Artoffact Records to re-issue collected works of Cyberaktif (feat. Skinny Puppy, FLA members)

Toronto-based Artoffact Records has announced that it will re-issue a deluxe double-CD edition of the collected works of Cyberaktif. This following an earlier vinyl edition that sold out in a matter of weeks. The deluxe, 18-track version of “Tenebrae Vision” is expanded to include all tracks from the Cyberaktif’s singles, as well as a bonus remix from Beatbox Inc.. The release is scheduled for September and is available for pre-order digitally on Bandcamp right here and on other platforms. Formed briefly in 1990, Cyberaktif was an experiment to see what would happen had Bill Leeb (of Front Line Assembly) continued as a member of Skinny Puppy. Leeb was joined by Skinny Puppy personnel Cevin Key and Dwayne Goettel on the recordings, which were released on the Wax Trax label. The album was released in 1991 following two singles, Nothing Stays and Temper. Two tracks on the Artoffact expanded edition feature Blixa Bargeld (Einsturzende Neubauten, Nick Cave).

Einstuerzende Neubauten releases ‘Grundstück’ for the first time on the commercial market in 2 formats: Vinyl + DVD / CD + DVD

With “Grundstück”, a real Einstuerzende Neubauten rarity is being released on the commercial market for the first time. Originally issued in 2005 as a small, limited edition, strictly intended only for registered band supporters, the much sought-after album is now officially available as a CD, and also for the first time ever as an LP, each including a DVD with previously unpublished film recordings of the project and an extensive booklet.

Back then the album was offered to supporters in two versions; one with just the audio CD and another version with the DVD containing material from the November 2004 “Grundstück” performance at the Palast der Republik in Berlin.

‘Click Interview’ with Maschine Brennt: ‘Kraftwerk Is Very Important For Maschine Brennt’

Behind Maschine Brennt is hiding Joacim Thenander. This Swedish musician has been involved with numerous bands and multiple music genres, but Cultivated Bimbo is without a shadow of a doubt the most famous name for all lovers of EBM and experimental electronics. Maschine Brennt has been set up around 1992 as a side-project to Cultivated Bimbo. And as Joacim explains ‘The main reason was to present music as if the machines had made it. In the beginning I used whole-tone scales and such, to remove the human feel and make it more mathematical. The rhythms were always hard-quantized and very seldom played on velocity sensitive keyboards or pads. The name Maschine Brennt is taken from a B-side of one of Falco’s singles’. Maschine Brennt released several singles during the past few years while the debut full length “The Hearing Aid” has been released during 2017. This is a great album appealing for all lovers of Kraftwerk-electronics’. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: You’re kind of ‘electro-veteran’ who has been involved with multiple bands and projects since the late 80s. What have been your greatest satisfactions as an artist since then? Joacim: Mainly I make music for my own pleasure. It […]
