Longtime friends PROJECT .44 and original KMFDM multi-instrumentalist En Esch have teamed up again (the first was in acting role as Esch starred in PROJECT .44's 2007 video "I") to bring a menacing new track that echoes the classic sounds of its players. What happens when you take the voice of all of those great KMFDM songs (Esch), the guitar from those legendary Ministry tunes (Svitek) and the bass from those Thrill Kill Kult dance hits (Levi)? You get "Murder Weapon" - the new track on an EP being dubbed project .44 vs. En Esch.
The EP features a studio mix of the song and three remixes: a dance floor stomper by En Esch that harkens back to KMFDM's classic mainstay "Godlike", PROJECT .44's tribal percussion assault on the tune, and NYC's Panic Lift (Metropolis Records), giving it a chilled out, spooky vibe. The physical version also includes a remix of the track "Chicago", which will be on the band's upcoming full-length release. The EP was recorded at Tribeca and Sviteknology Studios in Chicago, engineered by Louis Svitek and T. Castillo, and mastered by Wade Alin.
When asked, PROJECT .44 founder, Harri5 stated, "There was this song that just needed En Esch's voice on it, and when you hear it, you'll know why!"
Order "Murder Weapon" here via iTunes, Amazon or stream via Spotify.This song is a prelude to the forthcoming PROJECT .44 album (the storm before) reform and the recently released Trash Chic (Distortion Productions) by En Esch.
In celebration of the release, PROJECT .44 will perform with 3 Teeth tonight at Reggie's Rock House in Chicago, IL. Doors are at 7:00pm and tickets are $15. The show is 17+. For more information, visit:
