Industrial act Fleischkrieg pays tribute to Frankie Goes To Hollywood with new video ‘Relax’

Industrial act Fleischkrieg has unveiled their new video for the Frankie Goes To Hollywood song, “Relax”. “Relax” appears on the forthcoming Fleischkrieg album, “Herzblut”, due out in October of this year. Guitarist Thomas Crawford explains the choice: “We chose this song because we believe it was a perfect representation of FleischKrieg’s sound. An 80’s influence of pop and synth about self-love and respect, wrapped in a heavy industrial bow!” The band released “Fool’s Folly”, the first single and music video off their debut album “Herzblut” earlier this year. The band will continue to release a new single and music video in July, September, and October to promote the album’s October release. But here’s their version of “Relax”.

The video was shot by Jeroen Jullet – a Jerry’s Joint. The band, centered around Isa Holliday and Jelle Harde Ronsmans, had a rough past few years.

Shortly after, their label Holy Roar Records imploded, leaving the band without a label. The new album was produced by Slow Crush, Sebastian Omerson and Neil D. Kennedy. Recorded January 2021 at Number Nine Studios, Ghent by Sebastian Omerson and Mattias Hendrikx, overdubs were added in February 2021 at Larsson Studio, Gelrode by Jelle Harde and Jens Larsson.

Unreleased 2005 song by Scum with Mortiis on vocals out now

Here’s a Mortiis curiosum… Out now is the previously unreleased Scum song “Speaking In Tongues” with Mortiis on vocals. This release happens in collaboration with Samoth, Faust, Happy Tom, and the others that were part of the Casey Chaos-driven project Scum, back in 2005. The song was for various reasons, never included on the final album version, and remained sort of lost and forgotten, until recently. You get the unreleased rough mix track from “Gospels for the Sick” from the 2005 session which was recorded at the Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo. The recording was engineered by the late Marius Bodin Larsen. Speaking In Tongues by SCUM Scum is a Norwegian hardcore punk/black metal band formed in 2002. All members are Norwegian except for the American vocalist Casey Chaos. Their album, “Gospels for the Sick”, was recorded in one single session in 2004, and they have only had a few live performances. The band had guest appearances from several artists, one of which was Mortiis who cowrote and performed on the song “Speaking in Tongues”. Scum’s band members have played in several other bands. Guitarist Samoth played in the black metal bands like Emperor, Gorgoroth, Satyricon, Zyklon, Thou Shalt Suffer, […]

’30 Years Of Journalism – Celebration Interview’ with ‘Music Lover’ Jürgen Vanvlasselaer: ‘A Great Track Is A Great Track, Whatever Genre It Is’

2021 is a special year to me! Thirty years of journalism, which gave me the opportunity to review thousands of albums and interview a countless number of bands.  I got the idea to celebrate this special event by interviewing people from the scene who all have a special meaning to me. I of course- and in the first place think about artists, but without fans artists would never become what they are. It’s not that different for magazines and journalists; without readers there would be no magazine, without visitors there would be no online magazine. An artist, an organizer of live events and festivals, a radio broadcasting, a journalist… we would be nothing without fans and followers. That’s why I got the idea to celebrate music lovers by interviewing one of them. It’s a way to pay homage to all those music lovers who often spend a lot of money and time to support all what we’re doing. Jürgen Vanvlasselaer is a guy I personally met years ago now. I know him as a true passionate music lover. This interview is an opportunity to sincerely thank him –and all other music lovers in the world. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) […]

Raison d’être is a Swedish dark ambient project formed by Peter Andersson in 1991. The name of the band was taken from a sentence in a book by Carl Gustav Jung: “the individuation is the raison d’être of the self.” Dark ambient atmospheres, drone elements, industrial sounds, ecclesiastical hymns are all blended together to constitute the music of Raison d’être.
