    Die Form
    "Baroque Equinox"

    Label: Trisol Music (2017)

    "Baroque Equinox" is a carnal and courageous thrust into a new age. A manifesto both showing the future and looking back at was once was. A new equinox. Night and day are alike, a metaphor that could not describe DIE FORM any better. Day and night, Eros and Thanatos united, even perennialy tied to each other. The one is impossible without the other, and for one sweet and endless moment it remains unclear in which direction the pendulum will swing. Only one thing is certain: It will push the masses to the dancefloor with a gripping beat and visionary electronics. Brilliantly crafted by these pioneers of electronic music, "Baroque Equinox" embraces powerful Electro and the Avantgarde, baroque's mesmerising opulence and a sterile beat, rhapsody and brute force. Sinful night and innocent day set the stage for a work of hypnotising potency, for a panopticon of Electro, Industrial, Techno, classical music, eroticism, poetry and the Butoh theatre of the far east. Never before have peccable club culture and artistic ambition been getting along so well.

    The times in which the French couple freely gave in to fetish and sex are equally over as their era of pure Bach worshipping which catapulted them out of the dark scene and into the consciousness of serious music lovers worldwide. Today, as a mark to celebrate this special event of a baroque equinox, they give birth to a new beast about to bestow new facets upon the world of Dark Electro. A beast with a Janus face and two hearts. A suffering human being in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, a creature carrying the untouched purity of nature in his heart and the marching beat of the industrial revolution in his mind. "Baroque Equinox" is a moment floating freely, a state that can any minute turn towards light or darkness, towards silence or chaos. Just like in one of Gustave Courbet's ("L'Origine du monde") pictures in which a hint of a looming abyss is ever present despite all aesthetic beauty, this album is a true testimony for the times we live in and yet sounds like having fallen out of time. How they still manage to pull off something like this after a staggering 40 year career? This, to be sure, will once again remain their secret.
