“Set Me Free”, taken from the current In Strict Confidence album “La Parade Monstrueuse”, is now being released as a 14-track EP-CD. The CD includes the videoclip of “Silver Bullets”, an 8:30 minutes extended version of the title-track, a piano interpretation, remixes of other artists of various songs. More details as they get release.
Formed in 1989/1990, they were known as Seal of Secrecy until 1992. They started out as a quartet, but stripped down to a duo (Dennis Ostermann and Joerg Schelte) in 1992, releasing two demos tapes on the way to their debut release “Cryogenix” on Zoth Ommog in 1996, shortly followed by the EP “Collapse”.
The band left the label after releasing the follow-up effort “Face The Fear” in 1998, releasing their third album “Love Kills!” on the very short lived Bloodline label two years later.
Side-Line Music Awards are now ready, each year Side-Line nominates the best songs, bands and acts in the electro, synth, EBM etc space and now the final results are here, as voted by the Side-Line readers. And it seems Recoil got a fair share of the prices
The results of the Side-Line Music Awards 2010 are in. Yes, it did take us a few days more than we had originally planned. But then again, we never imagined getting stuck in London and Brussels the past week due to the unexpected harsh winter conditions circling over Europe. We spent the last two days counting the votes and deleting the invalid ones. But before we give the results, we really want to thank all those readers who have cast their votes in the past two election rounds. You were among the 39,203 people (!!) to have cast a valid vote. That is an all-time record for Side-Line.
