I’ve made no attempt to hide my love of VNV Nation. As much as I’m a metal head, I love some good electronica, industrial, EBM, and dark wave. So when Automatic, the new VNV album, was announced, I immediately felt my ears perk and my focus shift. After all, I’ve been listening to this group for years, so a new album is always an exciting moment. But does Automatic hold up? Check after the jump for the answer.
I am a huge fan of VNV Nation. Ronan one of the first interviews I did for BD Music and he was super cool, so that only compounded my love of the music. Therefore, I hope you can understand why I’m so excited to hear the new VNV album, Automatic. If not, hit the ‘Read More’ button and listen to over nine minutes of electronic/industrial bliss.
With rumors of Static-X taking an indefinite hiatus, fans are eager to hear Wayne Static‘s solo project Pighammer. After the jump, you can check out the first video from the solo album entitled Assassins Of Youth.
Marilyn Manson has dubbed his upcoming album Born Villain. Considering that was the name of the song released yesterday, I don’t think many people are surprised by this. He also posted on his official website a short blurb detailing the work that he has done with actor Shia LaBeouf:
Industrial legends Skinny Puppy have announced October 25th as the release date for their 14th studio album hanDover. After the jump, you can check out the official track list as well as read quotes from Ogre and Key.
I don’t know about you guys but I’m a huge Static-X fan. They’ve been pretty damn consistent in sound and releases and their music is always a lot of fun. Plus, if you’re a horror fan in the slightest, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ve heard their music in at least two or three films. I mean, let’s look at a few of the bigs ones: Bride of Chucky, Scream 3, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake), Saw III, and more. If you haven’t seen these movies, then what are you doing on this site? Shame on you!
Seriously, did you really think we’d leave out Chibi’s Top 10 list? No way! I saved this one for last because her list features some of my absolute favorites, such as Session 9 (what a brilliant movie!). However, I post this list and heave a sigh of sadness for this is the last entry in our week of The Birthday Massacre Top 10 Lists. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Rainbow, Rhim, Nate Manor, Owen, Falcore, and Chibi for putting together these amazing lists! You all rock!
It’s been one awesome week, what with all these great Top 10 lists from The Birthday Massacre! If these lists haven’t made you update your Netflix queue at all, either you’re too scared to face these great movies OR you’ve already seen them all, in which case kudos to you! Today brings us yet another awesome Top 10 list, this one from lead guitarist and synth/drum programmer Falcore and features some of my own personal favorites! Check it out after the jump!
Today brings the second-to-last Top 10 list from The Birthday Massacre. After the jump, you can find Owen’s Top 10 favorite horror movies as well as a little explanation for each choice. Personally, I find his reasoning for The Thing to be quite hilarious (and 100% accurate).
Today brings us the third Top 10 list from the The Birthday Massacre! This list comes from bassist Nate Manor and, though short, has some classic choices. Make sure to check it out after the jump.
Today we continue our week of Top 10 lists from The Birthday Massacre with Rhim’s favorites. TBM will be releasing a new EP entitled Imaginary Monsters (review here) on August 15th, so make sure to pick that up! Also, check out Rainbow’s Top 10 here.
I’m a big fan of The Birthday Massacre, just getting that out there. With their shameless use of synths, infectious songs and, pardon my chauvinism, a smoking hot singer, what is there to dislike about this band? Well, they have an EP about to come out called Imaginary Monsters (review here) and to hype up the release, BD Music is thrilled to announce not one, not two but five days of The Birthday Massacre Top 10 lists! Check back each day for a different member’s list!
Electronic duo Twitch The Ripper (Bodiless review here) will be hitting the road this fall on The Triptych Tour, which features Imperative Reaction, God Module, and System Syn. Having seen these guys on the Thrill Kill Kult tour, I highly recommend that you go and check them out! Once on stage, they seem to enter a trance where the music and the performance is everything. It’s something that I rarely see and I enjoyed every minute of their set. You can check out the full touring schedule at their official website.
When it comes to industrial rock, there are a few bands that should immediately spring to mind. However, none of them should be as quick as KMFDM. With a career spanning over two decades and countless releases, this German band is one of the most widely influential artists in the music scene. And they’ve just announced a full US tour!
One of the first video interviews I conducted for Bloody-Disgusting was VNV Nation at the Necto in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Having already been a fan for years, I was beyond excited to finally meet Ronan Harris and have a chat with him. So, hearing that there is a new album coming out this fall is like having Barry White sex my ears up with his velvety voice. I’m already getting all warm and gooey inside thinking of all the good times I can have with this album. Hell, I remember getting lucky to some VNV tracks once! Don’t believe me? Neither did she, but that’s because she kept asking, “Is it in yet?” Look, it’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion of the ocean, okay? I’m gonna go cry now…
One of the biggest hurdles for aspiring DJ’s and remix artists is the staggering time and cost of securing permission to use copyrighted material. However, Legitmix, a new software, aims to remove that hurdle entirely and without the record label having any say.
I like to go out to the local industrial/goth club every once in a while. I’m not much of a dancer, but the music is great, the drinks are cheap and the company is awesome. It’s also how I heard about a band such as Angelspit. The Combichrist 110% remix is awesome and you should see the dance club move when that track comes on. Well, Angelspit has a new album out called Carbon Beauty and they recently released a video for the track Toxic Girl. After the jump, you can check out the uncensored, totally NSFW version, which features anime porn, bare breasts, sex dolls, suicides and more.
