KMFDM

When: Wed., Oct. 4, 7 p.m. 2017

When band leader Sascha Konietzko launched the industrial rock outfit KMFDM (originally Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid, which loosely translates as "no pity for the majority") in Hamburg in 1984, he drew from proto-industrial acts such as Einstürzende Neubauten, SPK and Throbbing Gristle, KMFDM borrowed from a few different genres. The band got a boost when it toured the States in the Ministry in 1989 but then broke up for a short spell in the late ‘90s and early 2000s. It reconvened a few years back and has been going strong ever since. Its latest effort, Hell Yeah, represents another remarkable chapter in the band’s storied career. The disc commences with the infectious title track, a tune driven by a funky bass riff and percolating synths (think a cross between Pet Shop Boys and Nine Inch Nails) and then veers into alternately heavy and dancefloor friendly tunes, all of which should translate well live.
