Genre/Influences: Future-pop, body-pop, electro-pop.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Here comes the fifth full length album by the German trio Eisfabrik. The work features twelve songs including “And Nothing Turns” and “White Sheet” which already appeared at the EP “Rotationsausfall in Der Eisfabrik”.
Content: ‘Dr. Schnee’, ‘Der Frost’ and ‘Celsius’ are moving on their exploration of poppy-body music. It remains a unique experience, this band being much more than guys with a crazy image. The music is danceable, worked out and always danceable. You clearly can hear the touch of Gerrit Thomas throughout the leads, arrangements and even the way the kicks have been programmed. But Eisfabrik is of course more ‘pop’-driven. The vocals are sung in English come as a contrast to the German title of the album.
You’ll recognize both songs that were originally released on the EP, but are different edits. “White sheet” for example is a quite dreamy outro to the album.
+ + + : The EP was a promising teaser to the new Eisfabrik opus and I’m sure “Kryothermalmusik Aus Der Eisfabrik” will not disappoint you. There’s enough great stuff featured at this work. The songs are driven by ultra-danceable beats, but especially the elevating choruses –which you sometimes can sing along, are pushing the song to an unseen apotheosis. The Eisfabrik-sound formula remains exactly the same, but it also remains a great and professional production!
– – – : This album sounds cool, but no longer surprising. The albums and songs are pretty similar so the magic from the first albums is a bit gone.
Conclusion: If you already liked previous Eisfabrik works, you for sure are going to like this new opus as well. Eisfabrik remains to me the future-pop exposure from Funker Vogt.
Best songs: “And Nothing Turns – Extended”, “We Don’t Care”, “Opposites Collide”, “Journey Of Oblivion”.
