T. Raumschmiere I Tank U
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Shitkatapult
In complete denial that glam rock and digital hardcore went the way of Y2K, Berlin’s Marco “T. Raumschmiere” Haas still bashes it out like the apocalypse is nigh. On this 11-track collaborator-heavy follow-up to 2005’s Blitzkrieg Pop Haas again orchestrates techno as thrash (“Brenner”) and post-schaffle beats as EBM stormers (“The Front Row Is Not for the Fragile!!”). There’s always something as anachronistic and adrenalized astride the corroded trills (“Cracking a Smile”), furthering the staccato outbursts of Nothing Records circa 1996. “Animal Territory” features the Puppetmastaz, a crew whose blunted, somewhat cartoonish delivery rides upfront dissonance like prime Cypress Hill, while “E” reminds that T. Raumschmiere has been oscillating electrohaus synths longer than nouveau ’ed bangers.
