Schrekk & Grauss
DIGITAL (2011) · Listen & Buy on Bandcamp
Riding high on the success of his previous two albums, Wumpscut mastermind Rudy Ratzinger now presents his latest effort Schrekk & Grauss
(loosely translated as "Scare & Horror"). Active since 1993, Wumpscut is one of the few industrial acts that have succeeded in maintaining a prominent position in electronic music since its very beginnings, with a total of 18 albums so far in the discography. Schrekk & Grauss
offers the infamous :W: sound- harsh industrial, synth-driven, with distorted vocals and scary melodies. After a few excursions into more 'mellow' sound-regions in recent releases, on S&G
Rudy R. returns to the more aggressive, harder stuff always maintaining his special trademark: a well balanced mélange of catchy melodies, great arrangements and industrial noise.
