I must admit this album has probably taken the longest time to review of any I have done. Every time I play it I forget I’m supposed to be reviewing it and I end up just enjoying it instead!
So what to expect from Tanzwut? Well imagine Rammstein, but more pirate. I know sounds awesome right? Well it is. It was the first thing I thought when I had my first listen, It still stands after many many listens. I know it sounds a bit lazy to liken Tanzwut to “the other German speaking band that everyone has heard of” but in this case I think it’s justified, the vocal delivery is very similar as are some of the song structures.
After my initial pirate thoughts I reckoned I would Google some of the song titles to see how far off the mark I was, turns out I was pretty close, Seemannsgarn translates as “Sailor’s yarn”. Galvenvoegal translates as”Gallows bird” so I reckon I was right.
It’s really hard to talk about individual songs on 'Seemannsgarn' as they are all in German, which I love and think more bands should sing in their native language. As a non German speaker it does leave me wondering how to tell you how wonderful this album is. It makes me smile every time I hear it (and I’ve heard it a lot) and that can’t be a bad thing. It’s a well produced and carefully thought out sounding album, best played loud but will also work in the background.
So that’s it, buy the album, you won’t be disappointed, I haven’t been! Seemannsgarn by Tanzwut gets a well deserved 5 stars.
