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.

The final piece of Die Sektor's The Void Trilogy, pronounced mathematically as, negative by existence," the album is by far their strongest, and most mature output to date. Uneclipsed by their enigmatic live shows, Die Sektor is your final electro solution. flowinglower

Even though my tastes are generally dark, hard & fast--I find myself enjoying Cyferdyne's sophomore album way more than the debut. Cables & Codes, Glass, Visions, Numb (Aesthetic Perfection Remix), FTW! flowinglower
