Venus In Furs "Dead Europe"


  For a long period of time, Venus In Furs was believed to be the lost binding bond between post-punk and new wave music of Greece. Despite however, their exceptional appearances and their three demos, recorded from summer 1985 until their final split in 1993, their only musical inheritance was the extremely rare album “New Horizon”, in 10 copies!! The limited number of copies resulted due to numerous technical sound problems that lead to the discontinuance of the album’s production. Almost twenty years after this first edition, B-otherside records represented in 2011 this masterly missing album that incorporates gothic sound, post-punk and new wave with harmony and aptitude. The sound mix and the elaboration of songs were prepared by the two founding members of the group, an attempt that indicates their reformation. The 250 numbered copies of the vinyl lp contain a two-page colored inset along with the band’s photographs of period 1985-1989, as well as a full biography and a two-page black and white inset with lyrics and the six original hand made posters. Furthermore, the package includes a numbered reprint in A4 size of one of these posters.

 This year the legendary ‘80’s post-punk group, returns in full ecstatic blast with a new album under the title  “Dead Europe” , a record pulsing with the reverberations of the global metamorphosis. Their naturally “distorted” sound based on dark wave with psychedelic and roots influences , forms the subversive rock music of the near future. The lp is released in a limited run of 300  hand numbered copies,150 of them are in violet coloured wax and the rest 150 in classical black vinyl, containing an inner sleeve with lyrics and informations.The band offered for download the full album including the artwork here.
