Через три года после выпуска крайне успешного "Alien Road", завоевавшего группе место в плейлистах всего готического мира, словаки The Last Days Of Jesus представляют свой новый альбом - 13 маниакальных треков об индустриальном господстве и шизофреничной отчужденности от окружающего глупого мира.
Как никто другой на современной deathrock-сцене, TLDOJ уже более 13 лет экспериментируют с самыми различными составляющими, попадая под самые различные определения от neo-batcave/deathrock/goth до post punk, punk и даже psychobilly, но находясь при этом вне всех этих жанровых рамок... На новом альбоме группа привнесла в свое звучание элементы new wave, не теряя при этом и связи с deathrock-направлением, и, в тоже время, упрочив свою популярность в панк-среде новыми заводными боевиками. Треки с этого альбома уже штурмуют панк/готик-танцполы и независимые чарты!

ВНИМАНИЕ! Каждому заказавшему этот диск через наш сайт - ЗНАЧОК В ПОДАРОК!

ОТЗЫВЫ:



Там-дам, там-дам, там-дам! Вот с такого очень готичного боя очень готичных часов начинается новый очень готичный альбом «Dead Machines' Revolution!» очень готичной группы The Last Days of Jesus, что родом из Словакии. Сия совершенно безбашенная банда является настоящим феноменом на сегодняшней готик-рок сцене, ибо музыка их не укладывается ни в одни рамки. С одной стороны, это дезрок, с другой, это совсем не дезрок. Элементы постпанка, готик олдскула, психобилли, готик-рока, кабаре и электронные вставки образуют очень странное звуковое полотно, подыскивать названия и определения которому абсолютно бесполезно.
На новом альбоме слушателя ожидают 13 абсолютно сумасшедших треков, заполненных коктейлем из черного юмора, непохожих друг на друга аранжировок и Готичности с большой буквы «Г», не той, занудной подростково-кладбищенской романтики, а настоящей: панкушной, декадентской и абсурдной. Первая песня Positive встречает слушателя боевыми, задорными гитарами и дурацким вокалом. За 2 с половиной минуты сей маленький шедевр умудряется поднять человека со стула и заставить скакать по комнате, распевая «Positiiiiive Vieeeeew ooof Liiiiiife!...» А ведь это только начало, дальше будет более спокойная, но не менее цепляющая 1001101: The Weekend, очень дезроковая Freedom Factories, Zombie Haut-Couture, начинающаяся с идиотского (в хорошем смысле слова) монолога про орган, который звучит недостаточно spooky. Однако веселые словаки не забывают про передышку и следующей нас ждет медленная и готичная Robot Child, наверно, самая spooky песня на всем альбоме, мелодичная Sad Voices From the Inside of a Rusty Rocket с мощным припевом и, пожалуй, наиболее пафосный и сильный хит альбома London Bridge is Falling Down. Далее будет слегка механическая Maschinen Friedhof, рокабильная Revolution of Sick Brains, немного пост-панковая Walking on Hands и весьма готик-роковая Machine on Calm. Завершает это 36-минутное безумие забавное аутро Thanx for Evolution.
На самом деле рассуждать об этом диске абсолютно бессмысленно и словами музыку словаков описать практически невозможно. Могу сказать только, что альбом точно не будет пылиться у вас на полке, будь вы хоть олдскул-готом, хоть просто меломаном. Даже если вам не нравится дезрок, или вы считаете, что эта сцена погрязла в самоплагиате, советую послушать Last Days of Jesus, - поймете, что не все так плохо. Отдельное спасибо следует сказать Shadowplay за то, что выпустили альбом по божеской цене, да еще и приложили к нему желтенький значок – непременный атрибут настоящего дезрокера. ;)

Я знал этот проект еще с их MCD "Narrentanz", выпущенном в 1999 году. С тех пор мне понравилось их умение воздействовать на разум с помощью batcave/post punk и делать это как-то по своему. И вот с тех времен у меня не было возможности послушать их новых релизов. Но час настал! DEAD MACHINES' REVOLUTION! наполнил меня чувствами. На этом альбоме Mary0 с друзьями приготовил на наш суд 13 треков сокровенного готик-рока, где вокал Mary0 отлично вливается в музыку всей группы. Post punk, goth и new wave оживают с помощью квартета, который вместе с друзьями по лейблу Miguel & The Living Dead делают отличную работу ломая старые стереотипы и добавляя влияния r'n'r/rockabilly.

Eastern-European bands are increasingly active on the deathrock front. One of the more distinct products of this development is The Last Days of Jesus from Slovakia. They present a more campy side of deathrock, trading atmosphere for a kind of dark humor that works very well. Even after four albums they are still full of ideas, they certainly don't lack inspiration.
With an intro called "Dead-Cuckoo-Clock" the tone is set for the rest of the album. A burlesque stance characterizes Dead Machines Revolution. The uptempo "Positive" features razorsharp guitars and restless percussion, make way on the dancefloor for this ferocious track! With the herky-jerky, robotic tunes of "1001101:the weekend" The Last Days of Jesus can be described as a sort of deathrock version of DEVO. The galloping "Freedom Factories" contains a lot of energy, the guitars shriek, the drums scamper. The intro of "Zombie Haut-Couture" is one you'll never forget. 'Gimme some spooky organ, man' and a repeated request for an even more spooky organ sound until you hear some sort of Dracula/horror tune is so farcical that even the most serious batcavers will turn a smile on their face. Very entertaining! "Robot Child (A Song For Nina)" bears some resemblance to The Legendary Pink Dots. That is due to the narrative nature of the track and the morose, dark-humoured circus/carnival-like tunes. After all this experimentation and weirdness the more straightforward "Sad Voices From The Inside Of A Rusty Rocket" is a welcome interlude. "London Bridge is Falling Down" may not sound very innovative, the intensity of this track is mesmerizing. "Machinen Friedhof" is an edgy, somewhat mechanical track whereas "Revolution Of Sick Brains" sounds very raw and lo-fi. Excellent rock 'n' roll! Vocalist Mary0 the robotjoker sounds more restrained during "Walking On Hands", he doesn't need a ghoulish voice to sound piercing. "Machine of Calm" is very catchy and even poppy, the repetitive, upbeat synths do the trick. The somewhat goofy "Thanx for Evolution!" contains lyrics like 'genetic war and mental abortion'. You get the point. Dead Machines Revolution is another strong album by this unique four-piece from Bratislava. Their ironic, morbid lyrics and intelligent compositions form an cabaretesque style of deathrock. Batcave with a humorous edge.

The latest and by far their best release so far will take you on a rollercoaster deathrock ride, which is over too soon in 36 mins 21 seconds to be precise. So don't be shocked if this CD gets stuck in the CD player and refuses to leave! The CD opens with the apt intro Dead Cuckoo Clock before exploding into Positive will be an instant hit in any Goth/Deathrock club. A short sharp punch of punk infused Gothic rock which will leave you dazed! Even the dead will dance! 1001101 The Weekend (dmr version) captures perfectly the degradation of the rat race and it's effects on the creative soul who spends too much time on the mundane, instead of venting their creative side. "Living in a boring world / Working on your boring dreams / Living in a coffin!" will have you singing along. Love the choppy guitars. Freedom Factories classic LDOJ which puts them firmly in a distinct sound of their own. Zombie Haut-couture the ultimate spooky smash for the dance floor. Clever sing along lyrics the perfect Deathrock pop song! Robot Child ( A song for Nina) - a haunting avantgarde ditty. Sad Voices (from inside a rusty rocket) - the alien B movie is brought to life. London Bridge is falling down - a great song, possibily the best track on the album. The song musically and lyrically captures the sense of impending doom. The song could easily reflect the new age of the suicide bomber. Maschinen friedhof - deft keyboards clash with a refreshing guitar riff which is a classic in 80's post punk sound. Great song. Revolution of Sick Brains a pyschobilly slam dance which reminds me of early That Petrol Emotion which will bang a hole in the dancefloor! Walking on Hands - another clever lyric and deft deathrock musicianship. Machine of Calm a high octane song to ignite the dancefloor. Pogo! Thanks for Evolution - brings the album to a close in almost robotic sideshow outro. The album is must for anyone who loves deathrock. The album is a DJ's dream!

The best thing to come out of Bratislava, The Last Days of Jesus return with a new album, and an evolved sound. Their last album Alien Road nestled safely between the caring arms of Goth, Deathrock and Dark Caberet, and was in a word: Fantastic. Does Dead Machines' Revolution follow in its footsteps?
The album opens with the chiming of a cuckoo clock. Not really a track, so we move straight into 'Positive' a punked up spookfest, about Aids. Last Day's distinctive vocals warble over a slightly more synth driven sound than the last album. Difficult subject, but this song is a hell of a lot of fun. '1001101: The Weekend (Dmr Version)' is carries this electronic sound forward running under the simple guitar driven structure of the song. If you are a fan of the New Dark Age series (and if you are not then become one) you will recognize this song about the mundaneness of most peoples lives. You know I think I prefer the new version. 'Freedom Factories' is a classic Last Day's track with a simple repetitive motif but the new synths are still there. Recognise the pattern yet? 'Zombie Haut-Couture' asks for spooky organ and the synths deliver. Disturbingly upbeat and nicely put together - 'life is a catwalk and you're acting depression', I can't decide if it is about Size 0 models or the scenesters at the goth night. 'Robot Child' has the caberet feel that Last Day's delight in. Again much more synth driven than their previous efforts.
"Sad Voices" loses the synth sound for a return of the piano, post-punk bassline breaking into punk chorus, a complex track and a step away from Last Day's catchier tunes, but may well be the best on the Album. 'London Bridge is falling Down' is a simpler Goth-Punk track which reminds me of Carter USM with real backing instruments. 'Maschinen Friedhof' strikes me as a broadly Deathrock track, with a rumbling early 80's bass line, and wait for it - there are those synths again! 'Revolution of Sick Brains' has a touch of gothabilly about, not as harsh as Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, but I detect the kind of faux American accent that goes with this type thing, a nice track but not very Last Days. 'Walking on Hands' is another more post-punk offering, I don't know why it made me think of country - but maybe that is what goth is; Post-Punk Country fusion? 'Machine of Calm' follows the post-punk direction, with a really nice bass line echoed by jangly guitar and a strong sense of progression up to the chorus. You know maybe the indie kids would like this one? 'Thanx For Evolution' sums Dead Machines' Revolution up with a simple Dark Caberet track.
Playing with synths is something lots of Indie Punk bands are exploring at the moment. Last Day's haven't gone as far as Frustration in experimentation, but you will have to decide about whether they have added to their sound in a postiive way. Despite being a 13 track piece, Dead Machines' Revolution has the feel of an EP about it. I know it has taken them a long time to come out with it, and have taken a few experimental steps, but Alien Road is such a fine album that this seems to be more a continuation of the musical themes that the first album delivered with such energy. On the bright side this suggests that Last Day's still have more to give, and the next album may well be thier ultimate masterpiece.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't buy the Dead Machines' Revolution. It is a good album. In fact, it is probably one of the best albums in it's genre out there. Go and buy it. But in 10 years time when you fancy a bit of Last Day's I bet Alien Road will be the one you pop into your vintage CD player.

I knew The Last Days Of Jesus because of their MCD "Narrentanz" released back in 1999. Since then I appreciated their attitude of taking the batcave/post punk sound and making it evolve into something personal and energetic. Since then I haven't the opportunity to check their releases until now. DEAD MACHINES' REVOLUTION! confirms my positive feeling I had back then as on this album we find Mary0 and friends performing 13 tracks of personal gothic rock where the theatrical vocal performance of Mary0 are well supported by the music of the band. Post punk, goth and new wave are revived by the quartet which along with their label mates Miguel & The Living Dead (I saw they live in Italy about a year ago) are doing a great job by breaking old cliches of goth by including also some r'n'r/rockabilly influences.
