Biography

Spawned in Paris, France on February 29, 1984, Kein Mehrheit Fr Die Mitleid (which loosely translates into no pity for the majority) was initially an industrial-audio concept accompanying art-installations by Erste Hilfe, a group of painters and sculptors, enfant terrible of the mid-80s German underground art-scene.

In the following years, KMFDM began to pioneer the crossover between ... Read more in Amazon's KMFDM Store

3.0 out of 5 stars KMFDM on autopilot is still A Good Thing 22 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The reliable frequency with which KMFDM crank out releases these days means that while we may not get the collaborative high points of albums like WWIII or the sublime Nihil any more, if you want solid, Euro-tinged industrial rock there are few better purveyors. Favouring a more stripped down, simplified electronic style (as seen on 2009's Blitz and 2011's WTF?!), this could do with having a little more of every element applied to it to make it really stand out.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than ever before 25 April 2013
By ljdj
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am such a fan of theirs and this album is no exception, every time they manage to come up with heavier beats and great synth sounds which make them so talented. animal out really highlights this for me as the analogue really drive's the song forward and also I hurt you, I hurt you not is on the same wave length. the next best thing is a great number as you can't help but dance to the catchy beat and the words really tell it like it is in Hollywood!

I would also reccamend listening too WTF?! especially since the track dystopia really sets the bench mark in the sense of their creativity,new and intuatiuve. the words are dramatic and edgy. for the attitude that we all have come to know and love about kmfdm rebels in kontrol says it all! music to and for the people!

kmfdm I salute you!

5.0 out of 5 stars As close to a Sascha solo album as KMFDM is likely to get 26 Feb 2013
By Herbert West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Other than vocal contributions from wifey Lucia, goth rocker and former Seattle cohort William Wilson, newbie Swedes Morlocks, and guitars by long-time collaborator Jules, Sascha takes full reigns on Kunst, which is fine by me because he is, and always will be the heart of this band. Kunst finds KMFDM continuing in what I feel is a streak of superior albums (from Tohuvabohu to present), with quality electro-industrial rockers and club stompers. I remain beyond impressed with Sascha's knack for frenzied songwriting.

While not as experimental as pre-MDFMK records, Kunst is still nonetheless solid. I still think WTF! is an overall better album, but Kunst has an overall groove that harkens to their Money days, while synthpunk numbers like Pseudocide reminds me of Drug Against War in it's delivery. Furthermore, this time around it seems Sascha has switched whatever type of drum programming he uses as on here the beats don't BLAST you over the head - they feel vintage, but still deep and hard. The guitars are also not as up front, giving the synth and bass some room to breathe. The synths themselves are also lovely and vintage sounding (Sascha said long ago that he preferred analog synths and triggers). As a fan of Legion Within, I really dig Next Big Thing and think William Wilson's Peter Murphy -esque vocals work incredibly well with KMFDM's music and gives it a darker flavor. It's one of the fastest songs on the album. The Mess You Made features vocals and some instrumentation from Swedish group Morlocks, that Sascha took a liking to recently. Definitely the most unique song on the album and my second favorite. Other highlights are the catchy I Heart Not, Pussy Riot, and Pseudocide - which takes the cake for me. My least favorite is actually the title track. As clever as it is that Sascha is name dropping past songs, it still comes off as silly. Besides, lyrically he has done similar things in the past so it doesn't seem...necessary? That's just me though.

Not much else to say, and that's not a bad thing. Its one of KMFDM's better albums, and my second favorite since they have been back with Attak. High production values, guest vocals, syncopated guitars & synth, Sascha's humor - all can be found here. If anything, I feel this album is definitely a tribute to some of their 90's material, but without a good portion of that era's experimentation.

Must have industrial album of 2013. There are not many industrial mainstays left, I'm glad Sascha is looking towards the future. It's not over yet!

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually Pretty Solid 28 Feb 2013
By Anonymous67 - Published on Amazon.com
I'm going to be honest, I haven't really enjoyed a KMFDM album since WWIII, which I only kind of liked, but KUNST is actually pretty decent. None of the songs drag and each is diversified. The album has a pretty good flow and range. And the ultra-heavy beat is featured prominently and appropriately on this album, more so then the past couple of release which weren't really my cup of tea. Parts of KUNST are very symbols-esque which is very welcome as far as I'm concerned.

Now if you are a brand new KMFDM fan reading this, I would suggest you go buy Symbols, Nihil and Angst before getting anything else. And if you are a long time KMFDM fan, I would recommend adding KUNST to your collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Longtime fan. Fed Up Finally. 8 Jan 2014
By C. Colin Schultheis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've been a longtime fan of KMFDM, from about the early 90's until present.
And, as any longtime fan of KMFDM will gladly admit... KMFDM can often be gratingly self-promoting. These past few albums have felt very hollow to me and the self-promotion has become increasingly prevalent and noticable. I just can't help but wonder if he's run out of ideas... Heck, they brag in the song that they've been doing this for 29 years and talk about continuity... WTH is this, a KMFDM commercial? Give me a break.

I also really don't like that Lucia's taken center stage. (Lucia was, by the way, hot and amazing in her solo act 'Drill') A song in recent memory "Strut" is a deplorable and disgusting song that is divergent from anything they've ever done... basically Captain K got whipped into putting a "GIRL POWER" song on his album. The trend continues with P*ssy Riot.... terrible song on this album, and one of the biggest dumps I've ever heard from a band that I really liked.

That being said, there have been a couple really really awesome tracks over the past couple albums. Generally speaking, I can always find 1 really good one. Not so in this one.

The very first song is an unimaginative piece of garbage. All Sascha does is say the names of a ton of songs KMFDM previously released, along with mocking the wrongly-interpreted meaning to their name (Kill Mthr Fkn Depeche Mode) and has largely recycled beats throughout.

They've been so horrible lately that I often question how much I liked them to begin with... I think of albums like NIHIL, Money, Symbols, Angst, Naive.... heck ADIOS was even passable (marginally). I could even hang with the MDFMK, if only for Torpedoes and Witch Hunt.

This album is a putrescent mess of mailed-in garbage that combines a lack of imagination with lip service to a spoiled girlfriend and exposes the void that was left when the MDFMK debacle came to be due to departures.

If you like KMFDM's newer stuff, great. I disagree with you, but great.

However, if you are a fan of their older stuff and are just looking to see what they're up to? Pass.

5.0 out of 5 stars KMFDM is the apotheosis of music 27 Mar 2013
By Joshua Powers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is amazing, I love it. Having seen some of the tracks performed live recently just gives it that extra kick when listening. If you're lusting for the ultra heavy beat... buy the album and support Sascha.

5.0 out of 5 stars KMFDM Sucks 1 Dec 2013
By The Bungler - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
KMFDM makes me want to ride an armored giraffe through the city while recklessly wielding a chainsaw.

Random tidbit: When I was visiting a friend in a foreign country, Captain K bought me a beer. I was 15 and had no idea who he was as he was just chilling in this bar alone. Been a fan ever since.

KMFDM promotes underage drinking.
