Available now in pre-order: debut album MIND:STATE
MIND:STATE's debut EP "bbbcx2" and the band's various compilation appearances have whet your appetite for moreů Today we can proudly announce that the recordings for the "Decayed, Rebuilt" album are done and that the album's release is scheduled for February 23rd 2007. It is true that on many occasions MIND:STATE received eloquent comparisons with prestigious bands in the likes of VNV NATION, NAMNAMBULU and especially ASSEMBLAGE 23. But on "Decayed, Rebuilt', Per Holmström also reveals a much harder edge with straight EBM tracks like "Bounty Hunter" or yet "Bloodlines". He also explores more icy territories on the dark low tempo and KLINIK-al "Nothing Remains" to eventually close the album with the bombastic Swedish song, "Din Värld".
Add to this some remarkable guest vocal contributions including a splendid duet with I:SCINTILLA's lead singer Brittany Bindrim on the trancey and very expressive "This Above All", some harder punkish chaotic backings from Chris Koch of CRISK on "Nothing But A Heartbeat" and harsher dual vocals from Len Lemeire (IMPLANT) who added some venom on "Confession" and especially on the instant club hit "Black Angel". We get the confirmation that diversity is guaranteed on this debut album that will appeal to the harder elektro community as well as to the fans of soulful melodic electronics with a sharp edge.
It is by combining dark melodies, hard danceable electronics and emotional vocals that our Swedish artist polished and developed the MIND:STATE trademark sound. And by teaming up in studio with Belgian producer Len Lemeire (ANNE CLARK, IMPLANT, UNTER NULL, etc.), MIND:STATE has been able to deepen his song atmospheres while reinforcing the powerful dynamics of his sequences for a kicking result that will simply blow everyone away. The limited carton box edition of the album includes, in addition to the usual goodies (poster, photos, etc.), a 13-track bonus disc featuring 2 exclusive non-album songs ("Mother Father" and "Regret") and remixes from bands like LOWE, CULTUR KÜLTUR, MNEMONIC, DISKONNEKTED, TEMPLE OF TEARS, GOD'S OWN MEDICINE, GOD'S BOW, HOPELESS, TECNOMAN, B.A.T.T.L., SKOYZ.
