I know that there's already a thread for German bands
but in my opinion this band deserves a thread of their own.

Here's some info about the band (found from wikipedia):

Quote:
The band was formed in 1989 in Wolfsburg, Germany. They are (next to KMFDM and Die Krupps) founders of the new fusion of hard metal music and industrial sounds known as Neue Deutsche Härte, though OOMPH! owed a lot to Nitzer Ebb in their first album. (It is interesting to note that Die Krupps and Nitzer Ebb released a single - The Machineries of Joy - together in 1989, the same year OOMPH! was founded.)

OOMPH!'s change of style between their self-titled debut (1992) and its successor Sperm (1994), leaning more heavily to a guitar-driven metal sound without ever giving up it electronic roots, inspired numerous musicians, most famously Rammstein, to follow their lead. (Rammstein have quoted OOMPH! in several interviews as their main inspiration.)

OOMPH! released their first album on Jor's Machinery label, then releasing their consecutive albums on its sister-label Dynamica. They stayed with Jor, until his labels disappeared during the acquisition by Sanctuary Records at around 1996/1997.

It was Virgin Schallplatten where OOMPH! finally signed, because Virgin had asked way before Rammstein became successful (according to an OOMPH! interview). Between 1998 and 2001 they released three albums on the Virgin label, fulfilling their contract, but did not continue, feeling that the record company never fully explored their potential. With the benefits of major-label status however, OOMPH! gained a larger following, and toured with labelmates Skunk Anansie in 1999.

In 2004 OOMPH! released their first single (Augen auf!) on a new label, this time on Supersonic Records, part of the Sony BMG group of music companies. It marks their first Number One hit ever in Germany, thus eventually bringing forth their major commercial breakthrough. It became part of the FIFA 2005 soundtrack.

The band's ninth record, GlaubeLiebeTod was released in March 2006, including the controversial single (Gott ist ein Popstar) and its follow-up (Das letzte Streichholz).


Albums

+OOMPH! (1992)
+Sperm (1994)
+Defekt (1995)
+Wunschkind (1996)
+Unrein (1998)
+Plastik (1999)
+Ego (2001)
+Wahrheit oder Pflicht (2004)
+GlaubeLiebeTod (2006)

Here's two of my favourite vids from OOMPH!

Das letzte Streichholz (The Last Matchstick)

Brennende Liebe (Burning Love) -My personal fav!!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dizKg8s3 ... 1%20videos

They are now my second favourite German band after Rammstein 8)

Any Oomph! fans here? Or am I alone?

@shalft: it's OK, everyone has a right to their own opinion.

@Megalomaniac: I haven't yet found the new album.. But I did find
'Wahrheit oder Pflicht' album today, the limited edition 8)
I'm loving the album! :twisted: Oomph! rocks!!!!!! :twisted: :twisted:

Hopefully I'll find the new album soon too.. I love 'Gott ist ein popstar'!

@MD: I'm sure you'll love the band 8) Most Rammstein fans do. :D
The singer is really charismatic.. and a complete wacko on stage LOL!

They're a really energic liveband :fire: Gawd I hope to see them live!!

I like them well enough to buy a CD or two.

Hey...Is it just me, or does the blue eyed dude next to Dero have more
than a passing resemblance to RichCuddleBums? Can anyone else see it?

Thanks!!!

RE: The Making of Supernova - Does anyone know the proper title to that funny little song Dero's singing???? The lyrics go something like: "Bird bird bird it's the bird is the word....bird, bird, bird...." Catchy...but I can't think of the song title. I think it was used in a commercial over here a few years ago.
Can anyone help with this mystery?

"Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen, 1963. Intense lyrics in this song. :P
