Ratzekahl - Haare Ab

DIY - CD - 34:00


1111_ratzekahl.pngHaare Ab is debut album (or better to say demo) of band called Ratzekahl which you may know under the name Grandmaster Jay and which have already released one demo called Was Soll Maximal Schief Gehen? (they´ve done couple of videos which can be found on youtube but you should have patience because Grandmaster Jay is also some kind of rapper :)). Demo is packed in DVD cover and it is limited to 50 pieces. CD looks like vinyl and it contains 12 songs in German. Even it is demo (according to the cover) the sound and especially music quality is really high and there are plenty of melodies, solos and cool singalongs and tunes. Sometimes you may hear also ska/two tone rhythm with keyboards (like in Haare Ab, Alltag – which you can check here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBfWZby550Q or in So land vorbei which is completely sung by girl). Mostly (like in many other German bands) two tone rhythm is changing with the normal one. Most of the songs are in classic rhythm but you will surely find some great hits like Totalschaden with hard start and nice refrain, Von einem anderen Stern with nice vocals of the singer and with slower passages, hard one called Reise zum wahnsinn or rock´n´roll one Ich hab dich Satt. Inside the cover is just paper with short story of the band plus description of the music which take inspiration from 80´s and 90´s classics. I can´t tell you much about the lyrics instead of the last piece Ich mag das Bier. For me really great surprise which will fit into some regular album on regular format with nice booklet artwork because the band 100% worth it. I give 8/9 because of the cover but the music is perfect! If you are interested in details write them on labor101@web.de. Super!

Paris Violence - Pour le Repos de Nos Ames – In Memoriam 1914-

Shout Proud Records/Islika Produktions - EP -


1110_pv_plrdna.jpgBrand new four songs from Paris Violence were released at the end of 2017 on Shout Proud and Islika Produktions. Maxi EP I limited to 150 copies in German edition (50 with CD) and 100 copies in French edition (25 with CD). There were also 50 copies in wooden box (with CD, t-shirt and badge) plus 20 testpressings and 15 promo copies. Title can be translated like For the Peace of our Souls. EP was released as single sided LP (black) with songs on side A and figure of solider (which is also on cover of German edition) on side B. Songs were recorded by Flav but also by Yann (guitar and bass) and Manu (guitar). Whole EP is dedicated to 1st World War and in that way is done also cover which includes (instead of band photos and lyrics) photos from battlefield, medals and quotes from Remarque, emperor Wilhelm, Barbusse, (for someone controversial) Céline and Clemenceau. The cover itself is done as a sleeve. Song titles are Premiére Charge (First Charge), Le Ciel Plonge (Heaven Plunge), La Mort Couleur Garance (something like Crazy Color Death) and Tombé en 18 (Fallen in 18). We should expect again classic style of Paris Violence which means middle rhythm, keyboards and samples and especially intelligent lyrics. I really like last two songs. Fans of Paris Violence (and others also) will be pleased with that EP.
