Komor Kommando - Oil, Steel & Rhythm
Industrial, Noise I really have a hard time to think that Sebastian Komor with his Komor Kommando manages to produce tracks that I find interesting. It was that way with his EP 'Das EP' and unfortunately it is the same with his album 'Oil, Steel & Rhythm'. Sure, there's a lot of rhythm in this album, that is for sure, but tracks are simply not compelling to me.

Instrumental and sample based music is hard. You really have to create something special to keep the listener interested, much harder than if you have a vocalist. Some artists manage to do so; Noisuf-X and SAM are two examples.

The production quality and mastering is good, but still, in this 15 track release, it is only one track that I will really remember and probably listen to again, and that is the heavily inspired, or sampled (hard to tell without seeing Sergio Leone's moves again), "Il buono, Il brutto, Il cattivo". The track is called "Hasta Luego" and is surely a track you guys should check out. Really want to swing my wrinkled old ass to that tune on the dance floor.

Otherwise, an alright release, but leaves me pretty unimpressed.
