"Katrin V and Armin von Milch are the greatest living deads the German electronic-music-scene can offer these days. File them under 'angstpop' -- what is not just a event serial in a club called 'garage' in Berlin pankow. 'Angstpop' also is a synonym for their idea to bring the negativity of wave into the status quo of electronic music. 'Europa' shows how this works out. Milch managed to produce a totally new sound-aesthetic which is not influenced by classic wave-codes like octave-bass and which brings up the energy of the ground zero years. Milch brought creepy gore and frosty electro together. Fucked up and sexy. The voice of Katrin V. is full of references. And when she shouts the hookline 'we are staring into the dead eyes of Europe' it shows clear: this is not about gothic which is based on egocentric-kitsch-inner-strife. This is about black-political-pitiless-expressionism. Under the morbid sounds of a cannibal-movie. 'Zeus in Love' sounds somehow lovely. Like often in life there is the beautiful behind a horror trip. And vice versa."
