Info: Mastermind Jürgen Engler is a visionary, that stamps the German music scenery since decades with lasting effect.
In the late seventies he was one of the first German punks with his band "Male" and took Campino with on tour, before there were "Die toten Hosen" generally.
In the eighties he found "Die Krupps" with his congenial partner Ralf Dörper, who is also responsible for many texts since "Wahre Arbeit Wahrer Lohn".
The band became the motivating force of the industrial- and EBM-movement.
As in the nineties the scene was also collected by the mainstream, they integrated hard thrash-guitars in their sound and became- next to Nine Inch Nails and Ministry- the most important stimulus of electro-metal-music, which also inspired many bands of the genre "Neue deutsche Härte".
With their new album "V - Metal Machine Music", which relates to the album "IV - Paradise Now", they go on with this heavy sound after they released "The Machinists of Joy" two years ago, which focused a lot on electro-machine-legged.
