Biography After KMFDM's album Adios, En Esch departed the group, as did Günther Schulz. Sascha Konietzko, the founding member, wanted to carry on the popularity of the name KMFDM but at the same time indicate a change in direction, so he reversed the letters to form MDFMK.
Bah, basically MDFMK is a compact version of KMFDM (ffs, there's even a sticker on the cover, reading "ex KMFDM their selftitled new album etc"), with Tim Skold & Lucia Cifarelli assisting Sascha in the singing/songwriting and knob-twiddling departments. And surprisingly, they manage to make the first good KMFDM album since XTORT.
MDFMK charts the same breakbeat industrial-thrash that has long been a staple of any KMFDM album, complete with ranting vocals, aggressive songwriting, heavy-metal chords that sound vaguely familiar, and solid programming that reveals a surprising pop sense. There are a few concessions to technology, including groovier basslines and digital.
