CD review ONKEL TOM ‘Bier Ernst’

(8/10) Next to his thrash powerhouse Sodom, Tom Angelripper also spends quite some time with Onkel Tom. Tom Angelripper’s solo outlet differs a lot from Sodom, but still fits perfectly into the musical spectrum of the German metal legend.

Songs are kept in German and also ‘Bier Ernst’ doesn’t change things. The newest album is a 2CD release – ‘Bier’ and ‘Ernst’. The first disc, which is entitled ‘Bier’ features twelve songs that can act as a perfect soundtrack for the next party you’ve planned. Hoarse vocals, great melodies and a metallic ‘Schlager’vibe characterises this dirty dozen of songs. Lyrics aren’t real poems though. It’s the about beer, a drink (or two) and a party vibe that invites for an immediate sing-a-long.

German lyrics stay, songs get harder – that’s ‘Ernst’. ‘Ich find Metal geil’ kicks off the second round and clarifies why metal is f**king awesome. In general things are more ‘Ernst’ (serious) in CD 2 and that’s reflected in the lyrics too. ‘Todgeweiht’, ‘Von Arschlöchern für Arschlöcher’ and ‘Auf dünnen Eis’ are three examples for these more critical and serious songs.

‘Bier Ernst’ has a lot to over. This double CD package features nasty rock/metal music taken from real life.
