Die Krupps

Die Krupps is a German industrial metal/EBM band, formed in 1980 by Jürgen Engler and Bernward Malaka in Düsseldorf according to Wikipedia. I’ve been listening to Die Krupps for a long time, and I thoroughly enjoy their (electro-) industrial stuff. If you want to get into the kind of music they do, try their “The Machinists of Joy” which is pretty much “easy listening” as far as this kind of thing goes. The following track is from this CD. As I understand industrial it is a genre that has part of it origin in industrial sounds, which can by their repetitive harsh nature be the foundation of some kind of music, or as Wikipedia puts it “Industrial music is a genre of music which draws on harsh, transgressive or provocative sounds and themes.”.
