Hey guys, yes, the newest post is coming in right for you, yes, and this time it is again (I think so since December 2017 the first) early morning post that I'm doing right after getting out of bed, right before eating breakfast, getting ready for the day, and starting off to work. I don't know how much I will be able to still get done today and already tomorrow I will be up'n'away and will be attending the "THIS IS SKA" festival so after this very one here maybe don't expect that much before next week (or we will see); okay, and after this very one here is an early morning post it's by far enough of the introducing smalltalk and now finally direct right and straight into the action, yes, so here we go: Here's my record-review on the new SCHLUSSAKKORD full-length-record "SPIELER ODER BAUER" (not sure right now if it there debut or not but Maybe that's also not that important right now and right here), a to me totally new band, released still pretty to very recently this year on CD via the to me still very new record-label "METALSPIESSER RECORDS" that also released (also still pretty recently) the strong "LASS UNS FLIEGEN" full-length-album of/by the sympathic FORMLOS that I reviewed all-in-all not that long ago also up here, and also SCHLUSSAKKORD here on and with "SPIELER ODER BAUER" deliver us a good load of German Rock musick and here and now in this very case of SCHLUSSAKKORD (and "SPIELER ODER BAUER") especially and strongly in the tradition of (a lot) FREI.WILD and (a bit) GOITZSCHE FRONT. (On the current GOITZSCHE FRONT album "DEINES GLÜCKES SCHMIED" you also already find a review on up here and for my review on the new, damn fucking strong FREI.WILD album "RIVALEN UND REBELLEN" you probably and finally won't have to wait that much longer.) And with that influences already named let us also right name the pretty much only weakness of SCHLUSSAKKORD's "SPIELER ODER BAUER": I really would wish that they would work out far stronger and more explicit and precise their own identity than they do so currently because the quality of the musick and the songs and all is right there and pretty high and it is a really strong album... that just too often sounds too much like their influences (especially) FREI.WILD and (also, even far less) GOITZSCHE FRONT. But beside this, yes, SCHLUSSAKKORD's "SPIELER ODER BAUER" is a really good and strong album full of enthusiastic and highly energetic and dynamic, strong rockin', hymnal, sing-a-long-filled and heartfelt German Rock musick of the by far better kind and that I honestly can only recommend to any of you into German Rock, point and fact. Strong and pretty fresh, really strong, and massively onwards pushing (even, like more or less already mentioned shortly above, anything but unique or overly characteristic and individual) songwriting full of drive and power and an authentic gladiatorial attitude that also delivers honest emotions and different moods and this also nicely clichée-free marks and makes the songs heavily, yes, and this songs are really strong songs that are build on a very loadable and bulky backbone consisting of beefy punching drumming and powerful buzzing bass playing and that are then built from forceful 'crushingly' rocking and slightly metallic rolling and yet very catchy and melodic guitars that deliver heavy riffs and a hard and in sort of an organic or natural grooving rhythm work as well as melodic and anthemic leads and spicy solos and that are finally crowned by harsh and nasty rough and tough and yet still pretty melodic and very hymnal delivered lead vocals, yes, and I can really nothing but recommend SCHLUSSAKKORD and "SPIELER ODER BAUER" to you. Work out more precisely your very own identity that will make you more unique and aim at writing down even stronger and even far more anthemic songs to create really hymns with your next dose and SCHLUSSAKKORD could or should and probably will become sort of the next big thing 'in all things' German Rock. Strong, outspoken, and pretty diverse lyrics, a pretty clear and surely powerful production-sound, and also an all-in-all okay artwork then round it all up. Okay, and after I already pointed out one or two times before above that I can only recommend SCHLUSSAKKORD's "SPIELER ODER BAUER" to any of you out there into German Rock musick I will now close this record-review and will eat my breakfast and then start off to work. So, yes, and now have a great day and then get SCHLUSSAKKORD's "SPIELER ODER BAUER" best right later this very day (in case you still don't know and/or have it), guys.
