EISFABRIK - Automatisierung in der Eisfabrik (CD)
Sold-out concert halls and the entry of the last longplayer „Kryothermalmusik aus der Eisfabrik“ into the official German Album Charts clearly prove the rapid rise of the four icemen. With their eighth physical release in five years, the Eisfabrik once again reveals their broad spectrum of sound aesthetics.
Ten tracks including five previously unpublished songs and various remixes impressively show how productive this band is. With a total playing time of just under forty minutes, they follow up their last album with „Automatisierung in der Eisfabrik“ just seven months later. The „No Crop Without Seeds“mix of „Grim Reaper“ introduces this release with a proper club character and leaves no doubt where the journey is to go here.
It is hard to believe that the second track „We Don’t Care“ in the acoustic guitar mix is by the same band, but at the same time it also suggests to any doubters the versatility of the protagonists Thomas and Barth-Ricklefs. The other eight tracks behave in the same way, so that this EP should be something not only for Eisfabrik fans, but also for every inclined lover of melancholic harmonies.
