The second start for one of the most important bands in the French cold-wave scene, since Wallenberg revealed himself from 1984 to 1988 with many live records supporting Play Dead, Jad Wio, Neva and many more… and several featuring on compilations, radio shows and TV appearances, which revealed them to the French audience, before a premature split, although an album was planned with EMI.
Wallenbeg is back today with a new line up around Hervé (singer and co-composer) and the release of their first real album on Manic Depression Records in 2004. Their are currently working on a second album.
Those 11 songs, which distil a nostalgic and dramatic atmosphere, are sometimes calm and quiet (« Welcome Home », « Why »), sometimes unrestrained and aggressive (« An Eye for an Eye », « Ode to Gilles ») and give this record a real personality, between Cold-Wave and Gothic Rock.
We will note the featuring of Denis Bortek (Jad Wio) on « Hypnotic » which really deserves its name, and the featuring of Elsa (Tanit) on « If I was another Man ».
