KMFDM : WTF? - CD
WTF?!, the band's new album joins the ranks of their many records' titled with a five character name. WTF?! features 11 brand new songs, including the album's lead single Krank', KMFDM's latest anthem. All in all Käpt'n K. and his cadets provide over 50 minutes of guaranteed musical mayhem, conducted, as always, by KMFDM founder, leader and vocalist Sascha K. who believes this is his most powerful and dominate sonic statement to date. KMFDM's female singer, Lucia, proves her vocal prowess on the dreamy yet driving Dystopia and the super-charged revolution-themed rocker Rebels in Kontrol, which has already made news as a protest song in support of Wikileaks. Continuing the band-based formula of recent years, KMFDMers Jules Hodgson, Steve White and Andy Selway round out the roster. It will come as no surprise to followers of KMFDM to learn that WTF?! is laden with contributions from compatriots far and wide. Static-X guitarist Koichi Fukuda can be found shredding on the noisy Come on Go Off. William Wilson of KMFDM Record's Legion Within lends his vocal talent to Spectre. Picking up where Blitz's Strut left off, the disco-fueled Take it like a Man showcases Lucia dueting with Free Dominquez of Kidney Thieves. Sebastian Komor of Komor Kommando and Icon Of Coil's production on multiple tracks as well as input from stray KMFDM member Bill Rieflin top off this impressive list. While this is not their first album title to contain a question mark (that would be their 1986 debut album What Do You Know, Deutschland?) this is the first to feature an exclamation point. Regardless, it was only a matter of time before this happened as few bands make more sloganized exclamations than KMFDM. The WTF?! artwork features a humorously suggestive, yet ultimately destructive cover illustration by KMFDM contributor Brute!, a fitting visual for this sly but brutal release. KMFDM once again gives notice to the mainstream that Whatever you stand for, we do not!', be pre-pared as, It's a f**kin' takeover!'. For those who dare to ask WTF?!, you have been warned, KMFDM take no prisoners!
