Chronicles on Spotify

DSC-chronicles_page1

The new album “Chronicles is now available on Spotify, have a listen!

And yes, it is one track missing, the new song “Starvation”, available on the actual CD.

Dark Side Cowboy release 20year-album!

DSC-chronicles_page1

Yes it’s true. To celebrate the 20 year anniversary Dark Side Cowboys will release a new studio album just in time for Christmas! The 14-track new album is entitled “Chronicles” and contains brand new re-recordings of 13 classic DSC-songs, from “Pure Hearts EP” (1995) up to “Believe” (2001) and on top of that 1 new song called “Starvation”.

The album will be released in a limited edition of 500 copies and sold only at gigs and limited chosen distributors. But of course all you fans of digital distribution should not worry, “Chronicles” will be released on Spotify etc as well, but with the exception that the new song “Starvation” will not be included in the digital release. The album is released on the classic Moriensis Productions and in cooperation with Nangijala Records.

On “Chronicles” Dark Side Cowboys have chosen 13 songs that have been rearranged much due to the return of Vigilante who has been gathering knowledge from his years riding with the Morlocks, the new talents of Vagrant Bob and the return of Atreyo who’s classic bass lines from the early Cowboy years still shine through in the production. The result is an album that brings classic songs to new dimensions, with technology that holds less limit than the times when the original DSC-albums were recorded on analogue tapes.

So what about the new stuff then? Rumours have been that the Cowboys have been working on new songs, like “Silent War”, performed live the past years. The answer to that question we refere to the future. Yes it is true. A brand newly written studio album will probably emerge in a not too distant future, but for now, DSC celebrate 20 years as a band, and still there are some months before the actual anniversary ends and Cowboys turn 21.

Stay tuned for more info on “Chronicles” and the future.

The year 2000 and the new millennia kicked off with the release of the DSC-single “New Religion”, a song that quickly climbed the alternative charts in Scandinavia and got a no1 placement in Finland. Now, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dark Side Cowboys, this popular single has been re-released (remastered) on Spotify.

Disclosure re-released

The Apocryphal 2000 rerelease

For all of you who missed the free download release of The Apocryphal last year at Echolize you can now find the album on Youtube.

The Apocryphal 2000 was originally recorded 1999-2000 and was aimed for release at the new milennia but as the record industry back then turned there were no labels with the right distribution deals or power to afford the release. We had a very good collaboration with Nangijala Records, and still do, so that is not the reason, rather just that in retrospect we didn’t find the suitable ways of making the rerecorded debut album reach a new audience.

Why was it recorded you may wonder? We felt that many of the songs had grown during the years and some transformed into new interesting versions, versions that might not top the originals but add something to them, a new dimension so to say. We also felt that since some songs didn’t make the cut in 1995 (like “Pride”) the new version definitely did. Also the song “Dust” was replaced with a new song, entitled “Dust II” that takes on where the song “Dust” ended, continuing the story.

The album was recorded on an ADAT system during quite limited studio conditions so we didn’t do many retakes, simply leaving the raw feeling to it and we have kept it so, giving you here the original recordings from that period. Enjoy.

Released in cooperation with Nangijala Records

We have chosen to include some of the tracks that have not been released on CD among with old versions of songs that later on have appeared re-recorded on CD.

Pearls For The Swine

Description


Pearls For The Swine is the last demotape from Dark Side Cowboys. Shortly after the release in 1995 the first CD Pure Hearts EP was released. Pearls was only available to members of Morinsis Productions and subscribers of Wanted Magazine, so back then many fans didn’t even know it existed. On this recording the Cowboys prepared themselves for the forthcoming CD’s and many future CD-tracks can be find here in early demoversions.

Shots & Cuts

Description


Shots & Cuts give the listener a summary of what the Cowboys were up to on stage during 1993-94. Included are live-tracks from various performances, from the worst ones that never should have been done in the first place, to some better ones. Found within are exclusive tracks and versions that practically never can be done again… This is the fifth and final part in the Ars Moriensis story, the epilogue that ends with a lot of questions, perhaps never to be answered.

Demon

Description


Demon is the fourth part in the Ars Moriensis epos, and probably the most deadly part too… Designed as a comedy this piece of music will thrill the listener and send shivers down your spines. One can hear a mixture of sanity and insanity, good and bad, light and darkness, and there is no way out. The demotape is somewhat equal to Rare & Obscure and it was only made in 25 copies (guess if they sold out…). On this demo one can find early demoversions among with exclusive tracks and covers. DSC fear no limits.

The Hall Of Pain

Description


The Ars Moriensis was the start of the Dark Side Cowboys’ epos with the same name, devided into five parts, and here we have reached part III – The Hall of Pain. This demo was, like Ars Moriensis, made in 100 numbered copies plus another 100 promocopies. This is the recording that brought DSC outside the borders of their homecountry and musically one can follow the development.

On this album size one can follow the Cowboys in the battle between the good and the bad side… in the Hall of Pain.

Rare & Obscure

Description


Ars Moriensis II – Rare & Obscure is the name of the second demotape from DSC. Limited to 25 numbered copies it sold out quickly and lucky owners af an original can now become rich, erhm… On this tape DSC are even more experimental than on Ars Moriensis and among the many obscure songs one can find special versions of Deep, Bloodred Moon and Red Day, unique tracks like Nerves Don’t Regain and covers of among others David Bowie.
