Content: Tyske Ludder is back on track with a new EP while the new full length (cf. “Evolution”) is in the pipeline.
The German EBM combo already got a very positive response to “Meskalin”, which sounds in the purest tradition of the band.
“Meskalin” is driven by some Kraftwerk-like sequences while the chorus is carried by a solid and somewhat raw, but melodic lead. A kind of sampled guitar riff has been placed in the background to inject some extra power although I’ve to say “Meskalin” is not exactly their heaviest piece in history. It simply is a great dancefloor cut in the truest vein of Tyske Ludder, but with a refreshing touch on top.
We next get a noticeable remix by Grendel, which is more into a powerful format, but not exactly the best work I’ve heard from VLRK. I expected much more out of this remix while the remix by NorthBorne is a great surprise. I thought this project was no longer active, but this dark and phenomenal remix of “Meskalin” mixes elements of industrial- and EBM together with the raw chorus.
Concerning NorthBorne some of you will maybe remember Christian Lund already remixed Tyske Ludder (cf. “Abgesang”).
Conclusion: All I can say is that “Meskalin” sounds as a solid teaser to the new album planned for autumn. Tyske Ludder remains a total guarantee for qualitative and powerful EBM!
Best songs: “Meskalin”, “Meskalin – Frexta Remix by NorthBorne”.
