    The long awaited debut full length has finally arrived. And the wait was well worth it. Diät have worked, worked and reworked these 8 songs until they were perfect. Who is this band you ask?

    Let us introduce you:

    "Brought together by a shared enthusiasm for bleak UK punk and a history of playing in hardcore bands, Berlin based DIÄT have created a sound that they have described, perhaps not entirely seriously, as ‘tough new wave’. Fans of Crisis, Killing Joke and The Mob (UK) should be pleased by the band’s unlikely synthesis of depressive drift and cranked, accelerated energy.
    ‘Positive Energy’ was recorded last Winter while huddled in a practice space overlooking the industrial landscape of frozen East Berlin, the album finds Diät reining in the threads of malignant enthusiasm still peppered throughout their earlier recordings (both 7"s previously released on this fine imprint) to focus on the cynicism and dejectedness that binds them as a band.

    Intending to create an album that showcases each song individually and plays out like a mixtape, Diät have boldly created a sound all their own - the sound of checking your account balance to see if you’ve been paid yet…but you haven’t."

    THIS IS THE JAPANESE PRESSING that comes w/ a modified artwork and an extra obo stripe. Looks gorgeaus

    Brought together by a shared enthusiasm for bleak UK punk and a history of playing in hardcore bands, Berlin based DIÄT have created a sound that they have described, perhaps not entirely seriously, as ‘tough new wave’. Fans of Crisis, Killing Joke and The Mob should be pleased by the band’s unlikely synthesis of depressive drift and cranked, accelerated energy. Their debut LP, ‘Positive Energy’, will be released this Fall on Iron Lung Records in the US and Adagio830 in Europe. Recorded last Winter while huddled in a practice space overlooking the industrial landscape of frozen East Berlin, the album finds Diät reining in the threads of malignant enthusiasm still peppered throughout their earlier recordings to focus on the cynicism and dejectedness that binds them as a band. Intending to create an album that showcases each song individually and plays out like a mixtape, Diät have boldly attempted to create a sound of their own - the sound of checking your account balance to see if you’ve been paid yet…but you haven’t.

    LP comes w/ a 10 page booklet and a DL code

  • DIÄT - Positive Disintegration LP (!!!)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    IRON LUNG release. DIÄT - Positive Disintegration

    Years in the making, the follow-up or maybe even companion piece to 2015's Positive Energy, Positive Disintegration sees the band with a bit more of a pop zap to the ever present post punk dreariness of modern Berlin life... Or even modern life at large as most of the lyrical content has to do with the monotony of barely getting by or trying to have a meaningful exchange with a remotely interesting person. These things are hard to come by most of the time and this music eats at that very feeling. It's almost enough to make you wanna throw in the towel and move to Spain without a care in the world to haunt your remaining days. You probably won't though, you'll most likely listen to this record while you sip your overpriced room temperature coffee drink whilst ordering new bulbs for your anti depression lamp from a major online retailer. It just feels like life is getting away from you, ya know? Dark. Housed in 24pt reverse board jackets with lyric sheet, poster and download card included.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Positive Energy via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • CLOCK OF TIME - Pestilent Planet LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    PEEPS OF DIÄT

    “Pestilent Planet is the debut 7 track album from Berlin’s Clock of Time and it’s released a mere 8 months after they played their first gig. The band comes fully formed and up to speed but that is not surprising considering some of the members other projects such as Diat, Vexx and Useless Eaters. Pestilent Planet is a stunning statement of intent. The sound is a driving mix of post punk like Jeopardy era The Sound, and that classic 80’s death rock that Vex and Arch Criminals perfected. It’s instant and urgent especially tracks like ‘Rotten Master’ which has a fuller Joy Division esque vibe especially in the skeletal guitar hook. It will be love on first listen.” (Sean Forbes)

    Pestilent Planet comes housed in a sleeve drawn and designed by Nicky Rat.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Positive Energy via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

adagio830 Berlin, Germany

Adagio830 started in 1997 as a small distro out of my bedroom and a little bit later the first release has been out. The Cole Quintet LP got co-released with various other Diy Labels back then and since then we released tons of records by friends and I´m proud of everything single releases I did over the years.
