The band also just launched its newest website at www.tamtrum.com . Check it out !
Review wise the positive comments keep on streaming in with scores going from 8/10 tot a plain 10/10 ! Some quotes:
"A real killingfield" - D-side
"... chaotic clubcrackers comparable with the outrageous track ‘Datura Dream’ from their first cd" - 8/10 Gothtronic
"Alfa Matrix hat ein scharfes Biest entdeckt und direkt unter Vertrag genommen. Die blutdurstigen Tiere von TAMTRUM stehen für Provokation, Perversion und extreme Sounds." - 9/10 Neurotunes
"...endlich einmal wieder Musik von Musikern ohne verengte Perspektive!" - Gothic Paradise
"Tamtrum take again no prisoners at all and you should pick up these piece somehow... Of course, this hellish stuff RAWKS again!" - 8/10 Chain D.L.K.
"... ein Album mit vielen tanzbaren Tracks im Stil von Hocico. Weiterhin beweisen sie, dass die französische Sprache nicht nur für "Soft-Pop" zu gebrauchen ist, sondern auch gut zu elektronischen harten Beats passt." - Medienkonverter
"It seems almost logical that shock rock and black metal's reckless egotism would compliment heavy electro perfectly, and while a few attempt it, Tamtrum live it. While moments within Blakc Mess can devolve into just that, a caustic sonic mess, their abrasive thumping chaos is as toxic as it is addictive." - 8/10 Virus Magazine
"With this release being one of my favorites for this summer, before the arrival of the review package, those interested in metal-like ebm/industrial bands should sure check out." - Metalfrontiers
"Sound unseen, they are exciting, relentless and crafter." - Subculture Magazine
"You could listen to it for hours and not get bored... one of the best industrial albums I have heard. An awesome addition to an industrial collection. And a well deserved 10/10." - 10/10 Vampirefreaks
