KMFDM continues to keep it real for you as HYËNA proves to be among the group's leanest and meanest efforts, feeding fuel to the fury!
KMFDM has forged its own singular path over the course of 38+ years, refining & redefining the parameters of modern music, never missing the opportunity to address the social & political zeitgeist in brazen, belligerent, & boisterous fashion. HYÃNA marks the 22nd studio album from the Ultra Heavy Beat, & what title could be more appropriate as the band laughs mockingly at the frayed & frantic state of world affairs.
Driven by the vicious & virulent vocal onslaught of founder Sascha 'KÃ¤pt'n K' Konietzko & Lucia Cifarelli, the aural & angular guitar wizardry of Andee Blacksugar, & the forceful percussive thrust of Andy Selway, HYÃNA blasts through the speakers with the force of a napalm airstrike. From the hip-thrusting rock & roll swagger of 'BLACK HOLE,' the in-your-face industrial/rock of 'LIQUOR FISH & CIGARETTES,' & the funky hip-hop overtones of 'ROCK'N'ROLL MONSTER,' to the punky thrash metal fury of 'BLINDFACE,' the sardonic blackgrass whimsy of 'DELUDED DESPERATE DANGEROUS & DUMB,' & the irresistibly danceable electro of 'HYÃNA' - KMFDM remains as vital as ever, never afraid to assimilate any musical style, all the while keeping the lyrical talons sharpened & poised to strike against any & all injustice. Several members of the KMFDM family return to leave their indelible marks on HYÃNA, like guitarist Jules Hodgson, rapper Andrew 'Ocelot' Lindsley, & Bruce Breckenfeld on the Hammond B3. On top of that, Sissy Misfit appears to add a decidedly venomous digital hardcore flavor to 'ALL WRONG - BUT ALRIGHT,' leaving Kumar Bent to close us out with the familiar yet fresh dub take on a KMFDM classic on 'IN DUB WE TRUST.'
HYÃNA is a maniacal laugh in the face of maniacs who assume control, desperately trying to convince you that what you see, what you hear, what you read is not real - don't you believe it! Nearly four decades on, KMFDM continues to keep it real for you as HYÃNA proves to be among the group's leanest & meanest efforts, feeding fuel to the fury!
