A powerful contender for the title of "the best bandname ever", Armageddon Dildos were formed in late 80s (various source state different years of formation, from 1986 to 1990) and became one of the best known old school EBM bands signed to Zoth Ommog Records in early 90s. This album, however, has a much more "modern" kind of sound, and in my opinion, it's the best one in their discography. I found out about it because of a review in the Vibrations of Doom zine, and it caught my attention because of the unusual name of the band (which turned out to be a slang name for nuclear warheads). After checking it out, I wasn't disappointed at all, especially by the tracks like "Götter Der Nacht" and "Traurige Nation". Some (but not many) of tracks on "Morgengrauen" have female vocals. AD apparently don't have a Bandcamp page, and almost all the download links for "Morgengrauen" seem to be dead, but this one seems to be working by now.
