Warming Up the Reactor of ALTERNATYWNA TWIERDZA 2008 - HOT RAIN concert
11th July 2008 • start 21:00 - KORONA Hotel, Noworudzka Street 1


presentation: Hot RainHot Rain`s roots go back to the year 2001 when Mariusz Skarbiński - the leader and composer of the group, created a project focusing on the electronic music. At the beginning they took the inspiration from bands such as Dead Can Dance, Massive Attack and Faithless. So such sounds you can find in the first tracks of Hot Rain. In 2002 the group leader changed the members of the group preparing a completely new electro project with a female vocal which was supposed to be the perfect source for bringing dynamism and romantics to the music. The invited Iwona was also writing lyrics and Paweł was supporting the band with programming and arrangements. Step by step Hot Rain was closing to a more dynamic rhythm section and modern sounds, and the bands like VNV Nation, Covenant, Prodigy and Kraftwerk had more influence on the band’s compositions.
presentation: Hot Rain First concerts took place in Szczecin`s clubs and from the beginning of 2003 the group was recording a demo material that was warmly welcomed by the music genre fans. Hot Rain got the opportunity to present their works in the TV programme "Fonograf" on the local TV station TVP3. There were two clips recorded from the demo material: "For your peace" and "Electric love", which were played on TV many times after televiewers requests. "Electric love" appeared in the local radio charts and stayed there in the top ten tracks for many weeks.
In March 2003 Hot Rain played as a support on the Melotron`s (German group) concert. After that there were other propositions. The band played in Szczecin, Poznań (Poland), Schwedt and Grimmen (Germany) and also in Slovakia for the invitation of friendly groups Kifoth and L.I.O.B. The year 2005 brought a temporary break in live performances because of the vocalist`s pregnancy. The band took the time to work in the studio on the new material and expand the studio equipment by analog synthesizers. In 2006 Hot Rain took part in a competition for the best remix organized by DJ RAM and A Different Drum Label. The group with success recorded the remix with Colony 5 vocals, which was released in the album "Virtual Server – Setup". Meanwhile new remixes appeared, and this time at the request of German band FP and the Polish DJ and producer Sthilmann. From the beginning of 2007 the group changed completely their web page, and in February 2007 in the label Atum Records releases EP "Crown of Emotions". In 2008 the band releases their first fully-length album "Rights of Love".

WIKTOR 37
 ALTERNATYWNA TWIERDZA presentation: WIKTOR 37  ALTERNATYWNA TWIERDZA presentation: WIKTOR 37 At sources of the music of the project WIKTOR 37 lie doubtless electronic ruins on the matter of a sound circumjacent us noises. One can himself succeed in finding in them relationships with synthetic veterans as well as industrial noises of cracks of sweet the eighties. An essential feature of this music is the structure of a soundscapes. Further is not what to announce. Unnecessary comparisons with other creators deliver only misunderstandings.
In the instrumentarium: computers, keyboards, microphones, the light and the movement.
Except author`s compositions and cooperations with other artists (Mikrokilla, TOT, Gorthaur, Frozen Prozac, Jura) in the acquired possessions of the WIKTOR 37 project are found numerous covers and remikses of such artists as: Combichrist, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Gorthaur.

MAIN STAGE
12th July 2008 • start 18:00
Kłodzko Fortress, Grodzisko Street 1


Deathcamp Project
 ALTERNATYWNA TWIERDZA presenatation: Deathcamp Project  ALTERNATYWNA TWIERDZA presenatation: Deathcamp Project "We’re just a part of the game in which the main prize is death..."
Deathcamp Project was formed in October 2001 as a direct reaction to an obvious lack of goth-rock sounds within Polish dark, independent music scene. During the last 6 years Void (vocals, guitar, lyrics) and Betrayal (bass, electronic and production) have created their own, intriguing mixture of sounds taking their inspiration from goth-rock of The Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, The Cure and Fields of the Nephilim, electro sound of Clan of Xymox as well as murderous sound of a drum machine (a nod towards industrial group Laibach).The combination works well with a polished, dark image the band presents on stage.
Rhytmic and somewhat catchy songs combined with an original tone of Void’s voice make the band easily recognisable on both Polish and international independent scene.
The band has played at many club events and big festivals in Poland (f.e. Castle Party 2006), Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Great Britain, Ukraine, Lithuania, Hungary. And supported such great bands as: Clan of Xymox (Hol), NFD (UK) [Tony Pettitt’s band - ex Fields of the Nephilim], Cinema Strange (USA), The Birthday Massacre (Can), Closterkeller (Pl).
One of forthcoming gigs will be at the biggest dark independent festival - German Wave Gotik Treffen in Liepzig (11.05.2008). Every year there are over 35 thousands fans from different parts of the world.
Deathcamp`s songs were played in numerous radio shows, resulting in the song Dead Hours being included on the prestige compilation album Minimax pl 3, compiled by Piotr Kaczkowski (polish John Peel) himself and released by Radio 3. Minimax pl 3 sold over 11 thousands copies.

The band develops and experimentalises with tone through the elements of trance, ambient or shoegaze, so the created music would operate not only in sound sphere but also move the other senses. By the critics they are compared to such stars like Sisters of Mercy, Killing Joke, Collage, XIII Stoleti, Gevin Friday or New Model Army. Daimonion perfectly presents in concerts because they have their own, powerful and well-rounded tone. The band can pride themselves of joint performance with such stars like Fields of the Nephilim (in Warsaw’s club "Stodola"), Love Like Blood, Breath of Life (in Krakow’s club "Korona"), Sex Gang Children, VNV Nation, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio (in Vienna).

They had honor to perform during "Dark Night" concert within the legendary festival in Jarocin, they took part in two editions of international festival Dark Nation Day in Vienna. Daimonion performed within Halo! Gramy festival organized by Polsat TV, and also at "Independent Playing" in Łódź, organized by Niezal.org. This year (2008) they were invited as co-headliner of the first day of Creeper Fest festival in Vilnius. Daimonion took the third place within Mokotowska Jesien Muzyczna right after such famous bands like Myslovitz and Atmosphere.
As a result of co-operation with Love Industry in Lodz there was released reedition of our debut album "Daimonion", available in such store chains as Empik, Media Markt, Merlin.pl, whose premiere took place on 15th June 2007.
