Undercover Slut “Amerikkka Macht Frei” (2009)

From cold Parisian catacombs to hot California sun! This new UNDERCOVER SLUT album was recorded at the Chop Shop studio in Hollywood and this is no surprise, the SLUTS finally have the sound they deserve on CD!
Despite the line-up changes throughout the years, the band still waves the industiral glam punk flag high and never sounded so good with songs like “Shadow Song”, “Anna Nicole Smith” my favourite track on this album or sleazy modern trash song “Dear Dead Prez”.
The band wasn’t afraid to experiment a bit as well on tracks like “Black CNN” and its gangsta rap influences, “Kastration Kar krashes” and its jungle drum beats or “Creature feature” and its electro loop. While the band’s spirit is not that far from The NEWLYDEADS, there’s also a bit of a Marilyn Manson feel in a song like “WHITE WHORE Conspiracy” or a bit of MINISTRY in “What Kinda Lamb Do Ya Think I Am?”.
To complete this dark and decadent party, you’ll find a few guests on this album, people such as Eric Griffin (MURDERDOLLS, SYNICAL…) on “Kastration Kar Krashes”, Teddy Heavens (from L.A’s shock rock kings REBEL REBEL) on “Dali Was A Junkie” and more surprisingly Charles Manson’s son Matthew Roberts on spoken word duet “Jesus Kills! Coroner Saves!”. Sure this was recorded in sunny California but that doesn’t mean you’ll find happy party songs on this album. Singer and lyricist ‘O’ still mixes his dark personal feelings and hate towards the system to social issues like animal liberation.
The best album I’ve heard in that style in a long while!/Laurent C.
