Album Review

The project X-IN JUNE was founded in 2011 by Markus Bär. Before he brought X-IN JUNE into being, Markus already had another project, COY IMPACT, since 1998 and released some albums until he gave it up in 2007. In 2008 he started to work with LOST AREA as singer, songwriter and partly as guitar player and produced with them the albums ‘Man Machine’ and ‘Memoria’. With LOST AREA he did several supporting acts for bands like: PROJECT PITCHFORK, HUMAN LEAGUE, DIARY OF DREAMS, FUNKER VOGT, KIRLIAN CAMERA, STAUBKIND and they were on tour with PROJECT PITCHFORK. But now with X-IN JUNE he decided to go consequently his own musical way. In 2012, X-IN JUNE was runner-up at the “Battle of the bands” contest of the Sonic Seducer magazine. Since September 2011 Christian Beer joined the band for live performances, as well as professional cameraman for video production and editing. Borislav Schultheiss is yet another band member since this year.

Now here is the successor of the debut album ‘Hall of Truth’. Once again, X-IN JUNE created a concept album. This time it is about religion, situations, results as well as rituals and consequences of believes. Not a special religion is described in the lyrics but what it generated and still does. Surely no easy topic to deal with, but X-IN JUNE has a feeling to wrap the lyrics in haunting and danceable music which gives the whole a certain lightness. Markus Bär varies his singing from song to song, changing from a deep voice to a higher one that reminds you of Brian Molko (PLACEBO). And indeed at ‘Heaven on Earth’ you could think it is a PLACEBO song if there weren’t the drums and the guitars missing. You will also have the feeling that APOPTYGMA BERZERK inspired the band as well. I already liked the debut album very much and the second one is also very enjoyable if you like Synth Pop/ Electro music that has great potential on the dance-floors.

My favourite songs so far, although I do like the complete album: ‘Dream catcher’, ‘Desert planet’ and ‘Summers end’ though they are very PLACEBO-like but I love PLACEBO so it’s not bad after all. The album is available as standard version, download version but you can also only download each song of this album.
