Metropolis Records presents KMFDM Extra. Extra is a three volume set of double disc collections of all KMFDM tracks not included on the ten KMFDM Classic albums.
KMFDM Extra features recordings culled from the band’s 12” vinyl singles, CD singles and alternate versions of albums. Every track in the Extra series has been remastered by the same crew who did the amazing remasters for all 10 KMFDM Classic albums. All of the material on Extra has been out of print for many years. Some songs in the Extra series appear on CD for the first time ever and none of them have been released in remastered form before.
Continuing the tradition started with the KMFDM Classic releases the accompanying booklets for the Extra series are packed with exciting material. Some highlights include cover art from every album and single from which cuts were taken (most covers are by famed KMFDM cohort Brute!), never before seen photos of the band from the time period, release history info for all tracks and previously unavailable complete recording information and credits. As it has been with all the KMFDM re-releases on Metropolis, work on this series, from the remastering to the packaging, has been done with the highest level of participation from Sascha K., KMFDM’s leader and founder.
Extra Volume 2, coming August 5th, is comprised of songs from the Help Us/Save Us/Take Us Away single in 1992 to the Glory single in 1994. This two disc set contains 27 tracks, over 2 hours and 12 minutes of music. Extra Vol. 2 features the original re-mixes of some of KMFDM’s biggest hits: “A Drug Against War”, “Light”, “Sucks”, “Glory” plus b-sides, extra tracks and more! Extra Vol. 2 also includes a 16 page booklet featuring art, photos and anecdotes.
Extra Vol. 1 is out and available now, look for Extra Vol. 3 coming soon to complete the KMFDM Extra trilogy. KMFDM, a musical Extravaganza.
I still love "Too Dark Park," but in my mind this album is the true successor to "VIVIsectVI." There's just something special about this pre-"Rabies" sound, in this case due no doubt to Leeb's contributions... Scott
Kickin Ass is one of the coolest fckn songs I ever heard. I wish there was an extended version. The remixes are not nearly as cool as the original. PIG nailed that old school 80s industrial throwback vibe. Makes me think of like Pailhead or Ministry or Paula Abdul xD
Totally Awesome Album full of sick songs. Seed of Evil.. Oh mann so good miche11edanie11e
