As at the end of 1980’s Bruno Kramm and Stefan Ackermann, back then young New Wave musicians, were sending their first religion-criticising demotapes they could not even imagine that this specific release would be soon defining a whole new music genre, „Neue Deutsche Todeskunst“ („new german death art“). Songs like „Gottes Tod“ and „Des Satans neue Kleider“, that are still on this new century carrying a very special magic in them, became well known hymns of the black scene in the new freshly united Germany. Since their early works „Satanische Verse“ and the album „Die Propheten“ Das Ich has been combining drama with music, expressionism with classics and electronics with gothic with the intensivity so far unexperienced in the music scene. They were acrossing boundaries and inspiring numerous bands and forms of expression with their new art.

On their extended worldwide tours in Europe, USA, South-America, Asia, Israel and Russia, Das Ich was not only strongly promoting the culture of a new and expressive but at the same time still well beware of it’s horrifying past Germany. They also helped their mother tongue, german, to finally emancipate from Schlager, folk music and Krautrock. Between their albums „Staub“, „Egodram“, „Lava“, „Antichrist“ and „Cabaret“, Stefan Ackermann and Bruno Kramm have always allowed long periods for the inspiration being able to develop their own musical language that has always been responsing to every epoch and period of time.

With their boundary-crossing, controversial and intense live shows Das Ich has developed a strong and very unique reputation that is still, over 25 years after the release of „Gottes Tod“, not comparable with any other band. Together with the metal band Atrocity, they broke through the almost impenetrable scene boundaries between metal and gothic scenes by wrapping the poet Gottfried Benn with their „Morgue“ vocalization into a disturbing sound picture, which in its time-critical presentation found the premiere in the prestigious Theater of Zürich.

Still until today „everblacks“ like „Kain und Abel“, „Von der Armut“ or the technoide VNV Nation remix version of „Destillat“ are constantly accompanying dance-floors at the worldwide Gothic parties. After very serious illness of the singer Stefan Ackermann and the political excursion of the composer Bruno Kramm, Das Ich is now retuning stronger than ever with a new line-up and is working on a soon to be released new album.



Das Ich


In 2012, Grendel returned with their full length album, entitled "Timewave Zero" on Infacted Recordings (EU) & Metropolis Records (North America). This marked a new milestone in the band's history, raising the band's profile to a whole new level, gaining critical acclaim in the media, becoming a staple DJ record and topping scene charts world wide (including DAC & GEWC). With this record the live act was expanded and the band continued to develop it's sound.

The band is currently completing work on their latest album, "Age Of The Disposable Body", which is to be released in 2017 by Infacted Recordings & Metropolis Records.


Ego Likeness is an American darkwave/industrial rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. They were formed in 1999 by artist Steven Archer and writer Donna Lynch.

Ego Likeness


Formed in 2004, FGFC820 is the harsh EBM project from well-known and respected New York City DJs, Rexx Arkana and Dräcos. Drawing on joint and separate influences ranging from old school industrial to modern gabber, Arkana and Dräcos combine to create a sound that is at once melodic and relentlessly rhythmic, "bringing the 'thump' back to EBM", as one reviewer recently put it.
