:Wumpscut: - Cannibal Anthem
EBM, Industrial Rudy Ratzinger, a former great DJ that later on started to produce his own music, don't play live and are recognized as one of the most appreciated artists within the harder industrial music. People tattoo the band name, dress up their children in the bands t-shirts... Yeah, it has to bee something special with Wumpscut and where the symbol :W: is as important as the number 242.

The year was 1991 when Wumpscut released his first demo, now 15 years later the album 'Cannibal Anthem' is released, which is a fitting name since the cannibal panic that now hits Germany. It?s pretty common that Wumpscut makes re-releases of his albums and redo many of the tracks with English lyrics, but at this point it?s only German words on the first release.

The strongest tracks on the album are "Die Liebe", "Jesus Antichristus" (both highlighted on a sticker of the front of the album), "Wir Warten", "Cannibal Anthem" and "Auf Der Jagd". You easily recognize the way to form the tracks and the soundscapes, without the feeling that it's been reused.

Continue to keep your eyes opened when it's about Wumpscut, Rudy still have much to give.
