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.

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.

Metropolis Records is proud to announce the release of KMFDM?s classic back catalog. These long out of print masterpieces from the band?s Wax Trax! Records era will be made available in the order in which they were originally released. Each album has been digitally remastered, presenting these timeless songs in a quality previously unavailable.

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.

Due to copyright problems with samples used on the original version of KMFDM's 1990 album Naive, the album was taken out of circulation shortly after its release. It was reissued in 1994 as Naive/Hell to Go, with the offending samples deleted and several of the tracks remixed. If you've got the original, with the orange cover art, you're lucky – it is rare and highly sought after. Even still, this version of Naive (with green cover art) is worth having, thanks to its radical recasting of "Virus," "Godlike," and "Leibesleid." ~Allmusic

KMFDM's final album starts out with a bitter goodbye on the title track, and the usual mechanical sonic assault continues on tracks like "Witness," the Kraftwerk-inspired "R.U.OK?," and "Full Worm Garden." Some songs are more club/dance than industrial; "Today" depicts a calmer eye before "Rubicon" and "Bereit" resume the high energy and aggressive stormy ambience that are the band's trademark. KMFDM sound smoother yet maintain their emotive mayhem in all its glory. ~Allmusic

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.

The second volume of KMFDM’s singles/rarities series, Extra, presents early 1990s tracks by the renowned German industrial-rock act. Highlights include multiple versions of the pulsing “Help Us/Save Us/Take Us Away” (from 1992’s Money) and various mixes of the scathing “Light” (from ‘93’s Angst). For KMFDM diehards, this is a welcome way to help complete the band’s extensive catalogue. ~Allmusic
