KMFDM is not just a random jumble of letters chosen by a group of people to represent their band. KMFDM in fact is an acronym for Kein Mehrheit Fur Die Mitleid. If you’re wondering what the heck this German phrase means just look at the title of this blog.
Techno/electronic and heavy metal are categories of music that are very specific. You either love the genres or you hate them, there aren’t a lot of in-betweeners. KMFDM decided to throw caution to the wind and pioneered the crossover genre referred to as industrial rock in 1984 when the band formed. Becoming one of the first industrial rock groups isn’t the only unique thing about KMFDM that we love. The band also features male and female vocals.
29 is ancient in band years and KMFDM has certainly been around the block. Their most recent works titled WTF?! dropped in 2011 and is their 30th album to date when including live and greatest hits albums. Many fans claim WTF?! to be their best album in the decade.
Metaldominion.com described WTF?! as: “an album containing 11 songs of hard-edged brutality that stabs you in the ear with a persistency that to be honest has very few equals around at the moment.”
KMFDM will be playing in the northwest on March 8th at Star Theater in Portland, March 29th at The Knitting Factory in Boise and March 30th at Showbox SoDo in Seattle.
