5.21.09 Das Ich, Soil & Eclipse w/ Red This Ever
Das Ich (DE)
Das Ich is a German electronic music group formed in 1989. The group, fronted by Stefan Ackermann and Bruno Kramm, were one of the prominent founders of and contributors to "Neue Deutsche Todeskunst" (New German Death Art) a musical movement in the early 1990s. The German term das Ich makes reference to the Freudian concept James Strachey translated as "ego".
Their first full-length album, Die Propheten, was released in Germany in 1991 and was reissued in the US in 1997, selling over thirty thousand copies. In 1996, the album Egodram saw the group moving towards a more rhythmic, industrial dance-oriented sound, resulting in the club singles "Kindgott" and "Destillat". The album was followed by an American tour in 1996 and 1997. This was followed by 1998's Morgue, a concept album based on the work of Gottfried Benn.
In 1999 they released a remix album, Re-Laborat, that included work done by popular electro-industrial bands. Bruno Kramm released his solo spin off Coeur in 2000.
In 2001, Das Ich released the album Antichrist, which is a critical reflection on world politics. In 2002 the Best Of Album Relikt was released. In 2004 they released the double album LAVA:glut and LAVA:asche, and in 2006 they released an additional dual album, Cabaret and Varieté, and a new DVD, Panopticum.
The band is famous around the world, spreading their unique style with many tours in countries such as Russia, Israel, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Japan and the United States.
Das Ich are in the middle of finishing up their upcoming album, "Kannibale".
Soil and Eclipse (US)
Soil and Eclipse began in March of 1996, originally under the name Oracle of Delphi. The band was formed in Hawaii when vocalist Jay Tye and G.W. Childs IV began collaborating in an effort to fill their local music scene with a more eclectic sound. Though the two were in the US Army at the time, they worked together in their free time to perform live shows. Their many local performances led to a following among Hawaiian goth enthusiasts.
In January of 1997, Jay and G.W. were contacted by COP International, who had heard their demo tape, and was interested in signing the band. After a few months of communication and a trip to meet the minds behind COP, a contract was negotiated and signed. After a short time of debate amongst the bandmates, a new name for the band was chosen -Soil and Eclipse. Jay and G.W. felt that the new name better suited the style of music, given its ambient nature.
Red This Ever (FR)
"A great deal of synthpop music in this day and age seems to follow a rather simplistic and familiar template, focusing on a very literal interpretation of the genre by using primarily (if not exclusively) synthesizers and pop music structures to create a sound that is instantly recognizable and accessible. Leave it to Baltimore, MD's Red This Ever to turn those conventions around and return to an aesthetic more in line with the genre's beginnings in the '80s. The five members of this band bring a wide range of influences, from harder-edged industrial like Ministry and Skinny Puppy to the softer and more melodic sounds of Wolfsheim and Depeche Mode. With each band member contributing to the electronics, creating a collective sound that defies strict categorization. Are they a synthpop band with guitars, or are they a rock band with synths? The answer would be yes: they are these things, and more." - Ilker Yucel, Regen Magazine.
