The Festival Sampler was released at this year's 'Nordic Audio Modern' event, which took place back in May in Vilnius (Lithuania). The CD is in a digipak format, limited edition of 500. Total duration is 79 min., all the contributions are exclusive. Mastered by nobody less than Peter Anderson from 'raison d'être'. A Swedish-Baltic-German, i.e. ‚Nordic‘ co-production so to speak.

'Post-Industrial' would be a suitable tag.
'Deutsch Nepal' is over-represented with 3 titles, the other participants add 1 track each to the compilation. All of which are studio recordings, except the one by 'Land:Fire', which was recorded live. A exquisite selection, which focus on German ‚Dark Ambient‘ tracks by the Label 'Loki Found', that is 'Inade', 'Circular', 'Fjernlys', 'Land:Fire', 'Herbst9'. 'Ex.Order' gets a bit out of line with a tougher approach. Complemented by the already mentioned Swedish 'Deutsch Nepal' (Ritual Industrial), 'Trepaneringsritualen', 'In Slaughter Natives', as well as the 'Power Electronic' group 'Survival Unit'. To add a local colour, 2 lesser known bands from Lithuania ('Maldur Atai','Oro! Oro!') were also on the ticket. Those two lower the average quite a bit.

Particularly noteworthy is the piece 'Everlasting' by 'Fjernlys' incorporating beguiling female vocals and ethereal atmosphere, in stark contrast stands the track 'Those about to die' by 'Survival Unit', where Hell brakes loose. The collaboration between 'Deutsch Nepal' and 'Trepaneringsritualen' is convincing as well.
