The Review:

Hailing from Germany, Junk Farm was founded in summer 2001 by Berthold Fehmer (keyboards) and Benjamin Schippritt (guitars). They soon added the third member, for their dream of a jazz-trio, named Michael Sticken (drums).The band combined jazz fusion, funk and metal sounds, thus giving each genre a new outlook. They mix melodies and dissonant harmonies with equal ease. Just imagine those amazing jazz fusion bands from the 70ís with the harder metal bands of the 90ís and you get the picture of what Junk Farm is all about.

I have to admit on the first listen I was turned off, so I put it away until a few weeks ago then I began to fully appreciate the music. Itís a great mix of sounds that will appeal to those fusion fans as well as the metal ones. They create such a sound that breaks boundaries between experimental and catchy memorable tunes. They also do something that hasnít been done much these days, they add a sense of humor with sarcastic lyrics. This is one band you might want to take a chance with. I know if youíre unsure at first, you will become a fan of Junk Farm after several listens.
