Nachtmahr - Mädchen in Uniform
EBM, Industrial It's hard to keep track of Thomas Rainer's Nachtmahr. What started out as a industrial dance project later became mixed with Aggrotech and the minute you think you know what he is going for, the headline of his latest EP release 'Mädchen in Uniform' is a real Old-School EBM showdown.

As I said before, 'Mädchen in Uniform' is heavily influenced by the Old-School scene and it's so great that even Spetsnaz would have been jealous during their days. Still I have to say that "Faderhead's Remix" beats the crap out of the original. The melodies during the chorus are awesome and I've must have heard this specific song over 50 times the last couple of weeks.

Together with the "Faderhead Remix" of "Mädchen in Uniform", the next two tracks are my favourites on this EP. The awesome cover of Falco's "Titanic" is pure gold and the vocals are extremely similar to Claus voice from Tyske Ludder, almost scary. Next tune up is the industrial dance tune "El Chupacabra" that I truly wish I could go mad to on the dance floor together with that one. The samples fit the purpose great and I really like the overall rhythm and flow. Three tracks in a row I can?t get enough of.

Thomas is not saving anything for this EP. We get the two original versions of "Tanzdiktator" and "Mörder" from his latest album "Alle Lust Will Ewigkeit" as well as four remixes of "Tanzdiktator" and "Mörder". The original versions speak for themselves and are of course really great tracks. I?m not so impressed by all the remixes though, the "Modulate Remix" of "Tanzdiktator" is heavy and nice as well as the "Feindflug Remix" of "Mörder".

"Mädchen in Uniform" is a great EP release from Nachtmahr, that continues to surprise.
