Originally copyrighted in 1992, this is a Van Richter domestic reissue. Like Magnum Force, the release starts off with four or five industrial, distorted guitar tracks that recall KMFDM (while being better than any KMFDM release from the same time period) and Ministry's The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste. The Teutonic Sturm und Drang turns disturbing and haunting for the last third of this disc, following the formula of Magnum Force. However, this later release is stronger than its predecessor and more reliant on musicality than programmed guitar samples. The thundering drums are still here, along with more pronounced keyboard electronics. This album is the source of the group's dancefloor success, "Korrosion." However, listeners still have that worthy Sielwolf arty and gothic industrial sound, represented by the ten-minute tracks "Freitag" and "Ghost Track."
