piano tunes echo with melodic electronic sequences and get accelerated by pulsing beats and vibrating bass lines led by Erica's poignant, half-sung, half-spoken vocals. The material is melancholy, bittersweet, and a lot of yearning, needing, wanting, and desiring is involved. It's about feeling disconnected from the rest of the world, from society, from your peers, from your friends, from your loved ones and your family. A track like "Out of Place" kind of sums up that feeling quite well in so many words. Other tracks, such as "No Vacancy" and "Let Me Go", are sincere with the idea of not understanding peoples' actions and words, and feeling frustrated without necessary closure. Also notable are the exciting remake of UNTER NULL's "Failure Epiphany" and an open reinterpretation of THE FLASHBULB's "Passage D"...

Suicide Inside Homicide £13.00
Review
SUICIDE INSIDE is the project of Natasha and Alexey Protasov, both well-known on the electro scene for their muscled AMBASSADOR21 project. With three full-length albums under their belt and multiple concerts across Europe, the duo now present their new studio album on their new label Alfa Matrix. On "Homicide", SUICIDE INSIDE reveal more power than ever before, trigger extreme emotions and expand their endless lust for life. The album showcases a sort of uncensored vision of love as a mechanism of life and death. Love as a provocation. Love as a way to disrupt personal dogmas and get out of societal control. Musically, SUICIDE INSIDE stand for an eclectic blend of aggressive electronic music and furious industrial rock, with heavy breakbeats, rhythmic noise and Natasha's razor-sharp provocative female vocals. An exploding cocktail of acid house-styled synths, distorted bass lines, dramatic sound effects and loud powerful vox. Hard, oppressive and chaotic, SUICIDE INSIDE's new album "Homicide" will blow you away with its uncompromising sonic force and revolting provocative feminity. "Do not forget your razor, baby!"

Various Artists More Than Nine Lives £12.75
Review
"More Than Nine Lives", the second release from Industry 8, is a specially priced two-disc compilation. All profits from this release are to benefit PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Wellness Society), the only no-kill shelter in Philadelphia. Curated by Dean Troxell and Joe Scott, the dark music experts from Philadelphia's Digital Ferret Music Store, the compilation is a showcase of some of the most exciting artists in post punk, minimal wave, experimental, rhythmic noise and death rock. The 36 tracks spanning the two discs bring partly exclusive tracks from established genre leaders like darkwave icons BLACK TAPE FOR A BLUE GIRL, THE FROZEN AUTUMN, MONICA RICHARDS, THE SPIRITUAL BAT, to more 'industrial'-based projects such as SYNAPSCAPE, 100BLUMEN, ACCESS TO ARASAKA, TOTAKEKE and artists who make their CD debut such as the experimental BLOOD RHYTHM. Ambitious in its selection and scope, but unified in theme and vitality, "More Than Nine Lives" is a glimpse at what is at the forefront of the dark music genres in 2012. Whether you enjoy this compilation for the music or the cause, remember it's limited to 500 copies and has undeniably endearing cover artwork from Mike Wohlberg. More info about PAWS can be found here: www.phillypaws.org Packaged in a 19.5 x 14 cm deluxe four-panel eco-folder.

NEW SOUNDCLIPS
Alter Der Ruine Son of a Bitch £18.25
Review
ALTER DER RUINE's fourth release "Son of a Bitch" will prove to be raw, powerful and unforgettable with a few surprises along the ride, ending in a noise-grinding, beat-pounding sonic halt. The trio continue to evolve and develop, opening new doors and kicking them down when needed, especially if a door is stubborn or weather-warped. They are not of the shy persuasion, be it on stage or in their remixes, consciously choosing not to repeat themselves, but to expand like a swelled gut over a cinched waist-belt. Their eyes are always on the horizon, chasing a sun they will never let fall.

Formalin Wasteland Manifesto £14.50
Review
2012... the year of the apocalypse. Quite a few people believe that ancient Mayan prophecies point toward the end of the world being near. Berlin's shooting stars FORMALIN have created an album that fits hand in glove. "Wasteland Manifesto" conjures up a dark, aggressive, and highly emotional scenario for a planet that has been hit with the biggest possible catastrophe. Taking the classic industrial sound of the late 80s and early 90s and spicing it up with modern beats, gigantic mountains of electronica and an all-permeating atmosphere of doom, the duo catapult the listener into the barren, dilapidated and deeply misanthropic world of the Wasteland. Instead of just riding the wave of their highly successful debut, FORMALIN have succeeded in further developing their sound with impressive results and prove that they are so much more than a 'one album wonder'. Welcome to the Wasteland. The first limited edition of this title comes in a digipak with a bonus MCD.

Matt Howden Robot World OST £7.50
Review
"Robot World" is a non-verbal documentary movie by German film director Martin Hans Schmitt. The soundtrack is best described as neo-classical in style; it is music to sink into and drift away with. The music is scored with strings, loops, piano, and bass. Just over 50 minutes of music of sheet beauty! "The wind whispers through the curtains on a clear and starry night, you sit in your chair with a bottle of fine red wine next to you. As you idly toy with the stem of your glass, MATT HOWDEN uncorks his latest and lets it permeate the silent ether. Your lips draw up into a wry and knowing smirk. Once again, Mr Howden does what so many others fail at: he orchestrates the emotional response of his listeners with a faultless ease. Effortlessly he casts his deft spell of violin, bass, effects, piano, strings and even the occasional drum pattern over the surroundings. It's a rare gift, indeed, to do what Howden does. He is able to capture feelings with his equipment and his arrangements border on the superlatively divine (...) his interests are varied, his music unquestionably unique... don't pass this one up, it is an unflinchingly daring masterpiece!"

Rabia Sorda The Art of Killing Silence £14.00
Review
On both albums that he has released with his solo project RABIA SORDA to date, HOCICO frontman Erk Aicrag has impressed with an incredibly addictive, melodic and aggressive mix of electroclash, punk, new wave and pure energy. "Métodos Del Caos" and "Noise Diary" juxtaposed the furious Mexican shouter's unbridled emotional anger with catchy melodies, versatile song structures and an honest, organic sound. Both of these deleted and sold-out gems are now being re-released as "The Art Of Killing Silence", sporting remastered sound, an array of bonus tracks and B-Sides, plus an exclusive new artwork, all at the price tag of a regular album. The perfect introduction to the wild, electronic world of Erk Aicrag and a must-own for fans of energized alternative sounds!

Sieben No Less Than All £10.00
Review
This is an album of vast emotional temperature. Cold, hard, cynical. Searing hot and impassioned. This new work from Matt Howden delivers everything you want from that SIEBEN sound. And more. There's a new edginess to "No Less Than All". It has the raw anger of "Hellfires", the ritual-hypnotic beauty of "Ogham Inside the Night", but it is fiercely new. Truly, that passion and intensity of a live SIEBEN show come across more than ever here. A future classic that will propel SIEBEN into new territories.

VCMG (Vince Clarke & Martin Gore) SSSS £14.00
Review
"SSSS", the debut album release from VCMG, is one of 2012's most anticipated musical collaborations. How could anything be more so than the coming together two of the original founders of DEPECHE MODE? It marks the long-awaited reunion of electronic pioneers Vince Clarke (ERASURE/YAZOO/DEPECHE MODE) and Martin L. Gore (DEPECHE MODE), who have joined forces for the first time in over thirty years to craft an album, demonstrating their mutual love of electronic music. After initially tentative discussions, plus a meeting at the "Short Circuit presents Mute festival" in London (where they both performed), these two influential musicians and songwriters began work on the ten-track album, working in a typically unique way. Essentially the pair worked alone in their respective studios, communicating only via email, exchanging files until the albums was ready. The album includes the recent 12" "EP1/Spock", described by The Quietus as "one of the best tracks of 2011", plus the forthcoming "EP2/Single Blip". The album was produced by Vince Clarke and Martin L. Gore and mixed by the influential Californian electronic artist Überzone/Q.
