"Soleilmoon Recordings is proud to announce Apes Of A Cold God, the debut release by Swedish folk/industrial band Lovac. Lovac is a new band with old roots, having already released a full-length CD of Death in June covers on Douglas P.'s NERUS label under the name Down in June. With a distinctive 'totenpop' vision, they re-invented the songs to the delight of both Death In June fans and music journalists who discovered the treasure of Douglas P. songs anew. Lovac's music evokes a night-of-the-world mood that deftly calls down the nostalgia of romanticism and overlays it with a war machine blowing a cold breeze of death into the dawn. Lovac is part of a larger movement of modern European pop music that draws inspiration from traditional folk music and brings it to new life in a fertile clash with the contemporary minimalistic industrial scene. Analogue synthesizers are layered over electric guitars, supplemented with a variety of acoustic instruments, including military drums and the band's ever-present Persian santoor, creating the unique music that defines Lovac. Combining this music with text fragments from Karl Marx, Antonin Artaud and Percy Bysshe Shelley, the album Apes Of A Cold God invites the listener to take a deep look into the abysmal underside of civilization. Soleilmoon's high standards in packaging are found in abundance with this CD, which is presented in a lavishly printed mini-LP style sleeve with gold foil blocking and an twelve page booklet."
