Bleak Netlabel 2010
Release date: End of October 2010

“Why be Blake when you can be Bleak?” is a compilation by the Austrian netlabel Bleak, featuring not only netlabel artists, but also contributions from renowned artists from the Industrial/Experimental genres, and plain legends from the early 80’s Industrial scene.
The compilation strives to provide a “cause and effect” overview of Avantgarde art, especially from the viewpoint of Industrial/Experimental and Electronic music.
All artists have agreed to provide their tracks for free download, which is very uncommon these days, given the fact that non-mainstream artists probably suffer the most from illegal file sharing, and usually hesitate to give away albums for free.
The result is a download package in the size of a 3CD-compilation, containing early unreleased tracks as well as exclusive versions of new material.
The list of contributing artists is a mixture of Industrial dinosaurs and young or new obscure artists from all over the world.
Proving that original, or “old school” Industrial is still as influential and exciting as it has been since the very beginning in the late 70’s and early 80’s, The Bleak Compilation continues the tradition of compilations like “The Elephant Table Sampler”, “Three Minute Symphony” or “Ohrenschrauben/Ohrensausen”, presenting a mixture of difficult, at times disturbing and confusing music, totally apart from any mainstream intentions.
