Happy 24/2!

The international EBM day, for obvious reasons! A good day to drink beer and Jäger (many tasses!), do pushups, drink more Jäger, and stomp around till the floor starts making unhealthy little noises. Or, if you are lucky, there may be an event going on in your city. Destroy the floor of their locale instead!

In case you lack music for your celebration, check out the Vox Insana blog, which does a great job in promoting old school EBM, including downloads of many very underground and rare bands and releases.

And last, but not least, this day is perfectly fitting to present the final line-up for Electric Tremor's Familientreffen VI (all, except one yet unknown band which will open the festival on Thursday). So you can stomp and dance on eastern German asphalt! There is only one thing to say in relation to this: if you like the music that this blog promotes, you simply have to be there. There is no other choice! Familientreffen this year is going even more old school than ever before, with several bands brought back from the 80s and early 90s, as well as a great dose of newer anhalt EBM! If you desire, you can show your attending devotion in RSVP (whatever that means) on Facebook page we created for this.

Behold the legendary line-up, or go to the original festival page to view various information.

Body Slam and Familientreffen 6

Body Slam is a newly released EP consisting of three Swedish old school ebm bands, each of their own style: Batch ID - (mixing old school EBM, a touch of punk, and synthpop), Stockholm Wrecking Crew (pure energy of old school EBM and electropunk), and No Sleep By The Machine (old school EBM with a unique slightly grim energy). Each band presents two tracks for this EP, making a total of six - in case you are too drunk to count (drink more Jäger!). More information can be gathered here (on the left side of the page, below band info, in case you are still too drunk to find it), and in relation to this EP there will be an event on 10th of April in Göteborg, naturally featuring all three bands.

And, Familientreffen 6, the best festival around in July (1-4) for fans of oldschool and anhalt EBM, already has a handful of bands confirmed: AAAK, Armageddon Dildos, Astma, C.C.C.P., EkoBrottsMyndigheten, Groupe T, Hatbrott, Octoberland, Schwefelgelb, SPARK!, T.W.A.T., and Turnbull A.C.s. Electric Tremor will publish the remaining line-up sometime during this weekend, so keep an eye out on the festival page! Notice the nifty countdown clock! (and drink more Jäger!)

EkoBrottsMyndigheten in Italy this Saturday

This is a recorded message coming directly from EkoBrottsMyndigheten. *Beep* "EVERYONE READY TO STOMP?! See you guys in Naples on saturday! Boots on and beer in hand!" *beep*

Add at least one "eine tasse Jäger" to boots and beer, and you will be 100% ready. The event is this Saturday, February 7th, at Club House Europa, Naples. The opening band is Blood Shot Eyes, which is Italian anhalt EBM. If you do shamefully miss this event, you will get another chance to see EkoBrottsMyndigheten on Familientreffen this year.

Go to their Myspace to check out some of the new songs that haven't been released yet, like "Jimmy" or "Extremsport".

Remember to do push-ups if they play "Dolph Lundgren" song!! Jäger! Jäger!
