Since the surprisingly successful "Presence" in 2015 (which even spawned a minor underground hit with the single "Black") only one album has left the Twice a Man assembly line: the ambient "Cocoon" from 2019, which was released as a digital album, a 59 minute long music video and a limited edition CD. Another "pop"-album was however inevitable. Mirroring the production process of "Presence", but with a twist that puts the emphasis on slightly more organic arrangements. The established wall of sound, the expressive vocals and the analog synthesizers are still prominent, but they're backed up by heavier percussion, more distortion and lyrical themes that are a lot more ambiguous this time around. The bulk of "On the other side of the mirror" consists of a brutal and hard-hitting trio of songs, "Breath", "Rain of Shame" and the first single "Modern World". With the addition of the psychedelic "Growing", the border-line EBM of "Naked", and the quite extraordinary "Fireflies", the end-result is a versatile and very strong album

Limited double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release from the Swedish electronic act. After releasing Icicles in 2010, Twice a Man made the transition back into theater and fine arts related environments. In 2012 the limited numbered Costume Area was released - a 49 minute 47 second ambient track, based on music composed for an exhibition at the Stockholm Dance Museum. Far from a commercial product, the CDs sold out in way less than 49 minutes and 47 seconds and a second edition had to be printed. In 2014, the band celebrated the 30th anniversary of the album From a Northern Shore. By bringing back Jocke Söderqvist on stage they ensured the anniversary gigs were very memorable for the fans. The gigs were also memorable for the band, as the creative chemistry in the reunited trio was still present. Almost inevitably the gentlemen ended up writing new songs together, for the first time since the mid-`80s.

MP3 Album: $7.99 Download

2018 release. In 1997 Singer, songwriter Steve Newman formed the band Newman and since 1998 have been producing consistently high quality albums filled with hook laden songs and thought provoking lyrics. The now, hard to find self-titled album was followed up in 1999 by the awesome One Step Closer album. Continuing the high standard came Dance In The Fire and then Sign Of The Modern Times in 2000, and 2003 respectfully. Fans and critics alike began to realize they were dealing with an artist that would evolve and mature with them. The year 2006 saw the release of Heaven Knows, and once again proved beyond all doubt that Newman were becoming one of the top purveyors of melodic rock in the UK. Any doubts about the quality or consistency were cast aside when in 2007 Primitive Soul was released to great acclaim. This was followed in 2008 by Decade, a double album celebrating 10 years of Newman. However, not wanting to take the usual route of a hits album this was packaged with a second CD containing another 14 unreleased songs which ended up being so well received it was reviewed as a new studio album. Decade may have been a great way for a band to sign off and call it a day, however, not only was this not even considered, the focus went into producing the next stage of the bands career.

2021 release. Hidden between the sacred and the damned, an essence both fierce and fair in it's duality. It's in this essence the subjective concept of good and evil can be exposed and revealed. Only by colliding harmony with dissonance can we create the necessary depth in our art, and therefore, our way of life. Monotheistic Enslavement doesn't stand by itself as a conceptual album but should rather be considered as a result of our evolvement. A step further from Godhead's light and therefore a step closer to the liberation that lies beyond the illuminated path. The creative forces within the band have increased during these times of global pandemic. Blessed by the curse has the sun fallen into eclipse and ones again revealed it's true self. Newly acquired revelations during this period is Monotheistic Enslavement.
