What more can be said about The Gothsicles? Since the 2006 release of the NESferatu debut album, the band has been on a steady upward trajectory that has shown no signs of slowing down.
As the next entry in ReGen Magazine‘s The 6ix List, Gabe Wilkinson delivers unto us a singularly unusual band. But who better to explain the Finnish Anti-Gnome musical mania that is TONTTU than the band’s leader, the TonttuFinderGeneral Hanz-Baal?
Hanz-Baal: TONTTU is the musical division of The Anti-Gnome Army playing exclusively Anti-Gnome/martial/industrial/neo-folk/metal. Our roots are in Finland and we have been raising awareness about gnomes and their evil schemes since 1997… some would say earlier, but would that make the difference? I think not, so let us leave it to that. After gnomes kidnapped our beloved founding member Petja, we reached this current form in 2013 when we activated again. [..]
Dave McAnaly is the man behind The Derision Cult, but he has not one, but at least four projects at any given time spanning many different genres. The Derision Cult is his project that fits our little genre in the world of music. McAnaly has been writing and recording since the early ’90s and this writer has had the privilege of working with him in Microwaved. On February 18, he released No Esteemed Deeds; here, he speaks with us about the thought process behind the album, leading into how his 6ix List relates to his latest album.
Venezuelan electro producer Carlos Henriquez checks in with ReGen Magazine for our second entry in The 6ix List. Writing dark techno and EBM, his project NOUSIA had made waves in the underground. See what makes him tick and what influenced him to create the music you hear today.
The divide between artist and audience has seemingly become thinner than ever thanks to the advent of social media and similar ways in which technology has enabled people to communicate more readily. Following this line of thinking, ReGen correspondent Gabe Wilkinson presents The 6ix List – a series of three questions, each with six answers, posed to select artists in an effort to allow you, the audience, to peer into the minds of those who create music in our scene.
For our first entry in this new feature, Gabe spoke with Mark Alan Miller of the trailblazing industrial act Out Out. Miller gives us some insights into his latest musical creation, Ridotto, before jumping headfirst into The 6ix List…
Killing Joke is practically an institution – for nearly four decades, the prominent post-punk group has been a singular trailblazing entity whose influence has been cited and felt through virtually every genre of music since. Comprised of vocalist/keyboardist/programmer Jaz Coleman, guitarist Kevin “Geordie” Walker, bassist Martin “Youth” Glover, and drummer “Big Paul” Ferguson, Killing Joke’s sound is a juggernaut of contrasting musical atmospheres driven by spiritual and sociopolitical themes; constantly autonomous and innovative.

Every year since 2012, the ColdWaves event has grown in stature and magnitude, celebrating the life and music of Jamie Duffy, and showcasing the strength and solidarity of the industrial music scene. For the last five years, Jason Novak has paid tribute to his friend and musical partner to make ColdWaves more than a simple charity for suicide prevention – it’s a reminder to the disenchanted, the disenfranchised, and the disheartened that this scene is more than a clique, more than a support system… it is a family, bound by the blood of music, art, and culture that we share as a common identity. This year marked a special moment in ColdWaves history [..]
