Die Krupps

Profile:
A German industrial/EBM/metal band formed in Düsseldorf in October 1980 by Jürgen Engler and Bernward Malaka.

Die Krupps' sound has developed and changed drastically over time; through noise, EBM and industrial, eventually (mid-1990s) introducing a metal sound revealing the influence of Metallica on the band, and they even recorded covers of Metallica songs.
