Product Description

Never one to shy away from asking the tough questions,
KMFDM gives voice to the inquiry on everyone s lips in
these twisted times WTF?! The band s new album,
released on Metropolis Records, joins the ranks of their
many records titled with a five-character name.

WTF?! features 11 brand new songs, including the
album s lead single Krank. It will come as no surprise
to followers of KMFDM to learn that WTF?! is laden
with contributions from Kompatriots far and wide.
Static-X guitarist Koichi Fukuda can be found shredding
on the noisy Come On Go Off. William Wilson of
KMFDM Record s Legion Within lends his vocal talent
to Spectre. Picking up where Blitz s Strut left off,
the disco-fueled Take It Like A Man showcases Lucia
duetting with Free of Coil s production on multiple tracks.
And finally, input from stray KMFDM member Bill Rieflin
tops off this impressive list.

Customer Reviews

A great addition to the huge KMFDM catalog and one sure to please any fan, old and new.
Chris Windham
For those unaware of this band's style, think industrial rock, with electronics, male and female vocals, and great production.
R. Salisbury
The main drawback of the album is just pacing and weight in the first half--that's a good problem in the scheme of things.

After a week of listening I'm ready to give my evaluation. With WTF, KMFDM's seventeeth album proper and almost ten years into their reformation the group has finally made an album that holds its weight with the benchmark 90's releases to which new albums are always compared. Lucia's contributions on this album have an integral element to the songs that we haven't heard before. This is important as many fans have felt her focal songs don't fit the band's aesthetic. On this album her commonly fan-derided presence is better fitting to my ears and its clear here that she's given a lot of effort to these proceedings. Compared to the last few efforts there's less chance of getting sick of her voice on every track.

Now I've been reading lots of complaints about the flow of this album and don't really hear what people are complaining about. Almost every KMFDM album takes a shift in tone after the first few tracks and WTF?! is no exception yet unlike the shattered momentum often found on recent efforts this one sustains an adrenalized energy for almost half an hour before settling down into calmer territories. The first four songs have an urgency not heard since 1996's Xtort, using the formulas we've come to expect while experimenting with sounds both familiar and new to the KMFDM sound palette. The overall tone is consistently gritty with an emphasis on intricately programmed beats, samples and synth. Maybe KMFDM aren't the band to go to for mood music but on WTF!? there's a real undercurrent of foreboding atmosphere that hasn't been heard from this band in ages.

Opener "Krank" is the self-referential cut we've all come to expect and this version lets the parts of the song expand and breathe unlike the cluttered and abridged single/video edit released earlier this year.

I feel like KMFDM has entered a holding pattern since Hau Ruck and is mostly reproducing the same sound over and over again, with only a handful of distinguishable variations on the theme (e.g. "People of the Lie" on Blitz). KMFDM has always had a signature sound, but it has shifted in the last decade or so and, in my opinion, has narrowed quite a lot and become even more formulaic. WTF sounds pretty much like another permutation of the sounds on Blitz and Tohuvabohu. The tracks don't stick in my head and the album is ultimately forgettable. It's good--hence the 3 stars--but forgettable.

The current band lineup just doesn't have the spark that made so many great albums in the 80s, 90s, and early 00s. And its not Lucia--amazing to see how many people unfairly single her out in comments for adding a "pop" sound. "Real Thing" and "Professional Killer" were awesome tracks on Hau Ruck and her influence on the band's sound has been great. The band itself just needs a few more creative minds contributing.

Again, its not a bad album. Just nothing new or all that interesting.

I'd fallen out of touch with KMFDM after MDFMK. The single "Krank" was the first thing I'd bought by them since the "Boots" single. I instantly dug "Krank" and it's classic dance beats, guitars and shouted slogans that made me fall in love with KMFDM way back in the "More And Faster" days.

I approached WTF?! with a great deal of anticipation and fortunately I was not let down. It has been a constant companion since I downloaded it yesterday and I suspect I'll still be grooving and working out to it weeks and years to come. After Cut Copy's new album, this is the only other album I've truly fallen in love with in 2011.

Every cut here is solid. "Rebels in Kontrol" "Take It Like A Man" "Spectre" and "Amnesia" are my initial favorites. Especially "Amnesia" it is a barn-stormer of a dance cut that fills my ears with joy!

Lucia slays here and I'm really happy she joined up. Sascha has better control over his voice than he ever did in the old days and they've kept up with the times in concerns to big sounding EBM synths and drums. I strongly recommend this album!

So here we are in a new decade, and its no surprise that KMFDM are still going full throttle, with quite a prolific discography even in the last ten years. I won't even get into what members make the best version of the band as I appreciate all their albums from every era. If you had to ask me my favorite era though, I think I would have to say from Tohovabohu to present. Sascha's flirtation with purely analog synthesizers in the last several years has led to some of their biggest, most full sounding songs.

Now a lot of people really didn't like Blitz and I'm still trying to figure that out. I think that album is one of the best things they've ever done, right up there with Angst and Symbols. It was very pop in a lot of ways, but there is no denying the fat synth sounds, melodies, and Sascha's best vocal delivery to date.

WTF continues in the same vein, but WAY darker. In fact, if I had to characterize the sound of this album that's what I would say: Blitz but darker. This album re-confirms that Sascha is not only a powerful frontman, but also one of the best synth players on the planet. Unlike WWIII where the guitars dominated everything, the synths are what make WTF soooo good. Amazing throbbing, blipping, beeping, sweeping full sounding keyboards that you will never get out of your head. The arrangements are tight and interesting. You'll never find another modern industrial act making electronic music like this now or ever. This year's "Strut" is indeed Take It Like A Man featuring (former?) Kidney Thieves frontwoman Free Dominguez. Her duet with Lucia is just addicting and puts to shame modern carbon copy acts like Lady Gagme and the like. This is pop done right. My other favorite's are Spectre (with unique vocals from William Wilson) and Amnesia.
