Gary Zon aka US based electro act Dismantled has been working on a new album, the follow-up to 2011’s “The War Inside Me”. The new full-length will be titled “Endless” and will combine the styles of all of his past albums into what he calls a ‘more cohesive, mature sound’. Gary: “It will be along the lines of Standard Issue mixed with the sound of self-titled and The War Inside Me. I hope to complete it by the end of the year but am in no hurry to finish it.” A preview of a new track “Never Be” can be heard below. Dismantled began in late 2000 and its first and only demo release came in March 2001 through the now defunct mp3.com (now housing a CBS music website). Metropolis Records and Dependent contacted Zon released the self-titled debut. Dismantled’s 2004 second release was “Post Nuclear”. “Standard Issue” followed in 2006. “When I’m Dead” was released in 2007 and “The War Inside Me”, Dismantled’s last album, saw the light of day in 2011. More recently, Gary Zon was also involved in two side projects. One is Aerodrone, an electroclash band signed to Warner/Cordless Records. The other, which includes female vocalist […]

Finnish electro/EBM/pop formation Neuroactive this year released its seventh studio album entitled “Minor Side Effects”. I think we might consider this new album as a real special one as master mind Jarkko Tuohimaa reunited with his two original band mates Vesa Raine and Ville Brusi. It also is the first album released on the Belgian leading electro label Alfa Matrix. “Minor Side Effects” is a mature production revealing multiple noticeable songs with a very own sound DNA. Jarkko Tuohimaa answered a few questions about the new work. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: The new album “Minor Side Effects” is for sure a special one and even a milestone in Neuroactive’s history as all original- & core members have been reunited. How did this happened and how did it feel to work back again after all these years? Jarkko: First of all I must say it’s been really fun working with all of them again after all these years. And it’s great if it raises some interest among listeners too. That said I have been in contact with them most of that time. During these past years I have done some remixing and mastering work for their music projects: Huminoida, […]
The German band DIE KREATUR, a collaboration of OOMPH!-frontman Dero Goi and Lord Of The Lost singer Chris Harms has released its debut album via Napalm Records. ‘Panoptikum’ is the name of this first album and it can be ordered here. It was released digitally, as digipak-cd, limited edition deluxe box, 3-cd earbook and 2-lp. The limited edition deluxe box contains the exclusive ‘Panoptikum 1920’ cd, featuring recordings of all songs in the style of the swinging 1920’s, recorded on an authentic piano, as well as two vocal microphones. Both artists met each other in Leipzig (2015) during a common dj-set and worked already previously together on the songs ‘Europa’ of OOMPH! and ‘Abracadabra’ of Lord of the Lost. On ‘Panoptikum’ the Neue Deutsche Härte style is also strongly and clearly present. DIE KREATUR: “Panoptikum comes up with a dark arc of suspense that takes the listener into the gloomy, winding alleys of the 1920s, where they meet freaks and creatures of all kinds. However, true evil awaits them not in the hideous creatures on display at Panoptikum, but behind the stuffy façade of the normal, respectable citizen that delights in their gruesome appearance. Panoptikum is the ruthless reflection of a […]

Static-X, the American industrial metal band from Los Angeles, California, is back. Formed in 1994 by Wayne Static and original drummer Ken Jay, they rose to fame with their 1999 debut album “Wisconsin Death Trip” featuring a heavy industrial metal sound. The band released five more albums over the course of the next decade: “Machine” in 2001, “Shadow Zone” in 2003, “Start a War” in 2005, “Cannibal” in 2007, and “Cult of Static” in 2009. The band entered a hiatus while Static worked on his solo album, “Pighammer”, in 2011. Static briefly reformed Static-X in 2012, using only members of his solo album’s touring band, before officially breaking up in June 2013. On November 1, 2014, Wayne Static died at the age of 48. That could have meant the end of the band, but the rest of the original Static-X lineup – bassist Tony Campos, guitarist Koichi Fukuda and drummer Ken Jay – announced on October 23, 2018 that they were reforming the band in Static’s honor, and would release their first studio album in eleven years in 2020. Out now is the official music video for “All These Years”, the second single off of their upcoming album, “Project Regeneration […]
