We liked Depeche Mode when we were young.
Some of us didn't. Some liked the Beatles, some did not. Some loved
Rush, some still hate them. It's never worth a discussion. So what?
We all liked the Sisters, Mission,
Death and The Chameleons, but they're
not with us anymore. Today we try to concentrate on our music, and there
are and were so many songs and sounds that impressed us, that we, for
ourselves, can't speak about specific influences. Where are the critics?
It's their job!

Imagine yourself a triangular landscape with Christian
Death, And Also The Trees and the
Comsat Angels at the edges; "Murder
At The Registry" can be found in here. Somewhere. Sometimes. Roughly.
I mean, sometimes even far beyond these borders.

up with Mart in 1991, Tom found his creative counterpart to form the
band's nucleus as it still exists today. Numerous tape- releases brought
some attention within the fanzine-scene in Germany and France. An even
wider response was ignited by the release of the song "PUMP"
on MICK MERCER's compilation "HEX FILES-The Goth Bible" Vol.1
. This was 1997, when our second guitarplayer left us, but with Mel
on synths, it got even more interresting from now on: When supporting
bands like Two Witches or Christian Death, the band proved that they
were able to convince a wider audience without being well-known. After
a short "reconstruction"-pause at the end of '98 they were
complete again with Boris on drums, to prove our "live-ability"
revisited: Lots of gigs where done, also supporting bands from abroad,
eg. Christian Death.
in summer 2000 "crisis" was on the flags again: The desatrous
end of Leipzig's "Pfingstreffen" ignited new discussions about
the music as such and if it's worth it to stay within the scene. This
ended up in another split, again reducing the band to its nucleus.
But there where so many requests for playing gigs, that they just couldn't
stop. A new line-up for the stage was recruited with Andrea & Carsten
and the band headlined or co-headlined several festivals like "Under
Cover Of Darkness" in 2001 and 2002 or "Herbstnaechte"
in 2001. Eventually, the spark lit the flame
and now it's time
to present some new recording to show them:
This is just the beginning!

At The Registry's first "proper" album CD "Filed:
`93 - `03" is a compilation of their demos and compilation
contributions, some of which have been rerecorded especially for this
release. Noone can resist the driving madness of dancefloor smashers
like "Cupido", "The Stolen Photograph" or the outrageous
"The Creatures Are Having Fun With The Hollywood Dreamblaster"...
give in and go insane!
The album is being welcomed with dozens of release parties in dedicated
Goth / Deathrock clubs all over Europe and the United States, and will
be introduced live, amongst other occasions, at this year's JUDGEMENT
DAY Festival, where MATR will perform as co-headliners.
