With their EP "Endzeit" a few rebellious young musicians, calling themselves 'mundtot' - present a debut that really shows some of the old hands in the gothic scene what's what.
That the roots of the Munich-based trio comes from post-punk and new wave is really unmistakable. Likewise, they mix elegiac wavy guitars with synthpop-hooks and aggressive punk-rhythms with pounding industrial elements.
In which they are indifferent building on the roots of a music - that hardly anyone knows today - expanding this with modern Industrial-Gothrock, they create an exciting, raw, uncut and rebellious music.
The vocals move smart on the line between accusatory sadness and aggressive rebellion.
For 'mundtot' are mainly corporate and time-critical. They have something to say.
Their anger means power, energy and creativity. In a time where some people have long since resigned or just use their aggression to scare little girls, 'mundtot' brings back some rebellious fresh air into the scene. Perhaps a privilege of youth? In any case, damn catchy and awesome.
