kmfdm paradiseWith 2019 marking 35 years of conceptual continuity, KMFDM is showing no signs of slowing down or mellowing out. On the contrary, the Ultra Heavy Beat is as fired up and as energised as ever with the release of the band’s 21st album, ‘Paradise’.

Long revered for their innovative blend of virtually all forms of music into a monolithic juggernaut of Industrial/ Rock, topped off with scathing and confrontational lyrics that challenge the social and political zeitgeist, KMFDM is at the top of their game as this latest album hosts some of the band’s most diverse material ever. From the abrasive Hip-Hop styling of ‘K-M-F’ to the dark Alternative Rock ambience of ‘Oh My Goth’, the Dub-meets-Electro / Metal assault of ‘Paradise’ and ‘No God’, and the mechanised Industrial/ Dance energy of ‘Automaton’, ‘Disturb the Peace’ and ‘Megalo’ (a new rendition of the band’s classic ‘Megalomaniac’), they leave no stone unturned as the album calls for revolution against a world overrun by fascism, authoritarianism and violence.

Helmed by founder and frontman Sascha ‘Käpt’n K’ Konietzko and Lucia Cifarelli, delivering their searing and brutal vocal performances like liquid daggers, and backed by the percussive fury of Andy Selway, KMFDM is also joined by BLACK SUGAR TRANSMISSION’s Andee Blacksugar lending his angular guitars to give the seething bite of ‘Paradise’ just that extra shot of venom. Of course, what would a KMFDM album be without a few guest performances? ‘PARADISE’ hosts some of the most impressive in the band’s history: Doug Wimbish (TACKHEAD, LIVING COLOR) returns for another round to lend his electrified funk bass skills to ‘Piggy’, long-time alumni Cheryl Wilson brings her soul mama vocals to the disco-infused ‘WDYWB’, while rapper Andrew “Ocelot” Lindsley delivers an all-out verbal assault on ‘K-M-F’. If that wasn’t enough, long-time fans will undoubtedly be overjoyed as ‘Binge Boil & Blow’ finds the Lord of Lard himself, Raymond “PIG” Watts, returning to the KMFDM fold for the first time in 16 years!

Fascism is in fashion again, and the planet is a paradise for assholes, but KMFDM will have none of it! Their message is as relevant as ever, and ‘Paradise’ may be the band’s most powerful outing yet, demanding that you live with no regret, don’t look back, find your destiny, destroy what destroys you, and rip the system!
