About this deal

One of the reasons for this may have been that recently they have removed a lot of their older songs from streaming services due to offensive lyrics.

They’re still a band who rely deeply on a gimmick of blending cheesy, sugary Eurodance with standard-issue Warped Tour metalcore, i. Clearly Nico has had a very positive influence on the band and I can see them going from strength to strength in years to come. We Are the Mess, Crystals, The Scene, Rehab and departure of Biesler (2013–2020) [ edit ] Original vocalist Sebastian "Sushi" Biesler performing with the band in 2018.All tracks are written by Daniel Haniß, Pascal Schillo, Kevin Ratajczak, Nico Sallach, except where noted No. Seriously, I spent no less than 5 days listening to this on repeat after it came out and I’m still not sick of it yet. They are often known for their comedic side but this they dealt with, with extreme maturity and seriousness. It’s a much slower pace than ‘ Pump It‘ and ‘ We Got The Moves‘, but manages to bring back the instrumental elements that made those two album openers quality listening.

I’ve included the live version below so you can get an understanding of what you’re in for – and help you get pit ready in anticipation – because you’re gonna need that stamina mates! It illustrates how thin the line is between an album like Tekkno working, and barely being able to hold itself together. As good as the vocals are on this track, there would be a danger if they went down this route in future, they would become a Linkin Park tribute act. Well, it’s a prime example of how I explain this band to new potential fans – it’s like a metalcore version of The Lonely Island meets Weird Al Yankovic.When all is said and done, as the last few notes of the outro ‘Neon’ fade out, what you get is an album that would be good to play at both a nightclub at 2am, as well as in a field in Derbyshire at a certain metal festival. The album flashes by like lightning during the first listen, clocking in at about half an hour in total – it’s over before you know it.

Still, no matter how chaotic things get, every single song eventually becomes an anthem to sing along to, be it in your car, on a boat, or during the looming zombie apocalypse. It shouldn’t be a shock that they’re willing to offer more than the standard smattering of keys or dance progressions, nor does it ever come from a feeling of obligation. Who can blame them, when their songs are incredibly catchy – they get stuck in your head whether you like it or not. And it says it all when Wikipedia don't even mention where they charted for any of their albums in UK and US. Opener “Pump It” immediately sets the tone, with what can only be described as an ’80s aerobics tune.It’s a rarity, definitely, and one which it’s not even clear if they’ll be able to pull off again given their past record, but the results speak for themselves, at the end of the day. My EDM phase may have died a long long time ago, but I can just imagine fluoro wearing Browny losing his mind to this at Summafielddayzeor Global Gathering (I didn’t go to Stereosonicbecause I wasn’t ripped enough). Similarly, ‘Parasite’ takes their older metalcore sound but sprinkles techno and Eurobeat tropes generously to the point where they can’t be appreciated as their own features. Singles such as “Pump It” and “We Got The Moves” proved how the band sounds in 2021, delivering a decent dose of heaviness at the beginning of their new album and an irresistible chorus that makes “Pump It” a true showcase for the versatility in their sound.
