nEGAPADRES.3.3. to appear on Ironflame compilation

S3 was contacted by Stefan Schwanke, co-owner of the Berlin-based label Ironflame, who asked if nEGAPADRES.3.3. could collaborate to a forthcoming compilation of industrial music called Statement 1961. Flattered, and also because Stefan Schwanke was a very old and dear friend, we accepted. We sent to Stefan a cd with the three parts of “qontain air” but he didn’t like it very much. Then we remixed one part and released “qontain air nr2 DOAM”, but at the same time, we mixed a new song entitled “Transe Ov Exstrophy”, which turned out to be the best work we had done so far since the reunion, and we sent Stefan a cd with the new remix “qontain air nr2 DOAM” and this new song “Transe Ov Exstrophy”. This time, Stefan liked it.

Before it was due to be released, the compilation was sent to the industrial magazine Spectrum, in which it got an excellent review and where the track from nEGAPADRES.3.3. was highly praised. In his review, Richard Stenson, editor of Spectrum magazine, said “With the final track for Side B, nEGAPADRES.3.3. showcases an amazing ritual industrial piece ‘Transe of Exstropy’.  Using looped, shifting/ sweeping tones that ebb and flow throughout, it creates a knife’s edge intensity that acts as a backdrop for a sampled male voice discussing male genital modification.”
