Active since 1993, Rudy Ratzinger
's project :WUMPSCUT:
is one of the very few industrial acts, that succeeded to maintain a prominent position in electronic music since the very first beginnings with 'Music for a Slaughering Tribe'. Riding high on the success of his previous two albums, Rudy
presents his effort 'Schrekk & Graus', loosely translatable as 'Scare & Horror' and despite his worldwide success (especially also in Nothern America), this album by surprise features more German lyrics than ever.
'S&G' offers the usual harsh industrial, synth-driven sound with distorted vocals and scary melodies and after a few excursions into more 'mellow' sound-regions, on 'S&G' Rudy R.
also returns to some more aggressive, harder stuff - always maintaining his special trademark: A well balanced melange of good melodies, great arrangements and industrial noise.
