Klangkuenstler presents 'Fight Club Vol. 1', Outworld's 7th release and second split EP, assembling ve fast-punching belters by an international roster of artists, who collectively sound like the Project Mayhem army ready for the end of days. Leading them into the ring is the man himself: On 'In Ketten Gelegt', Klangkuenstler juxtaposes a message of liberation with the pitchblack darkness of his trademark sound, crafting a merciless march towards the edge of oblivion in the process. Next up, Exil der Schatten's bloodthirsty synths and impressive energy-shifts mark out 'Dystopian Warfare' as the perfect club driller. Whatever's left standing is trampled down by the devil's thumping gabber kicks on DLV's 'Der Teufel' (Gazometer '98 Mix), before getting ground to dust by BLICZ's nervously jacking, tough-as- nails groove of 'Still in Hell'. Absolution, struggling against the high-speed framework on GEERSON's 'Expect of Something', closes the EP and brings the words of Tyler Durden to mind, ringing ever more true in 2021: 'Only after disaster can we be resurrected.'
