Megadump is a fairly new German heavy electro-industrial/EBM
act that are quickly making a name for themselves. This latest release
by them is a good indication why they are gaining popularity. This CD
explodes with extremely energetic driving clubfloor music right from
the start, and only lets up a couple of times throughout the album.
Most of the songs here were definitely developed for the clubfloor as
they will make you want to stomp all of your hate and anger out. These
songs are aggressive, powerful and hard driving with dark techno induced
music, slamming bass beats and deep thick accented male vocals.
There is a good helping of variety included here as the songs do manage to
sound rather different from track to track presenting unique and creative
elements that keep them all quite interesting.
Six of the songs include German lyrics, and four include English lyrics. The
tracks with German lyrics are extremely hard and heavy with powerful beats
and angry vocals. The songs with English lyrics are a little calmer with
more melody. I assume the reason for this is due to the fact that the German
language sounds stronger for the heavier songs, while the English language
allows for more of a melodic delivery. Whatever the reason, it does work and
allows for more variety here. But since I donít understand German, I would
have liked more songs with English lyrics.
One of the odd things here is that the singer for this band sounds a little
different depending on what language he sings in. When he sings German his
voice is very thick and gruff, but when he sings English his voice is softer
and more melodic. He can sing with melody quite well, and it would have been
nice if he did it a little more on this album.
If you want a quality hard and heavy angry and aggressive clubfloor packing
electro-industrial/EBM combination with a touch of melody, this CD is a
