Funker Vogt goes PC GAMES
Funker Vogt's sixth and current studio album "Navigator" makes now - without knowing once - the headstone for the co-operation with the publisher of computer- and videogames TGC (The Games Company) and their current Game "World War I - Tench Warefare In Europe". In addition a statement of Funker Vogt: The game-forger contacted us quiet rapid and asked, if we'd been interested in a collaboration to this new game. After making the contact had to be considered what this collaboration should look like. Then we had the idea to attach a complete Single-CD to this game. The Track "Killing Ground" of our current album "Navigator" has always been a nominee for a second single, and as it fits to the theme of the game, it was a decided concern. As bonus, we took an earlier version of a new track, which will be on the next Funker Vogt album. Thus we also gave a view to the comming album, which shall be released in the first half of 2007.
But the single "Killing Ground" is exclusive of the game.

"Killing Ground" descends in it's primal version of the sixth album "Navigator". To shorten the time of waiting on the new - still untitled - album, Funker Vogt enrich the limited Grabenkrieg single-CD with the song "Paralyzed", an exclusive fulltime advanced version.

"Funker Vogt brought the perfect soundtrack for World War I", Carsten Strehse inspired, CEO of TGC (The Games Company). "The band criticly deals up with the theme war and construes history in their music unbelievable strong."

Middle-term the parts console and online will get a higher denotation; The publisher lays his main focus on adventures and rolegames, strategy and simulation.
To Funker Vogt:
The band was found in 1995 and comes from the north saxon city Hameln. The actual "Funker Vogt" (engl. radio operator Vogt) is a friend, who's really been radio operator in the German Federal Armed Forces at that time. This name became trend-setting for the bands concept: Military - War. Within a short time Funker Vogt reached the top of the german as well as international electro-scene, and ever since they defended this top in the following years. The phenomenon Funker Vogt is not limited to germany, meanwhile Funker Vogt world-wide became the epitome for hard electronic music. As central topic war and social unfainess came forth out crystallized over the years in their releases, whereby the band deals up with this very critically
Funker Vogt: Fallen Hero
(out in Europe on the 25.07.05, followed by the album "Navigator" on the 4th of September)
After three years of silence, Funker Vogt return with their new single "Fallen Hero". With this track, Funker Vogt continue the story of the "Tragic Hero. One hears all the news from our hero, what happened so far and what is going on right now. And just like the Fallen Hero, the band returns after a long time of silence to be actively involved again in our music scene.
From the musical point of view, Funkr Vogt evolved further with this release. Here they demonstrates all their critics that they can do much more then just distorted vocals and 4/4 beats. Especially the vocals are used on this song quite variable summed up by a catchy tunes and bombastic drums.
This Time the band chose two from last years successful newcomers, Underwater Pilots and The Birthday Massacre, for remixes. This MCD will be completed by two non-album tracks. So this single stands on its own and not only one song of the forthcoming album "Navigator".
