Hau Ruck |Metropolis Records, 2005|

Free Your Hate, Hau Ruck, You're No Good, New American Century, Real Thing, Every Day's A Good Day, Mini Mini Mini, Professional Killer, Feed Our Fame, Ready To Blow, Auf Wiederseh'n

After 21 years of the music activity KMFDM have released the best album in their career. The same people leading by a charismatic Sascha and supported by tempting Lucia return to us in a very good condition. They moved from Sanctuary to Metropolis (gathering mostly electronic bands to mention Front Line Assembly, Numb, Out Out, Noise Unit, Juno Reactor, Decree, Haujobb, Halo Gen or Gridlock). Industrial rock is not dead yet as we can hear at this album.

The dynamics knocks out and almost every song. 'Free Your Hate' seems to be a 100% successful song on the dancefloors around the world. Next - 'Hau Ruck' sticks in a memory quickly because of the nice samples and good guitar riffs. Another fusion of guitars and electronics comes in You're No Good spiced with Lucia's sexy voice.

Next comes New American Century, my personal hit on the whole album. The song is typical for KMFDM ventures but enriched with lots of intriguing samples. Lucia temptates again in 'Real Thing' song which reminds me the vibe of Sister Machine Gun or Machines of Loving Grace. 'Every Day's A Good Day'.... (to die), it's a song with an aggressive voices but I'm not convinced if it's cool. Mini Mini Mini - I was looking for the lyrics and found something written in French. I thought it was a French translation but it's the original text with the heavy and monotone sound. However it's catchy a lot!

Then we get Professional Killer which is a really killing song suitable for a fast car drive or a hot dancefloor. 'Ready To Blow' it's another example of well composed song and the other hit on the album. The last song is heavy and sang in German language what adds even heavier vibe to it. To sum up, it's a pleasure to write a review for such a good record like Hau Ruck is. What's more it contains all the features to become a cult album in KMFDM discography.
