Madeleine LeRoy is an iconic figure in the S/M Fetish scene, well known as Domina, Model and Singer (Umbra et Imago).
This is her second CD, following 2007's 'Chateau Noir', subtitled 'Painball' after a famous SM-Party, that reached international cult status over the past decade. But.. unlike her first album, which was mainly composed by music for SM-sessions (underlined with spoken words by SacherMasoch, Marquis de Sade etc.), this her new album is much more musical and at the same time more exotic.
Amazing the cover-version of the 80s Hits 'Africa' by the Dutch electro-act 'PERU' or the 12-minutes lasting, very epic 'Opus Palestrina’, that is dominated by hypnotic drums and powerful electro-rhythms, enriched by oriental meolodies and chants. The biggest suprise though represents the mindblowing cover of the legendary hit 'Lovemachine'. In short: With Painball LeRoy managed to deliver a surprisingly mature and multi-facetted opus, on which stories of Sex (of course...) and our world in general still play the main role!
