Yes, the summer holidays are over already, and the credit crunch is still going strong unfortunately... so we thought it would be time for another free compilation!
Volume six already of the world famous F**k Em All compilation series (of course again in collaboration with Death To Music Productions) brings you again the best of the best of the industrial metal underground. Italian industrial gothic metal group No Forgiveness brings an exclusive preview for their upcoming album with a brand new track, followed by the accessable and catchy sounds by Argentine Chrisallys. From the more heavy drum'n'bass / breakcore influenced beats of the UK's The Bombs Of Enduring Freedom, Russia's Headphone Killazz and France's Low Frequencies we move to the tunes of Russia's top notch quality industrial death metal band Conflict. The compilation ends with the tight industrial metal sounds of Germany's BlitzKill and the more progressive Sonic Thunder from the United States.
01 NO FORGIVENESS (italy) "Natural Born Sinners"
02 CHRISALLYS (argentina) "Breed Of Cain"
03 THE BOMBS OF ENDURING FREEDOM (united kingdom) "This Is The Israeli Navy"
04 HEADPHONE KILLAZZ (russia) "Half-Life Period"
05 LOW FREQUENCIES (france) "Hypnotism"
06 CONFLICT (russia) "Spybot"
07 BLITZKILL (germany) "Sinnestäter"
08 SONIC THUNDER (united states) "Time To Die"
Again a very diverse compilation, coming with artwork to print and interviews with the participating bands. Find all info over here ;
Also we started planning the next volume of our F**k Em All compilation series, coming really soon!

Another FREE compilation presented to you by the Industrialized Metal Webzine and Death To Music Productions - already volume 5 of the F**k Em All series !
Enjoy the cyber metal tunes from Khadaver (Slovak Republic) and Illidiance (Russia) before you slowly move to something more electronic guided by one man project Laho (Finland), Omega Flare (Italy) and Krell (Spain). Then we're getting a bit more experimental with the so-called 'drum'n'bass wave' provided by Psyber (Romania) and the dark mix of ambient and industrial black metal played by Rat King (India) to end the compilation with a brutally raw Ministry alike track by Switch (The Phillipines). As you can see, we bring you another diverse compilation including bands that literally are from every corner of the world!
Once again, this compilation is literally priceless and comes with free artwork to print and create your own limited physical version of this compilation.
Find all info HERE and the Death To Music Productions website. If you haven't downloaded the other four volumes yet, feel free to grab them from the DTM page as well.
Recently Gerardo started to do podcasts on Radio Godmode - an electro / industrial metal based webradio. It'll consist of two hours of electro / industrial metal tunes, broadcasted every Friday and Wednesday at 21.00 London time and then again 21.00 New York time, on both the days - with a new podcast every other week. So far there had been two already, find the playlist and any future playlist over HERE. Be sure to tune in, for remarks and requests feel free to contact me!
For the people who were wondering why there hasn't been an update in a while - we have noticed this too. Several reviews are already written and pending, thus we promise the next one will be massive including reviews from Headphone Killazz, Illidiance, Blitzkill and many more. However, we do have something new to read for you, namely brand new interviews with The Bombs of Enduring Freedom, Narthex and Snovonne. Go check them out!

04 - 05 - 2009: Two new interviews + last reminder for the Volkmar mini-tour
So - a rather small update, but certainly not less interesting. Put down your pizza slices for a moment to check out two brand new interviews with two bands hailing from Italy. Newcomers and/or movie freaks Dark Door opened their book to give us some inside information on various chapters related to this band and their way of promoting and playing music, while both Victor Love (Dope Stars Inc.) and Noras Blake (Edenyzed, Spineflesh) were more than happy to explain everything about their brand new collaboration named Epochate. Two interesting interviews for your enjoyment !
As well - I'd like to send out a last reminder about the Volkmar and 3rd Machine mini-tour that's coming up next weekend - don't forget to visit us ;-)
May 08 - Rockclub The Cave, Amsterdam (22h00 - €5)
May 09 - De Kade (Kleine Zaal), Zaandam (21h30 - free entrance)
There will be a Seven Times More Scary stand at both gigs, and there will be a special DJ set by DJ Gerardo on the Zaandam show. Another reason to come and visit us !
As well - we did an interview with our good friend DJ Xormic, shortly explaining his biography and what it takes to be an industrial metal DJ like him and DJ Gerardo are.
Furthermore, the Dutch mini-mini-mini-tour of Australia's Volkmar is approaching fast !
Volkmar, hailing from Australia, is finding its way back to The Netherlands! After a successfully exclusive European and therefore as well Dutch performance in De Bastille in 2007, things went fast with this band. They signed major labeldeals with Modern Invasion Music (Australia) and Danse Macabre (Europe and the rest of the world - Das Ich bandmembers' label) and got booked on the prestigious Wave Gothik Treffen festival in Germany. But - Volkmar wouldn't be Volkmar if they didn't want to share their success with the Dutch people they fell in love with during their preverious gig. Please find the dates here ;
May 08 - Rockclub The Cave, Amsterdam (22h00 - €5)
May 09 - De Kade (Kleine Zaal), Zaandam (21h30 - free entrance)
Support act on this mini-tour will be Dutch formation 3rd Machine. This band combines heavy passages influenced by Fear Factory and Samael with haunting melodies and a lot of power and diversity. Volkmar itself plays an accessable mix of metal, industrial, gothic and wave - with tight riffing and old school vocal lines. During both dates you'll be able to find our Seven Times More Scary distro, for excellent underground choice in industrial metal.
Find the review of Volkmar's "Blessed Sins" album over here.
Find the review of 3rd Machine's "Urban Madness" promo over here.
As well - we recently published interviews with Prickrott and Pavor Nocturnus that due to server strikes weren't published on our news page 'till today, so check them out if you have not done so yet.
Last but not least - we have published the first opinions on volume 4. Keep on sending them, and keep on checking them here !
06 - 03 - 2009: F**k Em All - Volume 4 ! Eight brand new reviews online !
Today we're very pleased to bring you another compilation as result of the collaboration of your favorite webzine and your favorite anti-record label ;
"F**k Em All - Volume 4"
Once again, a literally priceless attempt to show you some of the best kept secrets of the underground (industrial) metal scene. This time we bring you stuff from three Spanish acts (electro-ambient by Onirica, accessable electro metal by Notes From Underground and harder than a rock in your face-industrial metal by Blood Out'), two interesting additions from the U.S.A. (Drones by providing a thrashy mix inbetween industrial metal and modern metal, as well Beneath Eden with a dark ambient influenced electro metal song), a brand new reggae dub industrial metal track by the UK's The Bombs of Enduring Freedom, a full speed industrial metal massacre track by Dutch duo Hæckefløsse and - what in our opinion counts as one of the best tracks appearing on our compilations so far - a heavy electro / gothic metal track by Argentine band Chrisallys !
As well this time, the release is downloadable for FREE and comes with FREE artwork (provided by Mick Usher) so you can print and fix your own physical CD, to be able to show off how truely DIY you really are !

We firstly announced it for March, but since it was complete already, why not release it right away... right?
After the animal rights special, which brought us next to some hatemail as well quite a bunch of compliments, we felt it was time for a brand new special. And what better special could we think of than an anti-racism one?!
During our five years of work with the Industrialized Metal Webzine, we discovered and recieved requests from many different and diverse industrial metal bands. From political cyberpunk acts to humorous avantgardists and from straight forward old school bands to modern experimental dance metal formations – coming from every little corner of this big globe. We never witnessed any bands with a right winged ideology until halfway 2008. One request arrived and got denied, followed by two more. As well, an NSBM band with industrial influences came our way. We know and we strongly realize that these fortunately are some very small exceptions within the scene, but at the same time we think it simply cannot be tolerated.
The full Industrialized Metal Webzine crew, as well including our past members, have always been and will always be strongly speaking out against racism, as well the large majority of the bands within the scene. Therefore, it wasn’t a difficult quest to find bands willing to participate for this special.
To be found on this special: a total of 15 band interviews (plus interviews with the 2 Industrialized Metal Webzine staff members) shouting out against racism with wellgiven arguments - and covering a large percentage of the globe! As well, we collected a bunch of useful links for you to check out, for some further reading and exploring.
Check the anti racism special in the "MEDIA" section, or just click here.
Next week you can expect a massive page update with new reviews (Homemade Abortion Kit, Neon Synthesis, Epochate, Richard Christ and many more), as well F**k Em All - Volume 4 !
12 - 02 - 2009: Two more interviews available !
Yes, it clearly seems like an interview rain this month so far. After the three interviews posted four days ago, we got two more right here. Janne of the Finnish industrial formation Black Light Discipline explains all about their killer debut album 'Empire' (top score review earlier on this page!), while Virtigo front man Shaitan does the very same on their latest release 'Rituals of Broken Flesh'. Enjoy!
Next to this, the time has come to announce the return of Australian's leading industrial gothic metal formation Volkmar to the Dutch stages. After a successful show in 2007, the band is constructing gigs around their 2009 Wave Gothik Treffen performance, and therefore they'll be doing two shows in The Netherlands together with Dutch talents 3rd Machine. The dates are ;
May 8th (Friday) - Rockclub The Cave, Amsterdam
May 9th (Saturday) - De Kade (Kleine Zaal), Zaandam
Don't miss it for any reason, and stay tuned for more gigs, because since we didn't do anything during 2008, we've got some noise left to throw at you this year!
08 - 02 - 2009: Site updates !

06 - 01 - 2009: Happy belated new year ! Two first 2009 releases reviewed...
Yes, we know we're late, but we still want to wish all the readers a happy belated 2009. None of us lost any fingers, toes, eyebrows or braincells (although that one hasn't been proven yet!) so we'll be able to present you some very excellent reviews within the new year as well. To prove this once again, we'd like to present you two excellent 2009 releases, already reviewed on our page: Dol Theeta "The Universe Expands" - what a way to kick off the new year with a new composition of Thanasis Lightbridge and his Electronic Art Metal label. First Dol Theeta full-lenght, including 'Goddess' (preveriously on the 'Goddess' EP). Techny-Call X "Evolution" - long awaited debut album after their impressive 'Start The Process' demo three years ago. Album includes new versions of all the demo tracks, as well a new version of 'Disconnected', which you might have heard on F**k Em All - Volume 2!
As well, we have got some exciting new gigs coming up. German industrial rockers Golem 101 will hit the stages together with Haeckeflosse (full-speed industrial metal) and Deathgression (EBM/electro, formely known as Transgressor) the last Thursday and Friday of January. Go see the flyers in the "visuals" section! This will also include DJ sets by Industrialized Metal Webzine founder Gerardo.
24 - 12 - 2008: Merry Christmas ! Yearlists !
To kick off right away: on behalf of the whole Industrialized Metal Webzine Crew we'd like to wish all of you a merry Christmas (or like most Americans keep on wishing us: Happy holidays). We have a small Christmas present for you people and aliens; namely the 2008 yearlists. Not only we present you the full album list, as well a top 10 of Gerardo and Arinne's favorite industrial metal tracks of this year, and a top 5 of new bands to definitely keep an eye on in the future. Find everything out about it by clicking HERE, before you get back to your welldecorated trees and candlelight tables ;-)
10 - 12 - 2008: Eight brand new reviews + new interview !
28 - 11 - 2008: New interviews + site news and updates
Again - we pasted two more freshly licked interviews into our webzine for your enjoyment. History of Guns from the U.K. took the time to answer our questions about their latest album 'Acedia', and Chrisallys all the way from Argentina offered us an exclusive view into their band, upcoming album and the Argentine scene. Check them out both!
As well, we made some more progression with the band profiles. Next to the preveriously mentioned sections (A-G, J, Q, U, X and Y) that were fixed already, we've now got the sections H, I and S all fine and working. As well, we started planning an anti-racism special for next year, which looks like it's going to kick some asses. Stay tuned!
24 - 11 - 2008: New interviews!
We are happy to present you two very interesting new interviews. Brazil's Embrioma was more than happy to explain everything about their band, their live shows and the Brazilian scene, while Hydra from the U.K. shared their explanations upon their music and lyrics with us.

Again - this compilation gives a good view of the yet unknown though high quality bands in the industrial metal underground scene. Do you dare to listen to the black gothic darkness provided by Romanian Attractor and the French Tenebrarum Infanteus? Or would you like some more doomy influenced stuff such as Backdoor Syndicate (all the way from Moldova!), or American duo ZS Concept? Also from the States, we have some very interesting submissions by vegan solo project FluiD (Godflesh worship!) and the more accessable Cynergy 67. You want it more extreme? We bring you a crazy cyber metal track of Swedish A.N.T.I. and a hardcore metal vs. drum'n'bass track by The Bombs of Enduring Freedom! And once again, it comes with free killer artwork that you can print to complete your handmade physical CD!

As well, we'll start working more intensively on bringing back the band profiles, which should give some results relatively soon as well. Want to join our staff?

"F**k Em All"
- volume one was a great success, so what will
keep us from releasing volume two? Nothing
actually. Therefore, we (Industrialized Metal
and Death To Music) started to work on volume
two already. It will again feature ten bands (HeritecH,
Golden Age, Burzukh, Plutonium, a.o.) and will
be released on May 4th, 2008!
Of course, this release comes with the
interviews on the Industrialized Metal Webzine

make your own physical CD - all for free!
We also would like to announce that we've
recently published an interview with Cybercage.
13 - 03 - 2008: DEADCELL signs with Urgence Disk Records
The second DEADCELL
studio album 'STATE OF FEAR' will be released by
the Swiss label Urgence Disk Records on APRIL
30th 2008. Urgence Disk Records is home of BAK
XIII, Dolls of Pain and many more.
Marcus Bodine states that : "The new album
contains a heavy mix of old-skool
Industrial/Metal, progressive dark electro and
soundtrack/classical influences. Definitely a
record of extremes. We did some try-out shows
with the new songs, and the response was really
good. The sound, production & composition of
this album are really mature without losing the
'underground feel'. The translation of the songs
to a live situation is what makes this album
really special. Every song tells its own story,
which made it possible for us to take the music,
dance & visuals to a whole new level."
After years of working with the Industrialized
Metal Webzine, one thing clearly became clear:
there are many, many great bands out there, but
hardly anyone of them gets the chance to get
their music heard on a proper way. Labels hardly
pay attention to give them a chance, and if they
do they base their contracts on money-making
terms for the industry. Because it is our
opinion that bands don't need money-loving
record labels these days to get their music
heard (how we love the internet!) we teamed up
with our friends for Death To Music Productions
to end up in the release of industrial metal
compilations. All of them are to be downloaded
for free on DTM's page, and all the bands are
interviewed on the Industrialized Metal Webzine.
Check out the MEDIA
section to read the interviews and download the
compilation for free!
