Fire And Forget

by CYGNOSIC

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    In jewelcase with 12-panel fold-out booklet (includes lyrics of all tracks including bonus tracks), strictly limited to 150 copies. Includes 3 tracks from the "Crawl" EP not included on the original album CD release.

    It’s been just over 5 years now since the original release of CYGNOSIC’s “Fire And Forget” – an album which swiftly surged to become DWA’s biggest selling release ever.
    This was the first DWA title to comprehensively break through the four-figure barrier - by shifting over 800 units on download alone, plus hundreds more on CD - and generating over 3.5 million streams to date. In 2015 DWA put out a collector’s item 2CD reissue of this contemporary dark electro classic which subsequently sold out.

    “Fire And Forget” features the official single “Crawl”, “This Is the Night” (filmed for CYGNOSIC’s second official promo video) plus the hugely-popular Italo-disco cover “Mad Desire” which generated massive worldwide interest via YouTube after being used by Miguel Valenzuela as the soundtrack for his bodybuilding biopic of the same name about Calum von Moger (over 6.5 million views to date).

    This re-pressing of "Fire And Forget" includes as bonus tracks the 3 non-album b-sides of the “Crawl” EP (previously available only on 12” and digitally) - including “Light” which was later shot as the third CYGNOSIC promo video.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Fire And Forget via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Following the runaway success of the sophomore album “Fallen” - which already prompted both a 2CD re-issue and a re-issue of the debut “A Deity In Pain” at the tail-end of 2012 - DWA is now proud to present the third album from CYGNOSIC…in a European Edition on German partner Black Rain and a Rest Of The World version on DWA!

Made somehow in the midst of a prolific spree of remixes over the last couple of years for the likes of DIE SEKTOR, DYM, SUICIDE COMMANDO, SIN DNA, FGFC820, C-LEKKTOR, TERROLOKAUST and more, and weighing in at a formidable 14 tracks, “Fire And Forget” is easily the most accomplished and extensive CYGNOSIC album yet – filled with singer/songwriter Georg Psaroudakis’ catchiest and most accessible material to date.

Already noted as a name to watch in dark electro circles following the 2009 debut “A Deity In Pain”, CYGNOSIC’s second album “Fallen” (2011) really established this project as the front-runner of the Greek scene – attracting rave reviews internationally, coupled with stronger-than-imaginable sales.

And on “Fire And Forget”, the poppier sensibilities hinted at on cuts like the single “One Step Forward” from “Fallen” have really come fully to fruition – in the shape of songs like “Begin With Me”, the guitar-infused “This Is The Night” or title track and album-opener “Fire And Forget”.

Packed additionally with high-tempo dark-electro hits like “Crawl”, “Find You”, “Greed” and “The Darkness”, fans of CYGNOSIC’s body of work so far are sure to be more than satisfied – but where “Fire And Forget” really seems likely to take off into previously uncharted territory is among those with a preference for strong melodic synth-pop.

Including also the atmospheric “Until Glory” and “The Drowning” (graced with dulcimer), and an initially unexpected cover of the 80s Italo-disco classic “Mad Desire” by DEN HARROW which Psaroudakis makes totally his own (and which makes complete sense in the context of CYGNOSIC’s own programming style), “Fire And Forget” is an unforgettable journey into the musical mind of CYGNOSIC – a work that more than merits the accolade of “masterpiece of the genre”.

“Fire And Forget” was mixed and mastered like previous CYGNOSIC albums by the Greek scene’s most in-demand engineer and producer Dimitris N. Douvras (SIVA SIX, PREEMPTIVE STRIKE 0.1, TECHNOLORGY).

Coming in 6-panel digifile on Black Rain and in 4-panel digipak on DWA, the CD-versions of “Fire And Forget” include remixes from GRENDEL, FGFC820 and AAIMON exclusive to the DWA edition, and AMGOD, CHAINREACTOR and MAS-SI-OSARE exclusive to the Black Rain edition.

Artwork is by DWA’s acclaimed lead designer Vlad McNeally/Kallisti:Design – whose burgeoning portfolio includes countless projects for DWA, Resistanz and Kinetik festivals to name but a few.

“Fire And Forget” is released worldwide by DWA and in Europe by Black Rain on March 22nd 2013, accompanied by an extensive tour across Russia (with AKTIVEHATE) and a series of shows across Europe with C-LEKKTOR culminating in the opening slot of the UK’s premier industrial festival Resistanz.
