Brutal Legend Band Spotlight: KMFDM
With such an awesome, heavy and varied soundtrack backing this latest expedition from the mind of Tim Schafer, we here at Aeropause are going to give you a look into some of the bands laying the Metal foundation
Whatever the sound, they invented the sound. Having formed in 1984, KFMDM practically shaped what was to become the industrial genre. Over 25 years of almost constant music production, Sascha Konietzko has been unfettered in bringing the loudest, ultra heavy beats. One of their more well-known tracks, Juke Joint Jezebel, was even featured in the anime Street Fighter 2: The Animated Movie, in a scene where Chun-Li beats the ever-loving snot out of Vega. Yes, the awesome anime and not the silly live-action version. And I know what you’re thinking, “So what does KMFDM stand for?” Try “Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid” which is ‘loosely’ translated to “No pity for the majority”. So how can you get more Metal than being an German industrial group? How about through lampooning yourself: KFMDM SUCKS! And remember kids, free your hate to rip the system.
I lied, there’s two videos because one is just not enough to contain the AWESOMENESS of KMFDM. You’re welcome.Tags: brutal legend, industrial, kmfdm, mdfmk, metal, soundtrack
