DEATHRITE + Abyssous
Presale: 14€ (plus fees)
Deathrite are Beff, Andy, Tony, Tom, and Anton. But that wasn’t always the case. As with most bands lineups change, but the original core—Beff, Andy, Tony—started jamming together in Dresden in 2010. Informed by punkandhardcore’s pissed off mentality, inspired by the sounds—namely, the buzzsaw guitar tone resulting from the Boss HM-2 pedal—of early stage Entombed and Dismember, and totally in awe of the opposite ends of grindcore and sludge, Deathrite’s style was unlikely but stabbed strongly at the heart of it all. There was no pretense in Deathrite. Only a bunch of likeminded Germans bonded by thingshard, fast, slow, and heavy..
Conceptually, Nightmare’s Reignisn’t a metaphor. Deathritewrite about death and darkness—literally, the consummation of two themes—most of the time, but on their Century Media debut, the lyrics tackle the topic of nightmares and theirpowerfulinfluence. The Germansare keenly interested in the force of nightmares, what they’re capable of inside and out of dreams.Songs like “Appetite for Murder,” “Bloodlust,” and “Temptation’s Call” were written about the powerful and frightful conditions brought on by nightmares, and how they might influence real-life decisions. Whereas Motörhead’s “Like a Nightmare” scratches the surface, Deathrite’s “Demon Soul” and title track delve deep into the darkest corners.

MODERN CULTS TOUR 2019
Tickets: Presale: 15€ (plus fees) | Doors: 18€
Music for the lost: HOLYGRAM‘s music blends post-punk and new wave with Krautrock and shoegaze elements into a headstrong, multi-layered and thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the 1980s, including a resolute look to the future: driving, dark and full of catchy moments. The wide range of influences of the five band members, who got together in Cologne’s vibrating musical landscape in 2015, are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU!. Their unpretentious approach to their own icons proves that references to the past must always be future-oriented, too. Previously impossible-to-combine elements come together cleverly to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

On the occasion of the release of her debut album “Wǒ Men”
Bonnie Li will throw her release party at Urban Spree on the 14th of Feb!
“In Mandarin ‘wǒ’ means I-myself, ‘wǒ men’ is translated into we-us, and if you skip the space in between it gives you ‘women’, I wanted to play around with that.”
Written over the course of the last year, ‘Wǒ Men’ was arranged with Elia M Sycomor and produced by regular collaborator Paolo Pizzuto in their new home in Berlin, setting the start of a new evolution for the artist.
With the use of further instrumentation and adopting a more Dark-Pop aesthetic, Bonnie Li sees the release as the start of a new beginning for her, experimenting further and moving away from her trip-hop-inspired origins.
“Wǒ Men” looks to be a beacon of coveted thoughts, speaking opinions that you know you shouldn’t, channelling insecurity in a search for yourself. It’s organic, dynamic and fragile, distorted as a mirror to the artist’s emotions and fears, sensitive and dark.
Singer/composer & multi-lingual polymath, Bonnie Li has already been praised by the likes of Clash Magazine EARMILK, Rolling Stone Italia and The Line Of Best Fit.
SEE YOU THERE Beautiful Freaks ♥
