KMFDM is a duo making Industrial music for many years. For decades they been finding their audience with their danceable tunes. This year they release the album “Hyëna” which is their 22nd studio release.
What I like about KMFDM is their diversity. Many instruments are used, many styles are blend in. Sometimes an epically long guitar part that is putting some smile on the faces of the guitardriven musiclovers and at other points you hear some hiphop influences sneak in. All this on a typical KMFDM base of course.
“Dejà vu” is one that has a start with some yodeling at the start and goes much more bombastic later. The duo knows how to bring their chaos. When they have a mockery with a wink going on at “DELUDED DESPERATE DANGEROUS _ DUMB” I cannot suppress a smile on my face. The song seem to summarize the whole feel of the album.
It is really not that hard to understand why this band is on the top ranks of their genre for so long. This is much more advanced and comprehensive than various others and with many years in the pocket they know exactly where to put the balance in their absurd choices in influences. Not your everyday piece of cake and therefore so refreshing and a guaranteed factor in putting up your party mood!
