Album Review

The “ultra heavy beat” sounds as “ultra” and “heavy” as ever on WTF?!, the 17th studio album by industrial juggernauts KMFDM. Drum machines pound, slogans are chanted, and guitars slash through speakers as they always have, with the only real differences being a tighter, lower bottom end, perhaps influenced by the stadium techno sound favored by the European hardcore crowd. Whatever the source, these newly tuned beats inspire vocalists Sascha Konietzko and Lucia Cifarelli to roar unrestrained, driving home the simple hooks of “Krank” and “Vive la Mort!” with a new lust for life, or better yet, death, as the topics are as dark and desolate as fans require. A big surprise is the disco rave-up “Take It Like a Man,” where Cifarelli forgets what former Wax Trax! band she joined and delivers the quintessential My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult song. It’s a relief or nuisance depending how loyal you are to the original KMFDM aesthetic, but even when purists give it the boot, they’re left with an outstanding blast of dark dancefloor destruction. Put this one on the band’s top shelf.

Customer Reviews

Not the best

Guitar intensive songs are ok but overall there is nothing exceptional about this album. I expect better from KMFDM!

It's about time.

FINALLY. I've been so disgusted with a lot of the KMFDM releases in the last decade, and you know, I think it's safe to say that we have, at last, got a release worth getting from 'em. It kind of has a vibe going back to the old days of Naive or Symbols, even. Delicious.

Surprisingly, really good

I'll admit, i didn't much care for the last 3 albums KMFDM have made, but this album is great, a bit more reminiscent of their late 90's early 2000's material. Only thing thats missing in the KMFDM formula is En Esch and Raymond Watts otherwise Sacha is doing a great job keeping the band alive, even if the last few albums were not too strong. Man almost 30 years soon...

Genre: Electronic

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

Such industrial alt-metal outfits as Nine Inch Nails and Ministry received the lion's share of press and commercial success during the '90s, but a handful of other bands slugged it out for just as long (or much longer), including KMFDM. The band's name has been the subject of countless debates among fans over the years as to what it stands for (their record company even went as far as holding a contest in 1994 for fans to submit possible meanings, resulting in more than 1,000 entries), but the confirmed...
