Homo Sapiens 02:52
Sound dedicated to Homo Sapiens Sound dedicated to the next aliens Sound dedicated to Homo Sapiens Sound dedicated to the next aliens To those who know we don't need efficiency Those who don't believe in war exigency To those who don't take abuses of power Those who don't care about knowing the gender To those who respect all the other species Those who don't want to leave the Earth in pieces To those who don't think the world is for sale Those who can see booming system has failed Sound dedicated to Homo Sapiens Sound dedicated to the next aliens To those who know we don't need efficiency Those who don't believe in war exigency To those who don't take abuses of power Those who don't care about knowing the gender To those who respect all the other species Those who don't want to leave the Earth in pieces To those who don't think the world is for sale Those who can see booming system has failed

Dark energy -- antigravity -- Dark energy A supernova burst out of sight Now our future looks so bright We have been called out in the dark To meet the shadows in our hearts Dark energy -- antigravity -- Dark energy We're cruising towards the black hole Feeling attracted heart and soul The spaceship begins to lose control The event horizon as a boundary, it's the point of no return Is it a flight of poetry to feel so cold when we're supposed to burn ? We're all shining in the black hole Being absorbed heart and soul The past has never been so dark As if we had played a walk-on part How was it before ? We were holograms Only human scans Dark energy -- antigravity -- Dark energy - Dark...

Don't wanna drive a pink Cadillac Don't wanna be high on Prozac Don't wanna know about zodiac No. I just want to Boom Boom Dance Don't wanna talk to your intellect Don't wanna care about affect Don't wanna give a damn or introspect No, I just want to Boom Boom Dance Pains in the neck I can see all around Just when my feet start leaving the ground Troublemakers, party poopers, nothing you can do In my perfect chaos better oh without you Don't wanna be nor emblematic Don't wanna be neither plastic Don't wanna be Charismatic No, I just want to Boom Boom Dance Pains in the neck I can see all around Just when my feet start leaving the ground Troublemakers, party poopers, nothing you can do In my perfect chaos better oh without you

C'est les rats scélérats, c'est les rats scélérats, c'est encore les rats Ennemis des carnages Des humains, des félins, des canins De survivre seulement la rage Plutôt que de ronger son frein L'adaptation et l'immunisation Comme inoculées par les posions de l'Homme Qui sera l'avenir en somme ? C'est les rats scélérats, c'est les rats scélérats, c'est encore les rats Crépusculaires créatures Urbaines, hantant les endroits obscurs Depuis les déserts les plus torrides Jusqu'aux forêts tropicales humides La prolifération des générations Comme surgissant des ruines et du capharnaüm Qui sera l'avenir de l'Homme ? On en a ras le bol Nous les rats D'être symboles Du choléra De la peste Et du reste C'est les rats scélérats, c'est les rats scélérats, c'est toujours les rats

She's all dressed in black Cause there's no darker color She really got the knack One way or another Loving orchids The accursed poets And a glass of Moet... sometimes / sometimes Intersted in deviant part She finds normality boring Turns all into art Like into a drawing Loving darkness Decadent artists And a rule to transgress... sometimes / sometimes She's the Black Queen On the dance floor She's a master piece On the chess board She talks about crucifixion Bones and bodies dislocated Does it with a passion A bit sophisticated Loving pictures Very strange creatures Ultimate adventures... sometimes / sometimes She's the Black Queen On the dance floor She's a master piece On the chess board

Two witches scream and yell long to open the doors of Hell Unchain anger, revive shades, drain every river every well Let us cast some deadly spells, play magic we don't know Let us burn and trample lives and souls wherever they flow We will cut and shave and trim and dissect and divide Celebrate the art of breaking entities apart Two witches loudly breath an air that quickly starts to freeze And their breath behead the trees fries the birds and kill the bees Let us cast some deadly spells, play magic we don't know Let us burn and trample lives and souls wherever they flow We will cut and shave and trim and dissect and divide Celebrate the art of breaking entities apart Two witches fly so high that the clouds are bound to cry And their voice echoes the sound of a billion screaming gods Let us cast some deadly spells, play magic we don't know Let us burn and trample lives and souls wherever they flow We will cut and shave and trim and dissect and divide Celebrate the art of breaking entities apart

Human 03:17
I am a machine gun And I kill just for fun No need no heart or brain For spreading hate and pain Created for destruction I work in desperation The places I go by Ruins are left behind They call me human My name's an irony They call me human But I'm the god of tyranny I'm science and religion I'm master and servant I'm a sacred animal An economic miracle I have a single fear The one to disappear And as I can't be saved I'll take the world to my grave They call me human My name's an irony They call me human But I'm the god of tyranny

about

Species & Specimens is the new album of the Brussels-based electro witches duo Alk-a-line. If you haven't already been wowed by Alk-a-line, it's high time to discover them!

Laurence Castelain, on the microphone and bass, rocked for years with punk rock outfit The Chicks, heading an energetic female line-up and later also doing vocals with Flesh and Fell. Add to the mix the keyboards, voice and theremin of Sandra Hagenaar from Fifty Foot Combo and you get a sound which is at once pacey and modulated, trashy and sophisticated. They call it electro under P.P.P. influence (Pop(Post)Punk).

Their first EP has been out on the Disc-o-Bolle Label in 2009 and features four fabulous cuts and remixes by Implant, Velvet Underwear, The Young Gods and SM Xperience.

Their second LP, Cosmic Trip Comic Strip, has been released on Lynch Law Records in 2013 and can count on nice collaborations from Jean-Luc De Meyer (Front 242) and J Perry-Salkow (Flammarion, Actes Sud)

Species & Specimens is their third record. It’s 30 minutes of pounding beats, furious keyboards, bass distortion, loud voices and the strange echo of theremin. The tracklist includes novelties as Homo Sapiens, Boom Boom Dance, Dogs, Black Queen, Human and some former tracks tailored for the prestigious guests : Jacques Duvall, Peter Slabbynck (Red Zebra), Bruce Ellison (Volt Selector, PPZ 30) and Ross Demon (Length of Time). Perfect humane and artistic alchemy for a unique sound from Electro Punk to EBM.

Alk-a-line is from now on as efficient in a concert hall as a dancefloor, as recently approved by Belgium and Luxembourg audiences. The first single, Homo Sapiens, clip has been filmed at Magasin 4 in Brussels. Alk-a-line is all about an amazing live energy dose on stage!

about

Cheap Satanism Records Brussel, Belgium

Cheap Satanism Records started as a joke. This lead to more jokes. Initially the label was built around a personality and this personality’s projects. But since, it has become the base of a highly creative game, determined to rule, using force and cunning if necessary. Many things will happen under this banner – 666 projects at least! ... more
