Editorial Reviews

Ghost & Writer, the musical lovechild of Frank M. Spinath (Seabound/Edge Of Dawn) and Jimmyjoe Snark III (The Weathermen) return with Red Flags. Ghost & Writer present music and melodies and lyrics that cut through you like a knife and leave you bleeding from the heart. As with Shipwrecks, Red Flags comes with 8 original tracks and 8 remixes.

Other than vocal contributions from wifey Lucia, goth rocker and former Seattle cohort William Wilson, newbie Swedes Morlocks, and guitars by long-time collaborator Jules, Sascha takes full reigns on Kunst, which is fine by me because he is, and always will be the heart of this band. Kunst finds KMFDM continuing in what I feel is a streak of superior albums (from Tohuvabohu to present), with quality electro-industrial rockers and club stompers. I remain beyond impressed with Sascha's knack for frenzied songwriting.

While not as experimental as pre-MDFMK records, Kunst is still nonetheless solid. I still think WTF! is an overall better album, but Kunst has an overall groove that harkens to their Money days, while synthpunk numbers like Pseudocide reminds me of Drug Against War in it's delivery. Furthermore, this time around it seems Sascha has switched whatever type of drum programming he uses as on here the beats don't BLAST you over the head - they feel vintage, but still deep and hard. The guitars are also not as up front, giving the synth and bass some room to breathe. The synths themselves are also lovely and vintage sounding (Sascha said long ago that he preferred analog synths and triggers). As a fan of Legion Within, I really dig Next Big Thing and think William Wilson's Peter Murphy -esque vocals work incredibly well with KMFDM's music and gives it a darker flavor. It's one of the fastest songs on the album. The Mess You Made features vocals and some instrumentation from Swedish group Morlocks, that Sascha took a liking to recently. Definitely the most unique song on the album and my second favorite. Other highlights are the catchy I Heart Not, Pussy Riot, and Pseudocide - which takes the cake for me. My least favorite is actually the title track.

I'm going to be honest, I haven't really enjoyed a KMFDM album since WWIII, which I only kind of liked, but KUNST is actually pretty decent. None of the songs drag and each is diversified. The album has a pretty good flow and range. And the ultra-heavy beat is featured prominently and appropriately on this album, more so then the past couple of release which weren't really my cup of tea. Parts of KUNST are very symbols-esque which is very welcome as far as I'm concerned.

Now if you are a brand new KMFDM fan reading this, I would suggest you go buy Symbols, Nihil and Angst before getting anything else. And if you are a long time KMFDM fan, I would recommend adding KUNST to your collection.

This album is amazing, I love it. Having seen some of the tracks performed live recently just gives it that extra kick when listening. If you're lusting for the ultra heavy beat... buy the album and support Sascha.

I've been a longtime fan of KMFDM, from about the early 90's until present.
And, as any longtime fan of KMFDM will gladly admit... KMFDM can often be gratingly self-promoting. These past few albums have felt very hollow to me and the self-promotion has become increasingly prevalent and noticable. I just can't help but wonder if he's run out of ideas... Heck, they brag in the song that they've been doing this for 29 years and talk about continuity... WTH is this, a KMFDM commercial? Give me a break.

I also really don't like that Lucia's taken center stage. (Lucia was, by the way, hot and amazing in her solo act 'Drill') A song in recent memory "Strut" is a deplorable and disgusting song that is divergent from anything they've ever done... basically Captain K got whipped into putting a "GIRL POWER" song on his album. The trend continues with P*ssy Riot.... terrible song on this album, and one of the biggest dumps I've ever heard from a band that I really liked.

That being said, there have been a couple really really awesome tracks over the past couple albums. Generally speaking, I can always find 1 really good one. Not so in this one.

The very first song is an unimaginative piece of garbage. All Sascha does is say the names of a ton of songs KMFDM previously released, along with mocking the wrongly-interpreted meaning to their name (Kill Mthr Fkn Depeche Mode) and has largely recycled beats throughout.

They've been so horrible lately that I often question how much I liked them to begin with... I think of albums like NIHIL, Money, Symbols, Angst, Naive.... heck ADIOS was even passable (marginally). I could even hang with the MDFMK, if only for Torpedoes and Witch Hunt.

I've been a KMFDM fan for years and have always looked forward to each release. But this one is just more of the same, no new material here, nothing new. Same old rants, same old complaints, same band apparently split between two countries. Little promotion from the band, it's just product. If you have to choose between this release and something else, like lunch. Go for the lunch, it will leave a better taste in your mouth. One play and on the shelve.

KMFDM is going back to their roots with this one. They've finally put aside their nauseating attempt to be a heavy, thrasher band and went back to being a band that's sick, but has some class, since it's only got respect when it's kicking--well, you know the rest!

They nod in the direction of a lot of their older music, but give a new flare to it. It's very danceable and rhythmically innovative in a way that we haven't seen since the days of Naive. I'm not sure I'd recommend this to new fans, but I definitely would to old-time fans. If you like their stuff from the beginning, if you think WWIII and Hau Ruck are their worst albums, and if you're a fan of song-writing rather than angry grunge and guitar riffs, then you'll like this album. If you're offended by female vocalists or are embarrassed of a metal band waxing sexy, then stay away from this album--and don't talk to me either,while you're at it ;)
