Description

The verses are metalcore through and through, the chorus is melodic with a hard/rock sound behind Nico’s soft singing, but its David Friedrich who shines in the spotlight with his incredible display of blast beats and frantic drumming throughout. The style of both clean vocalists (no screaming in sight) is undeniable and it even includes a vocal layer that sounds identical to the opening note of the chorus in Avril’s ‘Bite Me’.

On 6 December 2021, the band announced via their Twitter account that they submitted "Pump It" into the German national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, [22] but ultimately were not included in the final list of participants. With tons of energy and fun on board, the band from Castrop-Rauxel delivers an unprecedentedly fulminant metalcore-firework that is second to none. Once again combining everything this band do so well, we’ve got an anthemic chorus of simplistic lyrics that go “I wanna share my love / with everyone around / I wanna spread some love / I’m feeling the beat”; there’s more of a focus on the techno aspects, alongside 80’s inspired synthesisers and catchy screams AND a keytar solo that leads into a juicy breakdown.Spaceman’ (featuring German rapper Finch) has lively techno moments that are contrasted by big metalcore sections and EDM choruses which hail rave culture. At the end of the day, they’re most defined as a loud, bawdy, horny crew, and lean into all of that accordingly.

This is obviously half the point, and the band are clearly enjoying themselves (and, indeed, trolling those who don't dig it). Yes, the critic hat unfortunately does have to come back on and the party has to stall, because for as entertaining as Tekkno is, that’s not enough to fully slide it outside the realm of issues that hold it back from much more. All of the aforementioned elements flow quite nicely into ‘ We Got The Moves‘ which could essentially be described as a sibling of ‘ Pump It‘, only this time, the heavy chuggy guitars are the main focus outside of the chorus, alongside forceful drums, hard-style synth beats and easily accessible screams and cleans that go hand in hand like a seasoned moshpit fiend and their pop music loving partner at a local show. Parasite‘ keeps the rave cave phase alive with an intro that takes me back to listening to the likes of The Prodigy, Deadmau5 and Tiesto before opening up for the chorus with cleans and screams surrounded by bassy synth and background riffs. Metalcore (or metallic hardcore) is a fusion music genre that combines elements of extreme metal and hardcore punk.

It’s great to know that the group’s comedic edge hasn’t been lost on this record either (one quick look at the single cover art for ‘We Got The Moves’ or the music video for ‘Pump It’ should give you a rough idea at what their humour is like) and it pairs well with the rave influence of their sound – because, let’s be real here, what use is it to listen to dance music and not have fun while you do so? Since then, they auditioned to represent Germany in Eurovision this year, and had every piece of music they’ve released become wildly successful, an absolute demolition of their peers’ achievements (or lack thereof) about a decade ago.
