Year: 2016

Rome – The Hyperion Machine


The literary and philosophical subjects are just as diverse as the musical influences. The album features songs in the vein of Rome’s trademark blends of Dark Folk ‘The Secret Germany’, ‘Celine in Jerusalem’ and Post Industrial Wave ‘Transference’, ‘Skirmishes for Diotima’.
Moreover, fans will be delighted to find that the album also features a duet ‘Stillwell’ with legendary Swedish singer and friend Thåström.
In many ways, ‘The Hyperion Machine’ is a completely normal music album, and yet it is so much more than that. It forms a great, sensual commentary on the origins of the present, over and above the here and now.

‘Das Lied der Deutschen’ – a 200 old year song banned by political correctness – finally re-released in its entirety by Sacha Korn – an interview

Released now for the very first time on digital platforms is “Das Lied der Deutschen” in a version by Sacha Korn. The song – having all of the strophes – reached the download and streaming platforms last weekend and is an excellent contemporary cover. We talked with Sacha Korn on why he re-released the single, his version originally was self-released in 2012 selling over 15.000 copies (!). The song itself has been the national anthem of Germany since 1922, except in East Germany, whose anthem was “Auferstanden aus Ruinen” from 1949 to 1990. But since World War II and the fall of Nazi Germany, only the third stanza has been used as the national anthem because the other strophes ‘could be misinterpreted’. The music was originally written by Austrian composer Joseph Haydn in 1797, using a tune from a Croat peasant song and on a text beginning with “Gott erhalte Franz, den Kaiser”. In 1841, the German linguist and poet August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben wrote the lyrics of “Das Lied der Deutschen” as a new text for that music, counterposing the national unification of Germany to the eulogy of a monarch, lyrics that were considered revolutionary at the time.

The 19th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the Russian dark wave act Distorted World featuring harsh male and clean female vocals.
