-Father Worked In Industry
"Father Worked In Industry"
Their top-quality debut album sent a shockwave through the Electronic Body Music scene, and got them the recognition as the "best pure EBM discovery" made by Alfa Matrix.
Today, our favourite Norwegian electroheads return with their new studio album, mixed and mastered by none other than Claus Larsen of Leæther Strip. Starting with a song entitled "We are still Kant Kino", all we can say is that the Kat Kino boys' sound has matured a lot revealing impressive song-writing skills and a top notch recording approach. While gaining in force and power, their straight EBM sound shines through carrying synthetic melodies and elaborate vocal arrangements. The stomping beats, the rough edged sound, and the angry vocals are still there. But, the intelligent addition of clear and vocoder vocals as well as some guest female vocalists, and the injection of wider influences from techno/electro to even pop/rock in the song structures, all contribute to give a much stronger focus on catchy choruses and melodies in their characteristic EBM / Dark Electronics musical equation. Kant Kino even dared writing a seductive industrial waltz with the unique "Ich liebe Katarina Witt" as well as covering Daniel
The Normal Millers classic "Warm Leaetherette" with Claus Larsen on vocals... "Father Worked In Industry" is a non-stop hit-machine that will reconcile all true EBM-fans and hardcore
followers of bands like Front 242, And One, Nitzer Ebb, Icon Of Coil, etc. All united marching behind the Norwegian duo.
