Ultra > Angel (A Tribute To Depeche Mode)

Devotees: Pay attention!

Electrozombies is proud to present the first part of the pos­sible best Depeche Mode trib­ute com­pil­a­tion ever made. 'Ultra > Angel' is the name and also indic­ates the con­tent. Because this trib­ute con­tains songs from the long-play­ers 'Ultra' (1997), 'The Singles 86>98' (1998), 'Exciter' (2001), 'Playing The Angel' (2005) and 'The Best Of (Volume 1)' (2006).

The most unique tribute

The concept behind this com­pil­a­tion was to make a trib­ute album that is out­stand­ing on the world of the sheer end­less Depeche Mode trib­utes. Of course we also love the old clas­sics, but we wanted to have a more unique trib­ute com­pil­a­tion. We're tired of listen­ing to the ten thou­sandth cov­er ver­sion of 'Enjoy The Silence' or 'Never Let Me Down Again'. There's noth­ing new you can expect.

That's why we decided to choose selec­ted songs from the era without Alan Wilder in the band lineup. We think every single album from Depeche Mode is abso­lutely bril­liant. Here we want to present the 'less pop­u­lar' cov­er songs from devotees with pas­sion to you.

What can you expect?

As I already men­tioned all tracks are simply breath­tak­ing good. Here I want to focus to some really new inter­preted cov­er ver­sions. You know the heart-melt­ing bal­lad 'Shine' from the 'Exciter'? My good friend John von Ahlen of 'Parralox' made a super fant­ast­ic uptempo disco track out of it. A bril­liant twist!

'Junksista' do it the oppos­ite way. They cre­ated an emo­tion­al and dreamy bal­lad from the dance floor clas­sic 'Martyr'. The French Electropop band 'Celluloide' comes with anoth­er great idea around the corner. They present their ver­sion of 'Precious' in a quiet unex­pec­ted way by switch­ing the lyr­ics into french.

Did you ever ask your­self how would the song 'Lilian' sound if it was a Futurepop track? Well, here you have the chance to listen to the great ver­sion from the Greek Futurepop band 'Technolorgy'. These are just some examples of the wide vari­ety of this tribute.

But waaiittt, there's more!

We had so much mar­velous cov­er entries that we had to split up the first concept of the trib­ute com­pil­a­tion. Overall we had 26 (!) awe­some songs. That was too much for just one trib­ute. The res­ult would be that one artist would steal the show of the oth­er one. And maybe some good songs would drown in mass.

A second part with 14 tracks from the era 2009 – 2017 will fol­low soon. Be pre­pared for anoth­er phe­nom­en­al Depeche Mode trib­ute com­pil­a­tion. Keep an eye on Electrozombies. This is a good time to sub­scribe to our news­let­ter (See foot­er sec­tion at the bot­tom of the page) to be informed as soon as possible.

  1. Hi, why isn't the Amazon link work­ing? Will this be avail­able on Bandcamp as i would prefer to have it as a FLAC download

    Many thank


    1. Hi Craig, Thank you for your request. I have already con­tac­ted our dis­trib­ut­or to check why the release is still not lis­ted on Amazon. Hopefully this will be fixed in the next days.
      Unfortunately we can't release 'Ultra > Angel' on Bandcamp due to the license fees we have to pay. For this reas­on we will check again if a release on Tidal will be possible.

  2. Hi, Can you please tell me if there is any chance of you releas­ing the "PET SHOP BOYS" and "DEPECHE MODE" – "TRIBUTE ALBUMS" on "CD" as i dont down­load. Thank you. Regards. Denver.
