AllMusic Review by

Just when you thought grindcore had run out of surprises, along comes a psychotic headcase of a record like Japanische Kampfhörspiele's Fertigmensch E.P. Over the course of 22- pummeling minutes, German-croaked blasts like "Alle Wollen gut Aussehen (Und Tun Es Nicht)" and "Fan Von Gar Nichts" are vomited forth with indescribable fury, their ultra-precise hypercussion slicing like knives through each guitar riff's succulent meat. "Scheisse der Lehrer" is an irresistible shout-along -- whatever it means (actually, it's "Teacher's Sh*t") -- and the disc's final pairing of tracks actually bucks the unofficial two-minute limit observed thus far to flirt with silent patches, electronic effects, and even tape loops. Altogether, they help make Fertigmensch more diverse, memorable, and exciting than many albums twice its length.
