i miss No Meat No Man
Yeah I'm not digging this in the slightest.
If they could somehow make this sound like Nihil (amazingly catchy choruses, fun instrumentation), then that'd be great. Doesn't look so good as of now though......
More of the same new KMFDM... there's always Angst.
Digging: Conjurer - I
More half-assed nothingy digital shit. God damn it I miss the 90s.
Digging: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - I See a Darkness
Naive... Money... Angst... Nihil... Xtort... Symbols... talk about an awesome run
I just listened to the preview and the album is not as varied as WTF?!. Still, they make solid records even if they're constantly repeating themselves most of the times.
Digging: Chevelle - The North Corridor
But if they've been making the same record for the last decade, what's the point in even picking up the latest one? Worst case of diminishing returns I've ever come across
They're just giving the fans new material to listen to, even if it's usually more of the same. I'm happy to hear new stuff because it's solid.(WTF?! and Blitz are more enjoyable and less formulaic than usual IMO). Anyway, at one point you grow tired of the same 4 or 5 records that defined their style. They could've gone a lot worse (see Ministry's latest release).
I liked Attak, didn't like WWIII, didn't like Hau Ruck, liked Tohuvabohu, didn't like Blitz, liked WTF?!... and when I say "liked" I mean I could swallow it as y'know, mediocre KMFDM. I'd really rather they had a massive overhaul and changed style/members/got En Esch and Guenter Schulz back... their band Slick Idiot is way better than KMFDM 2.0.
Or just broke up, I gotta say
Yeah, bringing En Esch and Gunther Schulz back would make at least an amazing record. I haven't listened to Slick Idiot, I don't know why, but I'll check them out.
Just wrote my soundoff for their 2009 album "Sucksess." I don't think it's even on Youtube... might have to upload it myself. It's great!
Yep this is the only thing on Youtube from that album, a pretty good track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9T1vzhqGQ0
It's not very different from KMFDM, but it has that power that fueled albums like Angst, Nihil or XTORT. It's cool. You should review their stuff, because there aren't many people aware of them on Sputnik.
Nah not radically different from KMFDM, but it's the half of KMFDM's sound I prefer.
Yeah I will, there's a lot of artists I dig that don't have reviews... I've even had to add some albums to the database myself!
They will never bee as good unless they bring back the Nihil lineup. And we all know that is never going to happen.
also, I actually rather liked the first single they relsead for this album, but this song is awfuly meh.
I didn't, such a rehash of Inane and Megalomaniac holy shit
don't forget D.I.Y too lol
Yeah, god damn it they need some new ideas... been jamming Slick Idiot's debut, so much better than any KMFDM since Adios
Right im gonna go check out Slick Idiot.
Their debut is on Spotify and quite a lot of it is on Youtube, their sophomore which I may prefer is nowhere to be found... it's En Esch and Guenter Schulz! The coolest members
Here's a pretty rad track from their debut: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KR-1mCD_48
these guys still exist?????
It sounds very electronic oriented. Blips and blops all over the place.
KMFDM with blips and blops can be awesome (look at Symbols goddamn), but this blows.
that album art gives me a boner
Digging: Bulldozer - The final separation
Yeah at least Aidan Hughes still produces sweet artwork, I'm friends with him on Facebook lolol
I like how they keep the same format for the covers. Collecting their CDs must look great.
Their CDs and LPs look great in a wee row yessir
