New Fear Factory album out!

June 18th, 2021 (Nuklear Blast)

Fear Factory is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1989. Throughout the band's career, they have released ten full-length albums and have evolved through a succession of sounds, all in their main style of groove metal and industrial metal. Fear Factory was enormously influential on the heavy metal scene in the mid-to-late 1990s.

Fear Factory records are cinematic in scope; sonic landscapes, echoing the dystopian post-apocalyptic futures found in classic sci-fi literature and films, from Ray Bradbury to Blade Runner. 'Aggression Continuum', the tenth studio album, is the culmination of three decades of unforgettable songs, performances, and forward-thinking storytelling concepts, while simultaneously rebooting Fear Factory onto a brilliant and excitingly unpredictable new path. Like the liquid metal T-1000 in the Terminator franchise or the Academy-Award winning reboot of Mad Max, 'Aggression Continuum' is a turning point where what “was” transforms into what will be. It’s Fear Factory’s own Fury Road.

'Aggression Continuum' is 

No. 2 Current Hard Music (Metal)

No. 5 Current Rock Albums

No. 5 Current Independent

No. 15 Billboard Top Albums

No. 17 Internet Albums

Out: 'Golden Sun' by Trentemøller

'Golden Sun/Shaded Moon', Trentemøller's first release since 2019's 'Obverse' LP, finds him returning to instrumental compositions. It's the newest entry into an ongoing journal of compiled musical case studies exploring suspense and resolution.

As 'Golden Sun' rises, we can feel the dew burn off, and our bodies become bathed in warmth. New themes hatch and rise, gravitating towards the song’s leitmotif. Pitches bend, morph, and we recall treasured days, lying somnambulant on a knoll, draped in beams of sunlight, intoxicated both naturally and chemically. As the song sets our eyelids finally succumb to the weight of sleep, and we dream of a collapsing star.

'Shaded Moon' begins with a sequence of percussive bursts into the great wide yonder, while charged musical particles slowly assemble into an auricular borealis. The peak arrives as if to provide a score for the macrocosm reverting to its ostensible state of chaos, after a brief moment of order. It resolves with layers of pulsating synths, signaling the retreat of perigean tides.

Tobias Freund: 'Reel To Reel'

Tobias Freund's 'Reel to Reel' Tape Loop Project was funded by Musikfonds (Berlin) Stipendium.

All tracks were recorded using two Revox A77 tape decks.

The record head on the first Revox tape deck was routed to the playback head on the second deck, which then ran back to the first deck. The result of this constant recording and playing was a delay loop, the length of which (usually 3-6 seconds), depended on the distance between the tape decks.

This tape looping method was invented by Brian Eno and popularised by Robert Fripp known as Frippertronics in 1972. He used different audio sources and experimented with synthetic and acoustic sounds.

This is a selection out of 5h material recorded between January and April 2021, released May 20th via Eclectic Effigies.

New single by The Esprits is just out!

With 'Fucked Up', the beat band The Esprits once again shows what the band stands for: attention to detail, dedication, and solidarity.

The close observer finds a gang that is difficult to describe one-dimensionally. What becomes clear, however, is the passion for art – holistically. Directed to all who do not want to give up the romantic ideal of a real band.

'Fucked Up' expresses an energy that emphasizes the anticipation of what is to come.

Those who join now can look forward to an exciting journey!

Haiyti - Legend In The Making!

Hardest working, but also one of the most interesting German artists of our time - trap or pop, gangster or girlie - Haiyti delivers!

Now she teamed up, with one of our most recent signings for 'Robbery Is Back' - Chrome artist Sosa!

'Robbery Is Back' is the first track after the intro and was composed and produced by Haiyti & Sosa out of a session, a dirty and rough trap beat supporting story and vibe of the song.

Sosa teamed up with us and our partners from JESUS IS WAITING in early 2021.

Born in Berlin, to Ghanaian parents, Sosa benefited from multicultural music influences.

He explored the rhythms of West Africa and Central Europe as a teenage drummer and perfected his unique style of blending them as a DJ. As a producer, Sosa is an experimental alchemist capable of translating the pulse of night-life culture into captivating music. He is currently working on his originals.

Haiyti 2018 received the ECHO in the category 'National Critics' Prize'. DER SPIEGEL described their album 'Sui Sui' as "one of the greatest German rap-pop albums of recent years“. She was rewarded by the German this year's 'Deutscher Musikautorenpreis' for best lyrics in hip-hop and was awarded by German collecting society GEMA. Haiyti recently released her first album of the year - 'Mieses Leben'.
