Press Release: Zwaremachine

Our friends at Mach Fox have a new project, Zwaremachine and they will be the feature band for upcoming #163 this season.

Zwaremachine – Be A Light
RELEASED: April 11th 2018
LABEL: Phage Tapes
FORMAT: CD/Cassette/Digital

Minimal Hypnotic Industrial Body Music

Minneapolis MN (USA) EBM project Zwaremachines first full length album.
Be A Light contains 7 original tracks and 7 remix tracks making up almost an hour of industrial electronics.
Zwaremachine is heavily influenced by early electronic artists such as Klinik and Front 242.

With an eerie hum Zwaremachine embraces ebm/industrial soundscapes while honing their persistent darkwave experimental approach.
Intent on trashing your sense of disbelief with eerie, deranged soundscapes and menacing grooves the album has artwork that depicts the strange world these songs live in.

The digital release includes an additional 7 bonus remixes(21 tracks total), artwork, photo and poster art by Paul Gerrard.

The artwork for Be A Light is a collaboration between Paul and his brother and fellow artist Mark Gerrard.
Paul Gerrard is a concept artist and illustrator from the United Kingdom currently working in the film and video game industry.
Paul has worked on feature films such as Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wrath of the Titans and Battle: Los Angeles.
The band is honored to be able to feature Paul’s artwork on Zwaremachine-related projects.

Band website –
http://www.zwaremachine.band/

“Zwaremachine are a trio devoted to minimal and militant EBM with a darkwave influence, reminiscent of acts like Dive, The Klinik, and Clock DVA. Their music is eerie and hypnotizing, centered on dark and futuristic soundscapes with cinematic qualities, minimal rhythmic and obsessive structures and loops full tension…Zwaremachine deliver an interesting debut full of neo old-school galore.

Instead of focusing on post-punk inspired moments and noisy, industrial experiments like some of their peers, they follow a personal approach based on the use of synth sounds and minimalistic rhythmic patterns. Sometimes dark and menacing, sometimes funkier and full of groove, they offer a wide sound embracing many aspects of minimal electronics and old-school EBM. A welcome addiction to the resurgence of old-school motifs in modern elctro-industrial/EBM bands.”

Press Release: Arachnattack!

Arachnattack!

They Called It the Summer of Spiders…


What IS Project 26?

They called it The Summer of Spiders, and though there were those in later years who would later go on to question just how much of what people remembered had actually happened, for those who were there, that summer was one that no-one who lived through it would ever, ever forget…

In the small, sleepy Norfolk market town of Dyreham, something evil has been unleashed. When a crazed scientist unwittingly allows his army of genetically modified False Widow spiders to escape, it isn’t long before the whole town quickly comes under attack from his creations.

Meanwhile, as a local reporter begins an investigation into the scientific research institute known as Greenacres, he soon discovers the spiders are just one small part of a much bigger conspiracy…

Mark Woods is a U.K horror author responsible for the novels Time of Tides, Fear of the Dark and The Go-lem, and one of six authors who contributed towards the creation of the vampire novel, Feral Hearts. 

Arachnattack! is Part of Project 26, P26, a series of 26 books, each one representing a different letter in the alphabet, with each letter in turn represented a horror-related concept that starts with that letter. Arachnattack! can be purchased on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077KBD9QT
