Der - Supersound [Bisou Records 020 / Beats Records 308]

Released on April 20th, 2k22 as a coordinated joint venture effort between the two labels Bisou Records and Beast Records is "Supersound", the first official album outing by the four piece band outfit Der. Comprised of members Red, Jex, DDDxie and Cosmic Neman their 40 minutes 40 seconds spanning firstling sees Der providing a powerful and breathless ride through a total of 12 songs starting with the dubbed out PostPunk x Garage crossover that is "Normal", one piece that might even incorporate certain influences of genres like Psychobilly whereas "Ready To Founce" brings forth pure smoked out, Blues-infused GarageRock and heavy riffing for motorcycle gangs, "Shark" fullfills each and every lost desert dive bar cliche within its very first minute, "Cactus" turns out to be a candidate for our favorite cut of the album due to its hard hitting Rock drums and sedcutive groove whereas "Screen Kills" provides a proper hot soundtrack for a ride on the fast lane leading straight towards havoc and the imminent apocalypse whilst the "Heartbreak Hotel" even gets into spaced out StonerFunk just to name a few. If you're familiar with bands like Ben Wood Inferno and likeminded artists "Supersound" surely is an album to check out.
