2003 // The Year We Made
During nuclear spring 2003 four motley-looking guys dressed
in black with
up and black leather charm met on earth to design a new synthetic dawn. 4 AM, adrenachaos rising, bodies sweating, hearts beating.
had a dream: creating a rock 'n' roll band with
a gritty, highly seducing blend of punk attitude and industrial sonic attacks. Machines meet sweat and blood: enter the matrix, neuromancer, rust. Theta Wave Resonance. Theta Division growing.
Victor Love, Grace Khold, Darin Yevonde
, Brian Wolfram.
Inc. was born.
Adore the future, worship revolution.
On the 8th of May 2003, 8.53 PM, the band started
to work on its first, raw and powerful release in a rusty and dirty cellar beneath the shallow suburbia of Rome. The result was "10.000 Watts Of Artificial Pleasures": a storming melting
pot of industrial overloads, R'n'R razor-shaped
guitars, Goth decadence, fast and furious
punk attitude, pop melodies and techno hammer-beats.
was such carnage, Grace sleeping on the floor, Victor smashing guitars and computers, Darin travelling all time, drinking too much red bull to stay awake. Those were weeks of lust, wild parties and good morning headaches, but Dope Stars
Inc. always stayed on the track, guitars roaring and machines burning.
The EP blew the press away in few weeks, getting an unbelievable feedback from magazines and collecting top score reviews and articles on the big press all around the world.
UK said: "arrogant and bratty they
may appear (that'll be the Motley Crue influence then), but it's great to see a band with
balls walking the walk instead of just talking the talk!".
Crowds were hailing
the new flesh.
getting bigger and bigger.
about to explode.
During winter 2004 Dope Stars
Inc. upgraded the Operating System to the next, ultimate level. A new terrific piece
of hardware replaced Brian at guitars making Dope Stars
Inc. one of the most poisonous and lethal stage-weapons around: Alex Vega, formerly known as the guitar player of the roman
wave-rock sensation Klimt 1918 joined
Welcome to the (electric) jungle mate!
2 years of hard work, wild rumors, unreal offers and long negotiations the silence is finally broken. On February 2005 Dope Stars
Inc. signed an ambitious
record deal with
the German Trisol Music Group GmbH, the well known and respected label based in Dieburg, already
working for successful
acts like London After
Midnight, L'Ame Immortelle, Christian Death, Cinema
Strange, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Samsas Traum, Kirlian Camera and Sopor
Aeternus, just to name
a few. The band also inked
a deal with
4RT Management, currently working on the band's career development.
Infection ready to be spread. Machines roaring again.
The band was recording
the long-awaited full-length debut album "Neuromance", with producer
Thomas Rainer (L'ÂME IMMORTELLE) and producer
legend John Fryer
(Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, H.I.M., White Zombie) and has been released
on 28 August 2005.
We were ready for the masses, now the masses are ready for us.
A new breed of overdriven electro-dandies is born.
You have been warned.
