THOROFON Final Movement / Bloodheat

CD album | gg94
A milestone in Thorofon's back catalogue, 'Final Movement' was released on the band's own UMB label in 2002. A very limited version of the album had a 10" included which is also present on this CD re-issue. And in addition, we have thrown in a previously unreleased track so the playing time is extended to nearly 80 minutes. Thorofon are a German-based duo consisting of Genevieve Pasquier (who also records as a solo artist) and Anton Knilpert. Although their sound is very unique, their roots lie in classic 80's Industrial - 'Final Movement' starts where SPK stopped in the mid Eighties. 'Bloodheat' is more your Cabaret Voltaire or Portion Control. A killer album first time on CD.

Das zweite Album von Thorofon (..) entwickelte sich nach einiger Zeit zu einem Klassiker der was-weiss-cih-Generation des Industrial. Nicht ganz unschuldig an diesem Erfolg war der Track "Riotdictator", der in seiner Industrial-Punk-Attitüde stark an Klassiker von SPK erinnerte und bei Konzerten und Clubs lethargische wie beleibte Tanzbären zu lächerlichen Pogo-Versuchen animierte. Mit diesem Album addierten Thorofon erstmals verständliche Gesangsstrukturen und Minimal-Elektro- bzw. Angst-Pop-Elemente zum harschen Industrial- Sound und gingen somit ähnliche Wege wie Haus Arafna."
