The snarly veined beginnings of the extraterrestrial fiends. Nik, Ms. Fiend & company really pop out from behind their facepaint to have a good-time screamalong. Who can listen to Wardance and not want to pop out of their seat and jump around like a 5 year old playing 1-little-2 little-3 little indiannnns!? "I Walk Alone" and the ever-popular-fiend-anthem "Drive My Rocket Up Uranus" are excellent stand-outs!
The story of Inferno: The Odyssey Continues picks up where the original game Epic leaves off. The Rexxons had captured the human "champion" and genetically altered him to be one of their own. Flying into a rage, the modified champion kills all of the Rexxons on the station, and regains his human form. His newly modified genetic structure now allows his body to be rebuilt from the "information vortex" should his ship be destroyed in combat, but it will only work two times.. The soundtrack of the game was heavily publicized during the period of its release for being composed by British deathrock band Alien Sex Fiend.
Alien Sex Fiend are an English gothic rock band, formed in London, England in 1982. Alien Sex Fiend were formed by Nik Wade (Nik Fiend), Christine Wade (Mrs. Fiend), David James (Yaxi Highrizer) and Johnny Freshwater (Johnny Ha-Ha) in late 1982 at the Batcave club in London (where Nik worked). The band became known in the gothic scene for its dark, electronic industrial-leaning sound, heavy samples, loops, dub remixes and manic vocals. Wade had previously been a member of the Alice Cooper-influenced bands the Earwigs and Mr. & Mrs. Demeanour, and later the punk band Demon Preacher (later known as the Demons).
2010 release, the 13th studio album from the Goth legends, their first new album in six years. Death Trip features 10 original songs recorded in Hallucinosound. Self-written, self-produced and self-financed, Death Trip is a truly independent release from a totally independent band. This album is 100% Alien Sex Fiend's own creation! The album is a B movie sci-fi / horror concept, each track with a connection to the next, covering a diverse sonic spectrum from old skool Fiend sound to Punk and Industrial to current cutting edge.
3 CDs spanning the 35 year history of seminal goth and industrial legends including five previously unreleased recordings. Previousle unreleased mixed of ‘NOW I’M FEELING ZOMBIEFIED’ and ‘I WALK THE LINE’ - two of the Fiends' best-loved tracks. Two brand new tracks from the forthcoming new album, “POSSESSED”.
In the wake of shock rock's introduction to the mainstream via Marilyn Manson, it is easy to forget that several bands toiled in the underground making much better noise with similar theatrics. One such artist is Nik Wade, known to fans as "Nik Fiend," the creative mind behind Alien Sex Fiend.
