From winter 2007 to spring 2009 Minusheart worked on their first long player ‘Disease’ which was released in october 2009 on the German label Echozone. Artists like Monolith, Accessory or Myk Jung of The Fair Sex collaborated in the production of Minusheart’s debut. The first edition of ‘Disease’ is containing the results of these fabulous sessions.
In July Minusheart shot their first short film ‘Feel No Pain’ which was directed by Robert Sukrow.
In autumn 2009 the smash hit ‘Don’t Feed The Cats’ entered the Spanish Club Charts and became a hit across Europe. In meanwhile several musicians from all over the world started remixing the songs of Minusheart. Among others America’s industrial shooting stars Alter Der Ruine and the German electro heroes Destroid dealed with the tunes of Minusheart. In Spring 2010 Echozone spread around the release of Minusheart’s limited remix album ‘Healed’. Simultaneously the band produced their low budget music clip ‘Lifespan’ according to the ‘Breathtaker Club Version’ of Mono.Sys.
Depending on the sickness of Benden it became as calm as a clock around Minusheart in summer 2010. The Band which hails from Aachen (Germany) cancelled the planned live activities. During these days some compilations (like the imposing sampler Electro Pop Vol. 2 with O.M.D., Covenant, VNV Nation, Front Line Assembly, …) keep the name ‘Minusheart’ alive.
Already on his trip through Southern Europe in summer 2009 Diver started to write on the next Minusheart album ‘The Big Idea’. In February 2011 Benden left Minusheart. The very next day Vary, who once was the mastermind of Cyme In Bloom, joined Minusheart. Yet in winter 2010/11 Diver met him for some jam sessions at the Low Noise Studios Aachen. In Spring Diver and Vary finished “The Big Idea”. In May 2011 the Belgian ‘enfant terrible’ Wildhoney, the well-known drummer of Luc Van Acker’s RevCo World Crew, and Upstream, a talented electronic musician from Aachen, dived into Minusheart. In June Frederic Sapart directed Minusheart’s third video clip ‘Drawback’ which is also pronounced as the new single. After a Two-Years-Journey ‘The Big Idea’ will be released in October 2011.
