"Gothic Visions" CD & DVD release.
We're thrilled to be able to write and tell you that we're included on the "Gothic Visions" CD & DVD release! There's a blooming superb spread of bands [which I'll post below!] contributing both a pure audio AND a video :D
The Compilation will be released on October 9th 2009 through Echozone/EDEL Records in Germany. The DVD-only version will be part of the limited edition of the next Crawling Tunes magazine, released in November 2009.
The DVD has been on in our house pretty much constantly since our copy arrived through the post. It really is a quality release & I'm hugely proud & flattered to be included :)
Funhouse ~ The Second Coming
The Beauty Of Gemina ~ This Time
The Mist of Avalon ~ Helpless Little Friend
Golden Apes ~ Ferryman
full information click here.
Some of you already know, but Lou is leaving us for France in December. Being the kind of people that only ever do things once a deadline has panicked us into action, we've decided it's time to pull our collective fingers out and get Intoxicated recorded for the end of November (meeeeeeeeeeep...) We'll then spend a month mixing it down...
Lou doesn't return until the end of March so we are now playing out the last few gigs until at least April next year. We'll return with an album to launch and itchy gig feet however!
So if you want to see us before next Spring then please ponder the following dates and see if we can send off 2009 with a BANG :D

~ gigs ~ album info :)
Leeds on the 7th is at the Subculture as part of Friday Flock. Opening are the rather superb Violet Vortex. Gig atarts at 6!
Playing York's Junction as part of Darklands on the 8th. Opening are Spekulus :)
dates feature awesome clubnights afterwards so it sets to be a fantastic
Intoxicated (our next album proper) is being put back slightly into 2010 as opposed to 2009 as originally planned. Lou is going away for a few months at the end of this year/start of next. The plan is to have everything recorded by the end of November and to spend the time she's away mixing it down.
The good news is that it'll make us set a launch date and have to stick to it! As soon as we know what date's she'll be gone, we'll set our launch date :)

us for the Sonic Rock Harvest!
Held at the beautiful Lantern theatre, Sheffield, opening act Dreamspirit will set the atmosphere with sumptuous eastern Arabic/Asian influenced electronica with a political undercurrent.
Doctor Hasbeen (I presume) will up up the tempo with some brilliant progressive space rock. Tobe followed by Dyonisis (us!) preparing the ground for Aurora ~ who supported the Ozric Tentacles in 2008 ~ bringing their own take on trance.
Headlining are Flutatious to cap the night with up tempo~psychedelic landscapes, groovy beats with a Celtic flavour.
It should be one hell of a ride!

Due to problems at the venue, we'll be going onstge a shade later than planned & doing a slightly shorter set. We'll be on at 8:30 which isn't too bad, just later than what i was telling everyone before! If you wouldn't mind passing this on to anyone you may know who's going I'd be grateful, thanks :)

As per our promise, there's an exclusive download available at http://www.reverbnation.com/dyonisis.
This was recorded at the Lantern Theatre in Sheffield where we played an acoustic set for Sieben's album launch. the track can be played or downloaded, all you need to do is joint our mailing list below to access.
The track's called Inside Out. The full electronic version was originally destined to be on our Blue Shift e.p. as a preview of the next album but it didn't quite polish up the way we would have liked so scratched it at the last minute!
The next album incidentally is shaping up nicely... We're finishing off the last few songs, getting final structures in place, arguing over production techniques and all the other joyous things there are to fight over when doing something like this ;)
Today we finally finished fighting over artwork and, as the dust settles, turn our thoughts towards the coming gigs. Full listings as they stand now are on the main page... If you fancy making it to any then don't hesitate to come and say *hi* we really appreciate you signing up to this list and whilst I can't promise extracting any sense out of us when in post~gig mode, it's always worth a try!
care and enjoy the summer while it's still here :)

* * * THIS THURS * * *
I hope all is well whichever world your brain inhabits today... Today started a bit grumbly due to the weather but then Istarted to get really excited for this Thursday... It's our gig with Lahannya and Tin Omen and it's going to be incredible :)
As i'm sure you all know, the venue's been changed to Eddies in Birmingham and, even better, the tickets now include FREE ENTRY to the clubnight afterwards... It's a request based night so *you* get to dictate the tunes!
Best wishes to everyone and hope to see you soon!

* * * BIRMINGHAM GIG VENUE CHANGE * * *
From Lahannya HQ:
"I wanted to keep you up-to-date with what is happening right now. Unfortunately I yesterday got a message from Craig at The Flapper saying that they double-booked themselves for the 21st May. Apparently they have an annually happening local gig that they’d forgotten about until recently but that takes priority for them. I am extremely unhappy about the situation and made him aware of the fact that there are several bands on the bill, that advertising, posters and flyers had gone out and that tickets had been sold on Ticketline, Seetickets, MusicNonStop, the Lahannya online shop as well as by Dyonisis."
Now for the good news...
Lahannya has managed to sort a new venue in record time!
EDDIES ROCK CLUB *
We will be there with a~vengeance!

ON a more cheerful note...
We did a photoshoot earlier this month with Gordie Clavil ~ Source Photography.
We were blooming cold but mercifully not as soggy as the last time we attempted anything like that!
Here's some of the results...(click on the thumbnails below to see the fullsize image)...

!! Important ~ If You Have a CD On Order From Us !!
Twice lately we've had cases of people ordering CDs off us and the payment has gone through to our PayPal account but we've received no email notification of payment along with the shipping info.
As a result some orders we've not sent due to being completely unaware that they've been made!
If you're one of these people or have had a CD on order for longer than a week without receiving anything then please send us a message and we'll check to see if we've had a payment through with no notification again. Obviously we'll try and get the discs out to you as soon as possible!
This only applies to direct orders from the UK and Europe. If you're going through CD Baby then there should be no problem.
Sorry ~ hopefully the system will fix itself soon!

Just a bit of an update...
I've been spending the last few weeks wrestling with FaceBook and I'd like to try and get our songs up on our band page but to no avail... I don't know if it's the new layout being buggy or my incompetence or both!
Anyway... Should you fancy a listen or wish to dedicate a song to a friend then all our tracks from the first album can be found here: http://www.ilike.com/artist/Dyonisis
In other news... And apologies to those of you not in the UK... We have a few gigs coming up in May with none other than Lahannya...
up is Birmingham on the 21st
...Just send me a message and I'll get on it.
a week later on the 28th we're off to sunny Manchester!
Hope you all have a great weekend, I'm planning one full of going to gigs and letting my hair down :)
PS ~ Feel free to add me on FaceBook under "Nel Dyonisis" It might make getting hold of those cheaper tickets easier!

Firestorm Media sent us some questions not so long ago and if you're interested in Nel's witterings about the band then follow this link and peruse at your leisure.
Mick Mercer's New Book... Music To Die For...
MUSIC TO DIE FOR by MICK MERCER
Mick Mercer's fifth book concerning Goth has now arrived and is out now ~ and we're in it!
MUSIC TO DIE FOR is 624 pages long, containing individual entries on 3,581 different bands, from 70 countries, with 183 photos. It covers bands from the beginning of these scenes to the present day and, wherever possible, contains full line-up details and discographies as well as unusual facts revealed by many of the bands. This is the biggest guide ever printed about the underground scenes in which Goth, Post-Punk and all things noir co-exist with equal splendour.
Interested? The link above means you can buy direct from the publisher, thereby supporting them for their trust in taking on such a project. They accept Paypal and for such a chunky book they’re doing a very cheap deal on postage. They are actually an independent record label and have released a fantastic series of Goth re-releases, so as they support the scene it would be nice if people acknowledged that by buying directly from them.
If you want a listen "Hunter (Equinoxe Orchestral Mix)" can be downloaded and listened to here: http://www.equinoxestudios.co.uk/hunter.mp3

New Review of Blue Shift!
Jason from JH Music has reviewed Blue Shift :)
The full review can be perused here.
Some bits we especially like:
of the century."
Further to this, we can also announce a clubnight after the gig until 2am ~ who cares about being single on Valentine's when there's dancing to be had?!
Did I mention that entry is just £3 ...BARGAIN!
EVENT PAGE HERE!
Thought I'd also mention that I set up a profile on Facebook to help with even invites... If you fancy adding yourself to me I'll send you invites when playing your area (if the network bit shows up)...
If you fancy it, I live here!
And the full band Facebook lives here!
"In conclusion, Dyonisis are a band that are consistent, dynamic, interesting and just flat out good. They are everything I could want in a band."
Full review here: http://www.femmemetal.net/dybs.htm

Should you wish to dedicate a Dyonisis song to a friends or add it to your ilike playlist it's actually possible now!
We're still getting to grips with the app so expect it to become more shiny over the coming weeks... And if you want to help out by adding to the tag cloud then we'll love you forever & ever!
