READER’S CHOICE: RAMMSTEIN VS. UMLAUTS
A reader calling him (or her, but probably him)self “K S” sent us the below track, which is apparently called “MINÄ MÄÄRÄÄN!”, and is by a Finnish industrial band called Turmion Kätilöt.
Holy shit, could there be any more umlauts up there? Mötley Crüe are suffering from some serious umlaut envy right now.
ANYWAY, K S suggested that this band might be better than Rammstein, and I have to disagree. This songs features what has to be one of the more generic industrial riffs I’ve ever heard. I know that most industrial riffs are kinda basic, but there’s a massive difference between this and the epic, pseudo-symphonic majesty of Rammstein’s “Mein Herz brennt,” or even the filthy, scummy, punch-you-in-the-face-for-no-reason guitars that power My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult’s “After the Flesh.” The below song is just, like, industrial’s answer to a Triple A riff.
Check out Turmion Kätilöt below, and let K S know what you think in the comments section.
