Well I will cover Depeche Mode and Enigma, since I am a big fan of these bands. So those you don't have to worry about.

Billy Corgan's "The Future Embrace" came out yesterday.  A lot of really Pumpkins sounding moments in this solo album, and really electronic/synth oriented.  As with all of Billy's work, it is quite daunting a listen on the first run, no really catchy songs, but after a few listen you begin to understand what is going on.  A very creative and experiemental album, and one I know I will be listening to regularly for weeks.  I would highly recommend it to anyone.

For the ones who like this kind of music...
A new album of Dimmu Borgir will be released in 2006.


"About the vacant drummer position, they decided "at least for the time being, not to invite a new drummer on a permanent basis. Tony Laureano from NILE will join us for all abovementioned festivals this summer, while MAYHEM's Hellhammer has offered his services for the new full-length album.

Writing will begin August/September sometime.

It'll take the time it needs, so don't expect any release sooner than second half of 2006, at earliest. We have not yet decided who will be supervising/co-producing our next studio effort, but what we do know is that it'll most likely be a full story/concept album. We feel it's time to do something 'else,' starting on scratch exploring fresh territory, challenge ourselves."

Another project on the album front is the re-recording of »Stormblåst« (1996), which is underway in Abyss Studios with Peter Tägtgren. Hellhammer will be onboard here also. The new release, due before the end of the year, will contain "extra material and previously unreleased stuff".
Apart from that, all members are involved in other bands/projects like CHROME DIVISION, INSIDIOUS DISEASE, ARCTURUS, and OLD MAN'S CHILD."

11/05/2005Death On The Road - Iron Maiden announce their new DVD/CD


Iron Maiden have confirmed they are to release a Double DVD and Live Album titled “DEATH ON THE ROAD” through EMI Records on August 29th 2005, and on Sanctuary Records in the USA on August 30th 2005.

The show was filmed at the Westfalenhalle Arena, Dortmund, Germany during the Dance of Death European Tour in December 2003 and fully captures the magnificent stage production and electricity of the band’s performance. Steve Harris once again took weeks personally editing the footage and like Rock in Rio this means thousands of cuts right into the heart of the action.


Yoohoo!!!  (From ironmaiden.com)

ATTENTION ALL KAMELOT FANS!!!!!!!!!


From Kamelot drummer Casey Grillo himself:

Ravan: So news is that Kamelot will be playing in Brazil this year. How do you feel about that?

Casey: It’s awesome! We’re gonna be doing a DVD, a LIVE DVD there. That’s what’s planned to do anyway. So, we’ll hope that everything works out with that.

More from the interview:

   "Doing the LIVE DVD, and right now I think that Thom and Roy are working on new stuff. And I’m working on a drum DVD, and some other things. That’s basically it for right now."

The Lovemakers don't pussyfoot with their intentions

AMBITION IS an ugly word in indie rock. It is uncool. Fame, should it happen, must appear accidental and mildly confusing, not unlike an unexpected pregnancy. That's why when the Oakland-based synth-pop group The Lovemakers jump-started their career by handing out free demos of their music at parties and other band's shows and even to random passersby, they looked like dorks. Any band that wants to give away its music is doing so because it could never sell that crap, right? Aspiration is inversely proportional to suckiness. Add to that the fact that band member Scott Blonde proudly announced that the group was in search of a major-label deal right out of the boxno Sub Pop, no Troubleman, no Saddle Creek, just Geffen, BMG or Warner Bros. if you please.

Well, the Lovemakers have scored a major-label contract all right, and they even scored a contract with a label that generally grabs the best underground bands that already have a national interest or buzz, Interscope. Queens of the Stone Age, ... And You Will Know Us by the Trail of the Dead and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs all had developed large followings in the indie scene before Interscope snatched them up.

That's why the Lovemakers' story is so unique. Not only have they scored an amazing deal with Interscope without having a national underground following, this band has also single-handedly made it OK for noncheesy bands to push themselves and actually be able to admit that they want to make it. Yes, friends, an indie band with the energy to promote itself is actually worthy of the fame it so desperately wants.

The Lovemakers formed in 2002, with Blonde on guitar and vocals, Lisa Light on violin, bass and vocals, and Jason Proctor on keyboards. Their sound has been compared to New Order and Berlin, placing them nicely in the canon of electronic bands that actually have pop songs jutting out from between the bleeps. The key is hooks, and this band has more of 'em than a nun's brassiere.

Onstage, the group has adopted the electroclash style of extreme sluttiness, with dildos, skimpy clothes, grinding and impromptu make-out sessions between Blonde and Light. The Eurythmics' Dave Stewart is producing their debut record due out in the Spring. The question now isn't whether the majors are ready for retro electronic bands, the question is whether or not the mainstream ready for the Lovemakers

The new album "Times of Romance" will be released August 23 on Cherry Tree / Interscope.

Depeche Mode Lift Angel

Synth-pop pioneers return with fourteenth album

Depeche Mode will mark their twenty-fifth year together with the release of their fourteenth album, Playing the Angel, in October. "We can be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame next year," guitarist Andy Fletcher says with a grin.

Produced by Ben Hiller (Blur, Doves), the record features the band's classic blend of moody synth-pop beats, heavy guitar riffs and dark lyrics. "There's a really strong DNA in our band," says Fletcher. "We almost can't help sounding like ourselves -- which is a good thing."

"We were in the studio," recalls frontman Dave Gahan, "and [Mute Records head] Daniel Miller came in and said, 'Oh, what's this album about then, the usual pain and suffering?' That's kind of our m.o."

On Playing the Angel, Gahan -- who released his debut solo album, Paper Monsters, in 2003 -- shares songwriting credits for the first time, territory traditionally reserved for keyboardist Martin Gore. "I was like, 'I'm not interested in doing this album unless I get to write songs,'" Gahan says. "So Martin and I talked about it. I think it caused a bit of competition in the band, which is healthy." Three of Gahan's songs will be included on the album.

Among his contributions is the ballad "Precious." "It's about what's important," says Gahan, who famously battled with drugs and depression in the past, "and seeing life through the eyes of my children."

Depeche Mode will launch a world tour in support of Playing the Angel in October.
