Tyske Ludder – Meskalin (CD EP – Golden Core/Zyx)

Genre/Influences: EBM.

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 I thought this project was no longer active, but this dark and phenomenal remix of “Meskalin” mixes elements of industrial- and EBM together with the raw chorus.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”.

Rate: (DP:8)DP.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

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. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. 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.
