Die Hölle muss warten
Eisbrecher are a minor-league Rammstein -- which is to say that, though their industrial metal goose-stepping is not distinctive in terms of lederhosen-clad perversity or over-the-top, Alps-scaling power, it's still Teutonic enough that this album charted at No. 3 in Germany. There are occasional semi-symphonic bits, some cute dinky synths, a lecherous invitation to "Tanz Mit Mir," a few too many morose croons, and one apparent attempt ("Exzess Express") at a Deutsche Bahn rhythm. So, not the best wurst -- but not the worst.
