From inception, Blue Movie has set out to make a unique collection of original music that treads the lines between musical genres. Their sound encapsulates many of the band's musical influences touching on a variety of genres such as heavy rock, metal, industrial, goth, synth and pop. This genre bending sound is transferred to the stage at every live performance via an extremely high energy, theatrical stage presence that lends itself to the dramatic emotion of the music.
Discography: From 2012 to present the band has released numerous albums, along with many music videos and comic books.
The debut EP ,“8MM Love Songs”, and it’s single, "Murder Will Out” , was released to great reception and inspired the bands first comic book titled "On the loose".
The sequel EP, "Delusions in Technicolor”, further expressed the band's need to grow their sound while striving to push the limits of their writing and production skills in the studio. The single "Sewing Shadows” set the mood for an extended music video and two new comic books. "Survive the Five" & “Revelations".
The third release, "Synthetic III”, embraced a darker tonality along with some lineup changes. The title tracks “Nebula” & "Electric Water” were released alongside another comic titled "Echoes Across Time” and spawned the idea for an alter ego to Blue Movie under the moniker Black Film which is used on the page and off to express different facets of the band’s personality.
The latest release, "Broken Machines” , sees the band reaching deeper then ever before to create a culmination of sound and emotion that rivals anything they have done in the past. Released alongside a new digital comic of the same title and two new music videos for the tracks “Prisoner” & “Cold Song”.

Press: "Blue Movie's show is full-on energy with relentless, solid metal riffing. The band tore through a crackin’ set of pummelling tunes before taking a well-earned rest. And their drummer is an absolute machine. She is fantastic.” - RPMonline.co.UK

The Cold Song
The Cold Song
NebulaAs the feature song of the album, Nebula introduced a sexier, darker side of Black Film with the release of this fetish-like music video. Heavy, rhythmic double pedals, accompanied by an infectious guitar riff and a contagious chorus equals that song you just can't get out of your head!! The song was intended to have a very anthem driven chorus that would imprint on your mind and soul. Mission Accomplished.
AmbrosiaInspired by the movie,"Them Lovely Bones", due to the impact of the story line. In order to bring it to life, the female underlying chorus parts were performed by Eileen Fox. The song weaves in and out of the minds of the killer and victim, using the ghostly female vocals to give it the appropriate texture.
IgniteThis song was inspired by actual recent band events and intended to capture the range of feelings and emotions one goes through when reflecting on the hard and important decisions we are all forced to make in life, as well as excepting the decisions of others that effect us. Ignite encapsulates the manic wave of emotion instrumentally and lyrically as the song ranges from catchy attention grabbing choruses, to smooth heartfelt verses. The breakdown is mainly electronic, filled with deep stirring synths and an even deeper moving vocal line that is brimming with angst.
Pleasure dome vs 2Tribes (RemakemashUp)
Pleasure dome vs 2Tribes (RemakemashUp)As part of Blue Movie/Black Film' s mission to innovate in all endeavors, this is a complete remake, combining two different and separate songs from the popular eighties band Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Redesigned from the ground up and woven together to create a tapestry of pulsing electronic sound that exists underneath a solid churning bass rhythm and strong, proclaiming, anthem-like vocal line.
Electric Water Blue Movie
Electric Water Blue Movie"Electric Water" is the first single from Blue Movie's upcoming 3rd. release titled "SYNTHETIC". A transition once again from their last release "Delusions in Technicolor" and the debut release "8MM LOVESONGS" the band demonstrates their diversity in songwriting and originality. With the addition of 2 new key members, Blue Movie sets out to create not imitate the "future of music".
Electric Water "teaser"
Electric Water "teaser""Electric Water" will be the 1st single to be unveiled by Blue Movie® from their eagerly anticipated 3rd release now confirmed as “SYNTHETIC”. This “teaser sample” demonstrates how the band has not only redefined their own sound "again", but may have given birth to a totally new and unheard genre, which they describe as “A Russian underground night club “. Whatever they mean by that is left to be explained at a later time when the EP is released. Blue Movie® is currently working on the video to “”Electric Water” which will accompany the single as well as a new comic based on the band’s new genre, style & members!
A Nuclear Calm
A Nuclear CalmTrack no. 6 A Nuclear Calm from the Delusions in Technicolor EP from Blue movie explores the sounds of Theater and Epic production. The video to the song (produced by Joseph Amandolea) is scheduled for a released date in late August of 2012.
Affluenza1st track from the "Delusions in Technicolor" EP is truly a unique song with a style yet un identifiable by any genre!
Lessons LearnedLesosn's Learned is Track # 2 on the debut release from Blue Movie. This was actually the first song the band wrote when they got together. Original concept was the guitar intro by Tony Paris followed by the drum pattern from Lisa Foerderer. The song was realized the first night Tony, Lisa and Danieala met for a rehearsal to see if they can work together.
On the Loose
On the LooseTrack #3 off the 8MM Lovesongs EP is a remake from the band Saga. Tony Paris brought the idea to the band as one of 2 options from Saga, "On the Loose" and "Wind him up". The girls chose "On the Loose" because the bass line was so identifiable. When PJ joined the band during the 8MM recording sessions, he had his doubts about redoing this song. But as he took a good listen to the re-arranged version that Tony brought to him a week prior to going into the studio, PJ had a change of heart and went in to the 8MM Lovesongs recording sessions dropping the vocals to this song first. Ironically the band still opens most of their shows with "On The Loose"!
Chaos & Order
Chaos & OrderTrack #4 off the 8MM Lovesongs EP by Blue Movie was derived from a 4 second sample Danieala introduced to the band. Tony Paris revised the 4 second sample into an entire song with a breakdown which featured a classical violin arpeggio run. The band almost scrubbed it thinking that it would be impossible to reproduce live. That was quickly remedied when Rick Chiarello joined the band as full member.
Murder Will Out
Murder Will OutFirst song on the debut release from Blue Movie was arranged by Tony Paris while he was playing in IDESPISE before forming Blue Movie. The song originally titled "America" was written by Tony for a soundtrack. When it was decided that the song was "too epic" sounding by the members of IDESPISE it was put on the side until Lisa Foerderer heard it on a demo Tony was playing in the car. Re-arranged with lyrics by Lisa & Daniela and performed by PJ Griffith, the track was renamed and recorded for Blue Movie which quickly found it self as the signature song for the 8MM Lovesongs release.

Sewing ShadowsFrom the 2nd EP release by BLUE MOVIE Sewing Shadows was quickly the fan favorite which lead to the EPIC MUSIC VIDEO for the track which also inspired the next comic "REVELATIONS" which followed in 2013.
