New KMFDM album stream
2013-02-21 by Raul Stanciu STAFF | 13 Comments
KMFDM premiered an official stream of their latest record. Kunst, via Revolver Magazine. The band's 18th studio effort is due out on February 26.

Regarding the inspiration during the creative process, Sascha Konietzko said “Inspiration is everywhere. Unless one lives in a sequestered environment, the bombardment of inspiration is inescapable. KUNST, like every other KMFDM album to this point, is in a way both a mirror of what inspired us during the process of writing and composing it, as well as a snapshot of where the band was in it’s own timeline. Even though the direct translation of the german word ‘Kunst’ is ‘art’, ‘Kunst’ has a broader meaning for Germans, and Europeans in general, than ‘art’ has for native English speakers. Especially since the early 20th century, art has been politically instrumentalized, for example in propaganda of ultra-right and hard-left movements. Many ‘degenerate’ artists have been sent to concentration camps to be systematically murdered under the Nazi-terror regime, sent to labor, starve, and die in the Siberian GULAG under Stalin, as well as, most recently, imprisoned in Putin’s Russia. Art, and KUNST, are closely tied to aspects of danger, of upheaval and underground rumblings.”

Great album. Easily their best since the early nineties. This and their last one were good -- glad to see they're making an effort again.

I've never been a fan, but I'll give it a go and see what happens. Perhaps it'll be one of the two industrial albums I'll dig this year (I like roughly that much industrial each year).

Cool to hear that this is more of a return to form, I've not heard anything in this vein for some time.

"Easily their best since the early nineties."

Better than Nihil, XTORT and Symbols? Yeah I kinda doubt that

It's heavier and it has a lot of energy. It's cool. I'm hoping it will grow on me the way WTF!? did.
