‘Click Interview’ with Lederman / De Meyer: ‘A Fun And Easy-Going Process’

Lederman / De Meyer maybe doesn’t sound as the most ‘sexy’ band name, but when you realize this ‘new’ group features two pioneers from the EBM movement, you only, but can curious what those Belgian artists have achieved. The album “Eleven Grinding Songs” (released on Alfa Matrix) gives us the answer: a somewhat self-willed electronic sound mixing traditional EBM elements together with experimental- and more dark-pop orientated influences. It first of all is an open-minded and creative electronic work, on which both artists seem to have got a lot of fun. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: You guys have been involved with numerous bands/projects so how did you get the idea to join hands and what did you try to exorcize you maybe never haven’t done before? Jean-Marc: It actually started with an English label wanting to do a Fad Gadget covers album. They contacted me and I thought I should try this. I thought about a singer and it seemed to me Jean-Luc De Meyer would be great at that. We tried, had fun, went along and did more tracks… Q: How was it working together and did you establish some guidelines lines regarding sounds, influences etc before […]

Cult electronic project Benestrophe sees rare & unreleased material from 1987​-​1997 released on Bandcamp

For those who don’t know, Benestrophe is the first electronic music project that the Dassing brothers created together with vocalist Richard Mendez. They later created Mentallo & The Fixer and worked as a duo. The brand new digital only release “Turner’s All Night Drugstore (rare & unreleased 1987​-​1997)” features Benestrophe material Gary Dassing found in a box full of old cassettes and DATs tapes while working on the remastering of the complete back-catalogue by Mentallo & The Fixer. After compiling the mostly unreleased material off these good old master tape treasures he approached Alfa Matrix to release the material which spans the periode between 1987 and 1997. The release holds 13 tracks, which can now be downloaded via Bandcamp with other digital platforms following in the next weeks. Included are also live tracks, next to demos and other rare material. You can preview the release below. Turner’s All Night Drugstore (rare & unreleased 1987-1997) by BENESTROPHE

Grausame Töchter – Engel im Rausch


With their fifth album “Engel im Rausch” (Intoxicated Angel) (Release date: 26.10.18 – Scanner / Dark Dimensions Label Group) Grausame Töchter continue their steady development.

On “Engel im Rausch” you get drawn into a story about an intoxicated night, in which you get seduced by singer Aranea Peel (on the opening track Engel im Rausch), and where you find yourself waking up the next morning to bright sunrays, with the last song “Helle Sonne”.

The other songs therebetween narrate aspects from an ecstatic and at times psychedelic night, always leaving it open, whether the various metaphors – mostly dealing with heaven and the universe – are to stand for Love, Drugs, Sex… or something completely different?

With many lyrics, it only becomes clear at a second or third glance that everything is more complex in terms of content and more in-depth than it seems first. And musically speaking, the act proves once again to be very open and varied: Sometimes orchestral-pathetic, sometimes in good old dark wave tradition, their sound gets enriched also by elements from electropunk, EBM or TripHop!

For the first time Grausame Töchter have included three cover-versions on an album:

The “Neue Deutsche Welle”-classics “Goldener Reiter” [Joachim Witt] and “Rosemarie” [Hubert Kah] – but also a brand new cover of one of their own songs: “Beleidigte Engel” from their first album.

“Engel im Rausch” will also be released as limited 2CD edition with a 14-Tracks bonus album, feat. remixes by such acclaimed names as And One, Suicide Commando, Centhron – among others.

Grausame Töchter stand out as one of the most innovative bands of their genre: Creative, intelligent, and also a “tiny bit” provocative!
