Profile:
German label
Label Code: LC 7036 / LC 07036

Zoth Ommog was a label of Music Research GmbH.
Distributed by Semaphore til 1997, then
Distributed by Connected Music Vertrieb GmbH.

Defunct German electronic music label, that started the EBM/Electro hype in Germany in 1989 and lived until late 1999. Some of the bands went to the labels unofficial successor Bloodline

The labels Metropolis and Cleopatra re-released a number of Zoth Ommog albums in the US.

Besides labels such as Off Beat, Machinery or Celtic Cirlce, Zoth Ommog was the driving force in the european electro scene for almost a decade!

The label was originally found by Talla 2XLC of Bigod 20 fame in 1989. After Talla 2XLC decided to go for a more Trance/Techno style with the labels SUCK ME PLASMA, TECHNOCLUB RECORDINGS & TETSUO RECORDINGS, the label was hand over to the A&R control of Sven Freuen. When Sven decided to leave Zoth Ommog (1994) the label was run by Alexander Hergenhahn for a short period (about 7 month) before it was taken over by Torben Schmidt (1995) of Lights Of Euphoria (founder of Infacted Recordings) who brought the label back to former strength by signing acts such as Funker Vogt, Melotron, Front 242, Numb, Front Line Assembly or In Strict Confidence to the label! After two years Dennis Ostermann (In Strict Confidence) was added to the label as its promoter. Torben & Dennis left the label in late 1998 right before it went under in late 1999. The last A&R for Zoth Ommog were Andreas Lechleiter and Vernon Baur with only releasing 4 CDs within the last 12 months of the label existence...

From the ZOT CD 100 (V/A: Zoth in Your Mind) the label uses the following format of the catalogue number for all releases (maxis, Eps, LPs):
CD: CD ZOT XXX

Therefore the last "below-100" Zoth Ommog release is "Ringtailed Snorter Sexual Child Abuse (ZOT CD 19)"

What can I say? This label produced some of the best Industrial acts that were around in Europe at the time like Leather Strip, X Marks The Pedwalk, Bigod 20, Spahn Ranch, the Psychopomps, and then introduced them to the American public via Cleopatra Records. It seems that all the good records labels died out in 1999 and this was one of many that died that year. Zoth Ommog was Europe's Wax Trax!.

I'm in complete agreement with portions of the above review. Zoth Ommog produced some of the best industrial dance tracks ever. I particularly enjoy some of the Razormaid remixes of these tracks. They are best heard on a quality PA system that has been properly equalized for its environment, although I prefer to listen to it sober. Huge subwoofers are a must; this is music that is meant to penetrate the core of your being. Don't imagine that you can know what industrial sounds like if you've never heard it on a big PA system. You can't, and those that have heard it will be at a loss to adequately describe it. It truly is otherworldly. I have never heard any mainstream dance music that comes close to the aural tsunami of industrial electronic body music (ebm). It's a shame that there are so few places where this music can be heard now. Concurrent with Zoth Ommog, there were also some other great industrial bands on the Celtic Circle label, such as yelworC, Placebo Effect, and Absent Minded.

Sometime between 1987 and 1992 "industrial music" hit its peak. Bands like Front 242, Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, Laibach, Clock DVA and Ministry ruled the clubs and better college radio stations. This was strong, dark, powerful and otherworldly music - the type of music that rattles right through you. The Zoth artists had forged a new sound, which you can hear it’s effect even today, in many different styles of electronic and dance music. Though it’s dated, it still sounds GREAT, especially when you compare it to the weak crap that passes for music today.

The key to listening to Zoth Ommog music is listening to it loud as possible, in a dark room, while inebriated. Listening to Zoth Ommog music through head phones is a crime... it's just wrong. You need to experience the deep synthesized bass and pulsing beats. You need to share the screaming vocals and piercing, bubbling synths with as many drunken dancing freaks as possible, while your bones are shaking and you're loving every minute of it!

Damn, I wish it was '92 again, if just for a day.
