Description

The “new guy” on the mic in Funker Vogt is probably known to many through the duo Intent:Outtake. Since composer and producer Gerrit Thomas has already recorded vocals and mixed & mastered for this formation and they have therefore already gotten to know and appreciate each other, it was certainly no great surprise for the fans that Bastian Polak was hired for Funker Vogt.
The band itself sees this engagement as the biggest musical step forward in the band’s 28- year history and firmly believes that this is the final line-up, which is underlined by the album title.
The sound on Funker Vogt´s “Final Construct” brings plenty of epicness, as the band has focused heavily on songwriting and emphasized the anthemic character more than ever. Almost every one of the 19 newly composed tracks has the so-called single character, so it was very difficult to choose the three pre-release singles: “Death Seed” (just released in physical form) and the 2 digital singles “Blessed or Cursed” and “The Signaller (Club Mix)”.
On all the songs on this album and its bonus tracks, Mr. Polak consistently proves that he is the right man for Funker Vogt and leaves nothing to be desired in terms of flexibility in vocal range, aggressiveness and melody. There was no shying away from the very epic track “Im Auge des Orkans” in ¾ time, which is arranged as the outro of the double album and is probably the only real breakout. All the other songs feature the typical, aggressive but always melodic industrial dance beat that we have come to know and love from the Funkers.
In terms of content, it is roughly about the constant changes in our society. Lyrics writer Bastian Polak comments: “You just can’t keep quiet when you look at all the misery in the world and you might think we’re glorifying war, but the exact opposite is the case. We hold up a mirror to you and tell you about suffering and death, but also about solidarity and courage. Each of us knows the way that would solve all these problems in one fell swoop: Peace and cohesion.
Unfortunately, the human species is not yet ready for this. Together we can make a difference, because tolerance and empathy show us the right way. When will we finally learn from our mistakes? When will the change finally come?”
With these sentences, he hits the bull’s eye of Funker Vogt’s soul, so that Gerrit & René have no doubt that Polak fits into the structure like the rear sight on the grain. With “Final Construct”,
Funker Vogt are back with their final line-up. So soak it up, shout it out into the world and join them on the road to change!
