We have added 2 new single releases on our Bandcamp page: a new single (their first in 12 years !) from the Swedish EBM cult act POUPPÉE FABRIKK + a brand new single from the Norwegian EBM/Dark Techno sensation KANT KINO.
The KANT KINO single holds a new edit with an extra remix and demo version of the hit "Just For The Comfort Of Sleep". The POUPPÉE FABRIKK single holds a 12 remix and reworks by their EBM buddies of SPETSNAZ, AUTODAFEH and POLYFUSE.
Note that we also added KANT KINO's most recent album "Father Worked In Industry" as a Bandcamp download in 2 versions with the bonus tracks version including extra visuals for download.
Only the KANT KINO single is also out on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and related. The POUPPEE FABRIKK EP will be on the other download platforms in the next few days.
As Freakangel begins slowly to introduce their third record, we feel our fans should know that fr0zen has stepped down as our live keyboardist. We are grateful for his contribution to the band. Also we would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years and we are looking forward to playing for you again soon.

Available now is the brand new video for Cynical Existence. "I'm Broken" was produced by Ronnell Elkins and David S. Foulk for Arris Productions. The track was taken from Cynical Existence's debut album "Come out and play" which is out now via iTunes, Amazon USA, Amazon UK and Amazon DE. If you prefer CDs, there's a CD and 2CD box available in the Alfa Matrix webshop.
According to Schwarzblut: 'In life, a journey is just as important as its destination'. That's why through a series of 6 video's, the band will give you an insight into the creation of their 3rd album. This first episode focusses on the selection and use of historical poetry. Schwarzblut's upcoming album is expected Spring 2014 on Alfa Matrix. Stay connected to Schwarzblut on Facebook or Twitter.
We have launched the pre-sales for the brand new compilation series entirely and exclusively devoted to bands with female lead vocalists: "Absolute Grrrls Manifesto [chapter 1]". "Absolute Grrrls Manifesto [chapter 1]" is a deluxe 4CD compilation (see artwork above) and is bound to become a must-have, just like the "Endzeit Bunkertracks" series has become the leading one in its genre.
You can now visit a dedicated page for the compilation project: www.alfa-matrix.com/manifesto1/ . On the website you cannot only see the complete list of the 111 bands featured on this release but also read a manifesto which Seba Dolimont, A&R at Alfa Matrix, wrote together with various front women of bands that joined the project.
The compilation mixes electro, EBM, gothic rock, synth pop, new wave, metal, industrial, techno... and is a good guide to know what female fronted bands are out there.
To celebrate their first 5 years of existence, Schwarzblut has released a 24 page limited edition photo book. This anniversary gem catches the band in full color at precious moments during live shows, album recordings, on the road and in the studio. The book is available in 2 sizes. The small edition measures 14x14cm and costs € 15,- (+ P&P). The large one is 30x30cm and is available for € 45,-. (+ P&P). Order your copy at www.schwarzblut.com
