The Double Door, Chicago, IL – Thursday, 09/24/2015
ColdWaves IV


Festival events are nothing new, even in a niche scene such as the industrial/electro/goth scene; however, few seem to possess so focused a sense of purpose as Chicago’s ColdWaves. Since 2012, the Windy City has hosted this momentous event as not only a celebration of the life and music of Jamie Duffy, one of Chicago’s most revered musicians and sound engineers, but also to shed a bright light on suicide and the pressures that lead many to take their own lives. With the participation of the Hope for the Day foundation for suicide prevention, ColdWaves has grown from a tribute concert to become one of the most emotionally charged and poignant festival events in the underground music scene.

Harbor East Landmark Theaters, Baltimore, MD – 09/06/2015
Alleluia! The Devil


Once upon a time, just going to the movies was an event in and of itself; from the traditional snacks of peanuts and popcorn sold and passed around like at a sporting event to the opening reels of trailers for upcoming features, from the double bill of multiple features to the introductory overtures and intermissions akin to a musical concert, going to the movies was as special an engagement as any. In the age of the multiplex and home theater systems, this has become something of a lost art. Enter the creative team of writer/producer/artist/performer Terrance Zdunich and director Darren Lynn Bousman, who with a multifaceted and vast assortment of collaborators has brought us the subversive, campy, and fantastical musical productions of Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil’s Carnival. Blending elements of horror, sci-fi, and goth/industrial fashion and music, these two outings have garnered a considerable fan base that extends across various genres and age groups.

Starting up a new website is no easy task, even for a veteran like Patrik Lindström, co-founder of prominent netzine Brutal Resonance, but with Electroracle.com, he is making strides to create and instill a greater sense of community for the electro/industrial music scene.

KMFDM - Salvation Tour 2015


There are few things more gratifying than when a band survives for any length of time despite overwhelming opposition from the natural flow of time – a flow that brings with it changes in technology, the industry, and the very audience. For over three decades, the Ultra-Heavy Beat has been going strong and with the 2015 Salvation tour, KMFDM is showing no signs of losing steam any time soon. [..]

ColdWaves IV


When ReGen Magazine published its listing of the Top 20 Albums of 2014, featuring Cocksure’s much revered TVMALSV debut in the #2 position, Jason Novak referred to the list as “the stuff of intelligence, taste, and a great attitude towards edgy and dark music, crossing through different styles and sounds, all the while respecting a common theme.” This writer can think of no better description for a certain music festival spearheaded by Novak and WTII Records’ David Schock, held in Chicago every September as a celebration of the life of producer/musician Jamie Duffy and the music he loved and helped to create: ColdWaves.

At the beginning of every year, when the time for reflection on the past 12 months is still very much in the minds of many, ReGen Magazine offers its readers a list of 20 Albums voted on by the staff to be the best of the year. However, over the course of the last decade (if not longer), as the means for artists to distribute their music more directly to a wider audience, coupled with the growing demands of that audience for more music to enjoy and consume, the album as a format has taken something of a backseat to the shorter, less cumbersome EP. While not necessarily less substantive in terms of the content presented by the musicians and producers, although certainly offering less material in a shorter time for lower prices… or if not necessarily less material, as evidenced by the abundance of the still popular supplement of remixes, then less original or “new” material. Some use the EP format in lieu of the album in order to maintain a consistent and healthy outflow of material to sate the demands of the audience, releasing as many as three or four EPs in the span of a year, while others take the approach that EPs are a perfect medium to build interest – hype, if you will – in a larger and fuller presentation currently in progress. Both directions offer pragmatic alternatives to the album format to still provide the fans with more bang for their bucks, and 2014 was in no shortage of EP releases from many a prominent act.
So in a marginal change of pace, ReGen Magazine is proud to offer the Top 10 EPs of 2014 – our own shorter companion to the article celebrating the year’s best albums.

As is customary – and perhaps inevitable – when each New Year begins, people often look back on the preceding 12 months, reflecting on the way we live our lives and on ways to improve ourselves as time progresses. Among the many ways people reminisce is in formulating lists of the best moments of the last year, and ReGen Magazine is no exception. Therefore, we are proud to present to our readers ReGen‘s Top 20 Albums of 2014, offering a helping of those albums that made a significant impact on music.
For ReGen‘s staff, it couldn’t get much better than these albums, the crème de la crème of creativity and artistic expression in industrial/goth/electro music.
We at ReGen Magazine truly hope that you enjoy our list of the Top 20 Albums of 2014.
