Clan Of Xymox
Days Of Black
X-Marks The Pedwalk
With their debut album we are Kant Kino - you are not released in 2010, the Norwegian duo took everyone by surprise and got elected to be the best EBM discovery of the year by many. Three years later, their father worked in industry CD reinforced their position with an even more matured production style brilliantly mixing stomping beats and melodic synths. Dont we say that all good things come in threes?
Well, KANT KINO definitely confirm this saying by offering us Kopfkino the 3rd installment signed by this epic EBM franchise. Our favourite Norwegian electro-ministers are about to set another solid footprint on the Electronic Body Music scene repertoire with this powerful full length album. More than ever, KANT KINO manage here to intelligently combine ripping basslines, fast hammering electro beats with more melodic synth arrangements and catchy vocal lines.
A challenging sonic approach reminding us of how broad the spectrum of influences of the band members Lars and Kenneth can be. Strongly rooted in the early EBM style with allusions to FRONT 242 and other NITZER EBB, the album also features harder and darker songs with angry shouts placing them closer to bands like SKINNY PUPPY and HOCICO! Their acute sense for melody and the use of moody female guest vocals on a couple of songs nicely place them next to bands like Icon Of Coil.
