Yeah. Punkrock. Psyched and condensed into thirteen tracks and a playtime of 39 minutes, emanating from the mind of Jens Rachut who is widely known as mastermind of the great N.R.F.B. project and founder of bands legendary like Oma Hans, Dackelblut or Blumen Am Arsch Der Hölle. Without musical frills apart from a female off choir that's popping up from time all songs are marching straight forward like a proper street fighting gang ready to take action. The whole album provides an aura that's kinda timeless, especially when it comes to the Crime Funk bass driven "6/8", and I guess it's never about to grow old on anyone being into Punk and related stuff which is also due to Rachut's special lyrics that go slightly deeper than your regular Punk Rock album with lines like "Der Letzte macht das Licht aus. Und auch die ganzen Dimmer", "Wenn du draussen Lärm hörst ist nicht immer Krieg" or "Das System ist einfach. Wer Angst hat der friert." that make you surely think twice. Listening to a tune like "Liebesbombenkrater" telling the story of someone who has lost the love of his life makes ones heart feel sick for a reason and the conrete grey depression of "Schwesternmilch" is one of the darkest, crestfallen things I've come across in ages. There's no future. Still.
