Album Review

The first in a series of retrospective compilations from the band’s Rustblade label, Sinister Whisperz revisits My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult’s early years by way of the remix. All cuts were originally released on the vanguard industrial label Wax Trax! and come from the band’s most beloved era, so it’s a welcome surprise that they’re treated with respect, especially when this Kult is known for fully embracing both trash and exploitation. Industrial dancefloor great “And This Is What the Devil Does” gets its bass pumped and its punch increased, while unexpected highlight “Burning Dirt” is retooled with a hypnotic middle that recalls industrial dance music when it was pre-darkwave and more trance-inducing. “Kooler Than Jesus” is funked-up disco from hell in this “AC/DC Dog Mix,” and you can hear the Euro-dance influence in “Leathersex” better than before as its Giorgio Moroder-like sequencer gets pushed to the front. Although the heavy bass and increased compression would have sounded alien back in the day, Sinister Whisperz otherwise comes off as an early-‘90s effort from the Kult that fell through the cracks. Old-school fans will be delighted.

Classics get a boob job!

Great mix from the early era of TKK! The songs are remixed more in the sense of single edits/extended mixes as opposed to all out club assaults. As someone who knows the originals well it was really exciting to hear these songs reworked, and with a slick remastering job! The selection is nearly flawless, the only head scratcher being the inclusion of "Leathersex". Although it may technically be a WaxTrax song it's kind of a sore thumb on an otherwise great album. Personally, I would have went for "X-Communication" or even "Waiting For Mommie" instead. "Satana Rising" (I've heard both that it's new and it's an outtake) works ok as a bonus but not essential. All in all 5 stars and totally worth 10 bucks.

The Golden Era.

While most fans will say that the "Sexplosion" era was their best, I believe this era was the golden age for the Kult. Sinister Whisperz comes as a breath of fresh air to me from all their sex related albums. This is not just a remastered version of the old hits either, the Kult reworked all of these songs from the ground up. Its kind of showing us how these songs would sound like if they were written today instead of back in the wax trax era. All of the track are fine reworking of the old hits and are sure to delight fans of the Kult. The last song Satana Rising is the Kults newest song and proves they still have that old magic that made they fun to listen to in the first place. I hope they keep with the direction of Satana Rising, I would like to see them go back to the satanic spiritual style of music they had.

Like a slick sexy switchblade...

These tunes are just plain classics - they defined the sinister, yet tongue-in-cheek, nature of the electro-goth-industrial wave of the 80's. These songs were (IMNSHO) the cream of their crop, and this retooling of them does them justice .. purists may wince at the "danceishness" of the arrangements, but it actually fits quite well with their sardonic nature. More from Rustblade, please!

Biography

Formed: 1987 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Although White Zombie received most of the credit for mixing tales of sex, Satan, and gore with a rock/dance beat (although admittedly with more of a heavy metal edge), Chicago's My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult specialized in similar territory for just as long. Originally formed in 1987 by Buzz McCoy (who had recently relocated from Boston) and Groovie Mann, the duo sought to create a worthy musical accompaniment that could be used as a soundtrack to trashy B-movies. The duo's initial project was...
