production

The musical background of the rapped verses is made up of hip-hop beats that were contributed by a large number of producers. It starts , the first track on the album, was produced by Basstard himself. Massaka Beats was responsible for the music for Kino Tag , FAK for Legal, Illegal, Scheißegal und Von then bis now , Syndikate Beats for Demons Day , Balkan Beats for Kämpf , Flash Gordon for Dragon Poison and Crizdova for Take My Hand . Known as a member of the VS Mafia group, Woroc was through the songs Kein Alibi and Schwarzer Marktalso involved as a producer. The rapper Blokkmonsta also contributed the music to Monster . Undercover Molotov is responsible for the beats for The Last Judgment and The Imperator , High Hat for Halloween 2008 and 666 and Voodoo Beats for Durch den Nebel . In addition, two pieces were created through the collaboration with DJ Korx, with whom Basstard released the joint album Verdammt in 2007. This is plastic world and it's coming . The mastering of the songs Halloween 2008 , Through the fog, Plastikwelt and 666 was taken over by Beatzarre. [1]

reception

criticism

The website Hiphop-Jam.net awarded the album three and a half of a possible five rating points. 666 is stylistically classified as "gloomy, varied, history-heavy, cold, critical and in places callous". The background music includes "lots of synths and dark pianos", which is appropriate to the subject. Basstards and Kaisa's ways of performing have improved, but lag behind the content of the pieces. In summary, the evaluating editor describes 666 as an "atmospherically successful album that can be listened to, especially on rainy and dark days". [3]

indexing

666 was indexed at the end of November 2010 together with the album Das Omen by the Federal Testing Office for media harmful to minors. It was placed on List A, which means that it can no longer be sold or advertised to minors. [4] [5]
