Genre/Influences: EBM, dark-electro.
Content: Sound-wise nothing has changed! Funker Vogt remains inspired by powerful dark-EBM revealing the genius of Gerrit Thomas. Funker Vogt is a band with a very own sound DNA and that’s an aspect you directly recognize. The title song is powerful, danceable, featuring great arrangements and dark-technoid sequences.
The vocals of Chris L. of course are different than Jens Kaestel, but the least I can say is that it works! The EP features two different versions of the title song plus remixes by Patenbrigade Wolff and Winterhart. There also is a B-side song entitled “Blut Und Schmerz”.
+ + + : Funker Vogt is back on track and that’s for sure real good and great news for the fans and all lovers of dark-EBM. It will take some time to get used to the new singer, but in the end, he fully succeeded on this EP. I especially like the catchy lyrics of the title song. “Der Letzte Tanz” is a solid title track featuring all the familiar elements of Funker vogt. Power, dance and melody! I also have to mention the interesting diversity in the remixes and especially the epic-like remix of Winterhart.
– – – : As I said it will take some time to get used to Chris L; it’s not an easy thing to replace a charismatic singer of a band like Funker Vogt!
Conclusion: Funker Vogt is back on the EBM front and this first sonic raid is not their biggest success although a real nice comeback!
