Talking about legendary bands and figures of the gothscene German dark pop-band Blutengel and singer Chris Pohl would likely be among the first to come to mind. Delivering deep, gothic tunes considering vampiremythology and death Blutengel has been on both our to-do and the audiences wish-list for years. We just never had a BOOM massive enough for their liveshow until now!! So Finally; Blutengel IS coming to play their first liveshow in Finland ever at Hellsinki Industrial Festival 2019!!
Another top act of the scene, Daniel Graves´s Aesthetic perfection was formed in the year every computer on earth was supposed to go awahl, 2k. That didn´t quite happen but there is certainly something deeply destructive on the beats of this Californian monster with a misleading, almost shallow name., Throughout their career Aesthetic Perfection has released 7 albums, been remixed by literally almost every band of the scene and played stupifying amounts of festival and clubshows all around the world.. The new album, "Into the black" is likely the poppiest but also the darkest of the lot mirroring with crushing ease the two sided nature of the Aesthetic Perfection The live setup now includes ex- and current members of Combichrist but there is no doubt about the main man, Daniel Graves.

Viking harsh electro-band Centhron hails from Bremen, Germany. And one seriously brutal, yet highly controlled audiostorm of THE BOOM this techno-oriented doomsday-machine truly delivers.
But WTF? Despite being active since 2001 and one of the keyfigures of the central European scene Centhron has never set foot on Finnish soil. This is a wrongdoing strong enough to be considered blasphemy and will be corrected in november 2019!!.
The Swedes are killers on techno oriented dancie poppie Eurovision sound, no argument about that. But hey, let’s do it with a bit of a darker twist. How about melancholic synthwave considering hellish pits and dark depths of the human mind presented by a religious figure wearing a spiked SM-leathermask and two birds? Let’s do it with some ex-Ghost members, shall we, and they will nail it for sure. What could possibly go wrong?
Seriously, Priest’s hypnotic debut album “New flesh” is a hell of a strong entry and from what we’ve heard, we are truly eager to see the show on stage. In addition to being the first show in Finland, it is also a 2019 exclusive.
FEAR OF DOMINATION
There is A LOT of history behind EP and FOD, a fierce industrial show metal band from Finland. Out of Findustry regulars there is no question which band has travelled furthest and now reached about the highest point you can climb to in FInland playing machine based discometal sung in English. No wonder FOD has been signed to Out Of line and is nowadays spreading their horizons to continental Europe.

LEAETHER STRIP is the solo-project of the legendary Danish electronic industrial artist Claus Larsen. First signed by the German Electro Label Zoth Ommog in 1989, LEAETHER STRIP quickly built a buzz as one of the most exciting emerging acts in Europe in the early 90's. Leæther Strip has been and still is a big inspiration to many of todays younger acts and is still one of the most productive and most busy live acts in the scene. Leæther Strip concerts are very uptempo and energetic, and he plays lots of his classic hits like "Strap me down", "Dont tame your soul" and so many more.
First release 1989. "Japanese Bodies", and over 30 + albums has been released since then. Latest album is the 2018 album "World Molæster".
This Athens-based, one man band of Georg Psaroudakis was originally formed late in 2006. Electronic sounds fuelled from a vast range of influences and filtered through an extremely individual touch. A passionate and energetic musical attack functioning in multiple levels ushered by harsh and distorted verbal proclamations with a very conscious view of the world and the human psyche.
Since its first appearance to present day, the band counts a lot of official releases, has involved in a huge number of remixes, and shared the stage many times with other great and well-established bands around the world.

Finnish synthetizerduo is one of the freshest acts of the festival. They label their music as Synthesizer Dystopia From Pre-Nuclear War Earth. Nuff said. But not heard.
