Description

Their first three albums took the electronic music scene by storm, but for mind.in.a.box, it all started with an unsuspecting demo they sent to Dependent Records in 2003. The five songs, submitted on a simple CD-R, captured A&R Stefan Herwig for weeks, as they had in spades what most electronic industrial artists were lacking: originality, complex sequences, hypnotic harmonies and haunting, in turn vocoded and distorted vocals. For open-minded listeners, an entirely new musical universe unfolded therein - the Dreamweb of mind.in.a.box.

"Lost Alone" (2004) found its audience fast: Its cinematic mix between fresh sounds, vocals somewhere between techno pop, trance, eighties and industrial could hardly be ignored and awarded mind.in.a.box with various "album Of the Month" titles. Thus, the brainchild of Austrian videogame addicts and composers Stefan Poiss (music) and Markus Hadwiger (lyrics) instantly created its own niche instantly.

The lush compositions were complemented by an involved sci-fi story included in the album booklet and partially narrated on the duo's website: "Dreamweb", a "Matrix"-like tale of surveillance and escape into other dimensions, began expanding beyond its first rough draft on "Lost Alone" into a universe of its own on succeeding albums "Dreamweb"(2005) and especially "Crossroads" (2007), all crowned by stunning conceptual artworks of renowned illustrator Ingo Römling.

These three masterpieces are now available for the first time on vinyl in gatefold double LP editions with the original designs, released both individually and in one package. The limited box set "The Dreamweb Trilogy" includes three large artprints with illustrations from the albums and an exclusively coloured vinyl edition with bonus tracks on two of the three records.
