Tyske Ludder - Diaspora
EBM My favourite German Whores are back with their new album 'Diaspora'. Since they did a reboot of the band back in 2006 with their 'Sojus' album, they had a great market impact and got great reviews, even though I think that their debut 'Bömbt Die Mörder?' from 1994 is an exceptional album as well.

If you've heard the 'Sojus' and 'Anonymus' albums, you will recognize the sounds and structure right away, but with some exceptions. To say that they are being experimental is a bit overstatement, but it sometimes feels like they have tried to bash their head a bit against the walls of the box. One example being the track "For Their Glory" that sounds like a hail storm pounding against a metal roof, figure of speech of course. Same thing goes with "Nur Ein Traum", "R.A.S.S. (Minus Vier)" that is a bit different from the usual sound. Even though I feel that they are not as great as many of the other tracks, it's still nice to get some mix up every now and then.

Don't worry though, because this album is filled with great modern old school EBM (not sure you are allowed to combine modern and old like this, but that is probably the best way to describe their sound) tracks, wonderful melodies and Albert's voice is still exceptional and ground trembling. Tracks you must check out are "Tempelberg", "Eugenix", "Wallfarth (Betonkater Edit)", "Diaspora", "Der Androgyne Held", "Abgesang" (including the great Northborne Remix of the track) and "Merciless". The one track that I actually have a hard time with is "Reiscraecker". Somehow singing about food in a hard EBM track just doesn't do it for me. The minute I heard "Chilli Con Carne" harshly sung, something died.

Tyske Ludder's kill streak since to be ever going and 'Diaspora' is no exception.
