After 15 years in the industrial-rock trenches, KMFDM were going nowhere fast. So they reversed their name and reinvented…close to nothing. Self-titled MDFMK is a vaguely lighter version of their thrash-metal guitars, jackhammer drums, grunting of lyrics like ”there is no justice, no future for you.” One bright spot: New singer Lucia Cifarelli’s Gothic panache turns ”Stare at the Sun” into a delicious, Garbage-like anthem.
