商品説明

As Laibach took on more and more of a direct musical identity outside Slovenia, as opposed to being seen as simply part of the Neue Slowenische Kunst, the group's music gained a similar focus, though admittedly one still aimed specifically at an avant-garde level. Nova Akropola readily captures the band's stone-faced fascination with propaganda, fascism, and the implications of rallying and control, while the music was so perfectly on the money with stentorian rhythms, rough chants, and unnerving textures and samples that it almost beggars description. The title track is a perfect example, string-synths and horns slowly, creepily wafting up through the mix before a distorted, strangled voice starts howling over the slowest death-march beat around. There are signs at many points that the group is starting to explore the perversely accessible styles of later years, but it's still early days yet -- the appropriate comparison wouldn't be industrial/dance so much as the first albums by the Swans. Die Liebe, though, is very much the stomping, riff-heavy semi-dance hit from hell, something of a dry run for the later demolitions of Queen and other groups. Vade Retro takes a calmer but not less haunting approach, a mix of keyboards and drums providing rhythms while vocals swirl like disembodied choirs from the mountaintop. The clipped, commanding vocals throughout may only be understandable to those who know Slovenian, but a handily provided translation increases the extreme irony even further -- sample lyric, from War Poem: The stronger one will wash our faces and moisten our lips with a rag/and the night with a cold knife will cut us black bread. A couple of older cuts make return appearances on the American issue, including the marvelous Drzava, Tito sample fully intact. [The enhanced edition of the CD includes a rare promotional video and other bonus material.] ~ Ned Raggett, Rovi

「DRZAVA」がまた何とも言えない名曲です。彼らは作品によって編成を変えるのですが、私としてはこの作風が一番好きです。

Laibach

Laibach is an industrial group whose members prefer to be known as a collective rather than reveal individual names; they've been seen as fascists and of practicing Germanophilia because of their music's Wagnerian thunder and their military attire. According to Laibach, We are fascists as much as Hitler was a painter. Since fascism needs a scapegoat to flourish, the members of Laibach mocked it by
