Alter Der Ruine


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Alter Der Ruine was brainspawned in 2005 as a device to get soft shoes to tap to a heavy beat. To compound this simple plan an intricate execution was employed. Long story short 2 Mikes and 1 Jacob got together and made a racket that took the scenic route to its destination.

Pooling enough influence to inspire even the laziest artist, ADR set its sights to constantly evolve and explore areas unfamiliar to them. The end result rests in a sound strikingly familiar that lounges in its own swanky world. A swanky world where sleaze and serious had an ugly, humor filled love child that craved synthesizers and something to snap its fingers to. Luckily Alter Der Ruine exists for them.
Do they exist for you…

    Singing is great on the new stuff, I liked some of the older 'noise' stuff but they really came into their own and created something unique

    Son of a Bitch is an AMAZING album! It's just pure non-stop cackling glee rush madness, already among my favourite releases this year.

    "I'm a man, dammit! I'm gonna go out there and meet me a woman! A smart sexy woman with great big ovaries, what'da say!" Best sample from Stella that could ever be used.

    Haha! Just saw you guys at your in-store performance at Dancing Ferret Discs with Nachtmahr the other night. AWESOME SHOW! The most fun I've had at a show in a LOooong time. The best noise performers I've seen period (and I seen 'em all) and one of the best industrial performances. Good luck on your tour and can't wait for ya'll to come around again!

    Very nice rhythmic noise which later acquired certain TBM influences. But I think they need more vocals track like a "State Of Ruin" gem. And two new songs are just great!
