Puissance (Sweden)
"Mother of Disease - remastered edition with bonus track" Digipak CD 2008, Equilibrium Music
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ recommended ] : [ add to cart ]
Following their overtly confrontational early releases, on their 3rd CD Puissance set to resurrect the ghosts of Cold War and the obsession with all things thermonuclear via a more melodic and refined approach to their Neo-Classical Industrial.

In the year 1999, while mankind sat unnaware of their fate and wondering if the moon would drift away into the far reaches of space as the XXth century came to an end, Puissance would reappear, clad in shining armour.

With the Industrial rust of early days properly polished, the Swedish duo would further explore their talent for graceful arrangements set to Militaristic Neo-Classical music. Following the overtly confrontational offerings of "Let Us Lead" and "Back In Control", Puissance were now set to resurrect the ghosts of Cold War and the obsession with all things thermonuclear that haunted the planet - the Mother of Disease, as they would call it - over that period. Brooding hymns to suicidal heroism, devotional praises to a new god that would finally bring closure to the human race, the screeching of metal twisting and melting - all of this would find its place in Puissance's own beautiful vision of the impending apocalypse, that they so ingeniously depict on "Mother of Disease".

"Mother of Disease" is the third full length album produced by Puissance, and also their third re-issue on Equilibrium Music, following the early "Let Us Lead" and "Back In Control" releases, and last year's new album, "Grace of God". Much like it's predecessors on this fine collection, it has been re-mastered and enhanced with one bonus track, presented in a matte-blue deluxe digipak edition.

"Back In Control" Digipak CD 2007, Equilibrium Music
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ recommended ] : [ add to cart ]
Puissance's second full-length album, one which has consolidated their status as forerunners in the Industrial/Militaristic scenario, which hereby starts to take on a more Neo-Classical orientation. Deluxe remastered edition with one bonus track.

Following the awe-inspiring debut "Let Us Lead", Puissance would return a couple of years later to unleash "Back In Control", a cynical tribute to human evolution and how such evolution inevitably seems to dictate the end of the World and mankind's own extinction. The impending man-made apocalypse which Söderlund obsessively narrates is superbly illustrated by epic martial compositions, to which the pace is set by loud marching drums and Industrial percussion. A compelling work of art, that would bring Industrial music to a new climax thanks to the glorious Neo-Classical arrangements that Puissance have developed for the album.

Originally issued via Cold Meat Industry in a 2000 copies limited edition, this rare classic is now finally made available again through Equilibrium Music, who have also recently re-issued the band's debut "Let Us Lead". "Back In Control" has been re-mastered and enhanced with one bonus track, presented in a deluxe digipak edition with embossed cover.

Puissance (Sweden)
"Grace of God" Digipak CD 2007, Equilibrium Music
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ recommended ] : [ add to cart ]
The cogwheels on the Puissance warmachine are back to work, as defiant and innovative as ever. "Grace of God" re-invents the current notion of Martial-Pop, with their own superior combination of sumptuous Neo-Classical and Industrial music.

Three years after "State Collapse", the cogwheels on the Puissance-warmachine have been fine-tuned and put to work again, in a crushing motion that seems to be as defiant and innovative as ever. Forerunners in blending post-Industrial soundscapes with seemingly Wagnerian inspired classical scores, the Swedish duo's controversial portrayal of human life often tends to raise a mix of conflicting feelings towards them.

In keeping with such tradition, this return by Puissance serves as a lucid statement on current world affairs. In Soderlund's own words, ""Grace of God" is partially meant as a commentary on contemporary events both social and political. Our goal is to inform yet retain a poetic undertone to frame our analysis of world politics and objectives. This album focus heavily on the foreign policy of western civilizations particularly inspired by neoconservatives and other proponents of economically based genocides in third world countries. Rather than subscribing to any political agenda, Puissance stands out as artists against the political and financial motives that have led up to numerous unresolvable conflicts that are on the verge of plunging us into the third world war."

Musically, "Grace of God" could well be referred to as a re-definition of the currently over-abused Martial-Pop term, yet Puissance's own superior combination of sumptuous Neo-Classical and Industrial elements raises any potential Pop anthem to an entirely distinct level. More melodic and vocal-oriented than before, this latest opus also comes to expose a more rhythmic approach that had been hinted at in previous releases, but which has now morphed into a powerful and relentless driving force in Söderlund and Möller's compositions. Compellingly militant as well as beautifully apocalyptic, "Grace of God" finds Puissance in top form, presenting a fine compendium of all bits and pieces that the band have been flirting with throughout their career and incorporating them in a unique style which will again set new standards, as they have been known to do in previous outputs.

"Grace of God" is available in deluxe Digipak edition, containing a data track whose contents can be unlocked only via a custom made player made available here. Equilibrium Music will also be releasing a re-mastered and re-designed edition of the band's 1998 album "Back In Control" at the same time.

"Let Us Lead" Digipak CD 2005, Equilibrium Music
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ temp. out of stock ] : [ pre-order ]
Originaly released on CMI in 1996, "Let Us Lead" stills stands as one of the most impressive and groundbreaking releases in the Industrial/Militaristic fusion that has become so popular recently. Finally re-issued on deluxe Digipak with one bonus track.

Carefuly elaborated overwhelming orchestrations brought to Puissance's Industrial structures a disturbing apocalyptic touch, impregnated with somber beauty and bitter, often polemic, spoken-word speeches.

Announced for re-release on various occasions, "Let Us Lead" is finally made available again, with re-mastered sound and an additional bonus track, presented in matte-black deluxe digipak edition, with classy UV spot-varnish finishing.

A release which is sure to be fondly welcomed or remembered in any totalitarian heart, and which we are proud to offer on the 25th of April.
