With our sunglasses on and grinning the ever-present crisis in the face with a „f\*\*k the world“-mentality, we are drinking champagne on the ruins of the old world order! On their new album, Berlin-based DIN [A] Tod perfectly capture the zeitgeist at the end of the last decade of the new millennium: “Westwerk” fuses the spirit of the early Eighties with the amiable madness of the Electroclash-sound from Germany’s capital. The result is a versatile No-Future-Pop-music-experience with a profound club-appeal. The ambitious mix of minimal Electro sounds with meandering guitar- and bass-lines mingled with a distinct coolness sounds even more compact and mature than the group’s critically-acclaimed first outing. “Westwerk” is synonymous with hit tunes that have been stripped down to their bare essentials, breathe the cold air of The Sisters Of Mercy and feature the minimalist groove of bands like Joy Division or New Order on a massive, electronic beat foundation. The songs are further enhanced by the interplay of Sven Claussen’s dark, nihilistic vocals and Claudia Fasold’s fresh girlie-appeal. On “Westwerk”, the group drives its modernized Post Punk sound to utter perfection – and their electrified cover version of Joy Division’s early anthem “Warsaw” fits into the picture perfectly. DIN [A] Tod sport just the sort of detached, Berlin-infused sound of a cold, anonymous metropolis that has its finger right on the pulse of the times.
