Ladies & gentlemen, we're very excited to present you the debut album "Apoda" of our latest Darkpop signing from Russia DANCE MY DARLING.

👉 Click here to listen to the album:

The long ringing of the funerary bell, the rumbling of the heavy boots of the conqueror and the silent, melancholic noise... DANCE MY DARLING is a musical project from Russia, created in 2019 by Roman Munster, formerly the leader of the Russian gothic metal band “Maestro Nosferatu”, which existed from 2008 to 2018, and Alexandra Snork, the keyboards of the Russian post-punk band "Gruppa Hmuryi". The name DANCE MY DARLING is a reference to "Dance Mephisto", the name of the song by Austrian singer Falco, a cover version of which Roman Munster made as part of his previous metal band “Maestro Nosferatu”. Musically, DANCE MY DARLING spans many genres from electro-pop and dance music to darkwave and post-punk / gothic rock. The brightness and wide range of Roman's voice are the hallmarks of DANCE MY DARLING's sound. Lyrics are dedicated to topics of love, sex, alienation and death.


We're very exited to present you a live multicam stream of our latest Nu-Metal / Industrial Metal signing XORDIA from Switzerland! The band will play a full live show (from their new album which has been released last week) and make live interviews in German and English! Don't miss them on June 12th, 20:00 CET!


The neon light revolution is coming. It’s the dawn of a new era. Everything you believed in is no longer relevant. Welcome to a nu-metal science fiction story set in a cold and threatening cyberspace environment, which serves as a breeding ground for the energetic anthems of this new album.

End Time Metal, a powerful female voice, groovy Nu-Metal riffs and madhouse industrial synths unite on "Neolux" to an explosive sound cocktail. As in a good book, XORDIA's metalheads make sure that the 12 tracks they recorded never lack the momentum necessary to build up suspense. With "Neolux" they created a futuristically catchy and shrill, but still extremely profound piece of contemporary ar, which sounds as if WILLIAM GIBSON had thrown a few pills and then invented Industrial Metal.

Overall XORDIA present with their first album "Neolux" in 2020 a captivating mix of electronic melodies à la CELLDWELLER and GUNSHIP, groovy guitars in the style of KORN, heavy beats and breakdowns reminiscent of IN THIS MOMENT, and combine these effectively with Alyn's versatile vocals.

When the stroboscope flashes dance like crazy through the neon-soaked night of the modern metropolis, the Swiss celebrate their dystopian dance. And lead the listener equally threatening and thrilling into the depths of the human psyche. At times thoughtful and spherical, at others hard and relentless, they invite you to forget everything for the moment. With "Neolux", the five-piece group definitely turns on a new light in the Metal sky.

Due to the actual covid19 crisis, it’s a very hard time for everybody, for example for the artists who are not able to make live shows or to tour any more… But it’s not only hard for bands and the actors of the cultural scene, many other sectors need help like the animal protection sector… Actually animals shelters are full because too many people decided to abandon their animals, and due to the social distancing, it’s very hard for people to adopt these pets… Also, due to the financial crisis, the animal shelters which work with donations only, got less donations than usual and some of them are unfortunately not able to save new animals any more cause they are full and at the end of their ressources.

That’s why we’ve decided to use the reach of this festival for a good cause: if you can and if you want, we invite you to make donations via the Tipeeestream link below. The first half of your donation will go to the animal shelter « Tierschutzverein Heidelberg » and the second half will go to the bands you’re going to see during this festival.

The festival will be presented by the lovely DJane MAUS (Sherri Maus) from the world wide number 1 gothic podcast/radio Communion After Dark and Obscura Undead.
