Product Description

You have to hand it to Rudy Ratzinger, a.k.a. :Wumpscut:--oblivious to trends in late-'90s electronic dance music, he continues to carry a torch for good old-fashioned gothic-industrial. He does it so well, it's hard to fault him--indeed, the black-clad faithful look to him as something of a god. Eevil Young Flesh, his fourth full-length, will not disappoint those fans, no matter how formulaic a release it is. The rhythms are solid, propulsive, and infectious; the synth work is appropriately sinister; Ratzinger's vocals (alternately German and English) growl and shout at just the right intensity; and the film samples (sci-fi and porn, natch) are expertly placed. Ratzinger's obsession with death pervades the album (the insert even contains photos of past serial killers), but there are moments of great beauty, particularly on the violin-accented instrumental track "Outside," the military-grooved "Wasted Dreams," and "Tell Me Now," Ratzinger's German-language duet with the ethereal-voiced Lilli Stankowski. --Steve Landau

Taken on its own 'Eevil Young Flesh' is a very solid album of hard industrial dance. There are probably 4 great dancefloor songs and 1 excellent instrumental. However the issue reallly isn't the song quality, it's just that at this point in Rudy's career this has become a bit of a formula and it feels a little trite for long-time fans. (Note: I actually wrote the review of this album for 'Outburn Magazine' years ago and said basically the same thing).
The album opens with the fast-paced, frantic "Wulf" - German for "Wolf". It's interesting to notice that this is the only track with a German title and it is sung in English, while all of the other tracks are listed in English while sung in German - quirky. The amazing synth hook in this song cuts through the mix like few others I have ever heard.
The next track is "Deadmaker", a turbocharged, psychotic thrill-ride not fit for the faint of heart. If you really love this song you can get the "Totmacher" remixes which feature this song remixes by a slew of major electro acts. "DM" is followed directly by the next dance slammer "I Want You". This one features the clearest beat on the disc and razor sharp electro lines. The only drawback is that the porno samples at the beginning are lame, immature and don't fit the songs theme of fully possessing another person... it's just kind of a snore of a way to open such a good song.
Later on the disc you'll find "Wasted Dreams", a bitter tale of a person looking to reclaim past losses. Further on is the hauntingly beautiful "Outside", likely the best instrumental :W: has done since "Thorns".
In sum, this is a great release that new fans will likely love. It's an easy entry point. Still it is not one of his best 3 albums and at the time it felt like he needed more of a step forward with his sound and this was firmly treading on familiar ground. However, that is high quality ground.

:wumpscut: does many things for many people, depending on how much they pay attention to the tracks and how strongly they feel on certain morbid matters. On the outside the beats sometimes move an audience and do it rather well, with a very accessible beat founding some works and a very enticing build manufacturing others, and that suits some listeners. Others delve in a little deeper, hear the Germanic words flowing to the beat and the voxing coming through, and that perhaps disturbs them. The way the voxing sounds and the deep wells of bitterness they seem to be derived from sometimes have that way with people, making them think that its perhaps morbid. But for those others that dive into the lyrical content and find out that it is actually more disturbed than simply the voxing and the sounds because the content truly is dark, there�s a plethora of thoughts to choose from. And, personally, I think I�ve chosen to buy quite few albums because its just too good to pass up.
Boeses Junges Flisch (Evil Young Flesh) perhaps isn�t the most easily accessible work in the :wumpscut� catalog for everyone because (1) most of the vocals are in German and (2) because its an deliciously depraved byproduct. For some reason the language barrier bothers some people, them not enjoying stuff they can�t sing along to stateside, and they won�t purchase it. They have to be able to sing along in their native tongue, not really getting into the songs and not really noticing the translations housed directly inside the case. And that�s understandable, albeit limiting.

This definitely is the weakest :Wumpscut: record so far. His previous output Embryodead like Eevil Young Flesh did not revolutionize EBM, but at least it was heavy, evil and violent. EYF is none of this. The lyrics (like always) are placative, the groove is poor and the ballad "Sag es jetzt" causes pain in my ears because of the gothic-like female vocals and the far too simple music. But there are some (yet few) really good songs on the CD, like "Flucht" and "Zerstoerte Traeume", which I am sure will be played in EBM-Clubs regularly. But the new :W: definitely lacks the aggressiveness, the groove and the ability to create a gloomy atmosphere which he had in former times. And there is absolutely NOTHING on this record which we haven't heard on other records earlier. Remember, Rudy: Wer zu spät kommt, den bestraft das Leben.

Maybe it's just because this was my first Wumpscut album, but I really don't think that it is as bad as many make it out to be. Quite the contrary, actually, I enjoyed it immensely.
No, it's not dark and Evil, but some of the music is truly amazing. Outside in particular stands out to me for its beauty. Escape is an awesome, high-energy song. Eternal is another favourite with is full, thumping sound. Longing is a favourite, especially after a few listens. I used to enjoy Wasted Dreams, but I got sick of it quite quickly. I found Witches' Dance to be quite a weak point on the album - incredibly repetitive.
Overall it is this album that turned me on to Wumpscut. I can't say that Wumpscut is amazingly diverse or anything, but the depth and quality of the sound delivered makes them one of my favourites.
