Kreuzweg Ost - _Iron Avantgarde_
(Napalm Records, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
Trying to find words to describe the work of the bizarre project Kreuzweg OST is hard enough. Trying to get through the disc in one listen is even harder. From the minds of Silenius (Summoning) and Martin Shirenc (Pungent Stench) comes Kreuzweg OST, a militaristic soundtrack that in the band's own words is an "interpretation of the themes and facts surrounding World War II". Using samples from both English and German propaganda during the war (as well as hundreds of other loud and odd samples -- even a cool "Dark City" clip), Kreuzweg OST roll onward for more than 65 minutes of brutality and sheer sonic mayhem. Be prepared! I can see how many might be confused about the work of the band and/or put off by all of the sounds and happenings throughout the disc. But those who have enough patience to sit through a full spin shall be rewarded with a truly unique experience that'll surely stand out from everything else they have heard in the past few months.
