I stumbled upon the album Tekkno by Electric Callboy, formerly known as Eskimo Callboy, while looking for new metalcore music. After having been treated with ten absolute bangers of sheer genre-mashup-madness somewhere between metalcore, techno, and Schlager music, this is my album of the year 2023.
It’s one of those rare records that I can listen to from start to finish without skipping a single track. That makes it my go-to soundtrack for jogging, showering, cooking… unfortunately, to the great displeasure of my wife. Sorry! I still had to add the Tour Edition, that packs five additional live tracks, to my vinyl record collection.
Generation Youtube gets an over-the-top fun, crazy, and visually exuberant music video for every track, e.g. Spaceman. These are only topped by Electric Callboy’s galvanizing live shows.
Digging through the band’s history, featured guests, and general surrounding brought up more bands I have looked into and thoroughly enjoyed listening to:
- Conquer Divide
- Samurai Pizza Cats
- The Butcher Sisters
- Future Palace
