SGN PICKS - Best metal/industrial/hard rock of 2009: Rammstein's Liebe Ist Für Alle Da (a highly biased recommendation)

by Maggie Bloodstone - SGN Contributing Writer

Megadeth: You're classic, you own the shit. Slayer: Love ya, don't ever change. Cannibal Corpse (air kiss): You're beautiful, I mean it. BUT ya'll are just going to have to lie down and let the ten-ton Teutonic tremblor known as Rammstein roll right over your asses this year. Why, no, now that you mention it, I haven't heard your new CDs yet, but believe me, I don't have to. Even if you included a fun-size bag of Peruvian Flake in your packaging, you would not be able to equal the pure man-up transgressive potency of Liebe Ist Für Alle Da.

Arguably Rammstein's finest achievement since the sublime Mütter of eight years ago, not only does it feature some of their most vicious riffs, explosive percussion, and contagious melodies in their 15+ years of defying everyone's expectations of What A Metal Band Should Be, it includes vocals that would make a Wagnerian Baritone sound like Mickey Maus and lyrics that are equal parts Trent Reznor and Kurt Weill, steeped in a heady puree of honey and bile. Sehr schön!
