Darkwave Disco For The Twilight Hours – German Artist VLIMMER Has His New Album ‘MENSCHENLEERE’ Out

12 November 2022

Artist: VLIMMER
Who: One-man project by Berlin based musician Alexander Leonard Donat
FFO: HEALTH, The Soft Moon, The Cure, Drab Majesty, Drangsal, Slowdive

New album: MENSCHENLEERE

Info: “The new album lets some light shoot through the dark red sky. Melancholy to angry, Donat documents which interpersonal barriers have arisen in recent years or have always existed. He also indicates repeatedly that one simply cannot understand oneself. Can man at all master his situation if he repeats the mistakes of the past? Is a “deserted” planet freed from humanity (“Menschenleere”) the only logical consequence?”

TUTV: Menschenleere soundtracks the dark times we live in with dark music. As long as only the evil eras of our history will repeat themselves, humankind risks destroying its heart, soul, spirit and mind. Pandemics, war, racism, sexism, inequality, intolerance, and all related, threatening issues are, unfortunately, timeless symptoms that will eventually lead to the end of the world as we know it, but contrary to what R.E.M. once sang, it
doesn’t feel fine, not at all.

Vlimmer realises it too and reflects it all in this new dusky longplayer with gloomy synth symphonies, somber vibrations, ominous orchestrations and melodramatic vocality.

Darkwave disco for the twilight hours. Yes, the good news is you can dance to most of the songs, maybe not with a smile on your face, but at least with some hope that one day we’ll finally learn how to survive.

German Goth Act VLIMMER Blows Your Mind With Two New Tracks

Daily electricity to load your batteries

25 January 2022

Artist: VLIMMER
Who: German goth act
based in Berlin

After last year’s ominous Götterdämmerung debut album
Nebenkörper Vlimmer returns with two astounding tracks.

– ERDGERUCH –
(Landslide)

Electro-power-pop with that characteristic theatrical darkwave fervency
you can twirl yourself totally giddy to. So while we wait for the end of the
ruthless corona pandemic let’s dance ourselves into a state of liberating
delirium.


.
– SPACE DEMENTIA –

This highly feverish slo-mo belter blew my mind on first hearing.
The immense intensity and the overpowering vocality send shivers
down your spine from the kick-off until the wall-of-synth sound finale.
Awesome! Fantastisch!

Götterdämmerung 2021 – German Goths VLIMMER Impress With Their Debut LP ‘NEBENKÖRPER’

21 October 2021

Band: VLIMMER
Who: German goths based in Berlin who
fabricated/released 18 EPs (!) before this debut LP

Debut Album: NEBERKÖRPER
Released: 24 September 2021 through Blackjack Illuminist Records

Turn Up The Volume: ‘The Times They Are A-Changin‘ sang Bob Dylan back in 1964,
and yes the world changed and is still changin’ but in the wrong direction (again).

Ruthless, political autocrats and maniacal swindlers rule again (so what’s new?), oppressing people for their own avaricious purposes. If that isn’t enough our
restless world got knocked out by the devastating coronavirus crisis.

Apocalypse Now? It looks like it.

If we need to go down let’s do it with a fitting soundtrack. Nebenkôrper is a non-stop tsunami of synth-scary doom and gloom thunder. At times with a weird sort of dark
opera chants (Mutem / Minusgesicht / Kartenwarten), at times with Front 242 shockers
(Ad Astra / Wangendrück / I.P.A.), at times with hallucinatory bangers (Meter / Kron), but
always with infuriating intensity and wall-breaking orchestration from start to climax.

Götterdämmerung 2021? Absobloodylutely!

Single/clip: I.P.A.
