File Under: Apoptygma Berzerk, Electronic, Pop, Dark Wave
Apoptygma Berzerk (in short APOP) reinvents itself - again - with an exciting new sound; different from, but complimentary to, the electro rock future pop stylings of previous releases! ‘Exit…’ is their first studio album since "Rocket Science" (2009). Apoptygma Berzerk created a concept album that deliberatley distances itself from consuming single tracks and aiming for "reach", and is therefore released physically ONLY. On "Exit Popularity Contest", APOP founder Stephan Groth distils the essence of carefully selected pioneers to construct a classic yet refreshingly contemporary sound, bringing in- strumental music back into the spotlight for a new generation as well as older aficionados. '"It's Apoptygma Berzerk - but not as we know it."
