Info :
Als “X Marks the Pedwalk” im Jahre 1987 ihre Karriere, damals noch unter dem Bandnamen “Scarecrow” und der Single “Black Door”, begannen, konnte wohl noch Niemand ahnen welche Tragweite die Band in der EBM/Electro Landschaft einmal einnehmen würde. Oft als die “deutschen Skinny Puppy” bezeichnet waren sie eine DER treibenden Kräfte der frühen Electro/Electronic Body Music Bewegung! Heute, über 23 Jahre und unzählige wegweisende Veröfffentlichungen später, ist die Band zurück, ausdrucksstark wie nie! Alben wie “Human Desolation”, “Drawback” oder “Meshwork” sind noch heute legendär und bereits zu gesuchten Sammlerstücken avanciert, Songs wie “Abattoir”, “Facer” oder “Cenotaph” fester Bestandteil vieler DJ Sets weltweit! Mit der Single “Seventeen” und dem Album “Inner Zone Journey” läuteten Sevren Ni-Arb und Raive Yarx ihr Comeback, nach fast 15 Jahren Schaffenspause, im Jahr 2009 eindrucksvoll ein. Vorrausgegangen waren Wiederveröffentlichungen der Tonträger “Abattoir”, “Centotaph” und zuletzt “Facer”, mit umfangreichem Bonusmaterial, im Rahmen der INFACTED RECORDINGS Klassiker CD-Serie. Nach über 15 Jahren Bühnenabstinenz konnte die Band dann 2010 für ein exklusives Re-Union Konzert, dank der Mithilfe der Agentur INMOVE, auf dem WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN gewonnen werden! Für die Band war es ein immenses logistisches Unterfangen sowohl Videokünstler als auch Produktionsfirma zeitgenau zu koordinieren. Eine Generalprobe in Nürnberg (hier wurde extra eine Halle angemietet) war die einzige Möglichkeit Musik und visuelle Elemente vor der grossen Show auf dem WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN in Einklang zu bringen. Eben jener Auftritt wurde dann der ideale Zeitpunkt dieses Event erstmal auf DVD zu bannen. Ein echtes Unikum in der Bandgeschichte da es bisher noch nie ein visuelles Dokument des Bandschaffens gegeben hatte. Unter dem Titel “Visual Journey” präsentiert die DVD alles was das Fanherz begehrt! Das komplette Wave Gotig Treffen Konzert mit einem “Best of” Set angereichert mit exklusivem Backstage Material (die Band trifft hier u.a. Ronan Harris von VNV NATION), einer Bildergallerie zum Konzert (alle Bilder exklusiv geschossen von Daniela Vorndran), den Videoclips zu “Seventeen” und dem Klassiker “Danger” (der aufwendig digital aufpoliert wurde) sowie einem ausführlichen Bandinterview. Ein Zeitdokument das diese äusserst aufwendige Konzertproduktion mit Laser-Bank und drei gigantischen Videoscreens für immer auf Silberscheibe bannt! Besonders das Interview auf der DVD ist für den Fan ein wahrer Informationsquell, so schaut Sevren Ni-Arb hier zurück in der Historie, bietet aber auch gleichzeitig einen Ausblick auf das was da kommen mag und plaudert fleissig aus dem Nähkästchen. Nicht nur für Fans der Anfangstage dürfte diese DVD ein absolutes Must Have darstellen!

When “X Marks the Pedwalk” first established in 1987 under the former bandname “Scarecrow” with their single “Black Door” no one would have ever imagined which way their musical career would take. Often called the “german Skinny Puppy” the band did set standard in the EBM/Electro world! A true force in innovation and catchy dance songs! Album releases such as “Human Desolation”, “Drawback” or “Meshwork” became true collectors items and are most wanted subjects in the collection of all electro/EBM maniacs! With their single “Seventeen” and the come back album “Inner Zone Journey” Svren Ni-Arb & Raive Yarx returned after a musical break of almost 15 (!) years! Re-releases of cult hits such as “Abattoir”, “Cenotaph” or “Facer” made their way for a great comeback! In cooperation with german concert agency INMOVE we managed to get them together for a unique re-union concert at this year edition of famous german WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN in Leipzig. The stage appearance was filmed with six cameras and cut together to an outstanding documentary of the bands great history! Old and new material mixed together to a nice best of set including their most wanted songs! Together with a nice interview, backstage footage, picture gallery and video-clips for SEVENTEEN and DANGER this DVD turned out as a true must have collectors item! The first visual document by X Marks the Pedwalk in the bands long history! With this DVD you get an inside view to the band as well as great video footage of this breathtaking stage appearance during WGT 2010! A MUST have for OLD and NEW fans of the band!

Info :
Dancing to LPF12 is like eating lobster with mayonnaise in a snack-bar. Yeah, you could do that, but it’s no delight!

“Individual Suffering”, the new album by LPF12, is an experience. Just calling this music wouldn’t be appropriate, it would be an understatement. LPF12 is music for the mind. Music that evokes pictures. Music that evokes emotions. Music for gourmets of sound.

Skilfully LPF12 combines electro-rhythms with complex arrangements, soundtrack-like melodies with experimental sounds. Intelligent song-structures with mysterious vocals. Simply the best of ambient, new age, electro, industrial and techno – and creates a music you can only describe as cinema for your mind, while on the other hand being surprisingly danceable.

As impossible as it may sound: LPF12 is exactly the intersection of Skinny Puppy and Tangerine Dream, making “intelligent dance music” in the truest sense of word. Being no longer an inside tip, LPF12 gathers fans around the world with his unique music, to Brasil, Mexico and the USA. Music that belongs to the dancefloor and to your headphones.

When it comes to LPF12, you won’t find the aggression of distorted vocals or testosterone-driven beats in the foreground. LPF12 tells personal stories, converted into fascinating music, where every sample, every melody, every chord, every beat, every word is only one detail of the whole. With every new listen you will find something new in his soundscapes. Electronic music hasn’t been so exciting, diverse, complex and entertaining since a long time.

“Individual Suffering” is the absolute perfection of what LPF12 already outlined with his highly praised EP “Sub Route”. Music for your mind and your legs. Because you don’t have to be afraid: you can dance to it as well … BUT …

Listen: new remix for Project Rotten’s “Crucified”

Rubber Ducky (the head behind Project Rotten) was bored this weekend and felt like creating something. So he did a remix of “Crucified” – the original can be found on the now available debut album “Freakshow” (click here for details).

Enjoy the remix!

Info :
LPF12 shows clearly that something new and innovative is still possible in electronic music. LPF12 is “intelligent dance music“ made for your mind cinema! Electronic tracks full of complex arrangements, tricky rhythms, mysterious sounds and intelligent structures, which are able to challenge the listener without asking too much of him. With every listen new pictures are being created in the head. The multilayered music guides the ear to every new detail. The listener becomes the discoverer.

With experimental and demanding soundscapes, catchy melodies and driving beats LPF12 creates a unique, atmospheric music with a strong danger of addiction. With his excessive creativity LPF12 should easily be able to make some of the established electro-acts go pale with envy. Intelligent music and dancefloor are going hand in hand! LPF12 is music made for headphones, for the joy of sound. Music for gourmets, for explorers … but don’t restrain yourself if your muscles are twitching. LPF12 is definitely danceable and suitable for clubs! But it’s just so much more!
