New Album Industrial Rock, Noise Die Rostigen Löffel What we have here is a German band by the name of Die Rostigen Löffel with an album that released back in July 2013. I'm sad to say that the title of the album is just as creative as a lot of the songs they've created, which really, really aren't all too great. Don't get me wrong by saying that; the songs aren't absolutely terrible in any manner, and I can tell that what I'm listening to is music and not just garbage, My main problem with the album is the fact that a lot of the beats are extremely repetitive in the songs. And, that's saying a lot considering most of the songs are less than three minutes. This album really serves more as a demo than anything, showing off the talents of the band but never really pushes through with anything too great. The songs are within the industrial rock and noise category, which does make for an interesting mix at some points. However, at others, it's just pretty boring. For example, the song laziness is a decent slow track, backed by the soft, but still growling voice of the lead singer. However, what spoils the song is when the lead singer says, "Fuck you," as it's really the only thing you'll remember from the whole track. But then there are tracks that have no good qualities about them, such as eat your brain. It tries to play off as an electronic song, but the electronics just aren't that great and the vocals within the song aren't the best on the album either. So, in the end, I'm looking at a near 50:50 album. While some of it's alright, you still have some of it being pretty awful. There is talent in this band; I can easily see that. But, until they really get it right, I can't say I have all too much praise for them. 350

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
