Eisbrecher is a German rock/electronic music band that consists primarily of Alexx Wesselsky (Vocals) and Noel Pix (Lead Guitar/Programming), with live support of Jürgen Plangger (Guitar), Olli Pohl (Bass), René Greil (Drums), and Max "Maximator" Schauer (Keyboards/Programming). Their style belongs to the Neue Deutsche Härte (New German Hardness) sub-genre. In the US and Canada, their record label is Dancing Ferret Discs.
The band's name in translation from German means "Icebreaker". The band's lyrics and slogans often include terms of ice and sailing, such as "Ahoi" (Ahoy) and "Es wird kalt" (It's getting cold). The band's frontman, Alexx Wesselsky, often wears naval and military clothing in performances.
After leaving Megaherz due to creative differences in 2003, Alexx Wesselsky got together with Noel Pix, who composed the synths and programming for Megaherz's albums Himmelfahrt and Kopfschuss.
While the debut album, Eisbrecher, released in early 2004, (featuring a song also named Eisbrecher), had more of an electronic sound, its next release, Antikörper, released in October 2006, had a far heavier, metallic style. However, the band remains true to its roots, and the similarity between albums is not entirely unrecognizable, ensuring the group's identity remains firmly attached to the industrial metal genre. The first 5000 copies of the debut Cd included a blank CD along with permission for purchases to legally copy the music onto the blank. This was done as a protest against what the band felt was a "criminalization" of fans.
A single, "Kann denn Liebe Sünde Sein," from Eisbrecher's as-then-unreleased third album was released on July 18, 2008 in Germany and reached 3rd place on the German Alternative charts. The album Sünde was released on August 22,2008 in Germany and debuted on the German top 20 album charts at the 18th position. The band has performed at (Summer Breeze Open Air,M'era luna & Zita Rock) Festivals. In 2009 the band will perform at the (Amphi festival,Wave-Gotik-Treffen and Castle Rock) festivals.
Anna Schneider from the Eisbrecher webpage has stated that there were plans for two music videos. One being "This is Deutsch" and "Kann denn Liebe Sünde sein", but Eisbrecher has decided to work on new material and live shows. Both Anna and Alexx have stated that a new release is scheduled for Autumn 2009.
