The last few releases have too much twang or goofy cheesy electronics... I hope they can return to the first album and Perstechnique sound.... I have not liked a song of theirs in awhile now. This type of music really has to speak to me when I can't understand the lyrics and the instrumentation is just not what it used to be.
Turmion Kätilöt have confirmed that they will release a new album next spring. The album will carry the name “Dance Panique” and is the band’s 7th studio album. Kätilöt’s previous album “Diskovibrator” went straight to #1 on the Finnish album charts.
I don't see how the new album is too different at all. Some of my friends have been disappointed with the album. It just boggles my mind. The changes in style TK has between albums is very minimal. Less would be doing the AC/DC and this is just development as a band. I like the more aggressive sound of Diskovibrator and the song material is otherwise about the same level as Technodiktator. Except that To Be Contiuned Act 2 is pretty much a track to skip every time. My fave tracks from Technodiktator were Silmät Sumeat and Pyhä Maa. Nimi Kivessä being maybe one of the least favorites. New albums single Hyvissä Höyryissä, Kirottujen Karnevaalit and Sinulle are definitely my stand outs but the others are great too. Kätilöt hasn't really done a band song imo. Though I didn't enjoy the weird instrumentals they had on Pirun Nyrkki.
I'm not telling that Humor on song lyrics is a bad thing, just saying this new TK album Discovibrator has a completely new style for both lyrics (the humor) and the whole sound of the albums is quite different, even when compared to the previous album Techodictator. Where is the tracks similar to Nimi Kivessä for example, extremely catchy tune and probably the best track of newer TK. Or even like Rehtori, or Xonoto (Darling), the albums are just different, for the worse?. Yea sure, I'm a huge fan of old-school TK (Hoitovirhe-USCH) but I like the newer stuff too (Perstechnique, Technodictator). I just don't get the new album.. Also these TK album names these days, they definitely have a thing going on..
I have to agree with dragothica. After Usch their sound has been going downhill. Lyrics aren't as good as they used to be and the same thing happened with the song titles - they just don't have the same kind of impact they used to have. I also liked the simple sound of their old albums more, new material is a clusterfuck of all possible ingredients from a fridge put together. Sometimes it happens to taste good but mostly not. Only thing done better now is that Spellgoth is doing more lyrics.
But this is still a decent album, just nowhere near the level of Hoitovirhe. Hopefully FoD delivers better.
I'm kind of disappointed with the new album. I've listened it through only once, but still I couldn't grasp it at all. Okay, the beat on most of the tracks is really catchy but I just don't get this album, I somewhat despise the lyrics, they aren't same kind of lyrics as older TK albums had, the humor isn't same kind of humor, this is just somewhat serious and few tracks have quite nasty lyrics. There are few highlights though, for example the opener "Kirottujen Karnevaali" is really good song (best on the album?, Old School TK!) and "Sinulle" is the second best, definitely, much like 2 Times Terror track "Vielä joskus". Rest of the tracks.. No I don't like them that much, the last "hidden" track is a complete waste compared to the first part of the "saga", I was kind of expecting a sequel, not a silly instrumental with no point. Honestly my first thought after listening this was "luckily a new Children of Bodom album is released next week". So don't place your expectations too high!.
Great new single from Project Silence, both two tracks are on their youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxXEq_CWIYU&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PLqW9BT5nStMR3c4pJmq4QSKsF8fqzr9ml Best dark industrial metal!
@Wulfshade Lyrics will be helpful to those, who bought album digitally and are not able to buy the album with booklet in their country, or don't want to pay more for buying abroad (like me, I bought on iTunes) :P
