The longest living and most resilient tank of Poland’s Death Metal fleet has once again hoisted its flag – ready to overrun the world with its new triumphant procession. Since 1983, founding member Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek and his crew have clad the world with brutal blasts, pumping rhythms and heavy iron riffs. “The Empire” is no exception, this musical inferno made out of steel, burns with merciless intensity. Driven by aggression, VADER bring their typical dark tunes and morbid leads to the battlefield and once more underline their status as legends. But VADER also bring a lot of diversification; besides the record’s thrashier moments, the tank rolls at a steady pace always looking forward – straight to the front without compromises and without mercy!
Composed and produced by Jacopo Rossi, interpreted by Mike Lunacy, drawn by the skillful hand of Gaspare Frazzitta, “The Rain After The Snow” carries an ancient message that travels through our conscience.
Music is life. This is the artistic approach of the three members of the British-Belgian Ambient Jazz project Groovecatcher. With their Elektrolux debut, the U.K. producers Simon Cooper and Phil Webb and the Belgian singer Manuela Van Geenhoven have managed to release one of the highlights of the label's 10th anniversary year. Their After The Rain album is an intensive encounter of organic naturalistic Ambient pop and jazzy lounge sounds between Balearic Beats and mellow Drum'n'Bass. Groovecatcher's music takes you from a smoky jazz club in the heart of town to a secluded beach to catch the sunrise, from a street-corner to an ocean drive.
