Electro-Pop, Future Pop,
SEELENNACHT - this is electronic music with thoughtfulness, diction and esprit. The elaborated, catchy sound combining with the exceptional, sonorous voice fascinates immediately. Besides singer and songwriter Marc Ziegler writes all lyrics an compositions on his own and founded the project in the year 2008.
Catchy melodies, profound lyrics, danceable rhythms and artistical aspiration in an electronic style determine Seelennacht and create a sound experience with a difference. Powerful club songs meet flattering ballads and intensively catchy Synthpop songs. At the same time the artist's characterful voice will capture your imagination in a charismatic manner.
Fundamentally influenced by visionary authors like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, we are in conformity with our outline of steampunk. Everyone's longings and dreams are equally essential aspects of the content as the themes: Departure, recommencement, romance and self-reflection. Seelennacht combines all these elements with the spirit of the industrial revolution and German romanticism.
The live concept is realized with René-Eric Widukind on the keyboard and partially with additional changing guest musicians.
SEELENNACHT played in many renowed festivals, especially the WGT of Leipzig in 2018 and will play at the Amphi Fest of Cologne on Summer of 2019.
The project was born on 1998 in Spain in Barcelona by the hand of InqUesT and Blackend with the name ‘Morbid Mind’.
With experimenter feel and focused towards electro-industrial sounds; they self-produced some tapes that are distributed by his circle of friendship, without major impact.
On the year 2003 the band changes its name to 'LARVA'. Due to the technical, social and ideological changes in the band.
Now more involved in social topics and with a more powerful sound; more noises and hardness, without losing an apex of his darkness.
In the beginning of 2006 the formation had enriched by the contribution of two new members (M.L. and Anoxia).

Goth-Rock, New Wave
Founded in 1988 by the vocalist and composer Raytan and the vocalist and keyboardist Heidi under the first name "The Actuaries Tables",SWAN DEATH has des influences rock symphonique,new wave et psychedelique.They played in Europe,North Africa,Scandinavia.They're based in Belgium but their members have various origins(Scotland,Spain,Belgium,Netherlands,Greece,Congo,Vietnam)
The band had tours between 1993 and 2009 with some of the greatest international bands like UMBRA ET IMAGO, LACRIMOSA or DEINE LAKAÏEN.
At the crossroads of shamanic rhythms and soothing atmospheres, MANTRA alternates between the frenzy of metal and the patience of progressive rock. The quartet uses the power of sound on the soul and the flesh to provide mesmerizing and transcendental music.
The compositions of Mantra are meant to be subtle and shamanic. The musical work is thought on both visual and auditive aspects: on stage, the composition is sublimated in a musical and mystical ritual, interspersed with fractal visualizations.
Following the completion of “Into the Light“, and a series of tours across France, the band unfolds in 2016 its second meditative opus : a concept-album entitled “Laniakea” set in the prehistoric ages, released on October 21st via the label Finisterian Dead End and distributed in France by Season of Mist and in the UK by Code 7.
Driven by imposing tribal polyrhythmic patterns, ‘Laniakea‘ is a complex and immersive album. The band enables the listener to witness the birth of God in the ethereal vapor of the hallucinatory substances consumed by the first men. The result is an epic album, with incredibly brilliant production, where technical mastery is combined with nuance to build a true musical journey.
Recorded at Brown Bear Recording studio and mastered at Master Lab Systems, the new album will definitely have a unique sound, which should highlight the musical universe of the band, where the primitive rhythms of the first Men are progressively overthrown by earthquakes of distortion, that sound both mystic and modern.
MANTRA has been one of the most acclaimedd band of the HellFest last year in 2017.
We are the French band RED GORDON (Tao, Aurélien, Boris, Maël) and maybe we don't know very well how to write a biography but we'll try nevertheless.
Named from a beer not very awesome, the band was created beginning of 2017 and found its current lineup in SEptember 2017, when we made our first shows followed by the release of our first EP "Smoke River".
It's not easy for us to tell the style of our music but we think that it's less or more hardcore/groove metal.
In fact RED GORDON is a Metal band with Neo, Groove and Hardcore influence.
Anyway what we want is enjoying and making cool music.
