Diorama (Discography)

Diorama was founded in 1996 as a musical project of Torben Wend. Torben’s music was soon recognized by Adrian Hates of Diary of Dreams, so with his support and the support of Rainer Assmann (Daf/ Fad Gadget), a debut-album “Pale” was released in 1999. The members of Diorama have collaborated with a number of bands, including Diary of Dreams, Angels & Agony, Painbastard, Klangstabil and Frozen Plasma.
Diorama are often labeled as “electropop”, “future pop” or “darkwave” (on their debut "Pale") etc. The melodies can be fast-paced and backed by rhythms and can be melancholic ballads. The diapason of the lyrics’ motifs takes inspiration from the inner world of the writer himself (Torben Wendt) and also his surroundings. The lyrics are written in a dark, kafkian style and are often ambiguous. Distinctive playing with words and metaphors is one of the prominent virtues of Diorama’s artistic opus.

Pale (1999)

Diorama (Discography)

Label: Accession Records
Catalog #: A 013
Format: CD

Released: 24 Sep 1999
Genre: Electronic
Style: Synth-pop
Quality: mp3, CBR@320Kbit, Joint Stereo
Size: 95.37 + 37.21 Mb (5% Recovery record)

About:
The music is pretty similar to that of Diary of Dreams. But Diorama is softer and has some nice dark wave influences as well. The good vocals and the complete absence of metal guitars contribute to making this a rather unordinary album. This is not traditional gothic rock — more calm gothic dark wave stuff with synthesizers. The music is far from happy and you can almost guess Diorama is a German band. You get eleven good songs on this album, one of the best gothic releases this year.

Genre: Electronic
Style: EBM, Electro, Synth-pop

Size: 95.37 + 53.41 Mb (5% Recovery record)

About:
Imagine being dragged underwater. Looking up toward the surface, rays of light beaming through the waves and swells. Silencing and intense. This is Diorama. This is "Her Liquid Arms".
"Her" being the great intimidating ocean. Full of depth, drama, and intrigue, metaphors and visions, "Her Liquid Arms" is truely echanting. With full, meaty synths and complex orchestral arrangements, frontman Torben Wendt demonstrates his strong sense of progression that carries you to the ocean floor.
Lyrics are fragmented and listy, but empowering. Revealing very little about the man behind Diorama.

About:
Nach ihrem im April veröffentlichten Debüt "her liquid arms" erfreuen uns die melancholischen Elektro Waver mit ihrer ersten Maxi CD. Die Beiden neuen Stücke "device" und "panes of glass" kommen im typischen Diorama Gewand daher. Treibender Rhythmus, eingängige Beats gepaart mit verspielter Elektronik. Das Ganze aufgebaut auf einen traurigen Grundtenor. Eindringliche, betörende Vocals erzeugen eine schwermütige Atmosphäre, die durch die poppigen Soundstrukturen aufgelockert werden. "panes of glass erinnert daher ein wenig an den Wave Pop der 80er. Im Remix des bekannten "advance" scheuen sich Diorama nicht ihre gefühlvollen Melodielinien mit teilweise abgedrehten elektronischen Spielereien darzubieten. Der schleichende Rhythmus wird mit tanzbaren Beats unterlegt.

Style: Synth-pop
Quality: mp3, CBR@320Kbit, Joint Stereo
Size: 95.37 + 73.58 Mb (5% Recovery record)

About:
The production is rougher than before and therefore is this album less bombastic than it’s predecessor. The guitar got a more prominent role on this album as well. Not too loud, although ‘The Girls’ (one of the highlights of this album) sometimes almost sounds as US industrial. Before that song ‘Logic Friends’ has proven that Diorama still creates well written (almost pop) songs with great singing and strange (but not disturbing) breaks. Of course the CD is also filled with beautiful sensitive songs which are close to ballads. Listen for instance to ‘Dear Brother’, ‘Helmets Down’ (a real ballad), (the beautiful) ‘Someone Dies’ and moving, in German sung, ‘Unzerstört’. With “Amaroid” Diorama proves once again to create beautiful atmospheric and inventive music.

Repale (2005)

Diorama (Discography)

Label: Accession Records
Catalog #: A 087
Format: CD
Country: Germany
Released: 24 Oct 2005
Genre: Electronic
Style: Synth-pop
Quality: mp3, CBR@320Kbit, Stereo
Size: 95.37 + 92.58 Mb (5% Recovery record)

About:
“Repale” seems to be recorded with the dance floors in mind. It has been done in their own typical way, because the remixes sound more up tempo, but the music still contains the atmospheric and tempo changes. It makes “Repale” worthwhile for the fan. From ‘Drowned’ on (with a chorus line that reminds most of Diary Of Dreams) it becomes clear that Diorama, in spite of the use of other different artists, still sounds like Diorama. ‘The Girls’ is, like ‘Logic Friends’ (by Kartagon), more up tempo, but still has a quiet end. Striking are the Italian version of ‘Il Bacio Della Realizzazione’ (with help from Klangstabil) and ‘The Rich Are All Perverted’ (in which the voice of Torben is distorted). The remakes of songs out of the “Pale” period make this album worthwhile for everyone.

Synthesize Me (2007)

Diorama (Discography)

Label: Accession Records
Catalog #: A 099
Format: CD, Maxi-Single
Country: Germany
Released: 23 Feb 2007
Genre: Electronic
Style: EBM, Electro
Quality: mp3, VBR@~256Kbit, Joint Stereo
Size: 62.96 Mb (5% Recovery record)

About:
The titletrack ‘Synthesize Me’ is a typical Diorama song, in which the balance between melancholy and danceability is nicely done. This song is in 4 versions on this MCD though, which i think is a bit too much as i would have rather seen some more extra songs for the money instead of an extended version, a piano version and a more experimental ‘’dada’’ version with 80’s minimal influnces and vocoder vocals. The pianoversion hwoever is very beautiful and reminds of the early days of Diorama around the Pale release. Furthermore the MCD has three extra songs that actually are much nicer than the titletrack. First ‘Erase me’, which is a comp4elling song, then the dark and slightly ritual sounding ‘Truth and Movement’, and finally the heavy ‘The Rational Anthem’ which really delivers, due to not only piano, but also beats, sampling and guitars been used, which results in a very explosive yet beautiful track.

A Different life (2007)

Diorama (Discography)

Genre: Electronic
Style: Synth-pop
Quality: mp3, CBR@320Kbit, Stereo
Size: 95.37 + 91.65 Mb (5% Recovery record)

About:
The new album of Diorama is a bit like drinking black coffee and red wine:you feel invigoration, nostalgia, affection and also a bitter taste. Cause that's what the album is like: on the one hand melancholic, ironic, thought-provoking and on the other hand energetic, dynamic and electrifying. I don't know if you get involved into discussion on whether “A Different Life” sounds like Diorama or not — at least this time there's a good reason to debate as the album is really good: ambiguous and provoking, tough not necessarily amusement-oriented. One thing is sure – a fair dose of good music is guaranteed.

    Одна из лучших групп этого стиля.
    Diary of Dreams конечно их обгоняет и по разнообразию и по качеству. Хотя "обгоняет" врядли применимо с учетом состава коллективов ))
