-PRESS RELEASE-

 

E-TROPOLIS FESTIVAL LINE-UP COMPLETE! 

 

With first-class artists like VNV NATION, PROJECT PITCHFORK, NACHTMAHR, ROTERSAND, AESTHETIC PERFECTION and many more the E-tropolis Festival geared up for its task as one of the pinnacle events of 2018. Again the 8th edition, taking place on 17th March 2018 at Turbinenhalle Oberhausen, waits on with a massive load of machine sounds under the roof! Thus it’s high time to wrap the current billing up nicely with the final remaining acts being announced today, as they are:

CHROM
SPARK!
JÄGER 90
LUCIFER’S AID

Barely any other formation went their way as consequently in recent years as CHROM. What started as a sleeper for connoisseurs and first-hour fans long since evolved to a full-grown phenomenon. The way Chris Marquis and Tom Winters fire off their hymnic electro pop always reveals itself in company of a compelling touch of understatement. Humble, down-to-earth and directly out of their lives!

 

Bring forth your dictionaries! This is not a drill! This time we play the big drum across language barriers. With SPARK! we present you a long overdue highly requested EBM-cannon from Scandinavia! The interesting part: their lyrics are performed completely in Swedish! Follow the command “alla på en gång!” (all at the same time!) and you are sincerely invited to dance your buffed boots ablaze. Let your body learn, for where the rhythm speaks its tongue of motion, the essence of EBM feels comfortably at home!

The latter is being cultivated by JÄGER 90 with continued devotion. Following the classic “old-school” trail, the duo from the baltic shore won’t shy away from chiseling their relentless beats into the crowd any given day, using live rounds of words, sequences and drums while (beneath the helmet) the order is clear: “put on your boots and dance”. We kindly recommend to obey! Forward March!

 

As we speak of heavy artillery: the final entry to the current programme has been marked by one-man army LUCIFER’S AID. Bleak, unforgiving electronica clashes with hypnotically pounding innovative beats. While calling the spirit of the early Belgian industrial scene, the project effectively originates from Sweden, where mastermind Calle Nilsson punishes his fully analogue machines for the gritty sinister bullwark breaking its unstoppable way since 2016!

 

So this is the full line-up as it has been revealed today:

 

VNV NATION
PROJECT PITCHFORK
NACHTMAHR + AESTHETIC PERFECTION
ROTERSAND + CHROM + FROZEN PLASMA
FORCED TO MODE + SPARK! + EISFABRIK
.COM/KILL + XOTOX
[20 Jahre XOTOX] + JÄGER 90
LUCIFER’S AID
