Letzte Instanz - Wir Sind Gold
Although pretty popular in Germany, Letzte Instanz [Last Instance] isn’t a famous name here. And that’s actually surprising since they have just released their sixth studio album and have already made a live DVD. Of course, that’s mainly because they only sing in German. At first they hassled with some line-up changes, but since 2005 they have established a strong formation consisting of seven men.
 
Describing Letzte Instanz' music isn’t an easy thing. Most noticeable are the typical vocals. Raw and heavy German which immediately reminded me of Rammstein. The first two songs ‘Du und Ich’ and ‘Morgenrot’ have a slow and heavy rock feeling to it. I think it is somewhat detrimental for non-German listeners because I immediately felt like singing along but that was pretty much hampered by the language.

The next songs are more epic and the violin and cello become more involved in the music. It’s this part of the record that I like most. The rawness mixed with the orchestral parts made me enjoy these songs and had an impressive “chill”-factor! Then suddenly the record gets a completely different sound with ‘Worte Brennen Gut’. Less epic elements, much more rawness which gives it something close to a nu-metal sound. One thing that really stands out is the perfection of the songs. Independently from how they sound, you can hear that there has been put a lot of effort into it and everything seems to be very well thought through!
 
Letzte Instanz is a band that deserves more appreciation outside their home country. Maybe if their next album would be sung in English it could be a major outbreak for them. But for now I’m afraid they’ll be bound to stay inside the frontiers. If you like Rammstein, or German hard rock in general definitely buy this record. It will most likely entertain you!
