419echo Here's another example of an album I bought select tracks from...and then realized I just should have bought the whole thing. This really is so good, no way to pick a favorite. Just one bad ass industrial album, rating amongst the best I've heard. No exaggeration. Favorite track: korrupticide.

Dustfan Brazilian hard edged EBM with a lot of old-school flavor. Favorite track: tripoli.

R☮⚔Y How do you pick a fave here? So many good songs. Powerfully smooth with the anticipatory jagged edge of a serrated blade. Favorite track: less but more (to the core mix by aesthetische).

Noi When I heard this, after I had purchased Nachtbrennar and heard Hybridcore, I was sold on their entire catalog. Even their “so-so” songs tend to be better than some band’s good work. Aesthetische has very quickly run me over with their soundscapes, then backed-up over me a few times to really drive home the point about how great these guys are… How can one band have so many solid releases? Well, this album foretells how. They’re growing on me daily… Favorite track: get it done.

Buddingsquaw Decent album; great to have playing in the background.
Listening in the car though? Nah.
The mastery really falls flat there, which is a shame.

about

Instigators of one of the most successful Brazilian EBM exports to date with the solid dark elektro repertoire of AGHAST VIEW, Fab Viscardi and Gui Pires recently united forces again for a new promising AESTHETISCHE sonic adventure! After almost 8 years of silence since their last release as BIOPSY and AGHAST VIEW, the two Brazilian studio wizards storm the base again to the ultimate pleasure of the "old-scool EBM" fans who had almost lost faith in seeing the resurrection of these talented artists.

They are back for MORE! With AESTETISCHE, the Brazilian duo aims to present the hardcore EBM fans with an album to entice the senses and electrocute the industrial dancefloors. It is by filtering their solid EBM roots through modern technologies that AESTHETISCHE sculpted their unique sound identity within today's emerging "new" EBM movement. Followers of their early projects will for sure recognize their AGHAST VIEW signature combination of hammering beats, vocal fx, sample manipulations and kick-ass basslines, but the new compositions also reveal more depth and songwriting complexity and benefit from modern programming techniques and a top-notch detailed production sound.

With the evocative title of "Powerswitch", AESTHETISCHE's album mixes the good old EBM aggressive feel with hi-energy modern sounds for a very clean type of hard-driven electronic music. With intelligent allusions to trance, electro or even dubstep, this album creates above all an atmosphere of never-ending pounding beats and intense rhythms. We will also notice some astounding bonus surprises: 2 AGHAST VIEW club hits ("Burst In Crossfire", "Automation") fully reloaded by AESTHETISCHE and another ass-kicking collaboration with label-mates DIFFUZION on "Touch The Glass".

Fans of the good old EBM sound from pioneers like FRONT 242, NITZER EBB and FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY will NOT be disappointed. AESTHETISCHE guarantees a full blast of electronic force made in Brazil!

This deluxe edition offers some 15 more assaults to keep even the hardest electrohead breathless. With remixes from AESTHETISCHE themselves and a roster of fine acts like ROBOTIKO REJEKTO, MINDLESS FAITH, etc.

The lucky fans ordering this release directly from the Alfa Matrix Bandcamp page receive the "3rdswtch" bonus "LTDPWR EPCD" with some 4 new exclusive non-album tracks and more great remixes adding another 13 dancefloor stompers to the boxset!
