To all die-hard goths the word will forever be synonymous with icons THE SISTERS OF MERCY, being the title of their first recording.
So it is in the “Black October” of this 30th anniversary year of THE SISTERS OF MERCY that Italy’s LATEXXX TEENS now deliver the knowingly-titled “Adrenochrome Redux”.
But this title is no superficial nod to the masters.
“Adrenochrome Redux” includes a stunning (to some probably sacrilegious) cover of “Temple Of Love” featuring LORD OF THE LOST vocalist Chris Harms - plus a remix by long-term SISTERS OF MERCY member Simon Denbigh from recently-revived SISTERS contemporaries THE MARCH VIOLETS, featuring lead vocals by Rosie Garland of THE MARCH VIOLETS herself.
In total, “Adrenochrome Redux” is an epic 13 track round-up of rarities and remixes never before available on CD.
A full "Redux" - of 5 tracks previously only available digitally, of re-recordings of 2 early LXT classics updated to the new live-drum powered LXT sound, of 5 brand new remixes, plus the "Temple Of Love" cover.
The opening 5 tracks find LATEXXX TEENS – who share guitarist Fabrice La Nuit with DOPE STARS INC. – reunited with DOPE STARS INC.’s Victor Love as co-producer. These 5 tracks were originally released in digital form only as the “Adrenochrome” EP, at the end of 2010.
Each track is then given a radical make-over in different styles by different DWA artists - TERROLOKAUST, FREAKANGEL, DYM and SIVA SIX - plus an entirely unexpected re-interpretation from THE MARCH VIOLETS.
And rounding out an already formidable tracklist, all-new re-recordings of the LATEXXX TEENS classics “Viral SublimiNation” and “(S)aint (R)evolution” – originally from the 2006 EP “Moloko & Ultraviolence”.
All 8 tracks not found on the original “Adrenochrome” digital release have been mastered by Jan L at X-FUSION MUSIC PRODUCTION.
Released late October, 2011 on Deathwatch Asia.
