APOPTYGMA BERZERK (NO)
In 1989 Apoptygma Berzerk is born, collaboration between Stephan Groth and Jon Erik Martinsen. A demo was released, Victims of Mutilation, which was enough to get them signed to Norway's Tatra Records. In 1991, Tatra released Ashes to Ashes on limited vinyl and this became Apoptygma's debut 12' single. With only 500 vinyl copies, Ashes to Ashes is a rare collector's item.
By this time, Jon Martinsen left the band and Apoptygma became a one-man project. With the success of Ashes to Ashes behind him, in 1992 Stephan wrote three tracks for the legendary Norwegian sampler, Sex, Drugs, and E.B.M. and released his first EP, The 2nd Manifesto.
Apoptygma's debut album, Soli Deo Gloria, released in 1994, surpassed all expectations. As other -ebm bands turned to American rock for inspiration, Apoptygma presented a beautifully textured and carefully stated synthesis of electronica. Alternative Press hailed the band as embracing " one of the more refreshing aspects of the evolution of the genre...the rejoining of dark keyboard gothic with the hard edged electro dance sound."
Later in 1994, Stephan released a number of techno singles under the name TB-MOONchild and H20, and it was this work in techno that resulted in Apoptygma's second CD, 1996's 7, being graced with the more upbeat techno grooves that can be heard on the singles Love Never Dies and Non-Stop Violence. Both tracks intertwined spiraling dark electronica with a strong message of against war and anti-violence. Apoptygma was embraced world-wide by wide diverging scenes, from Goths to rave-kids, and these two singles helped pave the way for the new wave of electro. Apoptygma went on hiatus after 7, the result of Stephan being drafted to work in Norway's civil-service system for a mandatory 14-month tour of duty. However, Apoptygma struck back in '97 in style. The remixed version of Mourn from 7 was a major indie-hit and reached #3 in the German Alternative Chart. US interest in Apoptygma increased as Tatra worked on securing a US deal.North America was given the chance to sample the future of electronic dance music when Metropolis Records released Apopcalyptic Manifesto, Apoptygma's debut CD on the label. Apopcalyptic Manifesto compiled various singles as well as tracks from the Soli Deo Gloria CD. 7 was released in the fall of 1998, to coincide with Apoptygma's first US tour.
During the 1998 European tour, Apoptygma recorded all of the shows, and in early '99 released APBL98, a 10,000-copy limited edition live album. To complement the music, the album came with a media disk that featured tour films, interviews, videos and rarities, and was mixed with quotes from the tour itself. Stephan wanted something for those who had been unable to catch Apoptygma live or who wanted something to help re-live the experience.
In May 1999, Apoptygma returned to the studio and emerged with a highly successful dance floor EBM single, Eclipse. The following album, Welcome to Earth mixes synth-pop and trance in with their conventional 7 sound. It is no surprise that Welcome to Earth both debuts, and stays at No. 1 in the German Alternative Charts. The 'Welcome to Earth Tour' took Apoptygma to ecstatic crowds across both continents. To commemorate the highly successful tour, the band released APBL2000 on CD, video, and DVD in 2001. Apoptygma Berzerk returned to re-enforce their dominance in 2002 with Harmonizer, a BPM marvel. Thick, full electronic textures adhered to persuasive beats, which enabled one to lose themselves within Stephan Groth's lyrics and vocals. Electro, synth-pop, trance, and EBM sounds were melted and blended together to form a harmony unlike no other.
As Stephan Groth wrote in the back of Welcome to Earth, " this is the end of the first part - it is time to move on," a statement that rang true in 2004. Since the release of Harmonizer, the band began preparing material for their fifth studio release and released The Harmonizer DVD for the interim between releases. 2006 marked the unveiling of the new album in North America. The four year project, You And Me Againist The World, showcased the band's ever evolving ability to go from hard hitting dance floor smashers to top 40 radio hits. While still rooted in electronics with Apoptygma Berzerk's signature synth lines and Stephan Groth's easily discernable vocals, the new album welcomed early member Anders Odden back into the fold by exhibiting more guitar work than on the previous two releases. Shortly after the release of the album, the band will release the Black EP exclusive to North America.Metropolis Records was given the rights to release Apoptygma Berzerk's out of print debut album, Soli Deo Gloria, as a digital release in the fall of 2007.
In a flashback to their beginning, Apoptygma Bezerk released The Singles Collection as a limited edition in fall 2008. The Singles Collection was composed of all the tracks from all eight single releases on Tatra Records. Fleshed out bonus tracks and remixes from major artists like VNV Nation and Beborn Beton as well as being completely remastered, The Singles Collection is an exciting release for both ardent fans and newcomers alike
BLUME is an Italian band founded in 2008. Their unique sound blends thematic lyrics, massive beats and melancholy moods, with influences from contemporary Electronic music, New wave, Synthpop, Electronic rock and much more.
The band released their first works online in October of 2008 and quickly garnered attention from the media, critics, curious fans and most importantly music industry executives. In February of 2009 the band signed a record deal with the US label A Different Drum, which releases Rise From Grey, in January 2010. The debut album was distributed and released in the United States, Canada, Russia, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
Rise From Grey received excellent reviews and BLUME quickly became one of the most exciting newcomers in the Synthpop/Futurepop music scene. The first album achieved success from the press with several specialty magazines praising the band for their work, and from radio with several songs appearing in playlists on local and regional radio stations, across America, Italy, Germany and Eastern Europe.
The threesome has performed in some of the most prominent clubs and festivals throughout Europe and has shared the stage with some influential bands in the underground scene, including: COVENANT at Siddharta Club in Prato, KIRLIAN CAMERA at K17 in Berlin, VNV NATION and SHE WANTS REVENGE at Audiodrome in Turin, DE/VISION at P!PL Club in Moscow, SEABOUND at Purple Turtle in London and many more.
After the first European tour, the band signed a new recording contract with the cult label WTII Records (Wax Trax II). In September 2013 was released the second album Autumn Ruins.
SELL SYSTEM (IT)
I Sell System nascono nell'ottobre del 2007 dall'incontro di tre musicisti provenienti da esperienze musicali differenti ma con la passione comune per la musica Elettronica e per il Synt-Pop degli anni '80. L'immediato feeling dei tre permette la realizzazione dopo poco tempo del loro primo brano " Egocentricity" che subito denota la natura New Wave del gruppo, da questo punto in poi il susseguirsi di nuovi brani è rapidissimo fino ad averne una dozzina dopo pochi mesi variando dal Tecno-Pop tedesco all'Elettronica.
La collaborazione è fitta, Davide ( D@X ) si occupa della sezione ritmica, con l'utilizzo di alcuni software e sintetizzatori crea grooves di batteria densi e sinuosi tipici del gruppo, Simone ( Symon ) è l'autore dei testi caratteristici per la loro impronta intimista e a volte oscura infine Enrico ( Rikux ) compone gli arrangiamenti e le linee melodiche sfruttando la sua conoscenza nella composizione acquisita nelle sue passate esperienze musicali. Dopo circa otto mesi di lavoro in studio i Sell System escono allo scoperto iniziando a proporre i loro brani al pubblico torinese suscitando interesse per il genere unico e per le sonorità avvolgenti, aumentando ad ogni data il loro seguito di appassionati.
Nasce così nel 2009 il loro primo album intitolato RED ROOM, undici tracce di elettronica purissima distribuito in tutto il Mondo dalle principali etichette di distribuzione (Out of Line, A different drum, Itunes e molti altri...) e recensito su molte riviste del settore con ottime critiche.
Con esso inoltre aumentano i lives che li portano in diverse città italiane a proporre la loro musica e il loro sound. I Sell System collaborano inoltre come gruppo di supporto con le maggiori band internazionali del loro genere, i Levinhurst (ex The Cure) i Covenant, I Babylonia e molti altri... All'inizio del 2011 la band termina il lavoro in studio del secondo album intitolato OUR L.A.N.D. che denota subito l'evoluzione creativa e la maturità nei suoni e negli arrangiamenti, dieci tracce di una nuova elettronica " granitica" e ricca di emozioni.
