More Kool Albums – Thrill Kill Kult: Confessions Of A Knife

My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult - Confessions of a Knife album art

Time for a post, but I dunno what to post about, so I’m just going to share another album I think is the absolute stank.

My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult’s (usually shortened to TKK – because fuck that!) Confessions Of A Knife, is a good album – the critics knew this, the people knew it, and that’s why it went on to be one of Wax Trax!’s biggest selling albums of all time, eclipsed only by TKK’s followup, Sexplosion!. I don’t like that album as much, so I’m not going to talk about it. Not today anyway.

The bands ability to bring in the big bucks subsequently landed them a deal with Interscope, which was a bit of a big deal at the time (but now defunct). The deal only survived a few years, and as the rise and fall of industrial music went, TKK went back to independent labels. Anyway, there is nothing here you won’t find on Wikipedia, so I’ma shudup and leave  you  with the choice to play this seminal piece of later-days industrial history, or not.

Play it!

Highlights:
A Daisy Chain 4 Satan
The Days of Swine & Roses
Kooler Than Jesus
Burning Dirt

It’s all pretty good though.
