Get those synths going: Dekad – New Religion

June 27, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Nice new synth/EBM video from Dekad

Dekad presents a new single taken from the Monophonic album: New Religion. The single contains two versions of New Religion, a remix of Don’t Try by Neutral Lies and a previously unreleased track ‘Ordinary Love’ taken from the Monophonic recording sessions…A new video accompanies this digital single release.

About the band:

Dekad was formed in 2000, at the time the band was composed of 4 people with similar influences (new wave, punk rock, electro pop, EBM, goth.) The lineup was made of JB, Seb, Yoyo and Manu: 2 guys with cheap keyboards, a singer and a guitar player. Dekad started playing live but soon realized that they could do things differently and JB decided to transpose the live demos on his computer which led to a total re-organization. Things became more serious and live sessions slowly left place to home studio sessions, and the band quickly turned to a trio. In 2003, Dekad sent a demo to BOREDOMproduct including the track ‘Tell Me’ that would be released in the “Synthetique” compilation. This was the start of a new collaboration: the next year JB and Member U-0176 from Celluloide started working on Dekad’s debut album “Sin_Lab”, based on the demos of the band. Sin_Lab was finally released in 2005, with a new version of “Tell Me”, and other tracks such as “Dare” and “Club Devil”. The album was very well received by the fans but got limited media coverage.

The trio returned in studio in 2006 to record their second album “Confidential Tears”. From the sound of the first single “Dive” it was clear that Dekad was evolving and its music was now more solid and focused. The album was once again very well received amongst the fans of electronic pop, and gathered more interest in the media. After participating to the second BOREDOMproduct compilation “Auto-Reverse” in 2007, the band went into hiatus as it became harder for its member to find the time to compose together. In the meantime JB frequently joined Foretaste on stage as second keyboard player, and kept on writing new songs on his own.

As a new album fully took shape, JB decided in 2009 to reactivate Dekad, even as a solo act…Thirteen new tracks have been composed and recorded in the last few months. As always, member u-0176 produces this new album with JB. Its name is in line with the new lineup of the ‘band’: “Monophonic”. The debut single, “So Sorry” is an emotional duet with Foretaste’s singer.

Depressive Disorder release video prior to new EP

May 29, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

The brand new video and single from the Czech electro act Depressive Disorder. The new song is accompanied by the pictures taken from the upcoming live DVD.

The new EP will be released on May 30th on Czech Monpolrecords label in limited edition. The edited visual footage to the video was shot at the beginning of May at the gig in Brno where the whole concert was professionally recorded and will be released this autumn as the first official live DVD of Depressive Disorder.

Depressive Disorder have been around for ten years now. They have released 4 LPs, including the great “Chronicle of Fear” album in 2009. They are the only current dark electro band from the Czech Republic that can be heard on gigs and releases abroad.

At the end of 2009 the band experienced a personal earthquake when one of the founding members (and actually a half of the band) Radim Cap (keys, programming, production) left the project. However, the remaining member Patrik Lev (vocal, lyrics, programming) decided not to let the band die and put together a whole new lineup consisted of VeNa (keyboards, programming, pads), head of the now suspended EBM classic No Name Desire from Prague, and Ez on guitar. After several successful gigs e.g. with Rabia Sorda, In Strict Confidence or KMFDM, attracted by the fresh feel and drive of the band, Radim decided to join Depressive Disorder again.

May 17, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

The new VNV Nation album “Automatic” will be released in September. The album has been in production for a while now as many Side-Line readers know by now. But it’s official now, so no reason to fear for a delay. The band will be premiering some of the new songs at their show at the Nordstern Festival in Hamburg in July and snippets and previews will be posted online over the Summer.

The ‘Automatic’ tour 2011-2012 will kick off in September 6th in Germany. The special guest on the tour will be Straftanz. Says the band: “This is a band who put on a great live show and are the right kind of people to be stuck in a bus for 4 weeks with when you have a voucher for therapist sessions that you need to use.”
