TotenmonD - Unter Knochen

After the nod towards old Punk Rock heroes TOTENMOND are back with own material again. And what we get on “Unter Knochen” is damn entertaining. Only the drum sound, which stands on one level with the unnerving factor of IMPENDING DOOM’s “Caedes Sacrilegae”, is a let down. Anyways, with time you even get used to the sound of an oil barrel.


The material of TOTENMOND reminds me a lot of the equally great and unknown Industrial Deathsters EISENVATER. Massive riffs pair with straight song structures, partly, as on “Leuchtquell” the guitars have a Punk list, great! One can say about the band and their songs whatever you want, but they are pretty darn variable and catchy.


Would CARNIVORE (folks, you’ll have this comparison until the end of days) play Death Metal, we’d be pretty close to this. But also those, who love WARPATH’s “Massive” album can get “Unter Knochen” without second thoughts. With the cover artwork by Sonja Hölzle they band also has a hit, so 8 points.
