Please keep your ‘Gremlins’ away from the food to ensure safety and order! The gothic rave continues with a dance off between the ‘Predator’ and ‘Chucky’ the murder puppet! ‘Chucky’ shakes the club up a bit with his 90s french hip hop track, a genre that hasn’t been heard in the EXTIZE universe before!

‘Everyone can hide their dangerous side, keep their demons locked up in a cage but they will still linger on, starving for blood! Your nightmare can take on many shapes... Even the shape of a small bug. But what seems small and harmless can bite you, poison you, kill you. Nature brings life... and death. Predators and prey. Now what or who is OCTO CRURA, you may ask? Well, they are somewhere in between. Not quite human, not quite creature. Guided by their insect queens their reign has just begun! Listen closely and perhaps one day, you will discover their most terrible secret...’

Step into the glorious world of horror, poetry and insects! The Italian group OCTO CRURA takes you into an imaginative and exciting realm that has never been seen or heard before, filled with dark melodic songs supported by the growls and screams of frontwomen Kaitlin and Van whose vocal pitch resembles the one of Maria Brinks from the band IN THIS MOMENT. Their new album ‘Tagmata’ pulls you in with their unique sound of industrial metal meeting melodic death metal and coming together as one to form the most perfect fusion! By putting out their feelers into both directions, they have managed to create compositions similar to the work of JINJER, ARCH ENEMY, BUTCHER BABIES and INFECTED RAIN!

The 8 track long album is a feast of synths, heavy guitars and thunderous drums which will leave you starving for more! The songs are powerful metal gems and even explore a dark gothic atmosphere with ‘Domina Tenerbis’ which feels even more mysterious than the rest of the tracklist. Another distinctively peculiar song is 'Spirit Whole' which takes you to dark ritual session with shamanic chants and hypnotic drumming! This European industrial metal excellence that is OCTO CRURA, will make you submerge into their world willingly and keep you excited for more!

Let the insect queens and their band spin a cocoon around you with their sensational new album 'Tagmata' available on the 29th of April 2022.

CATTAC - Nightness

💥 CATTAC are back! It's gonna be dark! 💥

The most evil cats of the darkwave & industrial scene are back with a new EP & video!

“Nightness” is multi-faceted, catchy and dark at the same time. It's all about darkness, death and dark fantasies.

The song "Dark Siren" describes a lonely siren who, lost in the depths of the ocean, waits for her great love in the form of a sinking human being. It is the sad dichotomy between the desire to put an end to all this loneliness and her longing on the one hand, and the unbroken hope that one day someone could come down to her. She is a tragic, sad figure, but one who deserves her very special admiration.

With the song "Morticians", CATTAC have for the first time a lyrically somewhat funnier song in their program, which deals with the brave job of our undertaker.

With the song "Forgive My Sins" is about a desirable encounter, which through its merciless, seductive nature forces you to confess willingly and to throw off any "old ballast".

Let's jump all together into the night, but don't forget: at night all cats are not grey, some of them are dark... very dark...
