Although the first volume of this Depeche Mode cover album received a more than successful echo from both indie and mainstream worlds, this project would have definitely remained a one-off project if some of our label bands had not insistently pressed us to launch a second volume. Once we got to hear some of the first written versions, we were sold! They were too good to be left laying around. We then touched base with several other Alfa Matrix artists and in no time, a second volume was born featuring the label’s “classic renowned bands” (Leaether Strip, Ayria, Kant Kino, Komor Kommando, I:Scintilla, Technoir, Helalyn Flowers, Plastic Noise Experience, Implant, Krystal System, Acylum, etc.), as well as the work from the newly arrived label artists and others who did not make it on time for the previous edition: Armageddon Dildos, Malakwa, amGod, Razorfade, Alien Vampires, Studio-X, Unter Null, Diskonnekted, Gaytron…
Two years further down the road and here we are with a second volume of the Alfa Matrix label roster covering what has to be the best synthpop band in pop history. Since 2008, a lot has happened in the Depeche Mode camp, tours, a new album and the band celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of their first single. It's all in the spirit of being a Depeche Mode fan, specifically reflected in the selection of the covered songs...
Compiled by and for Depeche Mode fans, "Alfa Matrix Re:covered - a tribute to Depeche Mode vol.2" will offer you once more a very own insight in what makes the Depeche Mode songs so special.
