Chicago, IL, Lincoln Hall, 05/02/2013

 

Heralded by many as the best alternative to the alternative, IAMX made quite a splash this past spring on the band’s North American Animal Impulses tour. Not quite falling into any particular niche or category, Chris Corner and his band of musical misfits brought to the Windy City their own particular brand of rock & roll, complete with a visual extravaganza to rival the biggest selling acts in modern music. Capturing the performance was ReGen Magazine associate Katherine Gaines of Ambient Eye Photography, showing you just what you missed if you didn’t catch the visual tour-de-force that is an IAMX live performance.

Here, END: the DJ unveils his Top 10 best picks for music for the month of September, 2013!

On a special note from END: the DJ himself, “First of all, the Top 10 New Music has changed into the Best Picks – the reasons are the I didn’t really want to categorize all the new tunes that come my way with only 10, although those choices will still be featured. Secondly, I wanted to emphasize the newer releases aspect; no previous month’s picks will be shown on the following month, so make sure to catch up with all new music on the previous columns!”

The Church, Dallas, TX, 2013/08/29

 

Being at a Psyclon Nine show is like being at an insane asylum during Revelations. It sounds like constant screaming, banging on walls, and people being tortured. It embodies madness, mayhem, beauty, and intensity. And on August 29, Dallas, Texas witnessed it all when Psyclon Nine took the stage at the Church. Joining P9 on the Hellions of Hollywood tour was fellow California based act Dawn of Ashes. Together, the two groups created an atmosphere of chaos that filled the venue with liquid latex, blood and, spit. [..]

Coldwaves II Banner

 

When ColdWaves took place last year following the passing of Cracknation’s Jamie Duffy, it seemed an arduous undertaking. This year’s ColdWaves II, by comparison, seemed even more a daunting task, bringing together a wider range of acts to perform across not one but two evenings. And yet, somehow, the organizers – WTII Records’ David Schock and Cracknation’s Jason Novak – made it happen, bringing together some of the industrial rock underground’s best acts from past and present to once again pay tribute to Duffy’s memory and raise funds for the Hope for the Day charity for suicide prevention. With the first night’s lineup of bands including such heavy hitters as Skrew, 16volt, Iron Lung Corp., and Prong, it was clear that Friday, September 27 was devoted to the more metal side of the coldwave scene, leaving the following Saturday night to focus on a more varied and electronic set of acts.

Coldwaves II Banner

 

When Cracknation’s Jamie Duffy passed away in the summer of 2012, the underground industrial rock scene assembled to deliver one of the most momentous concert events in the genre’s history. In collaboration with the Hope for the Day charity for suicide prevention, the ColdWaves concert featured 11 bands and brought together both new acts and old, several of which reuniting for the first time in years, to pay tribute to Duffy’s memory and his legacy. It celebrated not only his life and music, but the lives and music shared among those in attendance, reminding many of what made the industrial rock and coldwave scene so special. [..]

Empire, Springfield, VA, 2013/09/01

 

Spellbound has been one of Washington, DC’s longest running club nights for the industrial/goth/electro scene, while the night’s host Lori Beth has been expanding her resume to become one of the top promoters for shows in the area. Having booked GoFight and I:Scintilla in August of 2012, it was perhaps only a matter of time before she would once again bring Chicago’s preeminent electroscuzz trio back to the Nation’s capital, especially now with the band’s debut Music for Military Torture having been released earlier this year.
