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.

KMFDM have been going for the best part of two decades now, apart from a brief period a couple of years ago when they decided to disband then reform as the cunningly named MDFMK. The were soon back to normal, though. However, this the best of their large back catalogue, in my opinion anyway, comes from 1995 before all that silliness took place. Nihil is the record that contains the band's all-time best, as well as best known song 'Juke Joint Jezebel', as featured on the soundtracks to both Bad Boys and Mortal Kombat. The rest of the record follows pretty much the same formula as that stand-out song, with the album blending Industrial, Metal, Rock, Techno, Dance and Funk brilliantly and to stunning effect. Shimmering electronics, pounding drums, ripping guitar riffs, it's all here and it's in the finest blend that the band have so far managed to date. Other notable moments on the record include opener 'Ultra' and 'Brute' although there isn't really a weak moment on it. Long-time KMFDM collaborator and Pig vocalist Raymond Watts was drafted in by mainman Sascha Konietzko to sing on the majority of the album and he does a tremendous job, with his dark intense voice perfectly suiting the industrial madness going on all around him. Everyone should own several KMFDM albums as they're a simply brilliant, constantly evolving band, but if you could only pick one to have, it would have to be Nihil.

This is my favourite cd by KMFDM and it is the album that got me into this band. Nihil is 10 pulsing, head banging tracks, which see a variety of electronic beats and heavy guitar riffs mixed with pounding drumming. This album is truly 'Industrial Metal'. The most popular choice of this album is the track 'Juke Joint Jezebel', which contains both electronic and normal drumming, and heavy guitar chords and riffs. This song appeared on Mortal Kombat the movie in the fight between Kano and Sonya. Ultra is also a favourite, appearing on the manga Movie, Street Fighter 2 in the fight between Vega and Chun-Li. All in all, Nihil is worth the 5 stars I have given, and remains to one of their most popular albums.

Keiner Macht Fur Dich Mehr 13 Jan. 2001
By "goolian" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was my first KMFDM purchase after tasting a delectable treat of "Ultra" from the Manga Entertainment trailer video in the 10th grade. I just had to check this band out...
What I got was a total electro-thrash-noise symphony that you can dance your ass off to. I totally fell in love with KMFDM and bought their other albums after this. "Nihil" stands as KMFDM's hardest album, with more guitars, sampling, kling-klangs, noise, and screams than you can shake a stick at.
I lost my KMFDM virginity to the opening track, "Ultra." It stands as an orchestra of angst and screams, with hardcore electronic composition, ultra heavy beats, and sick, seeping lyrics. "Juke Joint Jezebel" is perhaps the most intelligent track on this record, with blazing female choruses and industrial percussions galore. "Flesh" and "Brute" are most excellent performances by Raymond Watts, with gutsy metal guitars by Gunther Schulz and Mark Durante. "Beast" is a spooky club-worthy track with violent lyrics, smart electronics, and one hell of a chorus. "Revolution" is a thrash-fest with the classic industrial beats, with a notable performance by my man En Esch. "Disobedience" is a brilliant crossover track that mixes the heavy industrial beats with metal and ska...must love those trumpets! The album is closed off with the speedy joy-gasm "Trust."
This KMFDM record stands out like a sore thumb amongst the rest of the KMFDM albums. It is the most original, beautifully crafted piece of work that KMFDM had to offer to the industrial community. Do yourself a favor and buy this masterpiece. You surely won't regret it!

I never dreamed it would come to this... 15 July 2005
By Nails in My Head - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
*sigh*

It is truly depressing to see this staple of industrial and 90's rock in such bad shape. Out of print for 7 years, and going for 30 bucks a pop...

But, inflated price aside, this album is the most important in the KMFDM catalouge. In the industrial catalouge. In the 90's music catalouge. Because it proved that electronic rock could be something other than "The Downward Spiral". It could actually ROCK as well as mope.

The entire album is amsterfully produced, with the guitar drifting in and out seamlessly. It manages to be poundingly heavy without a single organic instrument. And the vocals range from growls to moans to groans to shreiks to wails to serenades all in one song. The are more hooks in JJJ alone than China could hang all of its coats on. And every track is perfect. Ultra is a brilliant intro, JJJ is just soo catchy, Flesh is a downright thrsh-fest, Beast has great lyrics and a fun guitar solo/conversation, Terror uses perfect sampling, and it goes on, with such ingenuity...

Buy it.

It's about time! 24 Jun. 2007
By CRAZOTOLOGY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Here it is...Nihil re-released, digitally remastered, new label, and same great songs...only now they sound louder and better. Remember, re-mastered is not the same as remixed. It's still the same songs only now they sound like they just came out this year. The qaulity is excellent and up to par with anything else you would find on a recent Metropolis record. Ok, now about the CD, ...great KMFDM CD, with Raymond Watts (PIG) on vocals. Includes the famous KMFDM hit "Juke Joint Jezebel", and the rest of the songs are mighty cool as well. Great album for fans of Foetus, 16 Volt, Sister Machine Gun, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Nine Inch Nails, and early Marilyn Manson.

Here is a breif summury of the tracks:

1. ULTRA - powerful electro industrial anthem to kick the album into gear. It's a song about setting yourself apart from a conformist society and feeling the true passion of your freedom.

2. JUKE JOINT JEZEBEL - A huge KMFDM hit in the industrial dance clubs. The lyrics are open to interpretation, but IMO, it's about drugs.

3. FLESH - A metal song that seems to be about self forgiveness.

4. Beast - starts off with these acidic sounding organs that clashes into coldwave electronica and rock. Lyrics open to interpretation, IMO, a song about self revelation and being proud of your dark side.

5. TERROR - a verry industrial sounding rock song that uses a political metaphor.

6. SEARCH AND DESTROY - Another industrial metal anthem to non comformity.

7. DISOBEDIENCE - A melodic downbeat industrial song that boosts into some 80's hairband sounding guitars. Lyrics about being oblivious and blind to the a world that is socially inept.

8. REVOLUTION - Coldwave beats put to lyrics about self becoming after a near death situation.

9. BRUTE - Coldwave electronica about a drug and alcohol downward spiral that evoles into a mutation of deacadent self love.

10. TRUST - Another industrial metal anthem to non conformity and self revelation.

11. NIHIL - Instrumental track that would please fans of industrial noise music.

A dark turn for KMFDM 1 May 2003
By E. Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another CD to add to your collection, 'Nihil' has a dark tone to it, yet succeeds in many ways. The choruses are great, the lyrics are awesome, and the instruments are cool. Raymond 'Pig' Watts take over most of the album with such songs as 'Brute' and 'Juke-Joint Jezebel'. 'Juke-Joint Jezebel' is supposedly one of their most known songs, and is really great. 'Disobedience' is also great and surprisingly enough, there are Saxophones and Trombones in the song! But these instruments fit perfectly well with the song. 'Brute' is a song I'm pretty sure I've heard on the radio, and is so great. 'Terror' is about terrosits, and their wrong doings. This song has a great beat,too. 'Trust' is a great end song (which KMFDM is good at) with vocals by Sascha K. and Dorona Alberti. The song has a great rythym to it, and is fast paced, and get ready for the blaring sound of the beginning of the hidden track near the end. 'Nihil' is KMFDM's darkest, most tormented sounding album, and is one of their best yet.

An industrial classic 29 Dec. 2007
By E. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of all the industrial bands that I have been listening to on a regular basis for the last several years now, KMFDM is the industrial band I have been into for the longest time. NIHIL is easily my favorite KMFDM album (w/Raymond Watts). The first song I have ever heard by KMFDM is the popular single "Juke Joint Jezebel" back in 1997. A few years later I finally bought the album NIHIL which included the song. I recently scquired a copy of the newly remastered version of NIHIL. This new version sounds a hundred times better than the original version.

The music on NIHIL sounds as fresh to me as the first time I had heard it in 1999. The only difference is that this album was given a proper remastering treatment. NIHIL is flawless to me. Songs like "Search & Destroy" and "Brute" are brutal and aggressive, the way I like my industrial music. The inclusion of a horn section on "Disobedience" is brilliant on Sascha's part. Industrial music is the last place you would hear a horn section on but it works here on the song. The last track on the cd is a bonus instrumental track simply called "Nihil" which wasn't on the original version. It is a nice way to close out one of my personal favorite KMFDM cds. I strongly recommend for any industrial fan who wants to check out early KMFDM to check out the newly remastered NIHIL. This is why I love this genre and KMFDM.
