A good two years have passed since their latest album "Frontiers", but at last the long wait is over and
expectations are high for the project?s third studio album, considering that its predecessor took the
dancefloors of the global club scene by storm and stood its ground among the top positions of the
German Alternative Charts for full eight weeks!
"Reasons to kill" consists of 11 tracks featuring a wide range of electro music with driving beats and
those unmistakable melodies that SOLAR FAKE specialise in, sounding danceable and haunting
without being blunt. Remaining true to their chosen path, the duo from Berlin neither repeat themselves
nor become unfaithful to their own sound. Diversity has been a central theme ever since SOLAR FAKE
first arrived on the scene, so it?s not surprising that "Reasons to kill" features trance influences alongside
dub step, industrial and EBM elements without falling prey to clichés. Songs such as "My Spaces" and
"Face me" blend aggression and beauty as if it was the most normal thing in the world. Tracks like "I'd
rather break" and "I hate you more than my life" turn into floorfillers in no time, just like the ingenious
"Reset to default", which is already available as a free download and is well-known not only to SOLAR
FAKE fans. Naturally, the album also features highly distorted sounds in the two violent industrial hits "My
bleeding heart" and "When I bite". By contrast, "Reasons to kill" also includes two somewhat melancholy
numbers: "Rise and fall" and the closing song "The pages", which develops from a noisy piano ballad into
a danceable electro wave track.
A cover version seems to have become an essential element of every SOLAR FAKE album, and the new
album is no exception: this time they?ve given "One Step Closer" (originally by Linkin Park) the SOLAR
FAKE treatment. Who would have thought that so much pressure could be produced without guitars?
Sven explains: "I tried a number of different synthesizers to get a sound that does justice to this song. In
the end I simply played everything through the guitar amps and recorded the result."

Again Sven Friedrich?s incomparable voice succeeds in stirring all kinds of different emotions in his audience,
from goosepimples to aggression. After the release of this album at the very latest, the charismatic vocalist
will no longer be pigeonholed with his 'rock bands' Zeraphine and Dreadful Shadows since he has firmly
established himself as an indispensable part of the electro scene.
