Let's celebrate ten years of Maschinenkrieger kr52 and Disraptor joining forces in their intention to stir up industrial dancefloors big time. On their third album for HANDS they provide lots of rough and rhythmic DJ food, but they also consider some experimentation. rhythm'n'noise the way it's supposed to be: Dirty, hypnotic and thoroughly physical! "rotTEN years" also marks the 5th anniversary of the German duo joining HANDS, which has brought them to the attention of a wide audience and secured them some remarkable success. Their agenda is to make people move – which sure is a noble task when executed as skilfully as they have been doing it. Listening to "rotTEN years" is somehow like watching a kid grow up: Right from the start it reveals its descent from the rhythm noise genre's gene pool – shuffling beats and washes of distortion ("Loading"), a heavy kick drum ("oh My Presents", "Shuffle Dynamics"), inscrutable vocal samples ("Tone") and insane compression levels ("Break Core"). The tempo mostly ranges from fast ("CHM05") over very fast ("Helldone") to insane overdrive ("Hit and Drum"). But as kids grow up, they will extend their range, try to chart new territories, and things get more complicated, too: "1,5 gray" slows down and turns up the impact of the rhythm, "Beltra" sports a substitute melody of highpitched noises resounding in your ears forever and the closing tracks of the album ("Kiitos", "Post MorTEN", "Gallery") are fully drowned in noise mayhem. So for the more adventurous listeners, there are rough edges and digressions found throughout. Nevertheless "rotTEN years" is essentially a dance floor album, powered by a sense for a hypnotic almost-groove and lots of breaks that effectively lighten the mood - be sure to encounter several of these tracks in the clubs!
