The year 2009 is already looking very promising. So here goes another stream of news and album announcements:
A.D.A.C. 8286 announced a new album this March. It will be released on Electric Tremor and promises more pure old school ebm. The factory boys are back! The album bears the title "Love, Hate 'n' Rage" - which also sounds as a good description of their previous material, so one can expect the same hardcore old school ebm style.
Sturm Café are promising a new album this spring. The band is already lined up for several concerts in late spring and rest of the summer in Sweden, Germany (Familientreffen V), and more. It will follow the same style their previous full lenght album did (So Seelisch So Schön): which means a mix of harder ebm tracks like Mozart Ideal and Stiefelfabrik, and tracks closer to synth-pop in style, yet remaining old school ebm. Sounds like another classic from Sturm Café in other words! There is also a mention of an EP to be released sometime soon. Eine Tasse Jäger will keep you posted once the more detailed dates are known!
Darkmen are also building up their discography with a new release. It is being made as we speak, and should come out this month. Produced by Ionic Vision and released on their label Machineries of Joy. Darkmen is a relatively new band with several EPs and one full-length album, but the minds behind it have been working with music for many years. You can expect maximum old school ebm experience with a good dose of Nitzer Ebb and Front 242 infuence. Follow the link to their Myspace to have a taste.
And last, but not least: a new releaze from Sequenz-E is coming this spring, also released on Electric Tremor.
