Genre/Influences: EBM.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: American brothers Eric and Jeremy Hanes are back on track unleashing the third installment of “The Bunkertapes”-series. This album features eleven songs plus eleven remixes.

Content: If you’re familiar with this formation you probably know what to expect. The work moves on where the previous album left off; elaborated EBM songs covered with cold, Klinik-al atmospheres, solid bass lines, Industrial sound treatments, and powerful vocals. Remixes have been accomplished by Mirland, Grendel, Ext!ze, Moris Blak, Blak Emoji, Mechanical Vein, Anthony [H] , Batavia, Moaan Exis and Chris Vienna. The digital format is featuring 3 more remixes.

+ + + : Spankthenun is a band with its own approach although the sound might remind you of Leather Strip -and that’s not really a surprise as Claus Larsen was featured on their previous work. This is a familiar EBM format achieved with a true sound intelligence. There are several cool songs and also some exciting remixes. The remixes are adding a real bonus.

– – – : The songs are elaborated although the sound formula remains quite similar for all the songs. I think this band is even able to do better.

Conclusion: If you like well-crafted and powerful EBM and if  you have never heard of this band before, I can strongly recommend listening to Spankthenun.

Best songs: “Blot Out The Sun”, “Fuck The Apocalypse”, “Crushing Blow”, “Madman”, “On The Run”, “The Grind” + “Chrome – Ext!Ze Remix”, “No One Survives – Grendel Remix”, “Blak Out The Sun – Moris Blak Remix”.

Rate: 8½.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
