Armageddon Dildos - Untergrund
Electro-Industrial, Old School EBM Long time runners Armageddon Dildos is back with their new album 'Untergrund', celebrating 20 years a band. Have they grown old or are they still youthfully explosive?

Well, they fire it all off with an old school tune called "Furios" that have a 80's alike melody that is very catchy, the rest of the track feels a bit generic, but still score some points. However, the absolute top of this album is with the second track, and also the title track, "Untergrund". Dinosaur stomping heavy beats together with a pretentious and almost dragging voice in the verse and everything explodes into an EBM orgy with the chorus. If there's one track you should with you from this release, that?s the one. It will make you mess yourself.

Even though none of the tracks are able to reach up to the title song, you should not turn of your music device just yet. "Blut" have a melody that somehow reminds me of old B-action TV shows from the 80's and "Bodyworker" that is a true dance floor filler.

Still, I'm quite unsure why they have added tracks like "Gottland" that almost has a Rammsteineque feeling to it. It's a cool track, but it makes the album a bit devided. The same goes for "La Passionata", "House of Pain" and "Der Schrei" that do not seem to belong here at all. After "La Passionata", it seems like the album is unable to find its way back.

You know when you are going to get something from the other room, and when you get there, you have no idea what the heck you where suppose to do, so you stand there looking like you just got lobotomized? It's like this album just did that after the 4th track.

Instead, I will listen to 'Untergrund' a couple of more times, and then lay this album to rest.
