 KMFDM, Our Time Will Come (Metropolis Records)

This is turning into a yearly thing, stomp-industrial oldbies KFMDM phoning in another set of tunes intended to kick the butt of Lacuna Coil, which just keeps gaining or losing ground depending on which exorcist-growling hot chick you favor. This particular half-effort is slightly more underwhelming than the band’s last few albums, being as how the album opener, “Genau,” rips off an old cavitating Front Line Assembly borderline-trance beat to accentuate its Laibach-like lyrical irreverence, and then we’re off to the toil-and-trouble races, a bunch of mid-tempo yawners that seem to have sprung from a random goth-rock generator. As always, the main problem with KMFDM is its message, which can’t decide whether to stress anarchic camraderie or jackbooted peer-beatdowns. Artistry can be difficult, I suppose. B Eric W.
