Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels Daheim - Die Legende Vom Heiligen Trinker
Industrial, Dark Ambient This German duo whose name translates to Fine Drinkers at Pinkel's Home is also a duo that I have never heard of before up until now. They are a dark ambient and industrial band and their latest album is named after The Legend of the Holy Drinker, a 1939 novel by Joseph Roth, an Austrian author. And, well, the project is interesting.

The first track that we start with blends in some tribal and noise elements, becoming fairly experimental in nature. There's also a female voice that both speaks and breathes over the noise. However, where the song was once nice and smoothing, it turns into a dark ambient track, with the voice of the female also becoming very, very evil sounding, as if she's been possessed by a demon. It's very unsettling and very awesome.

I have no idea why the second track was titled Anal Worms at all, and it is the only title in English on the album, but it is a drone track, focusing, for the first half, on a singular note. Later on in, it becomes more of a dark ambient track with humming and constant atmospheric noise. It was decent, although the first half could have been much better than what was presented.

I didn't have much to say about the next two tracks, but then when Komsaufen Am Kiosk came along, it was interesting with the samples they used. It sounded like a martial arts film was mashed together with a porno in the beginning, and then gets into a repetitious beat for the rest of the song and wasn't all too good.

Most of this album does play out like your standard dark ambient album; this is what I'm starting to notice now. Despite the intros in the song that begin off the tracks a bit differently, the rest of it is really a little boring. I mean, even Urethrale Schikanen begins off with a sound that I can only describe as a giant bee buzzing around and then goes into static, and then into more dark ambience that I can't really describe because not much goes on in the track. And, I suppose this is where the review ends. I don't want to continue babbling on and saying the same thing over and over. I can say that, while this is an enjoyable album, it's really nothing I haven't heard before.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
