They Are Kranken Welpen!

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

Kranken Welpen

Part Spinal Tap, part Hogan’s Heroes with teeth, these take no prisoners, self-proclaimed “gypsy punk rock legends” do much more than just play music. Their weekly serial audio drama, General Kranken Haus (episodes are featured on my DIY rock Bull Pit Podcast) reveals a layered and well thought-out mythology leaving one wondering if they are even human.

Their Gogol Bordello-inspired, riff-laden brand of metal is littered with militant posturing. Vocals, shared by Kommandant Kranken Chaos (guitar) and Professor Slaughter (bass, assorted power tools and other devices of destruction), deliver over-the-top, absurdly farcical lyrics with such ego and conviction that you will very likely find yourself on the floor laughing in hysterics (but don’t tell them that, they take themselves VERY SERIOUSLY)!

Check them out on Myspace here.
