Adios (Wax Trax Records)

By: DJ Dysdynia

KMFDM, a group considered to be one of the few groups to be able to break out of the stereotype industrial clich's and hit it in the mainstream market, has released their final project called ADIOS. Sasha, En Esch, Tim Skold and Gunter Schulz have come together to finally put an end to an industrial band that has been around since the early 80's. The discography of KMFDM begins with What Do You Know Deutchland, Don't Blow Your Top, Naive - Hell to Go, Angst, Brute, Xtort, to name a few and continues through popular soundtracks like Mortal Kombat, Hideaway, Johnny Mnemonic and Bad Boys. ADIOS begins with the title track by the same name. This intro is a typical guitar grinding, drum machine syncopated, high speed electronic track that is and always has been a KMFDM trade mark. Other notable tracks on the album are D.I.Y., a saucy song orchestrated with the KMFDM SUCKS feel; Today, a slower but still dancable track without distorted vocals or guitar; and Rubicon, another slow song that lacks the distortion. For their last hoo-rah KMFDM took a milder approach to ADIOS by reducing distortion in vocals and using less guitars. Overall the album is good industrial with a "poppie" twist but, long-term KMFDM fans may want to listen to this one before running out and buying it.
