code666 is proud to announce the signing of german band TODTGELICHTER.
Our cult label will release their brand new album titled “Angst” on December 3rd in a very special limited edition, together with the standard jewel-case version.
Commented the band: “After negotiations with several labels TODTGELICHTER has just signed a two-album deal with the renowned Label Aural Music/Code666, and we are really excited to work with them, having paved the path for bands such as ABORYM, NEGURA BUNGET, MANES, EPHEL DUATH, AMESOEURS and many more, the label stands for quality, non-conformism and artistic sophistication. Aural Music/Code666 has made an offer we couldn´t refuse – and we are sure they will be able to provide “Angst” with the professional presentation it needs. At the moment, we are working together to bring you a special limited edition of “Angst” besides the normal jewel case; and rest assured, it will truly live up to the meaning of the word “special”. Concerning our mini-tour with EIS and GORATH in December – we will bring the album, new merchandise and hopefully the special edition, too. This will be your first chance to lay hands on “Angst”, so be there!
Here is the Official tracklist:
01 – Café Of Lost Dreams
02 – Bestie
03 – Oblivion
04 – Phobos & Deimos
05 – Neon (feat. Nihilaz of VULVARK)
06 – Subway (feat. Eike Freese of DARK AGE)
07 – Moloch
08 – allmählich
Recorded and Mixed by Eike Freese at the Hammer Studios (GAMMA RAY, DARK AGE, CALLEJON).
Todtgelichter was formed back in 2002 but in 2010 they have definitely broken with their past of classic Teutonic BM and with “Angst” have produced a terrific masterpiece, a record that got us out of our heads and after hundreds plays hasn’t lost a bit of its emotional intensity and ability to surprise. We might call it post-metal with a Black Metal Influence, but that would be belittling because “Angst” is courageous, original, powerful, catchy, deep, moving and bloodily grand; in short, a record that cannot be ignored or confused with the tasteless tide that has been flooding the music market lately. “Angst” breaks powerfully in all senses, and Code666 is very proud to publish it.

Wormholedeath and Dreamcell11, both under mother company Aural Music, officially joined forces to produce albums from a wider range of music genres and increase the respective catalogues during 2011 and 2012. The union of the two labels is also driven by the mutual wish to release and develop “borderline” or “crossover” acts, creating music that could be placed in between the two label concepts (Extreme metal and Gothic, Ebm, Ambient). From now on, all releases by these two Aural Music’s sublabels will be developed under the same A&R direction and will carry on both logos to give more power and support to every album.
Furthermore, the union of the band rosters will give shape to a bigger potetial based on the deals with some successful artists like Raw Power, Theatres Des vampires, The Way Of Purity, Crysalys, Dismal, Lifend and many more…
A new website will be released soon as long as the announcement of new signings and releases. For further informations you can write to:

“Emotional Decompression Chamber” is the new concept album of Digitalis Purpurea. the Album is scheduled for November 12th on Dreamcell11 Entertainments, the Aural Music sublabel specialized in dark music. A cinematic record that defines a sound that uses the ideal combination sound-images as its keystone. The protagonists of the lyrics, Junichiro and Ishtar, are a modern version of Fando y Lis (first work of Alejandro Jodorowsky) chasing the legendary city called Tar on a David Lynch’s Lost Highway. The sound is the soundtrack to this imaginary film. A mixture of electro-clash beats, lysergic desert rock guitars and lo-fi vocals sometimes played from a busted grammophone. A damp cave, decadent, in which the figures appear faded, never sharp, where the substance is tinged with noir and the mind is lost forfeited in a thick consistency sensory tunnel where the end is distant and blurred, lower and lower, until the bowels of the unconscious.

She described herself with the following words:
code666 is happy to announce the signing of belgian Black Metallers Saille for the release of their debut album “Irreversible Decay”, scheduled for february 2011 in a limited edition Digipack.
Commented mainman Dries Gaerdelen: “After a lot of consideration and negotiating with many parties, I came to a conclusion that code666 is the way to go! They’ve been showing the right kind of interest in Saille and it seems that they have the same honest attitude towards music as I do.” then added: “Irreversible decay is a description of the influence of the forces of nature on earth and its inhabitants. The power of earthquakes, storms, lightning will never be controlled by mankind. These forces and the admiration for the power of destruction have found their way in the music and lyrics of Saille’s new album”
