The leading group in the German industrial scene, Genocide Organ joined forces in 1985 and two members eventually set up the notorious label Tesco Organisation
. They have become a cult name among the followers of industrial music worldwide, due to their uncompromising attitude, brutal sounds and presentation, as well as the provocative and "politically incorrect" attitude. Their live performances are rare and legendary, involving threatening terrorist uniforms, metal junk and blow torches to build the definitive wall of industrial noise. Almost all Genocide Organ records are out of print and, due to the small number of copies pressed and the luxurious packages, are sought-after collector items.
Genocide Organ members are wrapped in mystery, the real names are unknown, during their live performances they are used to wearing masks and hoods to hide their identities. Records are credited to the pseudonyms of Wilhelm Herich
, Doc M. Riot
and D.A.X. Roland Freisler
(now active as Diutesc
) was one of the two live frontmen together with Wilhelm Herich; in the band since 1989, he left the band in 1999 and his role has been taken by Brigant Moloch
Another member of the band was Ray Treatment who was in the band from 1986-1987.
