Treponem Pal To Release Remastered "Aggravation"

Metal Mind Productions present re-release of the second full-length album by the most respected industrial band from France - Treponem Pal. "Aggravation" (1991) was a record that revealed Treponem Pal's powerful, sensitive and tribal elements. The band focused on the vision of enlarging industrial's scope rather than narrowing it to one style that could be easily described ... or dismissed. This time the mixing was made by Roli Mosiman from Swans. The industrial scene was at that time fully in bloom – the genre gained the proper respect not only in Europe, but also across the Atlantic, where bands from Chicago's Wax Trax label – Front Line Assembly and KMFDM – got extremely popular. The international media also begun noticing Treponem Pal – a band previously associated only with the underground scene. The attention was caused mainly by the excellent remix of Kraftwerk's "Radioactivity". Asked back then about choosing this track, which is totally different from the rest of the compositions on "Aggravation", Marco Neves commented: "I like the contrast. That's why we've done this song. It's a real contrast to Treponem Pal. Maybe in the future we will try to make some songs with more contrast… but in fact what we are doing is to make a contrast inside the songs."

New digipack edition is digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc and limited to 2000 copies. The release date is scheduled for 27th October 2008 in Europe and 25th November 2008 in USA (via MVD). More...

Treponem Pal Ready New Album, "Weird Machine"

TREPONEM PAL release their new album 'Weird machine' to LISTENABLE records in Europe on the 24th of March.

With several cult albums critically and internationally acclaimed under its belt, a pioneer's career and various punchy collaborations (Young Gods, Nine Inch Nails, Prong, Ministry, Faith No More...), the Parisian precursor of groovy industrial-metal carbonizes the record industry with a new lp mixed with napalm. Recorded in Geneva, produced by David Weber and written by Marco Neves (vocals, development), Didier B. (keyboards, samplers), Polak (guitars) and the late Paul Raven (eminent bass player of Killing Joke, Godflesh, Pigface, Murder Inc ., Prong, Ministry), the ballistic missile plans to collide our boomers in April 2008.

Industrially toxic, metallic, electronic, ethnic, electric, psychedelic, hypnotic and always more eclectic, Treponem Pal signs with this noxious "Weird Machine" a proper declaration of war. A urban time bomb of a manifesto, pure weapon of massive destruction and distraction seriously dangerous and open minded. A sonic stream roller to check on stage during the European tour, already planned this year.
