Mr. and Mrs.Fiend, masters of manic techno-punk, celebrated the charms of the paranormal.
Hissing. Eccentric. Theatrical. Screaming, singing, writhing....
in the background a zombie-like rock-guitar (Gonzo) incarnated in psychedelic delirium, which merged with the electronic fantasies of Mrs.Fiend and worked as an acoustic hallucinogen....
Nik's Nosferatu-adapted, batcave-deformed shape...
more than two hours of the Fiendshow....
a rabid Pogo within the audience....

Reflections Of Darkness (in English)
Alien Sex Fiend's cult status is partly due to their very unique style of music, but also to their absolutely freaky and manic live shows, which have a brilliance which is disappearing in today’s live circuit.

Nik Fiend - a skinny zombie wandering up and down with one hell of a charisma... the disquieting ‘Manic Depression’.... The audience at this point had already completely lost their minds to the hypnotizing and compelling performance.... When you were thinking the mood was on a peak you were taught better with following ‘I Walk The Line’, where the moshing took on extreme forms....‘So Much To Do So Little Time / Bun-Ho!’ impressed with the cunning sampling... Mrs Fiend left her place behind the analogue synths to play guitar on ‘Boneshaker Baby’ ...

That was the end…wasn't it? It wasn’t - the closing chapter ‘B.B.F.C’ became an ecstatic celebration and after the show you were asking yourself what had happened here... I’d call it a fabulous, creepy, wicked party with a band that hopefully will be with us for a long time to come. Not many of this calibre are left.

Alien Sex Fiend

An audience-eye view (in German)
Alien Sex Fiend has lost none of its fascination, which made the concert an unforgettable experience for the audience. Old classics such as "Ignore The Machine" or "I Walk The Line" had the masses raging in total ecstasy.

Terrorverlag (in German)
The well-filled (Bielefeld) Forum, received the trio enthusiastically & the audience immediately began to celebrate the band.... like a "Best of" Show with one classic after another. "Now I'm Feeling Zombiefied" with the tradition of Nik emptying the on-stage garbage can, throwing skulls, bones and rats into the crowd. "Dance of the Dead" from the new album... "Hurricane Fighter Plane", "Tarot" and "RIP" before the encore.
