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. You can check all par­ti­cipants in detail on the col­lab­or­a­tion page. 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," Tom says. "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."
