Feel The Beat 2012
After their show stealing performances on their last jaunt Down Under with Grendel & Cervello Eletronico, Nachtmahr return to Oz in November to make us all Feel the Beat.
True to aforementioned motto, Thomas Rainer created his new musical
project NACHTMAHR in 2007. Over the past 11 years, the Austrian artist
achieved worldwide success with L’AME IMMORTELLE and SIECHTUM, and
here he returns to his roots: the boiling dancefloors of industrial
and goth clubs alike.
Inspired by numerous years of DJing, NACHTMAHR is the missing link
between merciless and provocative industrial and the hammering power
The first release, "Kunst ist Krieg (i.e., Art is War)", and it’s club
hit, "BoomBoomBoom", instantly conquered the dancefloors and earned
the band a slot on the soundtrack of the American block-buster movie,
Even on the dancefloor, there is room to think about all our daily nightmares.
However, the success of the EP was far surpassed with the release of
the full-length album, "Feuer frei". The club single "Katharsis"
dominated the clubs for months and Germany's biggest and most
influential dark music magazine, ORKUS, even stated "Feuer frei" was
“the new standard for the electro industrial genre”.
While others would have rested on their laurels, NACHTMAHR extensively
toured through North and Central America, Europe, and Russia -
including major worldwide festivals like Wave-Gothik-Treffen, Kinetik
Festival, and M'era Luna - whilst preparing their second full time
assault, "Alle Lust will Ewigkeit".
With it, the Austrian Industrial project continued on the
uncompromising and relentless path of destruction with their
now-trademark heavy distorted beats, driving bass lines, and addictive
melodies… an album whose might was soon confirmed by No. 1 positions
for both single and album in the German charts.
Within three years and with only 2 albums, this adherence to one's
principles turned NACHTMAHR from a complete newcomer into one of the
driving forces of the industrial scene today… and "Semper Fidelis"
will triumph them both to lead the project to even higher ground.
