Do you remember how Cold Transmission started?
Before we became a label we started with releasing a digital compilation series named ZEITGEIST. These compilations are specifically designed to help dark underground music reach new and wider audiences. Since 2018 we have successfully released 15 compilations already featuring hundreds of up-and-coming bands.

With ‘ZEITGEIST+’ we are now starting a new chapter of this compilation series – it will be also available on CD for the first time and will feature 17 awesome bands from our contemporary music scene..many great bands to discover! Thanks to all bands for their kind contribution and trust.

If you like what you hear, please check out the individual Bandcamp pages of each band in the track info for individual track downloads and their further releases.

Incirrina - Lip Led Scream

Dark electronic/minimal synth duo from Athens, Greece.

Lip Led Scream is the 2nd studio album by Incirrina . It features 10 songs which were written during a painful period for all of us – personally and globally speaking – and at the same time in a state of rapture. Our lips felt tightly closed. We wanted to scream, to turn scream into expression not just as a way out but as a way to understand. To react against but also to respond to a feeling of internal chaos, helplessness and fear of a world collapsing outside.

Solitude, violence, despair, social injustice, biopolitics, but also love, humaneness and coming of age are the main themes of the album.

Colombian darkwave duo NOROMAKINA, presents its debut album “Vile Vortex”. Formed by Mel Zb and Pluszeichen, NOROMAKINA combines the present with the past in a wide palette of sounds from vintage and modern analog synthesizers and machines, getting a lo-fi character through sundry processes and effects. The result is a dark and mysterious atmosphere with a lot of power.
