Artist: Standgericht (@)
Title: Achtung Disko
Format: CD
Label: SkullLine (@)
Distributor: SkullLine
Rated: *****
Although using several German words and names, here comes a release of a UK-based duo now signed to the German mail order service SkullLine. STANDGERICHT offer us a very rhythmically oriented piece of electronic music, they like to integrate old-school EBM ideas with classic Powernoise/Industrial-driven percussive elements. Almost every track on this album moves merciless forward with a strong "Alle Gegen Alle"-EBM-attitude, accomplished with some voice-samples and multiple rhythm pattern programmings. Of course, an obvious inspiration by some militaristic works and impressions documented through several marching beats, sirens, explosion or orders of drill instructors get several insertions too. Here and there it sounds a bit like if early DIVE would meet LAIBACH for a jam session after having consumed some drugs ("Recycled Life"). A small doze of humor is featured as well with the track "We Steal Die Ananas" – although dangerous to rely and sample a legend like a;GRUMH... Please note also the pure EBM-like hidden bonus track. This album means pure entertainment if you have a heart for some retro and veteran-like stuff. Since also this item will be strictly limited, I like to advise to hurry up to purchase it directly from the source.
