As part of The Stranglers' celebration of their Ruby Anniversary, the definitive collection of the B-side recordings they made whilst signed to Epic is released for the first time, via their own label. Appropriately, as befits a band marking forty years together, Here & There: The Epic B-sides Collection 1983-1991 gathers 40 tracks across 2 CDs and is also released as a 40 track digital package. The Stranglers released no less than 13 singles in the UK during this period, which saw them produce five albums: four studio and one live. The Stranglers signed to Epic Records in 1982 having been with United Artists / Liberty since 1977. The change of label coincided with changes in marketing policy across the UK industry - often dubbed "the Frankie Goes to Hollywood effect". Previously, The Stranglers' had released only one 12" single - an extended version of Bear Cage in 1980 - but from 2nd Epic single, Midnight Summer Dream until 1990, each release had a 12" version which required extra studio or, increasingly, live tracks to "add value" to the package.

A major change of direction for Berlin, Count Three & Pray was an artistic triumph but a commercial disappointment. After making a name for itself playing very European-sounding synth pop, the L.A. trio recruited producer Bob Ezrin (known for his work with Alice Cooper and others) and unveiled a more hard-edged, guitar-oriented sound. From the rockin' "Trash" (which features none other than Ted Nugent – the last person one would expect to work with Berlin!) to the ballad "Pink and Velvet" (a tale of two heroin addicts' romance that is as poignant as it is disturbing), Count Three & Pray leaves no doubt just how much lead singer Terri Nunn and her colleagues were enjoying this radical change. But sadly, record buyers weren't ready for it. Despite the inclusion of the hauntingly pretty number one hit "Take My Breath Away" (included in the film Top Gun) the album didn't sell nearly as well as Pleasure Victim or Love Life. Geffen was bitterly disappointed, and Berlin soon broke up.

2017 two CD anthology by post-punk pioneers Ludus, featuring vocalist Linder Sterling and guitarist Ian Devine.

'People who know real genius will love this record,' wrote early fan Morrissey. 'Ludus are sound psychology for the modern clientele.'

Industrial / Gothic Metal | Label : Hell Of Sermon

Hall of Sermon is happy to announce the all new album from Tilo Wolff [LACRIMOSA]’s Industrial / electro sideproject, the first new sign of life of SNAKESKIN exactly 10 years after the release of the previous album “Canta’tronic.” “Tunes for my Santiméa” features vocals by Tilo Wolff with female singers Kerstin Doelle (who was already present on “Canta’tronic”) and the new entry Carina Boehmer! 10 new songs of uncompromising electro, melting with classical arrangements, a flavour of pop and a tremendous amount of anger and emotions! Although this release is closer to the style of LACRIMOSA, than the two previous albums, also this third album is very ‘industrial’ influenced and faithful to the project’s unique style. With three singers the range of the project’s sound is wider than ever before! Tilo is currently putting the final touches on a high quality video clip, produced in Los Angeles with crewmembers of Steven Soderbergh (“Ocean’s Eleven,” “Magic Mike”…).

Elastica's debut album may cop a riff here and there from Wire or the Stranglers, yet no more than Led Zeppelin did with Willie Dixon or the Beach Boys with Chuck Berry. The key is context. Elastica can make the rigid artiness of Wire into a rocking, sexy single with more hooks than anything on Pink Flag ("Connection") or rework the Stranglers' "No More Heroes" into a more universal anthem that loses none of its punkiness ("Waking Up"). But what makes Elastica such an intoxicating record is not only the way the 16 songs speed by in 40 minutes, but that they're nearly all classics. The riffs are angular like early Adam & the Ants, the melodies tease like Blondie, and the entire band is as tough as the Clash, yet they never seem anything less than contemporary.

'Dark Sarah' is a young Finn who was trained as a classical singer. Heidi Parviainen, Dark Sarah’s real name, founded this project in 2012. And again on their new album "The Puzzle" we hear classical music, combined with metal, film and theatre music. In addition, the lady receives energetic support from Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto (Northern Kings), Charlotte Wessels (Delain) and Manuela Kraller (Xandria). Dark Sarah is the story of a young woman named Sarah who fights against her dark self (Dark Sarah)! Fans of Symphonic/Orchestral Metal, Gothic metal, or Female Fronted Metal will find The Puzzle to be a winner. Dark Sarah’s The Puzzle is a fine example of Cinematic Metal – a true Rock Opera – and it is highly recommended!
