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.
