GlaubeLiebeTod (FaithLoveDeath) is the latest album by German industrial trio Oomph! I've always regarded this group as one of the pioneers of experimental industrial/electro-metal genre, and their latest work doesn't change this. GlaubeLiebeTod is a varied yet steady effort bringing a smirk on every industrial metal fan's face. In case you've listened to Oomph! in the past, you'll first notice that the material is nowadays more metal-tinted than before. In addition, GlaubeLiebeTod has to be the catchiest Oomph! album ever. Already the album opener "Gott ist ein Popstar" (God is a Popstar), bores into your head and stays there.

It's quite a shame Oomph! isn't as well known as they should be. In my view, Oomph! is a lot better than the group they've noticeably influenced - namely Rammstein. It was also great to notice that Oomph! seems to have taken inspiration from artists such as Buckethead on their latest offering. Though the material is at times a bit generic, this album does a rather good job in entertaining its listener.

The sounds on this record are rather good. The balance between rawness and softness has been realized fairly nicely... there's enough edge to the sounds so the slight softness here and there doesn't take away the industrial credibility. Even if you don't understand German, I'd advise you to check this group out in case you listen to industrial metal - you might be favourably surprised.
