KMFDM : Kunst - CD KMFDM : Kunst - CD  Ref: 20885 The front cover depiction of a Russian cross being ‘deconstructed' by a bare-chested female protagonist – with a chainsaw - is no random provocation, but is based on the art performance of the Ukrainian feminist movement FEMEN, who have used this somewhat drastic measure to empathise with the Russian political activist group Pussy Riot, to whom KMFDM have dedicated a song bearing their name on the album. With resistance against authoritarian and religious regimes as its subject matter, this is territory previously mapped out by KMFDM, as the promotion of civil resistance has become one of the prime motivations for the group and their chief protagonists Käpt'n K (Sascha Konietzko) and female vocalist Lucia (Cifarelli) since the dawn of the 1990's. With additional sonic re-enforcement provided by guitarists Steve White and Jules Hodgson, & drummer Andy Selway, KMFDM combine gloriously once again on KUNST in fusing heavy bass grooves, relentless guitar samples with mechanical electronic drums and the notoriously self-referential slogans that have brought them notoriety throughout the industrial and metal scenes in the United States and Europe alike. This winning formula can be heard in full effect on new songs such as ‘Ave Maria', ‘Animal Out' or the anthemic title track. Crosses and chainsaws are not only tied together by alliteration in KMFDM's universe, but also by musical and political deconstruction. Is this KUNST?

See for yourself on the band's extensive 2013 spring tour.
