The dark wave record label, Alfa Matrix, has released it’s third Depeche Mode covers album, ten years after their first edition.
Below is the Alfa Matrix description of this album
It was back in 2009 when some Alfa Matrix artists came up with the crazy challenge of paying a collective homage to the unique and mighty DEPECHE MODE. That very band that has been a reference and influence for many of us, let it be for their matchless synth melodies, their carrying song arrangements, their inspiring lyrics or yet their so poignant dark touch.
10 years later, here we are doing it again and release the 3rd volume in the “Alfa Matrix re:covered – a tribute to DEPECHE MODE” series with 32 brand new cover versions reinterpreted by Alfa Matrix artists.
With a good combination of unavoidable classic hits and other darker and more obscure songs from DEPECHE MODE’s immense music repertoire, this compilation of cover songs nicely flows in your ears across the rich sonic diversity of Alfa Matrix’s roster of artists. From electro pop to dark elektro, from pop wave to goth metal, from industrial to techno pop, this 32-track compilation is guided by each band’s profound intention to appropriate the song they chose at best and give it an all new perspective.
