15/01/2013, Didier BECU

After the quite succesful We Are Kant Kino, You Are Not, these Norwegians strike back with a second album and it's more than just any EBM-album. Some of our readers might know them from their great versions from both Black Celebration or the genius cover they've done of Nothing's Impossible by Depeche Mode. And saying this, the sound of this duo is immediately described.

Their music is old school EBM (added with some harsh-influences), but with plenty of melancholic atmospheres. It's clear that Kenneth and Lars love the new wave from the 80's when you listen to their version of Warm Leatherette, featuring Claus Larsen of Leather Strip. Not that much of a surprise, as the mastermind from Leather Strip produced the whole album.

Most of the songs are easy to digest, but the most bizarre one is Ich liebe Katarina Witt though.

As it's always the case with Alfa-Matrix this album is delivered in a two disc-edition containg one cd full of mixes.

If they say EBM can't be original these days, just give 'em a copy of this. Beautiful, moody, danceable, in strict tempo, harsh sounds...almost perfect, not?
