NEW BAND signs to NILAIHAH!
The infamous FRANK M. SPINATH (of SEABOUND and EDGE OF DAWN) recently collaborated with the THE WEATHERMEN on an amazing side project called GHOST & WRITER. Nilaihah Records is happy to release their 4 song EP, aptly titled 'From Hell' on our upcoming 'FOURPLAY' CD. Look for more GHOST & WRITER news soon. Until then, look for their 4 stunning tracks on 'FOURPLAY' released in late November 2006 with sound samples and track order uploaded soon.

In case you are not familiar with The Weathermen, they emerged out of the mid-80's "electronic body music" wave and burst out of their self-imposed anonymity onto the international music scene. They sold over 100,000 records, had heavy rotation on MTV, completed three European tours plus an American Tour, and had two songs featured on the successful 'Baywatch' series. "Poison" even made it to the German Top 50 singles!

NEW RELEASES
Various Artists - FOURPLAY vol. 1 [CD] (nr031) This amazing "compilation" of 4 Nilaihah bands with 4 tracks each, aptly titled 'FOURPLAY', took quite a while to complete. But we can easily say it was definitely worth the wait! XP8, GHOST & WRITER (Frank Spinath of Seabound/The Weatherman), GASR and INTERFACE all join to each offer 4 brand new tracks; 16 total. Look for a late November 2006 release with track order and sound clips to be uploaded in the new few days...

FROZEN PLASMA - Emphasize [EP] (import)
Once again, Frozen Plasma "wows" us with yet another release. These prolific guys are ready to take over and are steadily moving towards the top. Don't miss this limited 10 track [EP]!

CONETIK - Kube Musik [CD] (import)
If you loved 'Carbon Electriq', this new release will blow you away! We've imported this baby from overseas and cannot wait to hear the US reaction. It's breathtaking! The band is also working on a video for 'Kube Musik' and would love to hear which track you'd like to see a video for!

Don't forget we also have a few more imports left:
NamNamBulu - Alone [CDS] - $6 USD
Endanger - Eternalizer v2.0 - $14 USD

Be sure to check out the new, highly anticipated Nitzer Ebb tribute CD (approved by Nitzer Ebb) called "Muscle and Hate." It is comprised of Sebastian Komor (of Icon of Coil, Monofader, Moonitor) and XP8, complete with Doulas McCarthy-esque vocalist Paul Toohill (of XP8). This album (of several of the best club hits) is so infectious, it's almost as if Nitzer Ebb has resurged... (This album has just entered the DAC [German Alternative Charts] at #16!)

THE AZOIC
LIVE Azoic shows in NYC/Long Island and Washington DC on November 25th and 26th! Check out the shows page for more details. Washington, DC was *just* confirmed so help us spread the word! (Philly show is NOT happening due to a very unprofessional promoter. Sorry Philly fans!)

Look for The Azoic's track "Conflict (Turmoil mix)" to be featured. We're very excited about this opportunity!

With the most robust gameplay and features to date, plus over 100 minutes of energetic dance music, Dance Dance Revolution ULTRAMIX 3 is the ultimate evolution of the revolution."

INVISIBLE BALLET
The secret is out! Invisible Ballet has officially announced that yes, Rebecca and Ryan Coseboom of the infamous band Halou (formerly on Nettwerk and Bedazzled) are in fact, Invisible Ballet. Some guessed already...

XP8
'HRS:MIN:SEC' is taking the world by storm. They reached an outstanding #3 at the DAC two weeks ago with only Rammstein and Depeche Mode ahead of them! The album is still in the top 10, holding at #7. The album also debuted at Bullet #4 on the IAC [Italian Alternative Charts], and it has been voted #4 in VIRUS MAGAZINE's "Reader's Choice."

XP8 is also already planning their next club attack. Teaming up with some of the best artists and remixers of the modern Industrial/EBM scene, they are assembling a new EP that will see the light of day in Spring 2006. Remixes by Grendel, Moonitor, Mindless Faith, Plastic Noise Experience, Reaper, Implant, Angels & Agony, Mortiis, Dope Stars Inc., Spiritual Front and more...

They are also currently looking to book shows in USA and Canada form Spring 2006. If interested, please contact booking@nilaihah.com

GASR
GASR is hard at work on developing their second album for Nilaihah, tentatively titled 'REPTILE.' A polemic with teeth, the album steps away from the sunny themes of domestic violence, rape, and murder found on their debut, opting instead for an even darker, uncomfortably intimate record meant as a thoughtful and violent reaction to life in post-9/11 America. 15 demo tracks have been composed, representing a more aggressive yet still melodic and infectious sound for the band, who expect to whittle the tracks down to around 10 solid cuts. More details and previews to come in 2006...

NULL DEVICE
Are in the studio working on their third album, recording everything from Spanish Flamenco guitar to Indian Dholak. They also welcome Elizabeth Scheef to their live lineup on keyboards and percussion and are still looking to tour in Spring 2006.

Null Device (along with their live guitarist's solo projecvt, Dark Clan) have contributed remixes for Caustic on their debut album due out on Static Sky Records.

DISTORTED REALITY
After much consideration, Distorted Reality recently signed with Scanner of Dark Dimensions in Europe. Their delayed album 'Daydreams and Nightmares' will finally see the light of day on both Nilaihah and Scanner in March '06!

After a few delays, the highly anticipated Null Device London EP has arrived! Exclusive tracks + lush remixes from Iris and Hungry Lucy. Only 100 CD's available worldwide so get yours before they are all gone! Visit http://london.nulldevice.com to download this gem!

XP8
We´re happy to announce the signing of the very talented Italian electro band XP8 to Nilaihah Records. If you've ever heard their music before, imagine a HUGE growth by this fairly young, but talented and hardworking band! Their album 'Hrs:Min:Sec' was produced by the infamous Sebastian Komor of Icon of Coil and will be releases in September. Expect a pumping masterpiece of pure electro power that shows strong similarities to Icon of Coil and Nitzer Ebb, but still retains their trademark sound!

INVISIBLE BALLET
This stunning new band features vocals by Lin Chen and programming by Lee Ryan with production by Ryan Coseboom of Halou (formerly of Nettwerk Records). Striking female fronted electro pop with gorgeous melodies and powerful hooks. Add strong yet ethereal vocals and modern synths with a 80's new wave influences. Be sure to check out the soundclips and look for their debut 'Escaping Light' (complete with club remixes) in early September! Look for their debut live show in San Fran, CA (w/ Evan Sornstein and Shawn Brice of Battery) alongside New Model Army in September! For fans of Delerium, Claire Voyant, Assemblage 23, Curve, VNV Nation and Iris.

THE AZOIC
Animotion recently emailed The Azoic to congratulate them on their cover of "Obsession". Here's what Bill and Asrid (the vocalists) said: "NICE! We both thought it was very cool!" (What an honorfrom the band!) You may have recently caught Animotion live on NBC's "Hit Me Baby One More Time" where they performed their 80's hit.

Yes, there are delays with 'Re:Illumination [the mixes]', but it's only due to how busy The Azoic have been with recent live shows, new band photos, preparing for European gigs and writing new material. The CD has been pushed back until October, but this will give them time to include more new tracks alongside the excellent remixes by other bands. Check out a new soundclip from their upcoming album here ot visit their website for new band press photo shoot in LA (with their newest member Yana.) Expect a live video from their SF show to be posted soon...

And, don't forget about The Azoic's upcoming shows in TEXAS! (July 29th in Dallas and July 30th Houston.) Then they are off to Europe to play Summer Darkness (NL) and Infest (UK)!

NAMNAMBULU
Unfortunately, it was recently announced that NamNamBulu is no longer due to differences. It's sad because they really took off in their short existence and had great poteintial! We hear there could be another formation of the band in the future, but for now, make sure you purchase their CD's and t-shirts before we sell out completely!

DISTORTED REALITY
It's true. Their upcoming album 'Daydreams & Nightmares' has been delayed once again until early 2006. However, it's not bad news. The band just signed with a new label (to be announced soon), are preparing for a big promotion campaign on their new CD and are booking several live shows in Europe.
