"One Last Kiss Ep"

This album brings back the very best of mid '90s industrial rock while still attaining a great level of ingenuity.
Sin Division's debut album, One Last Kiss gives the listener the rough and edgy industrial sound of the mid '90s without sounding much like stale rehashes of the popish attempts to revive the movement that are so common. Sin Division's tracks, while being composed and performed in studio by one person (Sin), the tracks maintain a high level of diversity. Opening with "Duck Duck Goose," the album shows a level of sampling and mixing mastery not held by most artists and drives a slow groove pounding beat laced with Stabbing Westward-ish vocals down your throat. The first track contains a great amount of emotionally driven lyrics that set the tone for the entire album, which maintains its slow and hard driving pace as it transitions into the second track, "H.U.I. (Human User Interface)." This track takes on a more Machines of Loving Grace feel, reminiscent of "Golgotha Tenement Blues" from the '97 release of The Crow soundtrack. Track three, "Strange" keeps the same tempo for the most part, but adds more diverse beats and demonstrates more of the production ingenuity so well displayed by the first track. "UNTITLED" jumps up the pace and pushes Sin's vocals into an entirely new direction. The song reeks of the influence of KMFDM and Combichrist, a huge turn from "One Last Kiss," which is more of a slow, dark rock semi-ballad that maintains the driving beats of the previous tracks at a slower pace. The album closes with "Morphing," which is almost like a summary of the entire album ranging from slow beats and subtle lyrics to hard thrashing guitar riffs and screaming vocals. This track is all around danceable, as is almost the entire album. Overall, the album is a near perfect revival of what industrial rock should be. - Regen Magazine

TRENTON, N.J. – After a successful debut in 2005, Gothicfest will return to Chicago this October 12 and 13 at the Excalibur with another outstanding lineup of music and grand expo featuring everything significant to the gothic subculture.

“Excalibur is the ideal setting for a gothic festival and expo,” said Jeffrey Swanson, promoter for Gothicfest. “We are bringing in DJs, a suspension act and a multimedia projection show featuring highlights from many of the greatest gothic and horror films ever made.”

This year’s musical lineup will feature 30 bands, including Bella Morte, Attrition, Red Flag, Piviot Man, Grigori 3, Regenerator, Ghost Orgy, Element a440, Deepest Symphony, The Vivid Twisted, Sin Division, Volkmar, 13 Winters, and many more on two alternating stages of continuous music.

Los Angeles’ DJ Absynthesis, hailed by the Austin Chronicle as, "a driving force..." and up for awards including "Best DJ", "Best Electronica", and "Keyboardist of the Year" in Houston, will be the featured DJ on Saturday night. Music appearing alongside Aphex Twin, Skinny Puppy, Covenant, and The Chemical Brothers on "Project Gotham Racing III" for Xbox360 have put this emerging producer-artist on a fast track to global respect and recognition.

Also appearing will be DJ Genesis, a Hollywood-based transplant from Houston , creates and implements audio for one of the world’s largest game publishers, Midway Games, as Project Audio Director. He’s a founding member of up-and-coming electronica act Phase Theory, working alongside producer/singer/composer Kirk Grahman and composer/songwriter Jonathan Kramm. During his years in Houston , he was not only resident DJ at Club 1415, but also became part of the management team and helped turn the club from five-star restaurant to one of Houston ’s most popular nighttime attractions. He has shared decks with such DJs such as DJ Keoki of Club Party Monster fame, DJ Skot formerly of Haujobb, Absynthesis, Colonel Clique, Breye7x of Provision, and DJ Tommy Sunshine, and worked with such notable groups as The Azoic, Provision, Vertigo Blue, Luna Tex, Brio Kids, Asmodeus X, System Syn, Imperative Reaction, and many more.

In addition to music, North America 's largest gothic festival and expo is the official expo for the gothic subculture, featuring tattoos, extreme exhibits, clothing, fashion, body art, and accessories.

313 Suspension Team, a suspension team based out of Chicago, also with chapters in Madison, Wis., and Tuscon, Ariz., will perform at Gothicfest with Ammunition, a 313 Suspension Team Performance Artist/Spokesmodel/Muse/Art Model/Fetish Model/Pain Slut/Nihilist. Founded in Madison in 2002 by Steve Bennett (head of Chicago Chapter and 313 USA) and John Kid (head of Madison Chapter), the team is a collective of piercers, performance artist, riggers, and individuals with a shared interest in suspension.

Numerous exhibitors will be on hand, including Graveyard Theatre, which has been bringing horror movies to television sets since 1997. Graveyard Theatre will hold its 10-year anniversary party at Gothicfest 2007. Cast and crew will be on hand, and throughout the Gothicfest weekend the group will host famous horror movie celebrities and more.

The Excalibur in downtown Chicago is a castle-like building designed by Henry Ives Cobb and built in 1892. The massive multi-room, nine-level maze can be a bit intimidating at first. With its gothic overtones, dark winding corridors and spiral staircases, it should come as no surprise that the space was once a downtown church. According to rumors, the building was also used to house corpses from a shipwreck before it was turned into the Limelight Nightclub by Peter Gatien in 1985. It is also rumored that the building was a place of Satanic rituals.

Tickets are $32.50 per day and $55.00 for a weekend pass. Tickets will be available at and at all Ticket Master outlets. Due to adult themes, this will be a 21 and over event.

What the press said about Gothicfest 2005:

“It’s been a good day for the Goths” - Spin

“This would-be Warped for the Goth scene will bring an army in black” - Chicago Sun Times

One Last Kiss/ EP 2006



Sin Division is currently calling L.A. (California) and Orlando (Florida) their home. Sin, (the lead singer/creator) writes, performs, and records, all of the Sin Division, material. He is influenced by a wide range of sounds, emotions, and images... From the pulse of a dying dream... To clips of war, hatred, religion, and violence; reflected and force fed to us through the eyes of innocent TV's... There is no other choice but to become what surrounds me, us ... you... Sin Division is influenced by: Emotion and experiences... Religion, death, excess, life, society, media, lonelyness, regret, love, hatred, lust, sex, drugs, conformity, war, greed, famine, and etc... [Our] Society; As American People; We are being slaughtered and tortured through by the same government, media, and laws, that all of us/we, have been raised and taught to uphold, respect, and trust... Sin Division is usually classified as: Industrial rock, metal, hard rock, industrial metal, electronic rock, experimental, experimental rock, alternative pop industrial, (like NIN or Marilyn Manson) and/or pop rock. Though we like to be considered as something new... Please make no mistake, Sin Division, sound's like no other band, group, D.J., and/or act, out there. The Sin Division sound is pretty raw in comparison to most metal, alternative, industrial, and or rock bands, out there. Sin Division is not nearly as polished or as processed as most radio friendly pop, pop rock, pop alternative, and or pop metal bands/groups out there, we are still part of the underground... Usually people think of what they do as a fusion between different musical era's, genres, and styles. All of which are being blended together, to make something real, something true, but most important, something new...
