After three years it's finally here, the long awaited follow-up album to the massively successful “Termination Bliss”, and it's a bombraid of depression, death, sex and rock. ”Night Electric Night” is tough and black, yet seductive and passionated in its expression of the city’s destructive nightside.
By expanding structures and using even more varied elements the deathglammers have strengthened and deepened the richness in their trademark of super-dark rock.
Guitarist, songwriter and producer Nightmare Industries takes a drag on his cigarette and leans forward. “This album is the very mirror of our last years and our struggle through this time up until now. It deals with a whole spectrum of emotions, but without losing that straightforward nerve of raw dark feverish rock music a la Deathstars. Even though the songs vary more now, from the ripping ”Night Electric Night” to the seriousness in ”Via the End”, which I wrote the very night I found out about my brother's suicide, it holds an honest consequence right through the album."
”Night Electric Night” is about their lives and their experiences, their personal issues and the action-/horrordrama which represents the manic environment that the band exists within. It deals a lot with reflections of situations right then and there, and this time the Swedes have really put it all together in an exquisite way. The Deathglam-style they originated with their first two albums "Synthetic Generation" and "Termination Bliss" sounds more huge and alive than ever; it’s dark and cold, yet massively heavy and warm - a paradox that defines the very essence of Deathstars. With the combination of their cynical irony - constant black humor that so well defines the band - and the hard seriousness that are the fundaments of every song, Deathstars walk the fine line of sophisticated darkness with the always clear and present vibe of sex, guts and horrorish vogue. It is hellish hot stuff, but also entertaining, and somewhat frightening.
Following the success of their previous album "Termination Bliss", Deathstars won the award for Best Newcomers at the Golden Gods Awards in 2007 as presented by the UK Metal Hammer Magazine. They also won the gold title, the "Champions Belt" at the TV- and radio music contest Get In The Ring, after swiping the floor with all the other contenders at the Hammersmith Apollo, London in 2007. During the time span of a year Deathstars played nearly 200 shows in Europe and apart from their headlining tours they also toured Europe together with bands like Cradle of Filth and KORN. After Radio-/TV- and sales chart entries, occasionally topping them, nobody who is anybody has missed Deathstars. "Night Electric Night" was recorded in Metrosonic Studios, New York City, USA and in Future Legends Studios, Stockholm, Sweden. Produced by Nightmare Industries and mixed by Stefan Glaumann at Toytown Studios, Stockholm, Sweden. Deathstars have toured the world with “Night Electric Night” in 2009.
In November 2011, the band was on tour together with RAMMSTEIN!
This is also why the Swedes are now - just in time before the tour - going to release their hottest tracks on a best-of album of the last three discs, entitled "The Greatest Hits On Earth". There will be two completely new songs on it, which were composed solely for this best-of album, as well as 14 more pearls. You bend your knee devotedly before the DEATHSTARS, craving for more before you can say Night Electric Night - Pure Death Glam Magic!
Now the band returns with a blast when they release their long-anticipated fourth studio album. „The Perfect Cult“ was released in June 2014.
