TONTTU - Der Human-Gnome-Projektum 5
Martial Industrial, Neofolk That crazy Finnish bastard TONTTU is back in action once more with Der Human-Gnome Projektum 5. Without changing much at all in terms of theme, he's still cranking out one Gnome hating song after the next, with the sole purpose of trying to make everyone aware of the red hats evil plots.

The digital promo that I received not only came with lyrics (Side by side with the Finnish to English translation), but it also came with the credits, and a printables package. In the printables, you can create your very own Gnome slaying ID card, a certificate that you're in the army, and other such fun stuff. Plus, it comes with some pretty wicked Gnome-occult art from P. Emerson Williams, so check that out.

Musically, you can expect the usual spoken word sounds that TONTTU has sort of become known for. Lots of periods where the music tones down to nothing more but ambiance in the background as a serious voice speaks about either plans regarding to, or acts, or encouragement of the mythological creatures demise. Surprisingly, you can catch more electronic use in this release, such as on the fifth track. Interesting, and I think the band should really take this approach, as I found myself a little bored with other songs on the album.

And, well, that's about all I have to say about this album. While it still manages to entertain, I suppose there might be a time when I'm no longer all too interested in the act considering that the same messages are being spewed with each release. Not saying that they should change, but the music definitely should progress more than what it already has. But, for now, keep aware, and don't fall for any evil Gnomish plots. It will be out on the 12th, so stay tuned.

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.
