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.
