Painbastard - Kriegserklärung
EBM I'd like to welcome you to Painbastard's declaration of war. This declaration is a well written declaration with many great segments of harsh and straight forward electronic warfare.

I missed out on Alex 'Borderline' album as well as 'No Need To Worry' and therefore I haven't heard anything since the release of his second album 'Overkill' back in 2005. Even though five years have passed, you still feel quite at home, but with some good changes and variations.

After the intro called "Rebellion Des Gewissens" the first surprise for me comes, in "BCM" there are very little effects on the vocals and it sounds great. I wish all the tracks where like these, but the distorted ones are still good. However, I would really like to see more of clean vocals in future releases, since I think this is pushing his music forward one step.

"BCM" is also my favourite track and I've listened to it over and over many times, but there are also other tracks you really should check out. "War Never Changes" with the epic Fallout 3 sample is great. The track "Silent Death" which is about the radioactive poisoned children in Kazakhstan is gripping. Face punching "Seek & Destroy" together with "Fuck U All!" will care for your aggressive needs.

Great album from Painbastard, this is well worth your money.
