Back-catalogue Mentallo & The Fixer (and projects) reissued via Bandcamp in a remastered version – available now
Out of the blue Alfa Matrix has started a reissue series of the back-catalogue of the cult industrial music pioneers Mentallo & The Fixer and the band’s side-projects Benestrophe and Mainesthai. The 5 reissues have been fully remastered by Gary Dassing himself and are available now via Bandcamp. In the next weeks all 5 releases will also be available on all other digital platforms. For the occasion, a new artwork cover artwork has also been designed for every new rerelease. So let’s see what you can expect. Included are the Mentallo & The Fixer albums “Continuum” and “No Rest For The Wicked”. “Continuum” is an album that the Texas-based electro act released as a kind of collection of unreleased material left from the wreckage of the earlier days as Mentallo & The Fixer. “No Rest For The Wicked” is the act’s cult debut album which was later reissued with bonus tracks. From the side-project Mainesthai you get “Out To Lunch”, the first album released under this moniker. Mainesthai is the project that the Dassing brothers created in 1994 together with vocalist Michael Greene. Although embracing the same harsh complexities as the mother project, Mainesthai was intended to be more melodic […]
We all know Swedish duo Mika Rossi – Jesper Nilsson for their involvement with Autodafeh, but they also deal with other projects like Agrezzior. This is another EBM driven band inspired by the harder fields of body music. They last year released their third full length “Strike Back” on Infacted Recordings revealing power, energy and pure old-school EBM. This is what the band has to say about this opus. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: How do you look back at the writing of the “Strike Back”-album and are there in hindsight some elements of the production you would have done differently right now? Jesper: The making of our latest album “Strike Back” was all about raw, pure power. We wanted to do a real hard catchy body album, that was straight forward with punky vibes. Every track we made contained trashy sound foundation combined with hard-hitting bass lines and catchy melodies. It was fun to make this album cause both Mika and me loves this kind of EBM, that we proudly call ’powerbody’. We are not trying to be innovative, we just do what we want. In all we are very proud of how this album turned out so […]
