Description

KMFDM's previous album, Xtort, was a corrosive industrial metalfest that burned as deeply as most anything by Ministry or Nine Inch Nails. But fans expecting more gut-pounding, head-smashing euphoria are in for a surprise. The band's self-titled successor is light on the metal, heavy on the electronic--which isn't to say KMFDM are hopping on some Chemical Brothers/Prodigy bandwagon. They were futzing around with samplers and keyboards over a decade ago. It's just that diehard metalheads might find KMFDM's skittering beats and blipping keyboards a little too left-field. But for open-minded souls who like to dance and destroy, KMFDM should prove to be a hedonistic cauldron of carnal delight. --Jon Wiederhorn

  • It's good, dammit!

    Awesome powerful subject matter of Megalomaniac and very cool mechanical sounds. It's killer industrial for anybody.

  • Their very best

    By R.R  Dec 10, 1999

    ### Although the album title is unpronouncable (like what Prince is calling himself these days) it is KMFDM's best album so far . Although at times it straddles the fence between metal and a brutish techno , some of the group's best songs are found withi...n . Stray Bullet (Track #2) is far and away the best , but Leid und Elend (#3) , Spit Sperm (#6) , Anarchy (#7) , and Down and Out (#8 , which contains the nearest vocal equivalent of the title) make good listens for headbangers and college nerds alike . This is , as I have said , KMFDM's best single album to date , and possibly forever , assuming you believe the sticker on the front of their newest album , Adios (the historic "farewell" album ) .

    Leid Und Elend, Spit Sperm and Torture alone are worth buying the cd, but all the other songs are brilliant too... This is the first album I ever bought of KMFDM, and even after owning all the others, this will always be my all tim favorite!!
