Agressiva 69's first album Deus Ex Machina celebrate 25 years!
Agressiva 69 is one of the first representatives of industrial rock and slowly turns to celebrate 30 years of existence jubilee. The band's history began in indecisive times of the 80s and 90s. The founders of A69 are Tomek Grochola and Jacek Tokarczyk, later accompanied by Robert Tuta. The new drummer is Filip Mozul. Agressiva 69 represents the full of energy, rock, or even rock'n'roll attitude towards industrial music with electronics. The attitude is similar to the one represented by KMFDM, Young Gods, Ministry, or Revolting Cocks. Agressiva 69's actions intertwine with the pioneer times of the scene and show business in post-communist Poland.
The band's changing fortunes can in no way be described constructively, however, it is worth to mention the role Agressiva has played for the popularization of industrial among communities, who are far away from experimental music. Further history of A69 is highs and low. Triumphant concerts, unusual activity, next projects, and moments which the band has fortunately overcome. A69's work evolved in different directions. A group of friends have always presented themselves as super band lives. They were a cult band among Depeche Mode fans in Poland, although their musical style is very distant from sounds made by the golden boys from Basildon. A69's orthodox fans value their breakthrough albums Deus Ex Machina (1993) and Hammer By The Gods (1994) the most.
The A69's first album Deus Ex Machina celebrates 25 years. Therefore Requiem Records label releases the vinyl edition of the album on the 30th of January in 2019. Also, the album is going to be available on CD including bonus tracks.
Next, to the vinyl, our label is going to digitally release A69's EP entitled Agressiva 2069 including two covers of the track A2069 and two remixes produced by Kings in White. Soon more information about the forthcoming EP. Stay tuned!
