Final cov­er art­work of "Apop We Love You", a trib­ute to Apoptygma Berzerk

Pleased to meet you we came to drop bombs on you

Apoptygma Berzerk had and still has a huge influ­ence on the music scene – now it's about time to pay trib­ute. Stephan Groth and his band mates have been provid­ing us for over 25 years now with great music and awe­some gigs. Apop (how fans call the band) is among the most import­ant bands who essen­tially shaped the genre Futurepop. Be pre­pared for this monu­ment­al, and breath­tak­ing trib­ute album. Let's wel­come to earth: "Apop We Love You – A Tribute To Apoptygma Berzerk".

The 'who is who' of the electronic black scene joins in on this tribute

A bunch of well-known musi­cians and bands appear on this trib­ute album: Machinista, Vogon Poetry, Twisted Destiny, IIOIOIOIITechnomancer Feat. Angst Pop, and many more. By the way: Angst Pop is Per Aksel Lundgreen who is a former mem­ber of Apoptygma Berzerk.

Each and every musi­cian put a lot of heart-blood and pas­sion into their Apop cov­er ver­sions. Although this is an inter­na­tion­al pro­ject, it may occur to the read­er that the Scandinavian musi­cians build quite a strong part in it.

Electrozombies is proud to present the very first official tribute

We're over­whelmed by all sub­mis­sions. Each song really has a unique, new style, and the level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism is very high indeed. We would nev­er have expec­ted that this pro­ject may become so huge. But the most import­ant thing for us is the feed­back from the fans them­selves;  we hope you will enjoy a whole new approach to all our beloved Apop-Songs and find a couple of new bands on this trib­ute which are surely worth a second glance.

We and all the par­ti­cip­at­ing musi­cians have spent almost 4 months of hard work on this album. Please sup­port this trib­ute by buy­ing it legally.

To give you a first impres­sion of the upcom­ing trib­ute we will release a digit­al single on July 1st: Mourn by Vogon Poetry. And although they are Vogons, their ver­sion of Mourn def­in­itely won´t work as a tor­tur­ing instru­ment! On the right hand side you´ll find the art­work for the single release which is also an allu­sion to the ori­gin­al art­work, and it is full of hid­den ele­ments that Apop fans surely will appreciate.
