Russian harsh EBM act Invisible Devastation return with brand new single: ‘Suicide March’

Out now is “Suicide March”, a brand new single by the Russian harsh EBM band Invisible Devastation which we have covered already a few times here in Side-Line. “Suicide March” is a follow-up to the band’s previously released singles, “Prophecy” and “Chernoyarsk”, taken off their upcoming second album which will be released on the fine SkyQode label. Expect stomping beats, hard grooves and harsh vocals. In addition to the title track, which should do pretty well in the industrial club scene playlists, the release also features a special mix of the “Mother Of Heroin” from their debut album as well as a rather exquisite remix by the Russian dark electro act Noise Resistance and last but not least, the instrumental version of the title track. Invisible Devastation was formed back in 2009 by two members of Mechanical Apfelsine, one of Russia’s most famous synthpop bands. In 2015, they released their debut album “The 13th Apostle” which got a lot of positive feedback from fans and DJs worldwide. After releasing a follow-up EP in 2016, the duo went on a prolonged hiatus, only to return with new music in 2020. You can check out the release right below on Bandcamp or […]

Pole returns with new 2-track 12 inch on Mute records in August – check out the first track already

(Photo by Ben de Biel) Pole (aka Stefan Betke) has shared “Rost”, a brand new track and the first to be shared from “Tanzboden”, a 2-track 12” due out on Mute on 13 August 2021 on vinyl and digitally. The new track originates from a series of loops created during the recording sessions for his first new album for Mute in over 15 years, “Fading”, which was released in November 2020. Fading was about loss of memory and how memory disappears over the years as we grow older, and these loops were discovered when Betke had returned to the original recordings. He explains: “I began working in my Berlin Studio, doing research and listening to the single recording sessions of Fading to remember what I did exactly and to find out what I think about the recording months after finishing it. Tanzboden is an old fashioned word for a dancefloor constructed during the harvest time, mostly outdoors, and Rost is the German word for rust which is an interesting connection to Tanzboden. If the dancefloor is not really used for a long time anymore it starts to rust, and as the screws and metal plates which are holding the wooden […]

Italian shoegaze / post-punk act Sorry, Heels return with 2nd album ‘She’, 6 years after their debut album

The Italian shoegaze / post-punk act Sorry, Heels is back with an all new album, their second after two self-produced Eps (“Wasted” released in 2013 and “Distances” released in 2014) and their debut album “The Accuracy of Silence” which was released on the Finnish label Gothic Music in 2015. With “She” (out on Shades of Sound Records / Wave Records) we also see a change in line-up which also altered the band’s sounds drastically. Gone are the rock standards, instead the band has embraced electronic music, while maintaining references and sounds linked to new wave and early post-punk. The band was formed in Frosinone (Italy) in 2010 by former Chants of Maldoror members David M. and Fabiano Gagliano (a/k/a Loren) augmented with Simona Pietrucci. Check out “She burns” below.

‘Click Interview’ with Dimitri Berzerk: ‘The Strange Journey Of Consciousness That Seeks The Transmutation Of Darkness Into Light’

Dimitri Loyo better known as Dimitri Berzerk is a Mexican DJ, producer, remixer and label owner. His artist name ‘Berzerk’ is inspired by various sources. Some of you maybe remember that Atari video game with the same name, which was particularly important to the artist as it was his first experience with vocoders in a video game. So Dimitri seeks to express the influence of the Retro-Pop culture within his music. But his artist name is also a wink to Apoptygma Berzerk, which is a band Dimitri particularly like. After numerous remixes for other artists, Dimitri Berzerk started releasing his own music. Three EP’s have been released thus far on his own label Sector Industrial Producciones. The songs clearly reflect the above mentioned influences and  are worthy of examination. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: You are active as a DJ, producer and remixer, artist, record label owner… but how did you get in touch with Electronic music? Can you tell us something more briefly about all your activities? Dimitri: I’ve always been in love with music and in one way or another throughout my life I have sought to get involved with it. Everything started to flow better since […]
