This week the current volume of Dependent´s highly acclaimed SEPTIC Compilation series entered the German Alternative Charts (DAC) on position 2. The sampler who will get the Zillo Magazine seal "of high electronic value" in their forthcoming issue is the ninth installment in this series and again combines a wealth of fresh sounds from all corners of the EBM Electro-Industrial and Futurepop scene.
Here you will find further information including extensive prelistening clips.
No, we don’t mean their place at the top of the DAC album charts, which the’ve held for the past three weeks, but instead the German Media Control charts, where tomorrow The Birthday Massacre’s new album „Pins and Needles“ will enter the Top 100!
With a video for „In The Dark“ in rotation on British TV and an album in the German pop charts, where will frontwoman Chibi and her band of Canadian gothic rockers strike next?
