Wumpscut

Another in the line of '90s goths who forsook guitars for the sampler and synthesizer, Rudy Ratzinger's :wumpscut: project was born in 1991 when Ratzinger released his first cassette-only albums, Defcon and Small Chambermusicians. Vuz Records signed the German to their fold by the following year, and after a release on a 1993 Vuz compilation (New Forms of Entertainment), the first :wumpscut: album, Music for a Slaughtering Tribe, appeared in December 1993. After the release of the Dried Blood EP on Ant-Zen Records in 1994, Ratzinger formed his own Beton Kopf Media label by 1995 and released both another EP and a full-length that year (Gomorrha and Bunkertor 7, respectively). After the appearance of :wumpscut: on the US compilation The Remix Wars -- alongside Haujobb -- the Metropolis label signed Ratzinger to an American deal and re-released the entirety of his work, followed by the new full-length Embryodead. Born Again followed in 1998, and two years later :wumpscut: returned with Bloodchild. The aggro-industrial tinged Wreath of Barbs illustrated Ratzinger's fondness for dance music's past and present when it was issued in fall 2001. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Heard this band on my EDM Pandora channel and have been hooked ever since. 'Wreath of Barbs' is my fave - very dark, spooky, broody, just fantastic! Ratzinger's use of samples, synth voices, esp. 'glass bell' voices, is astoundingly good. Fan 4Life!
My friend Stacy sang on bunker gate 7 in German.
Darker than any guitar band
Aaaaaahhhhh yeah!! Every single melody encodes into my MRna :) It's simply magical:)

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Don't read this because it actually works. You will
all time fave. alluring
Wumpscut kicks a** man so dark n evil mixed with a little cocaine it seems just pure bliss in my ear buds
When I first heard one of their songs, Just A Tenderness, I immediately fell in love. Absolutely brilliant.

The bio for :Wumpscut: is one of the worst ones I have ever read. How do we get it changed as it does ZERO justice to this genius of a man.
Wicked
Rammstein these guys rock

:D

Fantastic band. Powerful compositions and aggressive sounds. Wonderful arrangement.
these bios are pretty terrible usually, they really should just copy/paste from the band pages
Old bio, please update this.
i think it odd that they compare with decoded feedback
These are all bands to check out for a good feel of what I like to call Core Industrial sounds, but all of these will come shallow in comparison to :Wumpscut. They seem to have a natural inclination for how it should be done and it reverberates within your soul.
@ Necrophoria: No one does it quite like :Wumpscut. Grendal & Tactical Sekt have the most comparable sound and voice. Combichrist has a more aggressive attack but has a similar punch and is a fav of mine. God Module doesn't have the heavy beats, but has the right spirit. Blutengel has a softer & more symphonic/dr a m a t i c version. Retrosic puts on a punk spin and it works quite well. There are more techno styles like Suicide Commando.

Awesome, so many songs that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up!
