18 January 2011 XMH Press Statement: Of course everyone will remember the tragedy at last year’s Loveparade in Duisburg, Germany. Well known DJ’s Paul Oakenfold, Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk recorded the song ‘Remember Love’ under the name DJ’s United, to help out the victims of the tragedy.

But… the basic melody line from the song ‘Remember Love’ sounds very similar to the melody from the song ‘Global Killer’ written by dutch dark electro band XMH. The song ‘Global Killer’ comes from the XMH debut album ‘Time To Play’ released in 2007 and went to nr. 2 in the Dutch Underground Charts. The song ‘Global Killer’ was a big hit in southern European clubs. Especially the ‘Global Killer Remix’ by NG-Pro and DJ Led Manville were and still are club favorites in Spain.

Because XMH shares the deepest sympathy with all the victims and their loved ones, XMH thinks it’s inappropriate to take legal actions against DJ’s United.


13 November 2010 our small autumn tour has come to an end. XMH will take a short leave from the stage. We are in the process of writing new material. We want to try out different sounds and experiment with new musical approaches.

25 February 2009 Every year german underground music magazine Sonic Seducer organises a Battle Of The Bands competition. In this year's competition 50 bands entered and XMH reached nr. 5 (!!!) with the song 'Truth'. Many thanks to everyone who voted for us! http://www.sonic-seducer.de/

24 February 2009 Much to our regret we have to inform that Emélie Nicolaï is no longer a band-member of XMH anymore. The very busy XMH tourschedule and futureplans for XMH made it difficult for her to combine all of these with her own activities in the band Psy'Aviah, which forced her to make a decision between the two bands.XMH needs a female singer/keyboard-player who wants to go for it 100%, and therefore we had to ask her to leave XMH so she can fully concentrate on her own band and XMH can move on. Emélie Nicolaï has only been in XMH for a short time when she replaced Charlot Wever and it sure has been a fun and great time. We wish Emélie all the best, and good luck with her own band. A new singer for XMH has been found and her name will be announced in a couple of days.

11 August 2008 Some sad news, Charlot Wever has left XMH. During the recordings for the new XMH album she informed us she no longer wanted to be in XMH anymore. She wants to attend more time to her personal life and studies. Although we were completely surprised and shocked by this news, we respect her decision and wish her all the best for the future. Charlot, we love you, and hope you enjoyed the great times in XMH. All the best from XMH and management.
