Fusing hard techno and industrial with acid house, Empirion began life at the pinnacle of the UK acid house movement.

…having met while out and about on the rave party scene, they are famed for remixes of such bands as Front 242, Fluke, Praga Kahn, China Drum, Cubanate, even Yorkshire rockers Terrorvision. Oh and don’t forget that immense remix of The Prodigy’s “Firestarter”, which put the band on the front foot as they dominated dance floors around the globe.

They supported the Prodigy throughout Europe as well as racking up many high profile European festival appearances alongside the likes of Kraftwerk and toured America as a part of Megadog’s “Big Top Tour”, alongside acts like Moby, 808 State, Eat Static, System 7 and DJ’s Grooverider, Derrick May and BT.

Then tragedy hit when original member Glennie died from cancer and the band was put on hiatus. But now with renewed vigour, Empirion have reformed and are back in action!

Once again the trademark squawks of analogue madness are on show, alongside pulsating beats and awesome breakdowns. Perfect Infest material!

Bombastic Cyber Punk!

A powerful combination of industrialised percussion and electrified melodies. The music is passionate yet furious: with dark hook-laden synth lines, crunchy guitars, metal grinders, mechanised sounds.
Combined with the vocals, expressing internal rage and raw emotion, all coming together in a brain-damaging session!

One of the top Industrial acts to come out of the US recently. A subversive DIY style of art turning any object into part of his musical arsenal, with mixed media provoking reactions and turning heads.

Touring with the likes of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Lords of Acid, KMFDM and Die Krupps…

We are thrilled to welcome Chant to the Infest stage for their UK debut.

…THIS IS GOING TO BE TRULY BANGING!!

Ethan Fawkes confirmed for Infest 2015! [Feb. 27th, 2015|11:55 am]

An electronic treasure from Belgium, his 90s grunge and metal background has become re-oriented towards techno, EBM and electro industrial music.

You will hear a merge of guitar loops and electronic sequences driven by harsh vocals with recognisable influences including Ministry, KMFDM, Front 242 and Suicide Commando.

Ethan Fawkes mixes the opposites and it’s not always easy to directly grasp his sound, but that’s what differentiates this artist from the endless EBM troops!

One of the hardest working, most prolific artists on the scene who remixes and is remixed by a huge number of artists representing the whole spectrum, from centro-euro techno, to northern EBM electro Industrial culture. He may not be the most familiar name in our Industrial underground, but its unlikely you haven’t already heard one of his remixes somewhere!

Intelligent techno for the dance floor, in all its varieties.
Too dark and underground for the techno scene?
A bit too techno-minded for the EBM scene?
…you decide! We think you’ll be impressed.

Mechanical Cabaret confirmed for Infest 2015! [Feb. 13th, 2015|12:00 pm]

A shot of punk ethic, chuck in a substantial measure of odd pop glamour, a sprinkling of bleeping electronics and shake vigorously in the style of the late great Fad Gadget, and the resulting saucy cocktail is called Mechanical Cabaret.

From the neon­-lit, decadent heart of London, with a razor sharp wit and sound to match, these British electro­punks produce a compelling brand of bruised and abused emotional, yet defiantly energetic electronic music.

They combine dark, sleazy electronics with an edgy, disco­punk feel; their obtuse, intense melodies scatter, tease and probe your psyche, constructed from spiky, brooding synthetic sounds. Sampled noise, quasi-­industrial synth­pop rhythms, and throbbing, driving bass lines are all topped off by lyrical cynical observations of life, delivered with a deadpan dose of sardonic attitude and scathingly British black humour.

Formed from the ashes of Nekromantik, who performed at the very first Infest back in 1998, we are very pleased to host Mechanical Cabaret at the very latest Infest 2015!

With an array of recognizable influences from Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Jane’s Addiction and IAMX, London based electro-rock cabaret artists, AlterRed create a unique melting-pot of sound and imagery.

AlterRed have made a dramatic and impressive impact on a wide variety of audiences with their flamboyant live shows. Self medicated madness is their remit. Love, lust, lunacy and loss are their tales to tell.

Musically in the synthpop vein of Depeche Mode with sexy German vocals, Melotron dare to be simultaneously catchy, danceable and openly emotional.

They immerse the listener in a stormy dance party deep amid an ocean of feelings, making them one of Germany’s most successful and popular advocates of intelligent electronic dance music. Whether singing in German or English it simply doesn’t matter, the music speaks for itself!

…You will smile, you will weep, but most of all you will dance!

L’Âme Immortelle are back! The legend has awakened.

With new fire and new gigs, the sombre fairy tale can finally continue!

For too long a silence has dominated the mutual project of Thomas Rainer and Sonja Kraushofer. Five years ago they played their last concert at the M’era Luna festival, more than three years have passed since they released their last studio album “Momente“, and it has been ten years since they played the UK.

After a highly successful German tour they are preparing to add all the major European festivals to their schedule and we are very excited that they have included Infest on their schedule. A band exhibiting the manifold faces of the art of Electronic Goth re-emerges from the shadows!

First band up for Infest 2015 is the twisted party animal that is COCKSURE!

Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks/Ministry/Pigface) and Jason C. Novak (Acumen Nation/Acucrack/Czar) bridge the gap between Wax Trax! era industrial and the future sounds of mass corruption…
 
Paranoid, narcissistic bullshit, barked and howled over the top of long, endurance testing, panic-attack hit songs. After triumphant appearances at Cold Waves (USA) and BIMFest (Belgium) they are coming for the UK.

!You have been Warned!
