The Industrial Strength Tour that had initially been planned for 2020 did finally happen this year… just not in its original configuration as KMFDM had ultimately been left off the final roster after two rescheduling attempts. That’s not to say that Käpt’n K and company didn’t do well to maintain a relatively active presence [..]

When MINISTRY first announced the Industrial Strength Tour in early 2020, rivetheads rejoiced as the band would be joined by fellow pioneers of the industrial scene KMFDM and Front Line Assembly. Sadly, circumstances seemingly beyond control necessitated the tour’s postponement to this year, with the supporting slots now filled by heavy metal band Corrosion of Conformity and noise rock act Melvins [..]

In these times of social distancing and isolation to quell the spread of the pandemic, the need for personal interaction and congregation is being felt around the world. The cancellation of numerous tours, shows, and festival events combined with the closure of clubs and venues has left an indelible void in the hearts of all who find solace in music. Live shows are more than a chance to see one’s favorite bands perform on a stage – they’re an opportunity for genuine human contact, the exchange of shared tastes, ideas, and emotions. In this writer’s estimation, no festival event accomplishes this more than ColdWaves [..]

A Pigface tour can certainly yield some logistical challenges – as a band with an ever fluid lineup of musicians from all across the spectrum of the underground scene, one is never really sure what will happen. Who is going to be available? How many nights of the tour will any one musician be able to perform? What songs will the band play? Who is in the band for the first time? Is that a sitar on stage? Did I just hear a violin? Why is Krztoff from BILE in a neck brace? I thought those two guys hated each other, but they’re harmonizing vocals? How many drummers does this band have? Am I less drunk than the band? What is going to happen? You never really know… only that it is going to be a singularly awesome experience. [..]

As we all trudge through the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for entertainment of any kind has grown significantly in the past several weeks as so many concerts and live events have been cancelled or postponed, venues forced to shut down, bands and artists having to socially distance as much as the rest of us. Sure, many are live streaming and creating makeshift videos and continually finding ways to keep creating, but very little can replace the experience of actually going to a show, feeling the hum of the speakers, the squeal of the feedback, participating in the roar of the audience, and seeing musicians onstage. A photo or video of a live show tends to be a poor substitute for the experience, but they at least provide a document, a reminder of the power of music felt and shared on a particular night. With this in mind, ReGen is culling the archives to present a series of previously unpublished photo galleries from shows we’ve attended over the past 18 months. [..]

The Riot Room, Kansas City, MO – 09/03/2018


Kansas City was the next to last show in Glitch Mode Recordings’ summer Decode Tour, which featured flagship act Cyanotic accompanied by KANGA, Amelia Arsenic, RELIC, and For All the Emptiness. Performing 24 shows in 32 days with five bands can be difficult, but this cybernetic conglomeration made it an exercise in efficiency with the requirement of only seven people to make all five bands work.
