Electronic rockers The Birthday Massacre have released “Down”, a new song from their upcoming album Hide And Seek, which comes out Oct. 9th via Metropolis Records (pre-order here). You can hear the track below as well as read the lyrics.
Vocalist Chibi states, “There is an intensity to this record that I definitely felt while we were writing and recording. At times, for me, it was a struggle. I had some very strong emotions during the time we worked on this, and it shows, I think, in my vocals – and I really love how it turned out. The lyrics also touch on some darker themes. There’s a lot of very moving stuff on this record. Very intense stuff.”
The Birthday Massacre will be going on tour with William Control and Aesthetic Perfection this fall. You can check out all the tour dates here. READ MORE

Talking about Hide And Seek, vocalist Chibi states, “There is an intensity to this record that I definitely felt while we were writing and recording. At times, for me, it was a struggle. I had some very strong emotions during the time we worked on this, and it shows, I think, in my vocals – and I really love how it turned out. The lyrics also touch on some darker themes. There’s a lot of very moving stuff on this record. Very intense stuff.”
Guitarist Rainbow adds, “There was an underlying sense of tension and urgency throughout the writing process. It was a tumultuous and emotional experience for us but, I think it’s yielded some of our best work.”

Metropolis recording artists COMBICHRIST have been tapped as main support for RAMMSTEIN’s first and only show on U.S. soil in ten years at NYC’s legendary Madison Square Garden. The show will take place on Saturday, December 11, 2010.
Rammstein and Combichrist are no strangers to each other. Both bands toured Europe together for four months in 2010, strengthening a tie that ultimately brought them together for what will undoubtedly be an amazing evening of beat-driven metal and industrialized mayhem.
While Rammstein will be returning from a tour of Latin America before this show, Combichrist will have wrapped up their previously announced U.S. Monsters On Tour with Aesthetic Perfection and iVardensphere as support as well as a handful of dates in Australia. Due to the announced Madison Square Garden date, the previously announced New York City date on November 20th has been canceled (refunds available at point of purchase). In addition, the Montreal, QC on November 18th has been canceled as well. Replacement shows on those dates have been announced in Ithaca, NY and Pittsburgh, PA.
Every Monday night, at Club Necto in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is Factory Monday, a night filled with Industrial, EBM, Goth, Electronica, Synth, etc… music. It’s a night when the darker characters of our society can come out and play. Earlier this year, I did an interview at Club Necto with Ronan Harris of VNV Nation, who claims that in all his travels and his performances throughout the world, there is no place quite like Factory Monday.
Each year, Factory Monday releases a CD with some of the most popular tracks of the year and gives it out for free to the club goers. You can check out the Factory Monday 2010 CD Track List (courtesy of DJ Jinx) HERE

With the release of their fifth studio album Making Monsters coming on September 28, 2010, Metropolis recording artists Combichrist
have announced dates for Monsters on Tour with support from Aesthetic Perfection and Ivardensphere. Tickets for the tour go on sale this weekend (tour dates below).
Kicking off on November 3rd in New Orleans and circling around the States, this is the band’s first tour of the US after four months on the road supporting Rammstein in Europe. Combichrist’s much lauded and respected live shows are, as Crypt Magazine describes, “known for tons of energy, blood, and a rock n’ roll attitude.” BlogCritics also warns it’s “not for the faint of heart – you wouldn’t bring your grandmother to this show.”
