KMFDM (1984-present): a Industrial Metal band from Germany.


ounded by En-Ensch, Sascha Konietzko and Nainz Watts, KMFDM (which apparently means Keine Mehrheit Fur Die Mitleid german for No Compassion for the Majority) would become one of the pioneers of the industrial metal movement, a movement that swepped Europe by the end of the 1980s and grew big in North America by the middle of the next decade giving rise to such acts as Front 242, Young Gods and Nitzer Ebb.

They made their debut with an anonymously titled German only released album in 1986 with the follow-up, What Do You Know Deutschland?, in 1988. They would then become a part of the expanding 'Wax Trax' label empire, a company who boasted the likes of Revolving Cocks and Ministry in its catalogue. Don't Blow Your Top (1988) and UAIOE (1989) would soon follow. Their pounding beats and chugging guitars played in a nihilistic minimalist fashion got them a wider audience for the follow up succession of releases including Naive (1990), Money (1992), Sucks (1993) featuring Svet Am and Mark Durante replacing Watts (and adding a new character), Angst (1993) and Nihil (1995).

After signing to 'TVT', the home of Nine Inch Nails, and now at the top of their popularity as the Industrial movement washed ashore into America they would release Xtort in 1996 to be followed by Symbols in 1997, but in a sudden twist of fate they bade farewell with the aptly titled Adios in 1999.
