New interviews in Elektrauma and Aurora Borealis zines

We have 2 new interviews for you!

The first is from Aurora Borealis zine.  This is actually the same interview that was translated to German and published in the October 2011 issue of Zillo Magazine.  The original English text has been re-published at Aurora Borealis and you can read the entire thing (and see some new photos) here.

The second is an entirely new and original interview we did for Elektrauma zine.  You can read the entire thing here.  Due to some strange formatting the interview may be a little difficult to read.  For that reason you can also read the Elektrauma interview below the jump:

Coma Music and Reflections of Darkness review "This World Erase"

We have received a couple more great reviews of our new album, which is now shipping from the following distributers:
From Coma Music Magazine (coma-online.com):
Shiv-R’s This World Erase is a release that should be on the playlist of any fan of harder electro/industrial. It is a top-notch recording that is sure to satisfy your inner (and outer) demons!
Read the full review here.
From Reflections of Darkness (reflectionsofdarkness.com):
Shiv-r brought fashion and beauty on industrial scene.  Imagine a shining porcelain statuette which falls down on a glass floor, but instead of crystal ringing you hear a grinding sound and noise. And so you woke up from your nice dream and it’s time for reality, which will make you shiver. This album is a daisy, which sprouts right through a slab of concrete.

Blackvector and Viva Music review "This World Erase"

The first reviews are in for our new album and they are looking great so far!  And also worth mentioning - we debuted at #2 in the Metropolis Top Sellers charts, and #4 in the Music Non Stop Sales Charts.
The album is out now and shipping across the world, available from:
From Blackvector (blackvector.se):
"With 'This World Erase' the band have put more work into their sound, giving it a more mature, darker and worked through approach; it feels like the band have put more emotions into the sound; something the title track show pretty well with its mellow and gloomy sound and sad story. 9/10"
Read the full review here
From Viva Music (darkwave.ro):
"Shiv-r’s music seems to know where it stands and to speak from the stance of a band who have gained their balance in just a few blows, but this is not to say that the weft of hard work is not visible in the album, not at all. An album to keep your eyes and ears open for in October, Shiv-r’s “This World Erase” will tell you a lot about yourself."
