New Dark Age vol.3


New Dark Age vol3 -Various

This is the third installment in the succesful New Dark Age compilation series of the German label Strobelight Records, and this double cd has been put full with gothrock, deathrock, batcave and postpunk again.

MEPHISTO WALZ EXCLUSIVELY present an absolute sensation: a merge-version of their cult classic ALLE IN ASCHE, where Bari-bari has included the voices of both Jorg (80's) and Christianna (90's), and mastered everything at state-of-the-art level. This is the thing. Pass a handkerchief, please...

FAITH AND THE MUSE provide a driving and exclusive live-version of their deathrock stomper PLAGUE DANCE which they've recorded in Leipzig / Germany.

Our favourite melancho-power-gothband FRANK THE BAPTIST from San Diego / USA please us all with their storming brandnew track called EVER which makes it even harder to endure the remaining days until we can see them again since the headlining at the Parkbühne at this year's WAVE-GOTIK-TREFFEN in Leipzig seemed great...

The unbelievable MIGUEL AND THE LIVING DEAD, who've won over the entire audience just like that at this year's JUDGEMENT DAY festival only recently, announce their upcoming debut album "ALARM!!!" with their terrific horrorbilly-funeraldeathrock romance GRAVEYARD LOVE SONG.

Also the fantastic superhits by RADIO SCARLET, SOULSCAPE, SCARLET'S REMAINS, UNINVITED GUEST and numerous other acts of which some are exciting newcomers (such as the chameleonesque HEARTS FAIL, or ex-SIGLO XX band UNDER A PURPLE SKY, or the joydivisionesque / interpolesque JOY DISASTER), and others well established favourites (such as IKON, AUSGANG or EVA O.) promise some exhausting times in the world's blackcool clubs.


BLOODY DEAD AND SEXY is present with CHEEKS and this great band can be seen in The Netherlands the upcoming weekend at P60 in Amsterdam, together with ZOMBINA & The SKELETONES and ASRAI. Tickets: http://www.p60.nl

Loads of GOTH, loads of DEATHROCK, loads of STUFF LIKE AND UNLIKE THAT, from all over the place, and everything's super.

Once more: enjoy!
