:Wumpscut: - Siamese
EBM, Industrial If you don't know about Wumpscut, you must have been living in a cave for the last 20 years. I must admit that the last three albums have been really terrible and that I didn't have much of hope for the new one either.

But I was really surprised and shocked about his latest release 'Siamese'. It would seem the old Wumpscut is back again with some really nice clubs tracks and some really old school songs that have that gritty and dirty feeling to them, like the track "Teufelszeug".

Then we have a nice slow track with the same name as the album, simply called "Siamese", but my two overall favorite tracks that are also played a lot on dancer floors (specially in Germany) are the tracks "Boneshakers Baby" and " Loyal to my hate".

This time it seems that Mr Ratzinger is actually taking a step in the right direction and not trying to experiment to much as he did before, of course this new album isn't as raw as 'Bunkertor 7' or those old albums, but still a band has to evolve and move forward to some extent and its hard to top some of your really brilliant work.

I would say this album has something for everyone who either enjoys melodic club beats or to people who like more noisy tracks with weird sampled guitar sounds. I'd say the majority of tracks on this album are good, but of course they are far from perfect. Still the production is good and the vocals sound the way they always do.
