Biography

OOMPH! is an industrial rock band from the neue deutsche härte scene.

OOMPH! consists of:
Dero Goi (vocals, drums)
Robert Flux (guitar, mixing)
Andreas Crap (lead guitar, keyboards)
Leo (live drums)
Hagen (live bass)

The band was formed in 1989 in Wolfsburg, Germany. They are (next to Rammstein and Die Krupps) founders of the new fusion of hard metal music and industrial sounds known as Neue Deutsche Härte, though OOMPH! owed a lot to Nitzer Ebb in their first album. (It is interesting to note that Die Krupps and Nitzer Ebb released a single - “The Machineries of Joy” - together in 1989, the same year OOMPH! was founded.)

OOMPH!’s change of style between their self-titled debut (1992) and its successor “Sperm” (1994), leaning more heavily to a guitar-driven metal sound without ever giving up their electronic roots, inspired numerous musicians, most famously Rammstein, to follow their lead. (Rammstein have cited OOMPH! in several interviews as their main inspiration.)

OOMPH! released their first album on Jor’s Machinery label, then releasing their consecutive albums on its sister-label Dynamica. They stayed with Jor, until his labels disappeared during the acquisition by Sanctuary Records at around 1996/1997.

It was Virgin Schallplatten where OOMPH! finally signed, because Virgin had asked way before Rammstein became successful (according to an OOMPH! interview). Between 1998 and 2001 they released three albums on the Virgin label, fulfilling their contract, but did not continue, feeling that the record company never fully explored their potential. With the benefits of major-label status however, OOMPH! gained a larger following, and toured with labelmates Skunk Anansie in 1999.

    Das neue Album ist schön. Sie haben versprochen, dass es "heavy" sein und es ist. Dero hat immer noch schöne Stimme. И да, альбом тяжелый в сравнении с предыдущим, а не с oomph'92 или sperm. Вряд ли вообще кто-либо из групп, начинающих играть как околоиндастриал, вернутся к нему.
