So, `House of Lies'? Well, we begin with `Prolog', a tersely spoken monologue interspersed with bursts of cacophonous noise made from scraping, falling and generally apocalyptic industrial detritus. Blixa Bargold (their singer, who also used to moonlight as guitarist for Nick Cave's Bad Seeds) intones in German `we could but...' and each time his answer is obliterated, as if any aspiring political manifesto-making is a waste of effort, doomed to failure. This then fades into `Feurio' a word with meanings of fire and fury, in which the case of Marinus Van Der Lubbe, a possible perpetrator of the Reichstag Fire, is reconsidered, set against a pulsing beat which breeds a sense of impatient intensity. Then, by way of counterpoint, we are treated to a `A Chair in Hell', a lilting European folk tune, driven along by handclaps and strumming. And then more insistent percussive structures emerge with the orchestral `House of Lies', taking us into grandiose territory as Blixa forcefully intones a choral epic which finally dissipates to the sounds of broken glass. Never before has the evocation of devastation sounded so beautiful.
`Epilog' ends this particular suite of related pieces, before the trilogy of Fiat Lux/Maifestpiele/Hirnlego begins with the sounds of buzzing bumblebees.Read more ›

This album features a folky number 'Stuhle in der holle' which is much less abraisive than most of their tracks. The title track is probaly the stand out as rhymically it is fantastic.
The second side (on vinyl) allegedlly is recorded during a riot and it certainly sounds like FM Einheit has been wandering around in a riot taping it.
If you like Rammstein but find them a bit soft, you could do worse than this.

Neubauten used found sounds, recorded their own, plundered folk and then smelted something new from the assembled debris. Read morePublished on 3 Nov. 2010 by Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles
