***Originally released in 1983, EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN’s second album marks a radical progression in the band's sound as well as a revolutionary step forward in the realms of industrial and experimental music. Bassist MARC CHUNG and electronics engineer ALEXANDER HACKE joined the band during this time, and singer BLIXA BARGELD also became a full-time member of NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS. Despite each members' background, Einstürzende Neubauten's ethos—"Destruction is not negative, you must destroy to build"—treaded on ground that was explicitly anti-music. Through their intuitive compositional approach and application of found, industrial objects into song forms, the band's sonic trajectory was intent on generating entirely alternate modes of music-making. In contrast to the all-out destructive barrage of their debut, however, Zeichnungen Des Patienten O.T. reveals an astonishing maturity in its varied and dynamic range of textures while still being no less uncompromising.
