“Of all scene-related festivals taking place in Germany, the Amphi Festival, located at the scenic banks of the river Rhine, at the Tanzbrunnen in Cologne, is one of the most popular, with tickets being sold out weeks prior in previous years. As usual, this year’s festival line up features some of the biggest names in the scene. It is therefore little wonder that the selection of bands on “Amphi Festival 2011”, the official festival-compilation, reads like a “who is who” of the scene, with contributions from Hocico, Agonoize, Nitzer Ebb, Die Krupps, Suicide Commando, Subway To Sally, Tanzwut, Kirlian Camera, Covenant, DE/Vision, Clan Of Xymox, Leaether Strip, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio and many more. This jam-packed sampler of the latest hits at a wallet-friendly EP-price-tag is, thusly, not only the ideal festival-souvenir but also a comprehensive overview of the most popular acts in the Goth-/Electro- and Medieval-scenes and a perfect entry point for novices to the “Dark Side!” The dark sounds of summer at the price of a beach cocktail!” (source)
