March 2013 – Hello, Friends! Finally we have completed a tracklist of our tribute- “Russian Industrial Tribute to Die Krupps” . This release is a first one in a row of releases by the “Artificial Sun” label, which is called “ Russian Industrial Tribute “ . So, the first place in the row is given to the legendary German industrial band – Die Krupps, who became pioneers in the genres as Industrial, EBM, Aggro Industrial and Industrial Metal along with world-famous bands such Throbbing Gristle, Einstürzende Neubauten, Nitzer Ebb,Front 424.
Their album “Volle Kraft Voraus” (1982) became a standard for a EBM music. Moreover, Die Krupps are known for recording a tribute to American thrash metal band Metallica, where their music is perfectly combined with electronic sounds.
Unfortunately, despite all the achievements, Die Krupps is not so well known in Russia, or at least they are not taken for the founders of industrial music. That became one of the main reasons to suggest Die Krupps music for the tribute and to try to introduce their music to Russian people some better.
Nowadays the tribute is being mastered by the Australian musician and sound-engineer Bones (Novakill, Deathly Quiet!), the artwork is being produced by the designer from Rybinsk, Eugenii Vorobev. The tribute will be released in a 2 CD format with a colorful cover. The participants of it are from 3 countries – Russia, Ukraine and Belorussia, which is the requirement for the tribute.
The release date is planned for May 2013.
