about

With the release in 2008 of their debut album "Body Code" on Alfa Matrix, Belarusian act DIFFUZION seduced the world with their fresh and highly melodic female-fronted techno-pop / EBM. On this new album "Winter Cities", DIFFUZION expand their musical horizon and reveal how much they have gained in songwriting maturity and production finesse. Armed with an overall solid club compatibility, the new songs thrust you into an uplifting emotional climax where intelligent synthetic song arrangements enter in symbiosis with addictive melodies and the strong and sensual vocal performance of their charismatic female singer Xev.

Alternating straight and harder industrial moments ("C.S.", "Pure Venom" or "DbD") and more embracing mid-tempo darkwave textures ("Lace Of Veins", "The One" or yet the album title track), "Winter Cities" will surprise you with its unique mixture of frozen electronic tones and haunting catchy vocals. Take the upfront dance-power of body music, spice it with the revolting sexiness of AYRIA, the catchiness of DE/VISION and the impulsive anger of PZYCHOBITCH the whole melt in the intricate arrangements of FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, and you get an exploding cocktail we might call DIFFUZION.

You also are treated to 2 bonus versions of the club hit "C.S." respectively rendered by the Swedish tough guys of AUTODAFEH with their faultless pumping bass-lines and by label-mate ACYLUM with their sinister bombastic dark elektro assaults.

The limited carton box edition of "Winter Cities" also contains a bonus-CD with a great variety of remixes, that include the intelligent inspiring electro and EBM cuts by such bands as CONTROLLED COLLAPSE, MORTAL VOID, IMPLANT, [DE:AD:CIBEL], EFF DST, IN[TOXIN], a sophisticated, harmonic industrial track of FABIOUS CORPUS ACT , an uplifting future pop remix by their Belgium colleagues PSY’AVIAH, a dark-ebm tune by CYGNOSIC, and a mysterious and deep remix by L’OMBRE. Add to this cover version of DEPECHE MODE and a cover by TILL IT BLEEDS, plus an enchanting collaboration with INXERA SYNDROME.

Track Name: Winter Cities
The distance you've run
To reach what is gone
No longer play
Their favourite game
Of money and fame
Of hatred and pain
So distant

Chorus
Winter cities with streets so cold
And frozen doors - your home's no more
Life lived on the inside without constraints
Of time and space has come to the end
Has come to the end

Hey, you grow day by day
You've found your own way
You've won your own game
No longer try
Try to justify
Your weakness
Don't lie
To dreams as they die

Chorus
Winter cities with streets so cold
And frozen doors - your home's no more
Life lived on the inside without constraints
Of time and space has come to the end
Faceless people with eyes so cold
And frozen hearts your friends no more
Life lived on the inside without constraints
Of time and space has come to the end
Has come to the end
Track Name: Dbd (while you can)
Let me see you dance
Take this only chance
Make me lose control
If you want to buy my soul
Take me down this road
Free all what you fought
Thrill me with your lies
Be the one to shake the dice

Play this little game
While I'm almost tame
Take your time tonight
Let me get to what you hide
Teach me by your rules
Taste me with your tools
Free all what you fight
Show me what you are tonight
Track Name: Lace Of Veins
I close my eyes
I feel your hands
I breathe with your lungs
We embrace
I hold you tight
I share your senses
Live through your life
Lace of Veins

I close my eyes
I feel your skin
I hear your songs
As we embrace
I hold you tight
I see your dreams
I flow through your blood
Lace of Veins

Chorus
Weaving lace of veins
Track Name: C.S.
She walks in a glide
To destroy and destruct
Her motives are clear
She is pissed off and fucked
She looks like a lady,
She's good with disguise
She hates, she pretends
She betrays and she lies

The one who is stronger
Will always survive
No matter how hard
Weak will struggle and strive
No rules to obey
She keeps targets in mind
The targets to seek for
And targets to find

With name to restore
With her faith to defend
She wants light no more
And her future's restrained
No rules to obey
She keeps targets in mind
The targets to seek for
And targets to find
Track Name: Pure Venom
They took your past, erased your youth
Erasure's done - lies became truth
Your feelings dead, your mind decays
You mustn't think, you should obey

If there was hope - today it's gone
Your pride is now somebody's fun
You burn alive under your skin
You're pure venom, vengeance within

Chorus
Give me light, give me life
Give me sorrows and the debts
Give me anger, give me pain
Give me everything I had

Give me light, give me life
Give me anguish and my debts
Give me hope, give me pain
I'm so sick of feeling dead

So sick of feeling dead
I want back everything I had

They took your past, erased your truth
You're left in dust you've broken loose
You burn alive under your skin
You're pure rage, vengeance within

If there was hope - today it's gone
Your pride is now somebody's fun
Your feelings dead, your mind decays
You mustn't think, you should obey
Track Name: Dust2Dust
I searched for real, the one that's true
I tried to feel what I thought you
Could bring in me. The lies I fed
They grew so deep inside my head
The time is changed, the past is lost
What moves around is only dust
The darkness falls, synthetic dreams
Are in my eyes. Can you hear me?

Chorus
Trying to save what is dying
The road that I led
I found it was wrong, so wrong
Just built inside of my head

The more I wished the less I got
I tried so hard it only hurt
So many times I lost my way
All my mistakes - they made me stay
I searched for real, the one that's true
I tried to feel what I thought you
Could bring in me. The lies I fed
They grew so deep inside my head
Track Name: Vogue
Stylish deeds, stylish words
Stylish dreams and stylish thoughts
Stylish life for stylish world
Stylish faith for stylish God

Vogue is your own mind
Moral charts
Vogue is your own soul
Finest arts
Vogue is sense of being
Goal to strive
Vogue is Manual
For your own life

Stylish feelings, stylish taste
Stylish love and stylish hate
Stylish values for stylish people
Stylish being for spiritual cripples

Vogue is your own mind
Vogue's what makes you blind
Vogue is sense of being
Vogue's what you believe in
Track Name: For the Prey
Chorus
I want my prey
I love this game
Now start to run
I'll be your keeper
We're falling deeper
Let's get some fun

Wired machinery, rusty turbines
Facing the dark you fight for you lives
No future to lose, no past to regret
The better you're trained - the further you'll get

Why you are here - you're asking yourself
Pride and conceit and a bit of myself
Strive to survive, but know - you'll be mine
The strongest will live, the weakest must die

Hey, release your brain
Come on, I love this game
Babe, I want some fun
Run, I load my gun
Track Name: What Will You Do For Love
Ready to sell your dreams
Ready to lose control
What will you do for love
Ready to trade your soul

Ready to cut one's life
Ready to rise and fall
What will you do for love
Ready to trade your soul

Ready to live forever
Ready to be a doll
What will you do for love
Ready to trade your soul

Ready to maim your body
Ready to kneel and crawl
What will you do for love
Ready to trade your soul
Track Name: She’s Machine
Supersonic speed of her reactions
Hyperactive need for your affection
Known you once - she will never lose you
She's your guard, she'll stand by you

Takes no limits, doesn't know objections
Always near, led by your directions
Has no name, her number is Xv18
She's your guard, she's machine
Track Name: Playing God
Just step back and close your eyes to see me
Find the truth between the lies - it's so near
If you lost your long way round - hear my voice
Now it's time to choose the side - make your choice

If you fail to understand - I'll teach you
It's so hard to realize what is true
Give me everything you own, all you got
What you're selling I will buy - I'm playing God

Chorus
If you want to break the rules - make it clear
If you fallow me so far - we'll be whole
If you want to join the fools - let me hear
If not scared to bring it out - bare your sou
Track Name: The One
The one who makes you weak
Who left you whimper on the floor
Who never lets you speak
And who has faith in you no more

The one who's blind to see
You're dead from what you keep inside
The one who'll always think
You feel alright, I feel alright

Chorus
Is it the hero that you want
The model you've been looking for
Who gave you reasons to distort
Your sense of life and put to dirt

Is it the model that you want
The hero you've been looking for
The one you wanted to betray
The one you promised to adore

The one who makes you weak
Who left you stagger in the crowd
Who'll never let you leave
The one you follow full of doubt

The one who's blind to see
You're dead from what you keep inside
The one who'll always think
You feel alright, I feel alright
Track Name: Blind
Down - they want to break you
Now - they want to stake you
Lies - they're going to feed your pride
It will defeat you

Pay - you have to choose your name
You've got to prove your faith
You've got to find your place
They're going to blind you

Down - they want to get you
Now - you will forget your face
You've got to find your place
They're going to blind you

Lies - they're going to feed your pride
They will defeat you
Pay - you've got to choose your day
You've got to prove your

Hard to overtake
Blindness just a fake
No one left to speak
Now take your free kick
Hallowed names to burn
New faces to turn
Freed of what you fear
Still this ain't for me
