Krane is a four-piece band from Basel that was already founded in 2012. Although the first album „ouroboros" was released after the first year, the band was only able to play very few concerts due to various fluctuations and thus remained largely unknown. For two of the band founders the following years were marked by the desperate search for fellow musicians to keep the project alive. This long-lasting search, as well as a flooding in the practice space, could not force Krane to its knees, and two new members were found in 2016/2017. At long last the band is now releasing their second album „Pleonexia" on the label Czar of Crickets. While the first album revolves around psychosomatics and the accompanying emotional effects, „Pleonexia" takes up the topic of recurring sequences and patterns of warfare in illegal resource conflicts. With „Pleonexia", Krane tries to show these sequences very soberly and neutrally and to musically implement them far away from war glorification. It was important for all band members to record the new album on their own. Thus, „Pleonexia" was created in the band’s own practice space without any digital sound generators. Mastering was handed over to Simon of BlackArtAudio. Stylistically Krane’s new album is to be placed in the postmetal/- rock genre.

 

ROAMER is the band of the Swiss singer and composer Samuel Blatter. He has been writing songs since he was a kid. During the last ten years he has found his place in the Swiss music scene as a composer and producer for theatre/dance as well as a keyboarder and singer in different bands. In his songs he is not only processing his personal story but also a large range of musical influences covering early rock n’roll, post-rock, kraut-rock, noise, trip-hop, free jazz, idm or industrial rock. His music is marked by the struggle between personal misfortune and high spirits. Love, faith and the urge to dance are competing for influence on the sound with the dark sides of life resulting in a highly suspenseful and energetic but brutally compelling music. ROAMER came into life in 2008 to strive for their unique sound. This eclectic approach is also apparent in the musical background of his fellow band members which are influenced by idols like Sonic Youth, Melvins or Led Zeppelin. ROAMER has released two EP’s so far. For their upcoming tour in October they will join forces with their longtime friend MiWi La Lupa from the US who has contributed some beautiful vocals on the upcoming ROAMER album, which is going to be released via Czar Of Revelations in early 2018.

METAL NEXUS (USA) "One of the best debut albums I've heard in years! Expect this to be on various best of lists when the year winds down to a close."
 
PURE ROCK RADIO (CANADA) “On their debut album NEO NOIRE impress with mixing different styles like alternative, post/psychedelic rock and heavy metal."
 
LORDS OF METAL (NL) - 87/100 : "Neo Noire is the newest rock sensation from Switzerland. The most impressive thing about ‚Element’ is that, despite of the wide spectrum of music that it covers and the different vocals styles of Rotter and Baumgartner, the album never sounds fragmented and clearly shows off a unique Neo Noire sound."
 
VISIONS (DE) - 8/12 : "NEO NOIRE are deeply rooted in the alternative rock of the 90s and know how to use these stylistic devices and sounds as if they had been present at that time.“
 
LEGACY (DE) - 12/15 : - "And all this makes NEO NOIRE so refreshingly different and exciting, since no song is similar to the others, but everything is still homogeneous and flawless. A powerful debut album.“
 
SCREAM (NO) - 5/6 : - "NEO NOIRE present a very strong mix. The album brings up goose pumps and I did not register any low point!"
 
ARTNOIR (CH) "Neo Noire have recorded an album that surprised me as much as rarely an other one in the genre of alternative rock. The music not only brings back an almost forgotten genre, it also shows that rock can still be played virtuosically and full of contagious honesty."
 
BEE METAL (FR) "Element is an album with a shade of light and shadows. An album full of melodies and heaviness, brilliantly led by musicians unaccustomed to the genre, without falling into nostalgia or disguised tribute. A great surprise for fans of the genre.“
