ALTHOFF, KAI - FANAL II (LP)


"The second Fanal album is released, and as you might know, the man behind is Kai Althoff. It features some extraordinary, almost brutally nasty pieces about eviction and deportation as well as a song about the instructions of a sexually obsessed man. There are almost always vocals, and none of them are nice or pleasing. The music is guitar, bass, synthesizer, drum computer and vocals, as already mentioned. To me it seems to be rather a vehicle to emphasise the words. The rhythm is always faster, apart from the track "Mit Den Hunden" (with the dogs). And finally Fanal poses the question: What does it mean to have a mother? One's values are dismantled, taken apart and replaced by aggression... it's Fanal again, heralding a fight by physical as well as mental means. For some this music is only distinguished by its nastiness, but they'll find that all they can hope for is an hour of gentle reckoning..." (label info) Strictly limited to 300 copies.
