Artist: HAnzel Und Gretyl
Title: Uber Alles (Above Everything)
Format: CD
Label: Metropolis Records
Distributor: Metropolis Records
This one frightened me in the beginning with "Overture", with the Nazi parade samples and Hitler speeches in the back. SKIP! The band is probably not fascist, but this one seems in some sense to push Nazism too far to the forefront. I doubt it, but still... ..Anywho, the CD as a whole seems very metal oriented, a far jump from their debut CD years back. I didn’t enjoy their debut all to much, but like many CDs from that time, if I listened to it now I’d probably enjoy it. Taste gathers over time you know! The Cd reminds me a good deal of "Herzeleicht" era Rammstein, a nice blast of industrial metal goodness, with some dance elements spruced in between. Their rage factor has also picked up, as well as the German songs. And no need to fear, non-Deutschsprechers, the German is kept very simple and anthemic, it’s not Das Ich’s complex German for sure. Good for fans of Rammstein and Oomph!, and for those just looking for a nice continuation to the German agro scene as of late. Rating: 9. Out May 20th by the way. I’m sure if you talk to the distributors nicely they may sell you copy sooner, or just talk to Music Nonstop about it.
