Spanish Ambient/New Age musician Salva Moreno has seen his musical style slowly gravitate toward Gothic/EBM over the course of 9 albums. Psicodreamics chooses mythology and fantasy for the bulk of its subject mater. Beginning with a typically expansive airy sound on his first couple of independently released efforts, his sound gradually began take on a more mysterious, darker tenor. This transition began to get more pronounced on his 2000 release ‘The Garden’. The album proved to be his most popular to that point. It’s follow up “Azhdark Pssion” raveled a similar path. Based upon the novel “Night Master” by Tanith Lee, it also includes dark interludes, along side tinkling sweet melodies, sometimes within the song. But it was his album “Theatre des Vampires” that Psicodreamics set both feet squarely in the Gothic realm. Using echoing choral arrangements along side brooding synthesizer pieces it is by no mean an oppressively heavy endeavor. In fact, none of the music implies doom or overt pretentious themes one might expect from any album with ‘Vampires’ included in the title. Typically lilting and ethereal it evokes imagery and mood without being overbearing. It’s music even your Mom could tolerate. Psidreamics took a step back from this theme by the next album, again focusing on a mysterious ‘faireworld’, that might could hold equal appeal to some in some regards. This year saw a compilation album of popular tracks from previous albums. Psicodreamics music is perhaps most similar to the bands Enigma or Delirium.
Translated, Eisbrecher means ‘Icebreaker’. Indeed, a worthy definition of a band that contributed to the growing “Neue Deutsche Härte” (New German Hardness) movement, a sub-genre of electronic/metal, along with groups like ‘Rammstein’, ‘Subway to Sally’, and ‘Oomph!’ Founding members singer Alexx Wesselsky and guitarist Noel Pix both alumni from the German alternate metal band ‘Megaherz’, founded Eisbrecher in 2003, and were signed to the Dancing Ferret label in the U.S.. Their self-titled debut appeared the following year, and leaned toward the electronic side when compared to their work with ‘Megaherz’. Their follow up two years later saw the group relying more on their metal roots, with a much harder sound. It also spawned two of their more pular songs, ‘Vergissmeinnicht’ (Forget me Not) with it’s equally a s popular Gothic oriented video, as well as ‘Leider’ ( Regrettably). The pair is supported by four side members to fill out their sound when performing live. Currently, fans are eagerly awaiting their third effort, which is slated for a release in August, and most recently, the group has been touring Eastern Europe. Much of their material is supplied by the mysterious non-member ‘M. Smart. More than competenat in their niche, but hardly groundbreaking, Eisbrecher is assured of dedicated fanbase in their native Germany, as well with fans of Dark Metal related music, everywhere.
