Deutsch Nepal - _Erotikon_
(Cold Meat Industry, 2006)
by: Quentin Kalis (8 out of 10)
Despite their legendary status amongst the electronic underground and my increasing interest in all things weird and eclectic, this is the first time that I have been exposed to this act, barring a song on the _Fuck the Modern World_ compilation. Consequently, I am unable to compare this to his previous work. This is the project of one Liam Baby Doll, who seemingly indulges in all aspects of post-industrial, from martial atmospherics, through to ritual numbers and industrial dance antics. (Noticeably missing are the harsh sounds of power electronics, but this duty has been delegated to his Frozen Faces project.)

Some rather nasal-sounding vocals are present, but the emphasis is of course on the music. Some psychedelic effects and tribal styled percussion, which often act as an anchor, also surface intermittently and are apparently the definitive aspects of Deutsch Nepal. The dominant theme appears to be darker aspects of human sexuality, as suggested by titles such as "Blowjob Parasite" and "Rape Park Junktion".

I am unable to say whether it is a return to form, but _Erotikon_ is certainly worthy in its own right.
