CRUSADE (named in honour of cult science fiction board game Space Crusade from the 1980's) is a club night which plays dark, hard, electronic dance music of all genres!!! EBM // PSYTRANCE // DARK TRANCE // HARD DANCE // ELECTRO INDUSTRIAL // EUPHORIC DANCE among others, all have a place here! In short, if you like your clubbing experience to be fast, hard and electronic, you will love it! Tonight is our launch party, and we have Germany's awesome rising stars of the EBM scene SKYLA VERTEX (featuring Gregor Beyerle of NACHTMAHR and formerly of REAPER and MODULATE) performing live! Also, London's very own FUTURE FRENETIC will be ripping it up! DJs TO BE ANNOUNCED AS TIME GOES BY Admission is only £5 (advance tickets are available from www.eeetickets.com/crusade - make sure you arrive before midnight if you want to pay on the door though!) ABOUT SKYLA VERTEX: The year 2008. Old principles have to fall… Skyla Vertex is the Brainchild of Greg, who may be best known for his involvements with scene legends MODULATE and REAPER and Alex, a lyricist, singer and illustrator from a Rock background. Their self-proclaimed task is to combine an intellectual claim with hard electronic dance music - to assimilate the dancefloors of the world. Madness? ...one might say, but they call it "Skyla Vertex". Their debut album "URWERK" which was released on INFACTED RECORDINGS (Europe) and METROPOLIS (USA/RoW) in April 2012 received high praise and 9/10 ratings from prestigious magazines like ZILLO and SONIC SEDUCER and also Online from e.g. BRUTAL RESONANCE and VIVAMUSIC. Based on the success of the Album, Skyla Vertex are highly sought-after remixers who already worked with SANTA HATES YOU, REAPER, ORANGE SECTOR, SHIV-R, FREAKANGEL, AIRCRASH BUREAU, DIORAMA AND SURGYN. ...the war of senses has been declared. ABOUT THE NAME: Even though it was a rather random creation, the name mirrors the message they wanted to deliver: "Skyla" can be found in the swedish language and can be translated as "to hide", or "to bury"; The word "Vertex" is latin and is used to describe a turning point in geometric terminology, it can also be translated as "mesh" or "nodal point". Thus, Skyla Vertex takes its creative power from all the unknown corners of mind, unusual perspectives and the last shelter of soul: The insanity.
April is our anniversary month, and this time we are celebrating 8 years of music events that brought dozens of bands to our city. The festival our audience has been requesting for a long time will take place this spring. The Austrian Imperial Industrial band Nachtmahr will once again invade our beloved venue Forbrændingen as headliner of this festival, accompanied by the German comets Skyla Vertex, and 1 or 2 more bands to be confirmed very soon. Nachtmahr: The Austrian band Nachtmahr started hostilities in 2007. Nachtmahr played their first show at WGT in Leipzig. Since then they took the scene by storm. By the time the first album, "Feuer Frei", was released Nachtmahr held a high position in our scene. Since then Nachtmahr have released 4 albums in total, featuring hard-hitters such as "Feuer Frei", "Katharsis", "Tanzdikator", "Vendetta", "War on the Dancefloor", "Wir Schreiben Geschichte", "Rise and Fall", "Can You Feel the Beat?". A few weeks ago Nachtmahr released their 4th album called "Veni Vidi Vici". The album was released as a double CD in a smooth book, a real collectors item, and of course packed with potential club hits and floor fillers. Skyla Vertex: The Tanzdiktator is coming with reinforcements from Germany: Skyla Vertex is coming along for this exclusive Scandinavian show at Forbrændingen. Their debut album called "Urwerk" is released by the famous label Infacted Recordings (also the home of Grendel, Orange Sector, X-Marks The Pedwalk, Lights Of Euphoria and many others). Skyla Vertex plays harsh and danceable EBM with great melodies that fits for the dancefloor. With its main member also involved in Modulate and Reaper, this band is without a doubt looking at a bright future. See one of the best newcomers of 2012 for the first time in Scandinavia in April!
