You have to listen to this compilation album with a grain of salt: it is one of the most intense and uncompromisingly brutal albums you'll ever hear in your life! No, it's not a grindcore or a black metal band, it's EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN's most extreme example of TRUE industrial music. The band memebers make "music" out of banging on metal plates, using pneumatic drills, making explotions, and using every possible tool to create pure mayhem. Just imagine this: the "bass drum's" skin is a sheet of metal!!! "Tanz Debil" opens this barrage of noise and the album never lets up. "Kalte Sterne" might sound like a very primitive THE CURE and it is by FAR the album's most "musical" song. No wonder some extreme metal bands took NEUBAUTEN to heart. Although this has NOTHING to do with Metal (maybe punk, in the sense that this IS musical ANARCHY!), the attitude and brutality are very much alike. "Stratigien gegen architechturen" is basically the "Kollaps" album with some few extra tracks, but it's a good thing that, if you like this, also get "Kollaps". For open minded folks only and for people into really weird stuff! Steh auf!
