Biography

(1999 – present)

Unheilig (German for “Unholy”) is a German band that features a variety of influences including various and styles as well as harder, nihilistic . In 1999, together with Grant Stevens and José Alvarez-Brill (also of Wolfsheim, Joachim Witt, and De/Vision), the foundation for Unheilig came into being from a vision of singer Der Graf (born Bernd Heinrich Graf). Their songs have fused heavy guitars, dancable beats, and infectious synth-driven melodies with Der Graf’s brooding croon and have met with considerable success.

The band principally consists of Der Graf (“The Count”) along with various musical partners. He has been accompanied for live shows with musicians Christoph “Licky” Termühlen, Henning Verlage, and Martin “Potti” Potthoff. The group’s debut, ‘Phosphor’, came out in 2001. Their fans believe that their eclectic style features a very appealing combination of sounds, unlike a lot of bands that play a similar mix of elements, while also giving a nice depth of atmosphere. As well, Unheilg are stylistically connected to the ‘dark culture’ that has arisen among many of the youth.

    Unheilig ist richtig lächerlich geworden, ihr müsst euch mal die alten Alben anhören, die waren gute Gothic Platten. Das war der Graf daraus gemacht hat, ist nur noch eine geldgeile Mainstreammaschinerie. Was der Graf von sich gibt, glaube ich ihm nicht, er will nur Kohle, mehr nicht.

    The new album is truly amazing. But more fo the same. Something's missing still. I think, loving the band, that it's the proper time to let go. A good end for an excellent project.

    Ach new album is perfect....Echo, Zwischen Licht und Schatten, dem Himmel so nah, absolutely best ones...and as always those amazing Intros and Outros- the mark feature of Unheilig since Moderne Zeiten. Der Graf ends with class. i hope he will find some time in future and that he will create at least small EP someday :)

    "Im Wesentlichen hören sich Unheilig an, als spielte ein dramatisch gestimmter Johannes B. Kerner Rammstein nach."

    Gipfelstürmer is spectacular! Definitely better than Lichter Der Stadt, back to the glory days of Unheilig! This should've been the follow-up to Grosse Freiheit!!!!
