Grausame Töchter - Alles für Dich


"Alles für dich" is the title of the latest German dark electro/EBM project Grausame Töchter’s album, which releases on Nov. 23 rd by Scanner Records.
The bizarre girls around Aranea Peel deliver a remarkably excellent musical work, which lives up to their name: The lyrics are even darker, more cruel and evil than on their debut. Areana sings to an imaginary friend in most songs (or does she exist in reality?), who becomes a merciless victim of Araneas most atrocious fantasies. Therefore many songs have titles such as:"Therapie fuer Dich"(Therapy for you), "Tanz fuer Dich"(Dance for you) and "Rosen fuer Dich"(Roses for you). Especially the last title is misleading: Instead of romance the topic is murder. Many songs seem like a psychosadistic hymn to brutal sangfroid, searching for its equal. "There are enough dishonest songs about love, warmth and understanding" says Aranea in an interview, "I can only do the opposite."

Musically they have an amazingly broad range between EBM Industrial, Elektropunk, Soundtrack and TripHop.

On top of the emphatic electronic basis they have three analogue guest musicians on drums, piano, and a deep charismatic baritone guitar, which gives the album a quite strange uncanny character.

"Ich Darf Das" and "Albtraum Deiner Lust" in particular should have the potential to become club hits in the goth scene.

"Alles für dich" is a terrifically produced album, which may certainly alarm some listeners, not just because every form of sadism seems uncomfortably authentic.
