Die Krupps


A German post punk/industrial/EBM/metal band formed in Düsseldorf in October 1980 by Jürgen Engler and Bernward Malaka who had played together in Germany´s alledged first punk band Male.
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.

After a hiatus from 1997-2005 the band is active again both in studio and on the global stages. Current key personnel: Jürgen Engler, Ralf Dörper, Marcel Zürcher.
