"GlaubeLiebeTod" CD by Oomph!
The opener, “Gott ist ein Popstar“, also the first single release seems to lead the listener on the wrong path. The new Oomph!-Album is far less about irony and social criticism but rather about all the things the album title proposes: Glaube (belief; “Land in Sicht“, “Ich will deine Seele“), Liebe (love; “Träumst du“) and a lot of Tod (death; “Tanz in den Tod“, “Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod“). That the Morricone-interpretation (Once upon a time in the West) will become a hit alone for the line of the classic western soundtrack can be assumed. While “Gott ist ein Popstar“ has clear references to the trio's EBM-past, the rest of the ten tracks shift between the poles Industrial, Metal and Gothic - the latter leading to such beautiful songs, such as “Eine Frau spricht im Schlaf“, a ballad with Medieval references. A hot candidate for a classic should also be the Gollum-song, called “Mein Schatz“, a truly powerful piece of music. A definite chart tip!
