Das Ich - Anti'Christ
Electronics, Industrial Das Ich knows the art of painting doomsday into music. Ackermann's voice is perfect with the dark complaining melody and together with a strong loop they create a very good sound. There are big battlefields, it is chaos, it is purgatory and it's the last judgement, all in the same powerful package. Antichrist is no exception, more a perfect example to prove Das Isch's music.

The album starts off with the track "Engel" and the chorus is one of those that you get hung up on and hum on all the day. The third track "Grund Der Seele" offers a very simple structured chorus where Ackermann partly shouts "Fleisch, Blut", but instead of appearing like a bad chorus it increases the mood together with the dark melody. "Krieg im Paradies" also has a strong chorus that you willingly sing (shouts?) while you're listening to the song. I hope that VNV Nation will notice the track "Dark Dunkle Land" so that they can make a club remix just like they did with "Destillat". This will not be anything other than a dance floor classic. With or without club remix this is probably the strongest track on the album.

If doomsday will come I'm going to put out great speakers and play Das Ich's Anti'christ on highest volume.
