Kuhlmann! The men in their prime age playing straight, powerful NDH with really great deep bass-bariton voice. I’m pretty sure , you will fall in love with that voice from the first listening! And soon you will have a great opportunity, while Kuhlmann have just announced their new single “Das Haus”. The song is going to be released next Friday, October, 22nd along with new video.
Ridiculous pink elephant on the cover, vaguely familiar song title… Wait! This is second official Nebelhaus single “Ding Dong Song” is going to be released this Friday! If the song title itself means nothing to you, then you will surely recognize it by the first line: “uh, you touch my tra la la…”. Yeah, Nebelhaus made a cover of Swedish singer Günther.
I don’t know if the collaboration with Harms influenced the band so much, but comparing this record with their debut album, one can argue that this is a completely different level. This applies not only to the sound itself that has become more saturated, more spatial, brighter, with a thick rhythm-guitar tone and a ringing and clear rhythm section, but, more importantly, to the quality of songwriting in general. The new Kaizer album sounds more sophisticated in every way; male and female vocals match more organically, the guitar riffs are either not as primitive as in the debut album, or are played together with keys and drums so that it is impossible to doubt their relevance; melodies stick to your memory even before the last chord of the song is played. By the way, here I would like to emphasize the hit potential of the record.
I have learned about Nebelhaus just recently. Probably a couple of months ago, after listening to their first demo with vocals called “Aderlass” (we will come back to their demos a bit later). And then this project became one of my favorites among the bands from the new generation of NDH. You might object to that by saying that Nebelhaus is another clone of Rammstein, here we go again and why should one be interested in this band? But I have something to object to that. To understand what Nebelhaus is and why it sounds like that, you need to understand how it all started.
The main problem when writing a review on Lord Of The Lost’s new album was to choose the narrative form. I really like Harms’s creativity, professionalism, and the pedantry of his approach to the composing, performance and presentation of the material, and after listening to the new release I was so much itching to write a maximally complete song-by-song review … But the thing is that for you to familiarize yourself with all of the LOTL’ new material from beginning to end, including the “Judas” album itself and the bonuses to it, you will have to listen to 70 tracks with a total duration of more than four and a half hours. Yeah, no kidding. Some other artists can hardly count such a lot of material in their entire career, but Harms and Co. just up and release an album in such a format. That’s crazy! I never cease to admire this man’s talent and productivity.
The second full-length album of a young Mexican band called Eggvn has relatively recently been released and could go unnoticed by the fans of the style of Dark electro/Industrial due to the little popularity of this duet within topic circles. But things can be fixed because Eggvn have everything to become a really prominent band on the Dark Scene and not someday but right now.
It seems that me myself got to know the band in 2019 when I listened to their debut album called “Solve Et Coagula”. At that time the record produced a positive impression on me but didn`t stay in my playlist for long. The material written for “Solve et Coagula” album was a rather powerful combination of Dark Electro and Industrial Rock, distorted up the wazoo. Besides that, it seemed to me that the record lacked some bright moments, catchy bangers and changes in rhythmic patterns. Nevertheless, this debut album was undoubtedly a solid one and defined the sound concept of the band. And now, a few years later, the second album of the band called “La Era de la Bestia” that will be discussed below, was released.
