THIS IS BODYWAVE!
2003 in Leipzig | Germany
The name Amnistia is both the program and a philosophy. In many languages it means amnesty. Amnistia releases their band-members from inactivity, provides freedom for creativity, it is an outlet, and their work is a verdict that their minds have transformed into sound.
The production of the long awaited third album “egotrap” took nearly 3 years. During this time the Amnistians had formative experiences that found their way onto the new tracks. For example “day of birth” is an hommage to Stefan Schötz’s first born child. Although it was constructed as an instrumental track, Boris May from Klangstabil added lyrics and vocals after intensive brainstorming with the band. And this is not the only cooperation that can be found on the new album. Carsten Jacek from [:SITD:] lent his vocals to “Absolute nothingness”, originally an instrumental track as well. Then something completely new happened: the industrial beats of Amnistia and Carstens unique voice melted into a perfect symbiosis.
The main voice of Amnistia is there too of course – singer Tino Claus rages, mourns, begs and accuses with his critical lyrics. Musically you can hear the well known crisp bass-lines, dense soundscapes and the solid drum- and snare-work; all of this is complemented by breakbeats, glitches and vocoders. The package is rounded off by a full bonus-CD of remixes. Big names like Plastic Noise Experience, Rotersand, Dupont, amGod, Accessory and Daniel Myer (Haujobb / Destroid) deliver great club tracks. The brilliant mastering was done by Krischan Wesenberg (Rotersand, Straftanz).
