Swedish EBM... It's almost a trademark for quality, like Belgian chocolat. So if you hear that a Swedish band is releasing an EBM-album you can almost buy it with your eyes closed.
And, after all the single-track releases during the Covid-period (yeah well, Bandcamp makes it easy for a band to release a track without a full album), I can finally give a full track album a listen.
Tukt themselves call it 'a chaotic mix of frustration, disappointment and anger' and that is really what it is. I hear EBM combined with some synthpop sounds and industrial tracks... I hear Front 242 and Nine Inch Nails... I hear great 4x4 stomping away... It's hard to find a line throughout the album (if there is one?), but who needs a line when you have a great stomping album to kick the weekend off!
Yes, it is chaotic...
Yes, they sound angry
Yes, you should check them out
Yes... just Yes...
