Covenant - Modern Ruin - ????
Still no news of the new album from Covenant, still waiting for it. Loved the live hearings of new songs "Dynamo Clock" and "I Close My Eyes" possibly tentitavely titled for the upcoming album. 2009 was the year it was expected to have been released, but patience is needed. I'm sure it'll be much worth the wait.
New single "Lightbringer" and remix song "Wir sind die Nacht" announced. Release dates for the single and album to follow.
She Wants Revenge - ???? - ????
The album is near completion, no singles have been announced yet. Following DJAdam12's twitter for the latest news.
VNV Nation - Crossing The Divide - ????
Same story as Covenant. The EP Crossing The Divide is much anticipated, but the release date has been pushed back over and over again. The release of Of Faith, Power and Glory wasn't as brilliant an album as expected from the mighty duo, but it's positive sound and upbeat hits sure put the "uplifting" back in uplifting trance. Prefering their edgier sound, I cannot wait for the remixes and B-sides of this EP to rekindle my adoration for the VNV Nation I fell in love with. In saying that, the AFI remix mentioned I can do without. Cannot stand them or Blaqk Audio. Awful...
Hocico - Tiempos de Furia - October 1st, 2010
Hocico return with a new album, sounds promising. Personally expect a great album after the ok track Dog Eat Dog.
Killing Joke - Absolute Dissent - September 27th, 2010
The release of their single was mildly good, some really nice, some really obscure. The album is announced and ready, Killing Joke are showing they're still going strong. I must check it out.
Funker Vogt - Arising Hero - ????
Completing what began in 1998 with the single “Tragic Hero” followed by the CD “Fallen Hero” in 2005, “Arising Hero” is the third and final part of the trilogy.
Single name or album name: this should be good.
:Wumpscut: - :Siamese: - April 13th, 2010
Also has been released this year, still need to check out. Didn't listen to much after a few song listens.
Project Pitchfork - Continuum Ride - August 2nd, 2010.
Yes it's been released, I still need to check it out. I'm loving Full Contact more than any song of their recent releases. Great music.
Deine Lakaien - Indicator - September 17th, 2010
Classically trained avant-garde group Deine Lakaien has returned with another offering, titled "Indicator" which faces release this month! After two listens of their single "Gone" I knew I had to buy the single which includes a remix, a b-side and the previously released "A Fish Called Prince" - Looking forward to the new album, I heavily enjoy their work.
Combichrist - Making Monsters - September 28th, 2010
Feeling reluctant to keep up to date with Combichrist, but they still remain a good group to dance to. The new album must've leaked, but I never take a complete album listen until it's release - Why spoil it? A good song I've heard was Fuckmachine from this album, typical Combichrist style song but very nice.
The Birthday Massacre - Pins & Needles - September 14th, 2010
Very nice band, don't listen to them much since their first two albums, but this time around I want to hear how they've developed since "Blue" and "Lover's End" type songs.
