Hail to you mortals! Again this year we will be at WGT at Leipzig. If you see our T-Shirts, come and say hello ! If it is still light, we drink beer also ;-) If it is dark, we will have probably enough...
Being young in the 80'ies, wearing black and going to dark electro and new-wave parties. That is what you think about when you listen to this album. Peter Van Bogaert is well known for his retro sound with Liquid G. productions. Also this time we hear vocals of Kim De Laet which makes the track 'Explanation' a must have in your collection if you like Dark Electro. Those who like old school EBM will like this album as well. Often people say it always the same over and over again. Peter proves he knows his music, listen to the more complex song and album title song 'Overdose'. Musicians know what we mean.
You will feel if you're transported back in time, only when we had this sound in the 80'ies everyone would go crazy. We tried it at a party, and people were dancing as they knew it from years ago. The album is something you play in your car, only be careful you don't exceed the speed limit. Ok, let's goto Germany and play it there. Time for the rest of the world to acknowledge that good electro is still being made in Belgium. You feel the darkness in this album, something I often think is only possible by people living in a doom thinking society :)
Conclusion for GothVille, damn good album. Personal favorite track is Fuck the system. It contains it all.
Drop That Fat Bomb
Fuck The System
Lost In Your Dreams
Control Your Mind
Overdose (Extended Chaos Remake)

On september 27 and 28 We all should visit this music and art festival in the Netherlands, The Hague. The festival has been presenting programs focused on adventurous contemporary visual and performing arts, architecture and digital culture annually since 2005.
What is happening the last few years in the world of dark scene events? You see a lot of events being announced and after some promotion being cancelled. And those who did took place are not getting a sequel. Sometimes you hear that the people behind the screens are in big dept, with even nasty personal consequences. The GothVille crew started in 2000 with some parties. Before that time we all had experience in events with mainstream music, mainly for the non-profit of our youth movement where we all were part of. We knew what it means to organize an event for +3500 people, so we thought it would be easy for a smaller theme like the Goth scene.
Many friends ask me why I always am so exited when WGT is getting near. I must say, I'm a kinda guy who has a phone gadget countdown. It shows me how many days there are left before we departure to Leipzig. At the time of this writing, it states 341 days left.
we are talking about it for a long time now. Waiting for the last pieces to fit in our new website project was even for our team a real pain in the ass. But we hate it to do it wrong, so we thought waiting was the best option. Normally you should have seen the new site on-line at the beginning of May 2012. But during April of this year we had a major problem with our radio project which made it impossible to proceed. We hope to publish more news about it here and other channels as soon we have all details.
In the mean time we are making the last adjustments to the new site and hope to be ready somewhere this month. We think it will be an improvement for all our citizens, and hope to please your darkness once again.
It will be: Goth, Industrial, Music, Video, Community, Social, Weird, Fucked-up, Black, Sick, Rebellion and probably parental advisory explicit content !
