Apoptygma Berzerk were never my taste. Too melodic and soft. In the end they play synth pop, even if people keep calling them EBM or even industrial. It's funny that the dance floor mass went so crazy about "Love Never Dies" and its Carmina Burana samples, when KMFDM already did that 6 years before on their "Liebeslied".
