Aaimon - Flatliner

Aaimon - Flatliner (2012)

∆Aimon, Aaimon or maybe you want to call them Daimon? It doesn't really matter. It's another one of Artoffact Records great releases! And maybe the nicest artwork of 2012. This is the first Witch house record I actually bought. I have been dowloading a great bit of Witch house releases from Bandcamp, just to check out what the fuzz was about. I don't like most of them, but there surely is some hidden gems out there! The thing I like about Aaimon is that they have vocals. I'm not to keen on instrumental music, which most of the Witch house stuff I found has been. This CD is a re-release of a six song vinyl EP, now packed with ten bonus tracks. Great value for money! There's both Witch hous remixes like "Current (▲NDRΛS Remix)" and "Mirrors Fade (Ceremonal Dagger Remix)", and some remixes by industrial bands like "Black Cross (Dead When I Found Her Remix)", "Flatliner (Encephalon Remix)" and "Flatliner (Haujobb Remix)".

Legend - Fearless

Legend - Fearless (2012)

This album is supposed to be the best electronic newcomer of the year. It's definately the grower of the year for me. It's getting better and better by each listen. But I rank Continues - "Continues" as the best newcomer of the year. Standout tracks are "Benjamite Bloodline", "City", "Runaway Train", "Sudden Stop", "Devil In Me", "Lust" - heck, almost all of the songs on this album are worth a mention!

Patenbrigade:Wolff - Baustopp!

Patenbrigade:Wolff - Baustopp!
(2012) Zweieck

A bit of an odd release from Patenbrigade:Wolff. It's basically an instrumental ambient, chill out, lounge and/or downbeat album. There are some unreleased songs, some well-known songs as well as some instrumental versions. The CD is a mix-CD with all the songs mixed into one long smooth mix. The Unrelated Bandcamp Digital Download, on the other hand, has all the songs with as stand alone tracks!

Autodafeh - Hunt For Glory

Autodafeh - Hunt For Glory 2008

Old school EBM is very popular these days, and some of the bands are really good. These Swedish Front 242-clones are one of my recent favourites. To be fair, they don't just sound like Front 242 - there's a part Nitzer Ebb to be heared as well!
