Veil of Light - Talisman

Created by M as a side-project and one-man-band, Zurich (Switzerland) based Cold Wave/Post-Punk outfit Veil Of Light emerged in late 2012. With Veil Of Light, floating layers of synth, reverb drenched guitars, shattering rhythms and gloomy vocals come together to create haunting songs of light in darkness.

Written, performed and recorded all alone in a bunker at the border of Zurich, the debut EP »Veil Of Light« was released by Swedish industrial wave label BELÄTEN in May 2013.The tape was characterized as »six songs of ice cold gothgaze splendor« and it sold out in less than two months. The follow-up »Cold Skin« was released in late November by Swiss label EDITION GRIS in form of a 7″ single containing two songs, combined with two digital bonus tracks. With »Cold Skin«, M delves more and more into the abysses of melancholia.

In November 2014 Veil Of Lights full length debut LP Ξ was released by BELÄTEN. Due to overwhelming critics and after different gig offers, the one-man-band evolved into a two-piece outfit in order to play live. Veil Of Light has played headlining tours in Italy in 2014 and Skandinavia in 2015 as well as many Club shows in Switzerland, Germany, Holland etc. and Festivals like Wave Gotik Treffen Leipzig (WGT), Incubate Festival Tilburg etc., sharing the stage with bands like The Soft Moon, Zola Jesus, Christian Death, Lebanon Hanover, Dark Horses,Trepaneringsritualen, King Dude…

Synthetic Soundscapes of Modern Urban Morality

Keeping our promise for fresh and active artists and projects, Geheimnis Records now brings you the second compilation of bands and artists who are taking their first musical steps and request our attention and appreciation. This time the material doesn’t only focus on Greek artists. 5 of them come from France, Germany and Austria. Some of them have already released their first album or cassette tape, while others share their music through Bandcamp, YouTube and Soundcloud and this compilation is their first official discography. Geheimnis Records would like to thank them all for offering their music. Those who did it for the first time, those who provided a special edition of their song and those with whom we have collaborated in the past and still entrust their material to Geheiminis Records.

“Hante.” is the solo project of Helene de Thoury, the one half of the French duet “Minuit Machine”. She released her debut single on December 2014, and is about to release her debut album in the Summer of 2015. “Kristal Ann” is the voice of the Greek duet “Paradox Obscur”. She also has her own project (under her name) and the song “Killing Jokes” is written especially for this compilation, while her other song “Ashes of Hope” comes from her debut cd-album. “Monowelt” come from Berlin, Germany. Marta Raya and Daria Leere started recording songs last year and have played together since 2012. They have entrusted their soon to be completed debut album to our label. “Koma Koma” come from Vienna, Austria. Genio Revox, Davyd Mitma and Wolfgang Gray play their impressive guitars and accompany them with dark-deep vocals. This is their first release on a musical format. “Paradox Obscur” come from Rhodes Island, Greece. Kriistal Ann sings and composes while her partner Toxic Razor plays, composes and experiments with many different styles and genres. “23rd Underpass” are the brain-child of Costas Andriopoulos who started the group back in 2008-2009. After some setbacks during those formative years, he found a steady vocalist and lyricist in the face of Nadia Vassilopoulou and released a full-album last year. “Aga Wilk” is a female solo project from Berlin, Germany. Disco-Experimental sounds with Techno elements. The version of her song can be found only on this compilation. She is expected to release her debut album in the Summer of 2015. “Minuit Machine” come from Paris, France. Last year Helene de Thoury and Amandine Stioui released a successful debut album. The song on this compilation is a special remix exclusive to this compilation. The person behind the project “Impersonate or Die” is an artist named Nick Stonem. He comes from Athens, Greece and his aggressive Synth-Punk songs find their way onto vinyl grooves for the first time. Last but not least, “Regressverbot” from Thessaloniki, Greece are already known from their participation in our previous “No Radar” compilation. A full-length album is on the cards and has been scheduled for release on Geheiminis Records later this year or early 2016.

The compilation will be out in July 16th, 2015, in 300 hand-numbered vinyl copies, half of them in black and half in transparent blue, including an insert with lyrics, photos and details.
