Blitzmaschine - Faustrecht
Old School EBM The Old School EBM scene is a bit overcrowded to say at least. I think that probably every fourth person in the world had some sort of Old School project and therefore the overall quality is pretty low. That means you need to be something special and deliver well produced, high quality and well planned songs. Will Blitzmaschine deliver in their second album called 'Faustrecht'.

Actually, they do. For you that have not heard Blitzmaschine before, like me before I got this release, they range from more monotone industrial Old School like Ionic Vision to a bit modernized like Spetsnaz.

Highlights of the album are "Swallow Me", "Love and Pain", "Propaganda", "Kämpfe Um Mich", "Do Not", "Blondes Mädchen", "Heartbreaker" and the very Spetsnaz'esk "Useless Pain" that is easily the best track on the album. A real dancefloor stomper.

Even though I can't say that I feel that Blitzmachine is exploring new grounds in any way, they have picked their influences right and does something of high quality. That's what it is all about, give the buyers quality for their money.

All and all, this is one of the best Old School albums so far this year and if you are a fan of Nitzer Ebb, Spetsnaz, Sturm Café and Ionic Vision, this is something for you.
