26 years of SUICIDE COMMANDO, another milestone in the band's history !
To celebrate this unique birthday the band releases „the suicide sessions", a luxury 6 CD boxset including their first 3 studio albums and 3 more CD's full of rare and previously unreleased material from their early days.
For over two decades the godfather of Harsh Electro has been bombarding us now with countless club smashers and morbid soundtracks, and still the end is not in sight. Full speed ahead !
American Dark Electro from TX
Their shadowy presence on our roster has been confirmed only to a select few up to now – but with their first major mission alongside AESTHETIC PERFECTION and X-RX about to take place across America, the time has come for us to publicly identify BLAKOPZ as the new tactical unit in DWA’s ever-more-powerful army of artists.

With collective field experience of over 20 years in the rave, industrial and related music scenes, veteran DJ/producer Mike Weir (codename “Mindbender”) and producer Alex King (codename “Kill The Alex”) joined forces in just 2010 to form the BLAKOPZ unit – yet have already been deployed in surgical strikes throughout America opening for the likes of FGFC820, GOD MODULE, HANZEL UND GRETYL, IMPERATIVE REACTION and AYRIA.

Until now, only the occasional rough demo has surfaced online to confirm BLAKOPZ actual existence – but as of now, all that is about to change.
Bursting into your eardrums like a flash grenade, BLAKOPZ carefully-crafted debut offering “Blood, Sweat And Fear” is a politically-charged beatdown of industrial-edged hard dance – BLAKOPZ own State Of The Union address, replete with vocal support from their fellow Americans Rexx Arkana of FGFC820 and “Mighty” Mike Saga.

Given a final polish in the mastering suite of German maestro Kolja Trelle (SOMAN), “Blood, Sweat And Fear” is completed by a brutal bonus section of remixes from Australian hard dance legends STUDIO-X, Colombian hardstyle industrial act TERRORKODE and Atlanta’s maverick masters of dark electronica DIE SEKTOR!
Dead Hand Projekt
Dead Hand Projekt
Mastermind, Taury Goforth, has been making music as Dead Hand Projekt (aka DHP) since 2010. Originating in Southern California, Dead Hand Projekt was formed in January, 2010, and has been actively destroying our ear drums with gut wrenching vocals, filled with hate, disgust, and vile truths; and punching us in our faces with slamming beats, heart crushing bass, and devastating leads.

Dead Hand Projekt released its first and self-titled album in 2010, on August 17th. This album contains an astounding 15 original tracks; 14 listed and 1 (RoosterBoy) as a secret track on the physical CD.
* Dead Hand Projekt – ‘Dead Hand Projekt’ was released on Vendetta Music *

In the summer of 2011, DHP relocated its HQ to Denver, CO. On August 13th, 2011, Dead Hand Projekt performed in Denver, CO, bringing Gustavo Montano on to play live keys. Soon after, on November 1st, 2011, DHP brought on another live member, Kiel McLaughlin, to play live keys as well as guitar.

A day short of a year after the self-titled DHP album was released, came a follow-up EP, “Horror”, which had a release date of August 16th, 2011. This EP contained a radio edit version of ‘Horror’ (previously released on the self-titled album), 2 original tracks, and a remix of ‘Dejected’ by Imperative Reaction.
* Dead Hand Projekt – ‘Horror’ EP was released on Vendetta Music *

Both the self-titled album and the “Horror” EP were mastered by Ted Phelps of Imperative Reaction, as well as “The Lost EP”…

“The Lost EP” was released on March 13th, 2012. It included 4 original tracks, in which one of them, ‘SuckItDry’, debuted guitars by Kiel McLaughlin; introducing Kiel as being one of the well oiled gears in the ever evolving machine, called Dead Hand Projekt.
* Dead Hand Projekt – ‘The Lost EP’ was released on Vendetta Music *
