LET'S DANCE | einstürzende neubauten @ muffathalle

There are many bands that I listen to now and that remind me of my childhood big times simply because my parents would listen to them all the time. This applies to Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, New Order, The Cure and also to Einstürzende Neubauten, however it's slightly different when it comes to them. When I was little, I was actually scared of their music. It was too industrial and demonic in my childish point of view and I was terrified by the 'monster' in the Sabrina video. Some months ago, I randomly stumbled upon Alles and it somehow started feeling soothing. And then the love affair began.

EN just released a WWI-themed album called Lament and they are on tour with it now. It is not a regular music tour though, the shows are more of art performances / theatre plays than just regular concerts. And I was lucky enough to see one of the shows this Sunday in Munich, just before going to CZ for a while.

It was unbelievably great, so great that I actually cried because of how strong and beautiful the whole performance was. The WWI atmosphere was in every bit of the concert hall, emphasized by the screeching sounds of metal, chains and other unusual instruments EN use. Hands down, even though I didn't understand every single thing as it was mostly in German, it was one of the best live acts I've ever seen, seriously.
