Well this was really hard to digest to be perfectly honest, a German band as chaotic as this one doesn't appear everyday at your doorstep, though I'm not quite sure if I would like that to happen anyway. The strength of this band comes in a very noisy shape and that simple fact is the standard of the entire album. Actually...that fact will also mean headaches and maybe heart attacks in some people.

Others however will rejoice and dance around this CD. There's people out there eating Cripple Bastards for breakfast on a regular basis, they have already a strong ear almost made of wood (and almost deaf), so they'll like the chaos and madness in this disc. Beware as I'm not saying Yacopsae has the outstanding quality of the aforementioned band with their amazing breakdowns and mid-paced bits here and there, on the contrary, the German ensemble sounds incredibly raw and without a virtual structure (unless some people see their randomness as musical structure).

The last time I heard an album without any particular line was when Bones Brigade sent me Last Days Of Humanity's "Putrefaction In Progress". That doesn't even really count as the band was totally pissed off at that moment because they were breaking up and then decided to make it their last record, the most insane and chaotic one of their career. So that one at least had a concept, this is Yacopsae's début if I'm not mistaken, so go figure how their last album is going to be.

I really do miss catchy riffs and some pauses, and please don't get me wrong, I'm constantly looking for the most extreme and the most hostile band on earth. It isn't even that Yacopsae went further or anything, it's just that the concept gets worn off and in time you'll end up skipping through tracks just to find that tiny little riff that hooked you up because of its slower motion. Thus, it makes "Tanz Grosny Tanz" an album for true collectors of the genre, the ones that don't even care if they play the album or not, they only want their shelves to look astonishing and really freaking big.

Yes, there are some good moments and a couple of different paces inside this record. It is the 5% of the whole piece though, the 95% is just like I already explained. So I guess when I'm in the chaotic mood I'll choose to play the latest Splitter or Pig Destroyer or Last Days Of Humanity, but this doesn't mean I won't be playing this album ever again. So if you can bare ten minutes of chaos for ten seconds of freedom then go for it.
