Rasthof Dachau is an Austrian power-electronics/industrial band consisting of Max Presch & M. Sägmüller, and one of Steinklang Industries premiere bands.
Their first release "Schmerztherapie '93," a split VHS of the legendary performance in Salzburg with Genocide Organ. Rasthof Dachau's part included sound material exclusively generated from human breathing and electricity without use of any instruments or synthetic sound source.
Later they released "Blut Und Boden," their highly acclaimed record which depicted their older sound. After various splits, guest appearances, and side project releases, Rasthof Dachau returned after 7 years with their latest full-length, "Prison Poems," a conceptual work about the Irish civil-rights movement in the 1970's. With this album Rasthof Dachau proves once again to be an important act on the front of European industrial music.
Rasthof Dachau side-projects include A.R.S., Fall Weiss, The Final Resistance, Men Behind The Sun and Krieger.
