KMFDM's greatest hits package is quite complete – it includes "Juke Joint Jezebel," "Rip the System!," the Ministry-ish "A Drug Against War," "Light," "Don't Blow Your Top" and "Godlike-Doglike." KMFDM's songs have always spoken about the unspeakable (something Nine Inch Nails and Tool would take even further), and their music and lyrics feed off of each other to create an energetic-yet-squeamish, invigorating-but-uncomfortable sound. To really get an idea how they evolved, though, start with the last track (from their first album) and work forward: their political and social commentary, as well as their emotional intensity, hasn't changed, although their energy level increased in the '90s as industrial exploded.

Electronic, Industrial Rock

Pioneers, philosophers, trailblazers, in short: prophets always have to assemble their flocks abroad before they find due recognition in their homelands. This also applies to the German art form KMFDM. Whether in the US, Japan, Australia or elsewhere (where they sold hundred thousands of records and embarked on various sold out tours) - for over a quarter of a century they are the epitome and synonym for a musical style of the harder variety: Industrial Rock.

"Yeah!" is an upcoming 5-track extended play from German Industrial band KMFDM, slated to be released on June 23rd, 2017. However this project is just a sampling that will drop ahead of their twentieth studio album "Hell Yeah!" which can be expected out sometime in August.

This is a very unique album by KMFDM because it's like they are transitioning into the band that they are today but also delve into different genres like reggae, rap to a certain extent, and there is definitely a punk sensibility to this album. The metal/hard-rock roots also start to become more defined and blended with the industrial/electronic dance sound.

Remix albums, regardless of the band's stature, tend to be very hit or miss with hopefully several good tracks offset by those that simply are not up to par. It can be argued that a good remix is one that incorporates the remixer's sound and style into a song while staying faithful to the spirit of the original. KMFDM have always understood this, and as the Ultra Heavy Beat begins its 24th year, they bring us their first full-length remix album as a companion to their most recent release, Tohuvabohu.

KMFDM announces Krieg - the remix companion album to 2009’s electrifying Blitz. Krieg features 12 tracks, over 55 minutes of new and exciting remixes from some top names across the musical spectrum. Krieg contains remixes of select tracks from Blitz. Blitz featured performances by KMFDM founder Sascha K., along with Lucia Cifarellia, Jules Hodgson, Andy Selway and Steve White, plus the return of past members Tim Skold and Cheryl Wilson.

XTORT doesn't sound markedly different than KMFDM's other releases – there are still the bruising mechanical drum beats and numbingly drilling guitars, combined with barked vocals. What's noticeable about XTORT – their first album since industrial broke into the Top 40 with Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral – is how the band made no concessions to the pop/rock mainstream whatsoever. They are still the same grimy, dank heavy dance band they were in the '80s. For some listeners, that means they're keeping the flame burning and, to a certain extent, they'd be right – KMFDM sounds as good as they ever have, and several tracks rank among their best.

Having built up both their reputation and their increasing musical range over earlier releases, the members of KMFDM brought it all together on the brilliant Naive, one of industrial/electronic body music's key albums and a great blast of entertainment from start to finish. The self-referential qualities evident from earlier songs like "More and Faster" came to the fore with the brief "Welcome," literally doing just that for new listeners, and from there KMFDM does everything from four-to-the-floor beats to Wagnerian epic metal and back again.

Like Ministry, KMFDM has attracted listeners who aren't necessarily big fans of industrial music. Abrasive, noisy and dissonant, Money hardly qualifies as easy listening. But compare this excellent CD to albums by Skinny Puppy and the seminal Throbbing Gristle, and you'll begin to see why Money was considered to be much more accessible by comparison. The aggression of industrial noise is there, but so are elements of heavy metal, Euro-dance music and hip-hop. And the overall results are as infectious as they are unpredictable.
