SLIME is an institution that has existed intermittently since the 1980s and who shaped political punk rock in Germany like no other band. SLIME is now in the tenth year after her reunion, and that’s a damn good thing. Because we still need strong voices against fascism, we still need punk and we still need SLIME.
SLIME founding fathers Dirk Jora (vocals), Elf (guitar), Christian Mevs (guitar) and the new members Nici (bass) and Alex Schwers (drums) seem to be aware of their responsibilities and have now recorded their third studio album since their reunification. On »Wem Gehört Die Angst« SLIME stay true to their line and address important social problems such as anger, activism and the ongoing struggle against fascism. Whether biographically such as at ‘Ebbe Und Flut’ or steady as in ‘Paradies‘, where people are concerned who have always questioned the prevailing circumstances. Or as a clear political declaration of war against the Nazification of the West. ‘Die Toten Wollen Wieder Alleine Sein’, ‘Weisser Anschaum’, the title song ‘Wem Gehört Die Angst’, ‘Fetten Jahre’ – the new punk rock hits beyond the hits are ruthless reflections of a time when dark browns are marching in again undisturbed sits in the parliaments.
And all this in the classic SLIME guise: driving, angry, melancholic, but always hymnical and direct.
