REVCO/KORN/RAMMSTEIN (CD Mini Reviews)

REVCO - GOT MIXXX?

Comprising of fifty minutes of non-stop continuous dancefloor ditties,'Got MiXXX?'is a
raunchy remix of the Cock’s Spring 2010 release 'Got Cock?'.Produced by RevCo founder, Al Jourgensen, and re-mixed by Blownload frontman Erie Loch.Has to be said that these 10 tracks are far superior to the original album whilst it juxtaposes trashy subjects with classy high-end production values making this RevCo’s most powerful sound to date!

KORN - THE PATH OF TOTALITY
So Korn's traditional sound mixed with dubstep/drum and bass and electro house music,
collaborating with a number of producers for the album with each guest their own
individual tracks.
Realising the potential controversay Roadrunner released the following statement:
“ The Path of Totality is unlike any previous Korn release; it's an experimental record
which finds the band shifting gears and exploring new territory. For the record, Korn
collaborated with some of the leading dubstep and electronic music producers in the
world, including Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Noisia, Kill the Noise, and 12th Planet.The
result is something completely new, yet utterly and definitively Korn.”
Singer Jonathan Davis describes the new album as "very well-rounded, with a mix of
mellow, upbeat tracks; possibly the most well-proportioned Korn album of all time."He also went on to talk a load of bollocks declaring The Path of Totality as "future
metal." "We're mixing metal and electro music, and you're not supposed to do that. Since
day one, Korn has always been all about going against the grain, experimenting, and
trying to take music different places."
In fact they are playing catch up big time as the likes of Linkin Park/Limp Bizkit have
been doing this for years now, if Korn want to go against the grain then perhaps that
should release a symphonic black metal album.
But for all the talk the album is not quite the trainwreck i expected with some of the
songs sounding much better than on their previous "Normal" album.

RAMMSTEIN - MADE IN GERMANY 1995-2011
Rammstein formed in Berlin in 1994 by former european swimming champion and punk drummer Till Lindemann (vocals) and Richard Z. Kruspe (lead guitar), Paul H. Landers (rhythm guitar), Oliver "Ollie" Riedel (bass), Christoph "Doom" Schneider (drums) and Christian
"Flake" Lorenz (keyboards).

They are part of the 'Neue Deutsche Härte' scene (alongside others such as Oomph!, Eisbrecher, Die Krupps).Achieving worldwide fame with outrageous videos, amazing live theatrical shows with world class pyrotechnic effects, movie appearences and endless hit singles and albums (sales in excess of 16 million), all this whilst not compromising their sound or the fact that they sing in German.


This is a 2 cd set, disc one covers mainly singles and includes all the classics like 'Du
Hast','Sonne' and 'Keine Lust' and a new song 'Mein Land' (Reviewed eleswhere on this
blog).
Disc two is a compilation of remixes from acts as diverse as Pet shop Boys and Scooter to
Clawfinger and Devin Townsend (which is mental with banjos, fart noise and an annoying
meow meow refrain).
