Hanzel und Gretyl started in 1993, & then made their first demo "Kindermusik" in 1994. They gave their demo to Energy Records in Manhattan & were immediately signed. In 1995 their first actual album, "Ausgeflippt" was released. Then the duo (Vas & Loopy) then formed a live band with Ginger Bread on bass & the Pat 5000 on drums. Having only five live shows Immediately following the success of Ausgeflippt HuG returned to the Studio & created their next opus "Transmissions from Uranus" which was released in 1997. "Transmissions from Uranus" was focused on Astrological, Sci-Fi, and futuristic influences incorporated with a more Techno/Metal vibe. Shortly afterwards, Hanzel und Gretyl's Energy Records gradually went out of business, this gave way to a long legal situation which unfortunately halted the progression of HuG. Then finally in 2002 they signed with Metropolis Records. For 2003, their much anticipated third epic album, Über Alles.
