This week sees Gothminister heading out on an extensive European tour.
Gothminister was formed by Bjorn Alexander Brem in 1999. In 2000 joined the keyboardplayer Halfface, followed by the guitarplayer Machine and Dementia aka the photographer Sandra Jensen.
Gothminister released the debut album “Gothic Electronic Anthems” in 2003, receiving rave reviews in both German and international press. Gothminister have had several successful clubsingles, and one of the most successful being the floorfiller “Angel” which entered the top 10 Deutche Alternative Charts.
Gothminister has performed at such key German Festivals as WGT, Dark Storm Festival, M..Era Luna Festiva. Highlights includes performing for over 10.000 people at the Schattenreich Festival at ARENA in Oberhausen alongside such bands as Oomph! , In Extremo and Within Temptation.
Gothministers’s debut album proved to be an highly successful outing, and was re-released by Drakkar Entertainment GmbH/BMG in November 2003. Since then Gothminister has enlisted the help of two new members; keyboardist Android and livedrummer Chris Dead.
Says the band web-site on the act’s new material: “With the new album the music of Gothminister is more than ever about heavier guitars and dark metal. The electronic elements are still there, but more in the background, to make room for fantastic orchestral pompous moods. Gothminister will be touring all over Germany and the rest of Europe in order to promote the new masterpiece album; ‘Empire of Dark Salvation’.”
