Genre/Influences: EBM.

Content: Three years after their astonishing debut album “We Are Kant Kino, You Are Not” the Norwegian sensation strikes back with a new fascinating piece of EBM.

Kant Kino is not this typical EBM band trying to emulate some EBM icons. They all sound like they’ve been inspired by some Godfather of EBM trying to inject an own touch in the composition. The music covers a few more influences, which can be pop-like and dark-electro minded, but always driven through the same body-spirit.

The debut part of the new work is a perfect illustration of this mixture while we also notice an evolution into a more polished production. “Push Your Buttons” and “My Game (Album)” both are solid EBM pieces led by strong bass lines, dark sequences, some bombastic rhythmic parts and harsh vocals. “My Sweetest Crime” turns over into a rather body-pop inspired song lead by female vocals. Kant Kino has achieved a few songs with female vocals and backings vocals.

After some quieter songs “Freezing” brings us back to the EBM essence of this release. The sound becomes fully accomplished when discovering the great “Just For The Comfort Of Sleep” –which still is the title song of the recently released digital EP. But the best is yet to come on “Reality”. This song reminds me a bit of good-old X Marks The Pedwalk.

“Warm Leætherette” is a song that needs no further introduction. This song is a classic and has been covered by so many bands. Kant Kino’s cover is one of the best electro-versions in years featuring Claus Larsen on vocals and some unexpected extracts of Depeche Mode’s “Something To Do”. Mr. Leather Strip took care of the mixing and mastering of this album, which adds a nice touch to the production.

The 2nd disc, hidden in the limited edition, features the usual number of remixes. The absolute high light is the kind of old-school EBM inspired Elec This! Remix of “Push Your Buttons”. The opening cut also is worthy of examination. This is an alternative mix by Kant Kino of their 1st EP title song “LRSBSS”. Other noticeable remixes have been executed by Aesthetische and Leather Strip. Another tip is the remix by Tear Party. A few more noticeable names are Kant Kino’s compatriots of Gothminister.

Conclusion: This album stands for an exciting and pretty diversified EBM release. The album reveals a great progression and maturity –even if their debut album already was fully accomplished.

Best songs: “Push Your Buttons”, “My Game – Album”, “My Sweetest Crime”, “Reality”.

Rate: (DP:8)DP.
