Going strong for 30 years, Suicide Commando have not only been pioneers of the harder Electro genre, but continue being innovators up to this very day.
Formed in summer 1986 by Johan van Roy, the band made a name for itself through a series of self-released tapes from the late Eighties to the early Nineties. When the group released its first full-length CD "Critical Stage" in 1994, it soon would evolve into one of the most popular and important acts of the scene.
On this and all of the subsequent releases, Van Roy explores the dark side of humanity with lashing beats, haunting atmospheric electronics and an addictively psychotic and relentlessly aggressive vocal style. With eternal club hits, such as the seminal "See You In Hell" or "Hellraiser" and an impressive roster of successful album releases, from the classics "Mindstrip", "Axis Of Evil", "Bind, Torture, Kill" and "Implements Of Hell" to the apocalyptic 2013-masterpiece "When Evil Speaks", Suicide Commando continue to be genre-defining while always evolving their very own trademark sound of synthetically-induced mayhem.
They are a regular guest at the biggest scene-related festivals around the world and are renowned for their energetic stage performance. With an ever-growing rabid fan base at their back, Suicide Commando are one of the most popular live acts of the entire scene.
The band is currently working on the next album and, judging from the sold-out advance single "The Pain That You Like", it will be nothing short of another Hard-Electro-milestone.
From the NJ/NYC's Underground Music Scene comes Xentrifuge, a brutal assault of Harsh Industrial/Dark Electro, constructed by the collectively innovative minds of Chris X and Lisa Hellen.
Xentrifuge brings a groundbreaking blend of Industrial-based sound, fused with noise, and a touch of heavy guitar work to create a hauntingly melodic, yet raw and unforgiving product.
✖Chris X started Xentrifuge in 2005 - a blend of Harsh Industrial and Dark Electro.
✖In 2007, "Light Extinguished" was released on Noitekk/Black Rain Media, Gravitator, and COP Int. (Peaking at number six on the DAC, Xentrifuge established a loyal international following).
✖In 2009, Xentrifuge continued to break boundaries. The highly anticipated second album "Converting Infinity", was a hit with fans and the world-wide industrial music scene.
Over the years, Chris X worked with a variety of live artists, but by 2012 realized something more stable was needed and Lisa Hellen quickly became an integral part of the band.
Always evolving, in 2014 Xentrifuge returned with a barrage of singles and remixes as well as live performances.
The duo released the single, "Machine Winter" in 2016 which immediately became a fan favorite. A final version of the song will appear on the upcoming full-length album, "Desensitized Parallels" due out early 2018 - available worldwide via Cleopatra Records.
Xentrifuge brings high energy and ravenous presence to the stage and infects the crowd with a raw, relentless, yet unique package for fans of the dance-floor and mosh-pit alike!
