K.I.F.O.T.H. - Violence Corporation
EBM, Industrial The Slovakian EBM band K.I.F.O.T.H. is something completely new to me. I have never heard them before and I have never heard about them before. So it was with an open mind I threw myself into the land of 'Violence Corporation'.

The first thing I reflected on during my first listen was how 90's EBM this sound and after some quick research I found out that they actually been around since the beginning on the 90's, sticking with that distinct sound and kept to it. Where a lot of artists go more danceable and more alternative main stream nowadays, it?s nice to hear some more complex industrial beats. It's heavy influenced by Front Line Assembly, think 'Caustic Grip' and you are not to far off.

It's a lot of tracks that I would like to list, even though I see this more like an album to be listened to through and through, more than pitching out favourite tracks. Still, I need to mention a few. "Ten Fingers" have a really cool voice effect that I really like, the Persian sounds in "Jihad" is really awesome and "Manipulator" which is really driven track.

All and all, I'm very impressed with this album and Vendetta Music did a good thing releasing this. It's like a wind from the past, but not with the smell of molding clothes, more a fresh smell of the good old days.
