In 1975, Dario Argento launched his seminal horror classic, “Profondo Rosso”, or in English, “Deep Red”. This movie would influence a whole generation of teens, growing up in the late 70’s and early 80’s both when it came to film and music. The brutal horror of Dario Argento and the dark electro-prog of Goblin was indeed a perfect match.
In 1994, Apoptygma Berzerk released the CD-Single “Deep Red” to great critical acclaim, and the track is still a fan-favorite, both on record, and in live-settings, where the song still is performed on almost every gig. “Deep Red” was also the first official music video that Apoptygma Berzerk ever made. In 1996 “Deep Red” was also included on the studio-album “7”, and it was featured on countless compilations across the world.
In 2019, following up on the “Soli Deo Gloria” 25th. Anniversary from 2018, the band is pulling off another 25th Anniversary, this time with the split-7” of “Deep Red” made in collaboration with English analogue fetishists, Vile Electrodes. The duo, consisting of Jane Caley and Martin Swan, also made a track called “Deep Red”
back in 2013, for their debut album, “The Future through A Lens”, and they also accompanied it with a video and the track was also included in UNDO’s amazing ‘The Electricity Club’ double compilation (bestselling electro compilation 2018 for Audioglobe!).
So, in the planning of the German tour dates for Apoptygma Berzerk that are coming up in mid-August, Vile Electrodes were invited to join as special guests there, and also at the gig in Oslo.
Then the idea came up that Vile Electrodes should do a remix of Apoptygma Berzerk’s “Deep Red”, and that Apoptygma Berzerk should do a remix of Vile Electrodes’ “Deep Red”, and issue this as a split 7” vinyl!
Both bands went to work and delivered amazing versions of the songs of their counterparts, and in August 2019, this very special 7”, limited to 400 copies in transparent vinyl, will be released the week after the German tour-dates.
