Hanzel und Gretyl
September 2005
Released: 2005, Metropolis
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: MetalGeorge

Ah, this is something I haven¡¦t heard in a while¡Ksome kickass INDUSTRIAL METAL!! Naturally, anything of this ilk will immediately be compared to a band like Ministry or Marilyn Manson, yet SCHEIZZMESSISAH possesses a unique charisma and devious brutality which pushes Hanzel und Gretyl heads and shoulders above many of their contemporaries.

With a defiantly militant and Teutonic persona-both visually and musically-HUG (haha, like that acronym? ƒº), are not for the squeamish or easily offended, but rather for the angel dust sniffin¡¦, goth clubbin¡¦, PVC wearin¡¦ folk amongst us who desire a new soundtrack for their Domme/Slave sex session. (hands anyone? Hands?)

Well, you can count me in, because SCHEIZZMESSIZAH is a eleven track journey into Thrash/Industrial hell, and reminds me strongly of when I used to rock out to KMFDM and Skrew back in my formative years. There are riffs to beat the band (or gimp) to, and a sinister, distorted vokill presence, all laid atop a driving, mechanical beat, the end result of which is quite addictive, and highly enjoyable!

That said, this is a recommended release if you¡¦re remotely into this style, as you¡¦ll find few better who perform it nowadays than Hanzel und Gretyl, so check it out!
