In 2014, one of the scene's most popular festivals is celebrating its 10th anniversary: Cologne-based Amphi Festival. The official festival companion CD also features a jubilee-worthy line up.
Since the very beginning, the list of bands performing at Amphi Festival has been reading like a “who is who” of the international Electro- and Gothic-scene. In celebration of the festival's 10th anniversary, the organisers have put together an exquisite line up and the track listing of this year's official festival CD should also make any scene-aficionado's mouth water in earnest, as it sports a versatile selection of the best performing bands that includes everything from big names to promising new faces. With Blutengel, Mono Inc., Eisbrecher, Project Pitchfork, Hocico, Lord Of The Lost, Solar Fake, Zeromancer, Rotersand, Aesthetic Perfection or Nachtmahr, it includes some of the currently most popular acts in the scene, alongside a selection of classic pioneering bands like Front 242, Die Krupps, The Klinik, Camouflage, Clan Of Xymox and The Neon Judgment. With The Juggernauts and Torul, some up and coming attractions complete an absolutely massive line up, all of which are represented with current hits or classic tunes. And, featuring a whopping 19 tracks, “Amphi Festival 2014” not only pushes the limits of the CD format,but is also the ideal companion and souvenir of this year's instalment, as well as one of the best and most versatile compilations to come out of the scene, this year... all at the sensationally low price of an EP! Like every year, this jam-packed compilation is a must-own for anyone interested in Electro, Gothic or related music.
