Unitron
Angst is the seventh studio album from industrial metal/rock band KMFDM.

After the band released their first masterpiece, Money, the band went on to release masterpieces again and again for quite a while. Angst is the second of these, and showcases not only KMFDM's great skills of variation but also some of the best industrial thrash metal out there.

Like always, the band delivers gritty hard-hitting industrial metal as well as catchy industrial dance tracks. "A Drug Against War" is both among my favorite industrial and thrash metal tracks, as it just stabs you with razor-sharp riffing and will have you chanting 'KMFDM is a drug a against war!' for weeks. Another killer thrasher comes in the form of "Glory", with fist-pumping guitar combined with some killer riff variations. "A Hole in the Wall" is a slow-tempo thrash cut of epic proportions. "Lust" is a top-notch catchy industrial dance number, and shows that the band can bring it to the dance floor as much as they can thrash your skull. There are also some times when they bring majestic heavy metal to an industrial setting such as "Move On".

Vocalists Sascha Konietzko and En Esch give some of their best performances on this album, just check out the stark screams on "A Hole in the Wall". Throughout the rest of the album they really perfect their sneering vocals and really sound pissed off and sardonic at the same time. The lyrics here are among the band's best as well, just look at the lyrics of "A Drug Against War", "Glory", and the humorous "Sucks" with the Primus-esque line of 'No doubt about it, KMFDM sucks'.

Want some killer industrial metal, do yourself a huge favor and check this album out. Industrial, thrash, epic metal, and catchy industrial dance is featured all in one so why not get it all with the same album. The greatness would only continue.

Hope you found this review helpful, feel free to comment!
