K.M.F.D.M. - Naïve

In 1990, although still based in Germany, K.M.F.D.M. were hot off an American tour with Ministry and had now signed to Wax Trax! Records for all territories. The first album from this new association was Naïve released towards the end of 1990. It was very successful and cemented K.M.F.D.M. in both Wax Trax! and industrial music lore.

However, problems were afoot. First, there were legal issues over several tracks: "Liebeslied" sampled Carl Orff's cantata Carmina Burana recording of "O Fortuna", "Godlike" sampled "Angel Of Death" by Slayer and "Go To Hell" utilised a riff from "Metal Militia" by Metallica! A few years later Orff's publisher threatened the band with legal action and thus the album was completely recalled making all original editions very collectable. In its place a remixed version, Naïve Hell To Go, was released early in 1994. Secondly, by the end of their tour in 1990 Sascha Konietzko and En Esch had fallen out which led to complications for what would become their next album, Money (see last week's article for that story).

Most of the original Naïve album would finally see the light of day again in 2006 when Metropolis Records remastered and reissued the album albeit with an edited version of "Liebeslied"! This remastered version is also available digitally including in the lossless FLAC format.

All the original album editions are collectable because they were withdrawn. For the singles look out for the rarer Wax Trax! Europe editions.

BONUS

With the withdrawal of the original Naïve album and subsequent release of Naïve Hell To Go we're taking a look at some other unusual K.M.F.D.M. releases. First up, there's the very first K.M.F.D.M. early 80s era recordings under the title Opium officially made available again by the band themselves in 2002 and by Metropolis Records in 2013. Next up is the 84-86 compilation officially released by the band themselves in 1992 on cassette and in 2004 as a limited edition double CD. Wax Trax! / TVT Records put out a lovely limited edition red vinyl 12" single, Power, in 1996 (and also look out for the vinyl/CD single promo editions). There are also a couple of promo only singles including Megalomaniac and Anarchy both from 1997. Finally, there's the Mortal Kombat Annihilation Original Motion Picture Soundtrack released by TVT Soundtrax and promoted by two different split singles, both with K.M.F.D.M. on them: Megalomaniac / Panik Kontrol (split with Psykosonik) + Megalomaniac / Engel (split with Rammstein).
