Warning! 8-bit attack! Or: What happens if an unspeakable guitar-riff smashes a Commodore 64? When in singing growlings and screamings hunt the clean parts? If a band leads Industrial-Rock to new horizons?
all:my:faults are back again! Precisely one year ago their successful album “neo.NøiR” (more than 100,000 downloads) cleared the way on which they go on now obliviously. It is a new way – somewhere between ‘Ministry’ and ‘Enter Shikari’, passing the ‘Deathstars’ and ‘Front Line Assembly’. And this sounds phase-wise, as if Trent Reznor got on Welle:Erdball. Above all, however, it sounds like the most thrilling German Industrial rock band.
This lies, on the one hand, with the special style mix and independent song structures and on the other hand with the variable song and polished Lyrics. Leadsinger Steve:Kiai has something to say and he does: Where he decluttered love lives on “neo.NøiR”, society and mass media are now on the plate – mercilessly devoured in “Taste these forbidden fruits”.
”Vergiftet” is a Kleingeldprinzessin-coversong. And this loan from the Berlin singer-songwriter’s scene is not the only proof that all:my:faults have stripped all blinders: Their “8-bit Industrial Metal” is post-modern music in perfection and belongs to the most unusual the scene offers. It’s the needle in a haystack, which one has been searched up to now between Metal, Industrial and Electro for pop in vain. A Nine-Inch-needle which even in the biggest stable stings itself in the eye.
“first.aid.killed.the.jerboa” contains only two songs – but they have it in themselves. They are metallic Postcore monsters in an 8-bit garment. They are adrenalin for the scene and appetizer for the new album. The follower from “neo.NøiR” is champing at the bit. And bares the teeth.
- Taste these forbidden fruits and they’ll do you much worse than just throwing you out of paradise
