  • XTORT doesn't sound markedly different than KMFDM's other releases -- there are still the bruising mechanical drum beats and numbingly drilling guitars, combined with barked vocals. What's noticeable about XTORT -- their first album since industrial broke into the Top 40 with Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral -- is how the band made no concessions to the pop/rock mainstream whatsoever. They are still the same grimy, dank heavy dance band they were in the '80s. For some listeners, that means they're keeping the flame burning and, to a certain extent, they'd be right -- KMFDM sounds as good as they ever have, and several tracks rank among their best. But, over a decade into their career, it would be nice to hear the band branch out and start to experiment a little bit more. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/11-25/96, p.90) - 3 Stars - Good - "...insidiously arty and intellectually sassy music..."

Entertainment Weekly (7/12/96, pp.58-59) - "...XTORT grooves with menacing force, spattering horns, female backing vocals, strings, and spoken words across an apocalyptic sound grid. At the same time, it's the heaviest and most danceable disc in their 12-year career." - Rating: A-

Alternative Press (11/99, p.23) - Included in AP's 10 "Essential Industrial-Rock ALbums" - "...features a rogues' gallery of guests who assist leader Sascha Konietzko in appropriating styles for his own synth-and-six-stringed empire..."

RIP (9/96, p.72) - 4 (out of 5) - "...On XTORT, the usual combination of turbulent dance beats, grating heavy metal riffs and shouted vocals gives way to the most accomplished set of songs to come from the KMFDM clique thus far..."

Industrial metal fans will love any of KMFDM’s work. Here KMFDM delivers a solid industrial metal album in Xtort… one you can put on and leave on. From the get go you’ll find yourself appreciating the thumping beats accompanied by rhythmic distorted guitar. This is an album with attitude and a few personal favourite industrial metal tracks such as ‘Dogma’.
