The Cruxshadows - Birthday
Following the smash success of Sophia, which went to #1 on the Billboard Dance Singles Sales Chart, The Cruxshadows are back with a second single from their latest album, DreamCypher. Birthday has proven to be a fan favorite all over the world (it went over especially well at the band’s concerts in China) and as always, the band is eager to please their fans. In addition to the title track there are two remixes (a radio edit and a club mix) plus a brand new song (“The Eighth Square”). To top it off, the band is including one of their fanbase’s top requests: a performance of the song White Rabbit, which was part of the Cruxshadows live show for several years but until now has never appeared on any of their recordings.
Hocico - About A Dead
Active Image"God is dead!" – when Erk Aicrag screams out these words in his typical blood-curdling manner, hardly anyone is going to doubt that this is intended as a full-frontal assault… and not just musically. The song is a merciless romp against religious fanatics and abuse within the confines of the Christian church, wrapped up in a smashing dance track that comes straight to the point.
Erk and Racso have returned to the raw, beat-laden power of their early releases, and stripped the track of anything that might inhibit their pure, aggressive energy. With a catchy sequencer lick and a mighty chorus part that is destined to burn into your skull, “About a Dead” combines all the strengths of the Mexican duo and is a mandatory spin for any Electro party. The b-side “The Last Warning” is a dark monumental soundscape building up to a furious finale – the ideal counterpart to the unleashed aggression of the title track. The CD also includes three remixes (by Proceed, Lola Angst and Cephalgy.)
This limited single is a grandiose appetizer for the upcoming new Hocico-album… one that will leave you longing for more. Released on Out Of Line.
