Song of the week 09/2016 – Aesthetic Perfection

Why this band and this song? To be honest, I don’t know. It was just the first thought I had. Aesthetic Perfection will be playing in May some old school shows and the made for the 3 shows in Hamburg, Gothenburg and Stockholm a poll for the setlist. Unfortunately this song is always at the bottom of the poll, although I think, it’s a very good song. But maybe they will it play anyway? Who knows. So here’s the song of the week 09/2016

Aesthetic Perfection – Filthy Design

This video was recorded in Hanover at the club Engel07. It was a small, but very nice club. Unfortunately they have now a different music programme, so that bands like AP will not play there again.

But I’m looking forward to the old school shows, it will be interesting to see them just with a microphone and a keyboard again like in the beginning. And I’m interested to see, how it will work with the newer songs.

Song of the week 08/2016 – The Exploding Boy

In a few days I’ll be in Helsinki at the Synapsi festival. There is also the band The Exploding Boy from Sweden. And therefore is the Song of the week

The Exploding Boy – 40 Days

I’ve seen them one time before, that was at the Amphi festival in Cologne. They played there at the Staatenhaus, which is/was very common for the bad acoustic. And in addition to this were at this day massive problems with the sound, not only at The Exploding Boy, also at other bands. So therefore was this not the best day and so I’m looking forward to see them now in Helsinki again.
I like this song, I think it’s the best from the album „Afterglow“. But you should also listen to the other songs, for example London or Desperados.

Song of the week 7/2016 – IAMX

This week I’ve chosen IAMX, because I’ll see them in 10 days again. This time in Helsinki. It’s my first trip to Finland and I’m very excited. And because I like the song so much, the song of the week is

IAMX – Happiness

It’s not just the dark, depressive atmosphere, it’s also the lyrics which I really love. My favourite song of this album.

Song of the week 6/2016 – Terrolokaust

Sometimes it’s really difficult to decide, which song will be the next „Song of the week“. Should I take a song from a band I listened a lot in the last time? Something new? Something old? Something totally different?
So this week a song of one of my favourite bands, which I miss very much. The guys are so nice and the shows are so great. I hope so much that I can see them in the next time again. And I’m looking forward to the new album! So, ladies and gentlemen, here’s

Terrolokaust with The Way It Must Be

This song was recorded 2014 during the tour together with Aesthetic Perfection and Faderhead. I was at 4 concerts of this tour (Frankfort, Hanover, Berlin and Hamburg) and had a very great time!

Song of the week 5/2016 – Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost – Mystify

Since the great Bynar mashup I heard in the last time a lot Paradise Lost songs. And I can’t explain why, but this song is still the whole time in my mind. I just love the melody and also the lyrics. And this song reminds me at a special person, although I also don’t know, why. But if I hear this song, I think of this person. And no, I’ll not publish the name here.

The song was released at the album „Symbol Of Life“, a fantastic album. Other great songs at this album are Isolate, Xavier, Perfect Mask and Erased.
