CD review Kommando XY - Welcome to Gestrikland

E-mail Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) PDF

kommando_xy_cover

 

genre :  EBM / ElectroPunk

release date : winter 2009

label : Electric Tremor Dessau

 ''Gestrikland'' is the name of a region in Eastern Sweden.The Band is an EBM / electropunk descendant of DAF and Nitzer Ebb..They were insired by these 2 oldschool legends and then with the influence by Spetsnaz and Pouppee Fabrikk came to be another band which stands in the tradition of great Swedish EBM..''Welcome to Gestrikland'' is a harsh oldschool EBM, programmed by Gustav Jansson, and accompanied by the roaring voice of Joke Mohlund.All tracks are part of the ruthless traditional swedish EBM.They all last about 2 minutes and are full of powerful noises,tough beats and of course like AK47 bullet hits! Both guys started back in 2005 and with an invitation from Suicide Commando to cover back vocals,they proved their abilities..These guys are Joke and Gustav..shortly they formed Kommando XY and began working..  This album is their promising work,It shows us swedish combined with Electropunk and EBM in an amazing result..''Gestrikland'' the first song is really great...reminds me of old pals like Nitzer Ebb..as good as   ''Älgjakt'' , ''Brynäs'' and ''IF Vargen'' which will terrorize you with extreme vocals , dark sounds and above all the melodies of the approaching waR ! ''Vargavinter'' is also good enough and a bit of different from the rest..But always with machine gun bullets sounds to make you dance!  Their music is today considered oldschool EBM...Well, It's not..It is the authentic EBM sound came from DAF years ago and the Electropunk sounds came from Nitzer Ebb and Spetsnaz.. Their work is great..and they are just an ''infant''..Who knows..? In 10 years we may see them rising as we saw Spetsnaz do years ago..However,One thing is certain..they have abilities and the proof is this album.... 

''Welcome to Gestrikland''  Great work,a good start..  Worthy of the tradition they follow...
