Snuff movies, drugs, jail-time and Baader Meinhof? How fucking long have you been drinking?! You no longer want to waste your time? There's nothing better you can do: the ESSENCE OF MIND gang will help you remembering who you were before... Are you ready to be a part of a game? Join them in their urban techno body guerrilla and throw some shit on the walls. With their powerful and aggressive “Insurrection”, the Norwegian duo ESSENCE OF MIND does not bother about wars or politics, instead they would rather spit their rage against human's stupidity and brainlessness. 

Between fiction and reality, their engaged music hits you straight in the face and condemns acts and behaviours that we sadly enough encounter all the time in our daily lives. It is definitely not everyday that Norway bears a new electronic fruit. However, history has shown us that with bands like APOPTYGMA BERZERK, ICON OF COIL or yet COMBICHRIST, the Norwegian seal is a guarantee for skill and quality. Created in the spring of 2006, Oslo's up-and-coming electro duo ESSENCE OF MIND will certainly maintain the excellence we have come to expect from Norwegian electronics! Their hard-hitting sonic assaults combine modern techno body music, pumping EBM bass-lines, catchy synth melodies and strong powerful vocals. Their straight in your face attitude and high-energy music will rapidly boost their ascension to the top. 



The album is also available as a deluxe 2CD carton box with a bonus disc including several exclusive bonus tracks and remixes by AUTODAFEH, IMPLANT, DIFFUZION, DISKONNEKTED, CRISK, DIRECTION NORTH, RED 7 etc.

Continuing the tradition started with the KMFDM Classic releases the accompanying booklets for the Extra series are packed with exciting material. Highlights include cover art from every album and single from which cuts were taken (most covers are by famed KMFDM cohort Brute!) and never before seen photos of the band. As it has been with all the KMFDM re-releases, work on this series, from the remastering to the packaging, has been done with the highest level of participation from Sascha K., KMFDM's leader and founder.

Extra Volume 1 is comprised of songs from the Z-Records release of the What Do You Know Deutschland? album in 1986 to the Money single in 1992. This two disc set houses 27 tracks, over 2 hours and 18 minutes of music. Extra Vol. 1 features the original 12" mixes of tons of KMFDM hits: "Godlike", "Money", "Naïve", "More & Faster", "Vogue", "Sex on the Flag", "Virus", "Don't Blow Your Top", "Split" and more!

Numbers Night Club



Writer’s Journal:  An Evening with Red Flag | a Conversation with Chris Reynolds

It was a wet and rainy evening in Houston. A day perfectly fit for the song “Pouring rain”. The weather was enough to drive any casual Red Flag fan back to their homes for hot chocolate while playing the “Naive Art” album on repeat as they stay inside. But not us! We wouldn’t dare allow Mother Nature to keep us from the dingy confines of Numbers Night Club. I blasted “Born Again” on my way to the venue to set the mood.  Besides being a fan, the curiosity alone was enough to have me tread through the wet Houston streets to get there. I was determined to see a show which for me had a lot of unanswered questions…

How will Chris‘s voice sound live? Who will assist with live parts? What will the set-list entail?  These among many more questions filled my head as I drove to the venue.  

Getting there was part of the adventure. I was in awe to see fans standing outside of Numbers in the rain under a leaky tarp; waiting for the doors to open. Once inside, Guest DJ Breye7x was spinning some great tracks which made the atmosphere all the more electric.

Phase Theory hit the stage their first public performance and proved to be a great opening act as they wowed the crowd with dark entrancing songs.  Vocalist Kirk Graham seemingly had the crowd under his spell with his intense stare as he sang in a monotone voice. Bassist Jeremiah Saint was entertaining to watch pounding on his bass while clad in make up and a gas mask. Paul Fredrick; known around here for being the vocalist of the band Asmodeus X; pounded on the drum pads as Jonathan Kramm manned the programming and keyboards.  After about a 45 minute set; Phase Theory ended it with their splendid rendition of Depeche Mode’s “Policy of Truth”.

Red Flag went on around 11p.m. with Kirk on synths and Paul on the pads.  Chris entered the stage through a thick cloud of fog and was met by a roar of applause.  He performed every thing from "Doom and Gloom" to “I See You” and the older stuff such as "If I Ever". Chris performed until his voice gave out on him; asking the crowd finish the last song of his set “Russian Radio”.  When the set was finished everyone knew that Chris would not be returning to the stage for an encore. Yet, he was still given applause worthy of one. It seemed the crowd appreciated that Chris put everything he had into the set. He did not try to hide the fact that he had a sore throat.  He did not seem concerned with sounding perfect as he was with making sure that the fans who braved the elements got their money’s worth.

After the show, I was able to sit down with Chris and congratulate him on the success of the album “Born Again” and see how things have transpired since last year’s interview.  I asked him if he had been concerned with the way he sounded on stage.  “No, I am more concerned with being genuine in my performance and giving my best efforts, rather than trying to be perfect out there.”, explained Chris. By watching his performance, I could tell.  This past year or so has been a real triumph for him. Not only has Chris resurrected Red Flag, he did so by creating instantly one of the best Red Flag albums to date. I would not count on “Born Again” being the swan song either. Chris has also announced that he has a new album in the works titled " Let it Begin". You can get more details by streaming his MP3 press announcement here at Grave concerns.  Stay Tuned!
