One of electro-industrial's hardest-working and high-quality producers, Rudy Ratzinger, better known as :wumpscut:, had been a pillar in the scene for quite some time before calling it quits this year. Even so, he's left several truly exceptional works in his wake, including Bunkertor 7. The album is based in electro-industrial, but it dabbles in aggrotech on the harder, faster tracks and even dark electro on some of the quieter songs. The samples are all well-placed and the vocals are as ugly the album cover. It's also got a strong relationship between power and finesse throughout, using restraint when needed and laying on the gas when appropriate. It's clear that it's influenced by the likes of early Skinny Puppy and Leaether Strip, and surely opting for a more conventional sound in-genre, but it's still some of the most consistently great and occasionally brilliant electro-industrial out there. Needless to say, this project and the man behind it definitely deserve more credit.
