20 years ago no-one would imagine, expect or accept a genre like this
new one (Electro-Gore-Grind), now the times have changed a little and
so we'll have to add a new branch of music connecting the extreme propagations
of techno and metal respectively.
Imagine a mix of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Fear Factory, Berzerker, latest
Electrocution, Addiction hybridized with Gabber, Grind vocals or piggy
and effected, and finally intros in German or English (top-notch the
one at the beginning of "Gupp"). Hard to figure? I
know very well, as I myself have never met before anyone dealing with
so special a style.
Besides that, the band's look is genuinely crazy (take Hawaian shirts,
two dildos covering the singer's ears, Carnival or Village People clothes)
and add the orgy of sounds which's unleashed during their shows; as
though it weren't enough their lyrics and titles are all but politically
The main problem is that they tend to be a bit repetitive, even if I
appreciate the effort to bring forward the try begun so many years before
by avantgardistic Pungent Stench.
As to the the higlights, "Logorrhoe", "Six
Millions Ways to Fly", "Giggly Geriatric Gipsy Gigolo",
"Tandra Tantrum Temporizer" (in which a didgeridoo
appears) and the short "Adolfart"; these cocaine-intoxicated
live beasts' debut CD also includes 3 cover versions: the greatly performed
"Disgusting Corpse Dissection", originally written
by Gut, Bowel Stew's "Bizarre Ovine Gang Bang", the
funny rendering of "Wo geht's lang Peter Punk?" by
Trio and a remix of "Gott ist Tod /Kain & Abel",
whose primal lyrics and vocals come from Das Ich.
They haven't revolutioned my listen list, I won't take them seriously
as they themselves don't want to; would you if you learned that an ex-member
got lost in the 'pagan forests' of Hunsrück and singer QNZ got popular
with several Speedcore/digital Grind projects and one, Worms of Lucifugus,
playing drumbeat comedy Black metal? However, if they don't cost too
much I guarantee you I'll call them to play at my next birthday's celebration
or at my degree party.
And you thought that Gore-Grind was not danceable?...
