KMFDM “A Drug Against Wall Street” Digital Download + Poster

Download KMFDM‘s “A Drug Against Wall Street” music here. Download poster art here. Read Viva Music’s review of KMFDM‘s latest “WTF?!here.

Occupy Wall Street“, regardless of its outcome, will change forever the way we look at peaceful protests around the world. In the aftermath of a financial meltdown with stern measures and with a constant haggling of democracy/kleptocracy, artists around the world showed their support of the movement and the protesters. One fo them is none other than KMFDM, who offer as a digital download on their site a rework of their 1993 hit “A Drug Against War“, now titled “A Drug Against Wall Street“, offering new hues and new power of engagement to their original song, which already had a fame of its own. A 1994 “Beavis and Butthead” feature on MTV, and a song with critical acclaim, the song released in 1993 and reissued in 2009 can now be downloaded from the homepage of KMFDM, together with a poster that ascertains the band’s support of the social protest of recent weeks.

New Ad Inferna Single “eXsangue” Out!

Filed under: International News — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 10:00 am

Ad Inferna, who have kept themselves busy all the time, do not lose time and release “eXsangue“, just months away from the release of their “There Is No Cure” 2011 album which we enjoyed immensely and reviewed here. “eXsangue” can be ordered from here and it comes packed with cleverly designed t-shirts (in both women and men possessed packs) which read “I’m Possessed by Ad Inferna and There Is No Cure for That”, signed posters, cards, and of course, the single. “eXsangue”  sounds pretty amazing, and it is no wonder, since it is produced at this very high standard Ad Inferna accustomed us with; and it genuinely enthuses and seduces.

eXsangue”  – Watch the official video below:

Filed under: International News — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 10:11 am

“The new VNV Nation album “Automatic” will be released in September. The album has been in production for a while and so far it looks to be an incredibly energetic and anthemic release (and then some). We’ll be premiering some of the new songs at our show at the Nordstern Festival in Hamburg in July and snippets and previews will be posted online over the Summer. There’s so much we want to tell you about this album and what we have planned around it but we prefer to keep it a surprise, for the moment. There are lots of things planned that we’ve never attempted before and we’re really excited about it.” (source)

AESTHETIC PERFECTION signs to Metropolis Records!

Filed under: International News — Tags: , — admin @ 10:50 am

On March 20 and May 01, 2011 Viva Music played Aesthetic Perfection on Romanian national FM radio (Bucuresti FM), probably for the first time in the whole wide world. If you know any other national (not online) radio that has done the same, let us know. We are really proud of all our achievements, but the Electro/industrial radio show beats them all! Here is the (hi)story of our show.

Aesthetic Perfection immediately got fans and supporters in Romania, fans who have repeatedly inquired about a live show in Bucharest! Viva Music is still trying to book AP, so we may have the pleasure to see Mr. Graves in flesh and blood in Bucharest. As much as we would like to offer an unforgettable show to the Romanian fans, we also understand that Mr. Graves is really busy becoming famous! Here is the excellent news we have just received in a report from Metropolis Records:

  AESTHETIC PERFECTION Signs to Metropolis Records
New album ALL BEAUTY DESTROYED Scheduled For November 8th

in regular and Limited 2CD versions

Salzburg, Austria – Daniel Graves, the founder and sole creative member of AESTHETIC PERFECTION, announced today that he has signed his signature project to Out Of Line Records in Europe and Metropolis Records in North America. Both labels will be releasing ALL BEAUTY DESTROYED, his fourth album, in November of this year. There will be a standard single CD edition and a limited double CD version. “There’s an intentional irony in having a band called “Aesthetic Perfection” and naming your album All Beauty Destroyed,” notes Graves “It’s this struggle between personas, the dark and the light, the Jekyll and the Hyde.”

Fans of Grave’s previous albums won’t be disappointed as All Beauty Destroyed continues in the dance floor tradition set by A Violent Emotion, Close To Human and Blood Spills Not Far From The Wound (recorded as Necessary Response), though with this new album, things take a decidedly darker and more sinister turn. “The Devil’s In The Details”, the first single self-released by Graves in a special hand-packaged CD and as a downloadable track in the Rock Band Network showcased the evolved sound that Graves expounds on with the new release. The second single, “Inhuman”, with its synthesized chant of No hope, No pain, No loss, No gain, is bound to keep DJs satisfied with its pulsing rhythm and shout-along vocals. “Under Your Skin”, arguably the most unique track on the album, was recorded using no instruments other than Grave’s multi layered voice. The title track features piano accompaniment from Panzer AG’s Lauren Krothe and is the closest thing to a ballad as one can expect from Grave’s twisted mind.

Aesthetic Perfection’s live incarnation, which includes drummer Tim Van Horn, recently wrapped up its first headline tour of the USA (with support from Germany’s Faderhead)and included a blistering sold-out performance at Los Angeles’ legendary club Das Bunker. The band is preparing for their first headline tour of the UK in November and will be announcing additional European dates shortly. This constant touring, including previous runs supporting Combichrist, Imperative Reaction, S.I.T.D., Grendel and others have cemented Aesthetic Perfection’s hard earned reputation as a powerful live force in the electro-industrial scene.

All Beauty Destroyed promises to be the darkest and most dynamic piece of work Graves has created. As the LA Indy Media Blog notes, “Aesthetic Perfection is more than just rain in the desert, more than just food to a starving man: it is like having a friend jump into the fray as I am getting my butt kicked by 12 or 13 faceless stinking zombies.”

All Beauty Destroyed will be released in a single CD and 2CD edition in Europe by Out Of Line on November 4, 2011 and in North America by Metropolis Records on November 8, 2011. European dates and a US tour will be announced shortly.
