Album Review

Sometimes it happens that the success of the other person or group of persons disturbs you so much that you can't sleep at night, thinking you could do the same, or even better! I bet this idea came to gazillion of German musicians after RAMMSTEIN broke through. What morons those RAMMSTEIN are! There were dozens of bands doing the same stuff long before, there were bands which did even better. And how many more bands appeared afterwards, doing the same thing or even better. And it is kind of funny that after all these years this idea is still in the air and in the records.

OST+FRONT's ‘Ultra’ is an amazing and strong piece of music. It is actually surprisingly good for this kind of music. On the one hand there are recognizable influences of the German scene: from NDH to folk rock. Somehow “gothic“ includes this whole range today. On the other hand ‘Ultra’ is such a thing-in-itself and OST+FRONT is so dedicated to their music that it is quite easy to leave all the associations aside. OST+FRONT is the band for those who love hard music, dance metal, tough melodies, brutal themes as well as for those who believe that industrial was an invention of MARILYN MANSON or RAMMSTEIN (don't be embarrassed if you recognized yourself in the last one). On ‘Ultra’ you'll find choirs and orchestra variations, good old folk metal and industrial metal, and of course German lyrics. There is one song which you'll love from the first accord – ‘Fiesta de sexo’ featuring Erk Aicrag (HOCICO, RABIA SORDA). And now it is the moment when you can say that OST+FRONT did it definitely better than RAMMSTEIN! ‘Te quiero puta’ is a pussy version of ‘Fiesta de sexo’.

The last paragraph of this review should be and will be for Out of Line. Those of you who still believe that labels are the greatest evil of the music industry probably missing what efforts this one is making. Aside the annual massive festivals and enormous number of releases, this label involves musicians from different bands into each other’s production. Working together and discovering the greatest things of each other they are not only complement each other's projects but also charging their own solos.
