Sweden’s Covenant are juggernauts of the synthpop and EBM genres. Formed in the late 1980s and inspired by the works of Kraftwerk, The Human League, Depeche Mode, Front 242, and Nitzer Ebb, Covenant have released eight studio albums and performed live in more than 40 countries. Singles such as “Lightbringer,” “Dead Stars,” “Ritual Noise,” “Brave New World,” and “Last Dance” have topped the German Alternative charts and continue to move bodies on dance floors around the world.
THE LABRYNTH is an electronic music project from Mike Wimer and Sarah Stewart based out of Seattle Washington.
The music comes from years of listening to electronic music from the 80’s, 90’s and present, finding the inspiration, and putting together songs with a more updated take on those ideas.
Aside from THE LABRYNTH, Sarah also plays keyboards and guitar with the bands AYRIA (Canada) and THE BREAK UP (USA). Mike also plays keyboards with VNV NATION (Germany), and drums with INFORMATION SOCIETY (USA) and AYRIA (Canada).
as|of…is the beginning after the definitive end. The forces and conditions that affect our being are momentary and we always redefine ourselves with as|of as our declaration.
In the fall of 2010, three veteran members of storied Minneapolis-based synth-punk projects built a new kind of collaboration. The new band would be harder and draw more heavily on the trio’s love of industrial and electronic music. A few months later, as of then…as|of was to be.
Eric, Adam and Sarah, along with new addition Kevin, continue to seek the new beginning. The evolution of sound has become richer, with fervent melodic power and ethereal tonality. As of now, the audience is more enthralled, more engaged and more moved than ever before.
as|of the future…
New music has been written, recorded, produced and set for release in spring of 2015. as|of will travel the cosmos to share their sonic gospel to the willing and those willing to be open to a future not rivaled by the past, but exceeded from it.
